Reflective recovery specialists work in diverse community settings designed to provide a variety of counseling, rehabilitation, and support services. Their duties vary greatly, depending on the setting in which they work and the population they serve. This Reflective Recovery from Addictions is taught at University of Pécs.


Although the specific setting may have an implied scope of practice, reflective recovery specialists are frequently challenged with children, adolescents, adults, or families that have multiple issues, such as mental health disorders and addiction, disability and employment needs, school problems or career counseling needs, and trauma. Reflective recovery specialists must recognize these issues in order to provide their clients with appropriate counseling and support.
