Become a Ready Now Recovery Facilitator

Thank you for visiting our website. The fact that you clicked on this page indicates that you have some understanding of the nature of addiction and other life-controlling issues. You want to help others experience freedom, but you may not feel fully equipped. Ready Now Recovery Facilitator training enables you to facilitate a support group either in-person or virtually. We provide you with necessary resources and up to date information regarding addictions. This training will also usher you into multiple communities: your community, the Ready Now community, and the Adult & Teen Challenge community. Please watch the video below to hear from some of our facilitators, then follow the links beneath the video to become a facilitator.

I have more questions!

There is a monthly subscription fee of $10 (or $100 annually) with an initial $20 set-up fee. Click on the next tab to see what is included in the subscription.

  • Certification Card: Identifies you as an approved ATC Facilitator/Trainer

Because there is an option to become an independent contractor and receive compensation for leading a group in the Sober Peer platform (the tool that powers our virtual groups), we need to have one of two documents on file: a W9 or a signed Waiver of Compensation.

If you choose to become an independent contractor to receive compensation from facilitating a group on the Sober Peer platform, you will need to fill out a W9 form. By doing so, you will assume all responsibilities of an independent contractor.

In order to receive payment, there are two requirements that must be met:

  1. There must be a minimum of 8 participants that participate for the duration of the meeting.
  2. Each participant must pay $25.00 for the group subscription through the Sober Peer platform.

If you choose to waive any compensation from facilitating a group on the Sober Peer platform, you will need to fill out the Waiver of Compensation.

The option to receive payment for facilitating groups only applies to conducting groups on the Sober Peer Platform, not for conducting in-person groups.
