Courtney Vorachak grew up in the Upper Valley/Lakes Region and began her career as a Peer Coach in middle school. Upon graduating from high school, she expanded her commitment to helping others by pursuing nursing education and providing outreach as a Home Health Aid. As the demand for substance use education and intervention services has grown in the past decade, Courtney’s focus shifted to Peer Recovery Coaching to help others in the community. A Recovery Coach is defined as anyone interested in promoting recovery by removing barriers and obstacles to recovery and serving as a personal guide and mentor for people seeking or already in recovery. Recovery Coaches have been trained through the Recovery Coach Academy. This training allows Courtney to assist clients with skills needed to access services and supports that will maintain and sustain recovery. In addition to providing one on one Home Health and Recovery Coach Services, Courtney facilitates CCAR courses in the community on a regular basis, that is when she is not working at our local Hospital Emergency Room helping others there. Her willingness to be of assistance to the community is unparalleled.
