In this fast moving, 24-hour news cycle world, we forgot that those accused of crimes are often victims too. Abuse of illegal drugs and other substances can result in good people finding themselves in terrible situations.
Substance abuse can lead people on a downward spiral from health, wellness and prosperity to destitution and imprisonment. This destroys lives and families, and robs so many young people of their potential.
Tragically, the difference between recovery and calamity is often the presence of the right person or people, at the right time, showing someone struggling with substance abuse the way to the resources they need to escape from their situation.
BailCo Bail Bonds is commited above all to having positive role in the lives of defendants. We offer the services of a CCAR trained recovery coach, and we also train other bondsmen to become recovery coaches themselves.
If we can bail someone out and then put them on a path where they will never need us to bail them out again, we call that a job well done.
Andrew Marocchini, owner of BailCo Bail Bonds, is a CCAR trained Recovery Coach, as well as a Recovery Coach Trainer. What is a recovery coach, you might ask?
"Recovery coaches are individuals, who may or may not be in recovery themselves, who help people along the path of recovery. This can be before, during or after treatment, or even an an alternative to treatment". This definition is based on interviews with and information from Faces & Voices of Recovery, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the International Certification and Reciprocity Consortium (IC&RC), NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals (NAADAC), the Medication Assisted Recovery Support (MARS) program, managed care company Optum Behavioral Solutions, and others.
Through years of bonding out clients, the BailCo staff came to the realization that we have a unique opportunity to offer our clients the first steps to treatment or recovery. As bondsmen we are often the the first professional with whom a defendant interacts that is able to be an advocate for them: not an employee of the state, not trying to advance the process at any cost and with a legitimate interest in their well being. We realize what an important opportunity we have to identify situations where substance abuse is a factor. We became determined to promote recovery by removing barriers and obstacles to recovery and serving as a personal guide and mentor for people seeking or already in recovery.
