Haley Kennedy became involved in the substance use disorder and recovery field as a result of her personal experience with substance use, relapse and recovery. Her passion to help others and to give back to her community was her motive when she registered for Recovery Coach Academy through the Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery (CCAR) in October 2018. In January 2019, Haley found her calling in the fight against substance use disorder as a volunteer recovery coach with Plymouth County Outreach, conducting follow up home visits. In October 2019, she was promoted to the Lead Recovery Coach for PCO. In hopes to reach more individuals, and to fuse her penchant for creativity, with recovery coaching, she became the sole author of the PCO ‘Recovery Corner’ blog in February 2020. In October 2020, Haley accepted a role focused on her specialty, community outreach. She has helped, and continues to help, hundreds of individuals since starting with Plymouth County Outreach.
Haley is a Certified Addictions Recovery Coach through the Massachusetts Board of Substance Abuse Counselor Certification, INC.
