To arm individuals in addiction recovery with vital life skills.


Addiction tears lives apart. When people in recovery start to glue the pieces back together, they need help with everyday tasks that others often take for granted. Learning how to navigate daily living can be a challenge in itself, and it is imperative to equip individuals with strategies and skills to rebuild their lives. Research affirms that individuals in recovery may lack life skills for two reasons: they never learned the skills or may have lost the skills as a result of their prolonged substance misuse.
We offer a 6-module, evidence-based and nationally recognized life skills training program, facilitated by Certified Ammon Empowerment Coaches; all individuals with lived experience. The Empowerment Workshop Series is a holistic approach to one’s recovery process. Workshops are educational, unique, innovative and dedicated to inspiring and guiding people in early recovery. This peer-to-peer, strengths-based dynamic equips participants with the tools to improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life and reach their full potential.

Our Empowerment Coaches are Ambassadors of the Ammon Foundation and play a vital role in furthering our mission. Our Empowerment Coaches arm individuals in addiction recovery with the vital life skills to thrive and they help combat the stigma connected to the disease of addiction, by promoting that recovery is possible.

We believe in the authenticity of peers helping peers—drawing on the power of example, as well as the hope and motivation, that one person in recovery can offer to another; providing opportunities to give back to the community; and embracing the notion that both people in a relationship based on mutuality can be helped and empowered in the process.

Our Coaches are specially trained and certified to deliver our high quality, evidence-based curricula while infusing their own energy, innovation and expertise. Coaches are aware of and respect multiple pathways to recovery and receive ongoing support, supervision and professional development.
