Embark Coach Academy Colorado

 1 Voz is pleased to offer telephone recovery support (TRS); an  innovative, peer to peer, recovery support service. TRS provides weekly  phone calls to people in recovery from alcohol and/or drug addiction.  Trained TRS volunteers call to “check in” and ask how people are doing  managing their recovery. Volunteers are trained to provide support,  encouragement and information about recovery resources. TRS helps reduce  relapse and enhances the recovery experience. 1 Voz uses an online data  collection program that not only captures accurate, real time data but  automatically schedules the next call date and tracks contact history.

 The  impact on our state can be immeasurable. We know that our calls  help  people maintain their recovery and get them back on track if a  relapse  occurs. When someone tells us they have relapsed, we don’t kick  them  out of the program; we keep calling them, checking in with them,  seeing  if they want help. When someone is down, that’s when he or she  needs  the most support. Embark/PCA may be the only encouraging voice heard  at  a critical junction on the road of their recovery. TRS calls are made in 5 new counties throughout Colorado per year with the help of our regional partners.

Recovery Simply

Recover The Fun groups are centered on the creative arts and the outdoors and are designed to remind us that fun can be had without the use of substances. The purpose of the group is to provide a relaxed, friendly, and fun environment where we connect to each other and ourselves - because part of the work of recovery is relearning how to have fun. 

Play helps develop and improve social skills. Social skills are learned as part of the give and take of play. During childhood play, kids learn about verbal communication, body language, boundaries, cooperation, and teamwork. As adults, you continue to refine these skills through play and playful communication.
