FWI Video Listen to Joe Drews' overview of the Recovery Coach Certification Course.
"What I liked most about the course is that it provided a great amount of information about the addictive mindset. There are excellent tools available that I can use today. If you are working with addictive personalities it is great." - Kevin Cooper.

"What I liked most about the Certified Recovery Course was Joe. Joe is an informative, awesome, teacher who is passionate about recovery. I think the conversations were very beneficial as opposed to lecture. I really got a lot out of what he said and the discussions we had. I do believe I have learned a great deal in this class and am excited about being able to help others with this knowledge. I would absolutely recommend this course to anyone who has a passion to help others with recovery." - Donna Marie Therrien

"This course took what I learned in life coaching and adapted it in a logical way to help those in recovery. I liked the top 5 list. I would recommend this course because the recovery community needs all the support they can get. " - Dot Koller
I really enjoyed all of it. I would say I enjoyed Joe as the teacher the most. Very honest, open & up front. Great teacher and leader. I would recommend this course! Even if you were not going to go into recovery coaching, I think the information is so invaluable. Education on recovery is so key in today's society. Really, really great course!" - Lori Peters

"I liked the information to be aware of needs of others. I'd recommend the course because this area affects many who are not aware of the causes and effects of the behaviour of others." - Tamra Joy Mellor

"I liked the presentation and the course plan and content and I have had clients for three years." - David Lipman
