In simple terms, a sober companion is someone with a solid foundation of personal recovery who assists you through the process of getting and staying sober.A sober companion, also called a sober coach, is often employed to accompany someone who leaves treatment for substance or alcohol abuse. Their focus is to provide additional support in the first few weeks or months of recovery.
These days, more and more people are engaging a sober companion to help them design and implement a personal program of recovery. Sober coach clients are often people who are unable to step away from their lives for 28 days or longer to attend a residential treatment program. There may be demanding business concerns or travel commitments that must be attend to.
Having a sober companion just might be the missing piece you need to stay away from that drink or drug.
Your sober companion is able to blend into any social situation and will always behave appropriately and with the utmost discretion. We really do understand and protect your anonymity. Your sober companion will discretely accompany you and will slide into whichever role is chosen – such as business colleague, assistant, friend or life coach. He or she will provide friendly, easy-going companionship and camaraderie in all situations.
Your sober companion has a wealth of experience, strength and hope to share with you about getting, and staying, sober. He or she, will use a holistic approach to your recovery which takes into consideration your personal requirements and encompasses your psychological, social and spiritual needs.
Your sober companion will redirect your focus when you may feel triggered to drink or pick up drugs. Often, he or she will move in to your home for 24/7 support and is also able to travel with you, especially when a trip may be a trigger for relapse (such as weddings, funerals, special events, media appearances, reunions, sports events, tours).
