When Recovery Is Personal


Alison Broderick, NCRC-II, CPS-AD Founder/Owner Ever since my recovery journey began in February 2011, I have yet to encounter an individual who has found lasting success by recovering on his or her own. I am not implying it's impossible, but this is what I believe to be true: substance use disorders and other mental health conditions are characterized by intense isolation. In order to fully recover, one must lean on the support of others to find freedom and happiness. The opposite of addiction is connection. My name is Alison Broderick. I am a Nationally Certified Recovery Coach-Level II (NCRC-II); a Georgia Certified Peer Specialist - Addictive Diseases (CPS-AD); and the founder/owner of The Recovery Coach, LLC. Having worked in the mental and behavioral health industry since 2012, I have had the opportunity to watch firsthand what works... and what doesn't. To witness the transformation of an individual who has recovered from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body is nothing short of miraculous. Recovery is the expectation. Everyone can recover using a pathway that suits his or her lifestyle. My friend, there is always hope.




Dare to Dive Deep


What you cannot do alone, we can do together. It's not just about putting an end to the maladaptive behaviors; it's about achieving whole-body healing and getting to the root cause of your substance use disorder and/or unhealthy coping mechanisms. If you are ready to give this recovery thing a real shot and achieve lasting success, The Recovery Coach wants to hear from you. Life is meant to be enjoyed and lived well.

From Hardship to Hope


Jeanne Schultz, M.Ed., CPRC Certified Peer Recovery Coach My name is Jeanne Schultz and I am a person in long-term recovery. I am from Pittsburgh, PA; grew up in Los Angeles; and have been living in Atlanta since 1989. Frequent moves during my childhood left their marks, but today I am grateful for the many blessings that have occurred along the way. Like many, our family has been coping with the disease of addiction and mental illness for more than 10 years. While navigating a family member’s treatment and subsequent recovery, my reliance on unhealthy coping mechanisms increased. Unfortunately, as circumstances improved for others, my disease gained momentum.




A Teachable Teacher


In early 2017, I decided to give recovery a try and slowly realized I needed to rely on others to help me open up to the possibility of change. I knew I could not achieve rich and lasting recovery alone, and that my situation was not hopeless. So, I became teachable. As a retired middle school teacher of 26 years—with a master’s degree in Education from Mercer University—it was humbling, yet refreshing, to switch roles and show up as a 'student' in recovery.




Paying It Forward


Recovery has allowed me to be more present, open and honest in all facets of my life, especially with my loved ones. Today, our family is certainly not perfect, but we are more authentic and happier than we have ever been. I have found value in our shared experiences and now strive to bring this same hope to others. In the summer of 2020, I became a Certified Peer Recovery Coach (CPRC) through the Alcohol & Drug Addiction Certification Board of Georgia. I welcome the opportunity to be a part of yours or your loved one’s recovery journey. Through my own lived experience, I know that change is possible!
