CurriculumConsulting & Design

Peer recovery training courses are vital in preparing coaches, support workers, and other professionals for addiction-focused healthcare settings. However, substance use and recovery are multifaceted topics that can be challenging to teach and learn.

Develop and improve your training courses with guidance from CHOICES Addiction & Recovery Education. We offer peer support curriculum consulting that helps you tailor courses to the needs of healthcare professionals and individuals with loved ones in recovery. Ginger Ross, our consultant, focuses on the overall course blueprint to design a curriculum that effectively educates trainees and promotes personal self-development. Implement teaching strategies and establish learning objectives that help professionals provide the best service to people in recovery from substance use problems.

Keynote Speaker for Your Event

Ginger Ross is also an addiction recovery keynote speaker presenting invaluable information and insights about substance use. She shares her story of overcoming alcohol addiction that will resonate with your event’s attendees. Her presentation lets people see addiction recovery more positively and helps improve relationships with people who have a substance use disorder.

Book Ginger as your keynote speaker, and let her presentation open people’s eyes to the truth about addiction and recovery.
