About Me

The Short

Eliott Ferguson is a CAPRC I trained Peer Recovery Coach with 12+ years in the addiction recovery field. He does tele-coaching from his home office where he is surrounded by some of his favorite guitars, and is assisted by his K9 coaching associates Tippy (a very entitled Boxer) and Emi (a Terrier mix diva).

The Long

 I went through addiction rehabilitation in Indianapolis in 2009. Since then, I have worked hard to enhance and deepen my own recovery as well as study the multiple paths that others who fight addiction have found successful. In 2016 I began sponsoring others who were beginning their own recovery. After having much experience in this mentoring process, I decided to become a certified peer recovery coach in order to offer my experience to a wider variety of individuals who might benefit from my experiences over the years. I now work as a contracted coach for therapists as well as a solo coach. Aside from coaching I play music for my dogs and spend as much time as I can with my wife.

My Philosophy

There are many paths to recovery. I have studied and have been trained in multiple avenues that can lead to a healthy life. My overall focus as a coach is helping my clients set goals (if they don’t already have them) that will improve their life. My coaching strategy does not require following a twelve step process (although I am extremely well versed in it) or a religious guided recovery. As a solo coach, I strive to individualize the techniques I have learned for each of my clients. If I am working in tandem with a client’s therapist, I am very comfortable adding my experience and knowledge to the goals set by the therapist.

In order to maximize the probability of success and overall wellness, our focus will include the following :

  • Helping you form a plan of action

  • Directing you to the right resources

  • Providing accountability and support

  • Offering guidance in developing new behavior patterns

  • Helping you recognize and view your progress objectively

  • Assisting in harm reduction for addictive behaviors
