Navigating life without drugs and alcohol is the single most difficult task for someone who is newly sober. The emotional ups and downs of early sobriety can be a roller coaster, which all too often derails. A Sober Coach will be a guide for the addicted individual as they return home from treatment. They will be a mentor, a coach, a resource, a willing listener, and a tough advocate for sobriety. Remember, treatment must happen for most people to get sober. But in order for people to stay sober, they usually need other recovery services within a Continuum of Care.
Our Sober Coaches can help.
The Sober Coach will spend 12 hours a day or more with your loved one helping them to engage in recovery activities – from cleaning up the wreckage of their drug or alcohol use, to finding housing, accompanying them to 12 Step meetings or other recovery groups, to finding an appropriate therapist, learning how to pick up the phone and say “no” to a drug dealer or drinking buddy, to celebrating a morning without a hangover. The Sober Coach will be there to hold their hand through the most difficult part of early sobriety. Equally as important, they will be there for early behavior interventions and healthy behavior modifications.
Our Sober Coaches will share their own experience, strength, and hope which they have developed in their own long-term sobriety. Personal experience with addiction is the single most important factor in developing trust with someone who is newly sober.
Each Sober Coach will be selected on a case-by-case basis depending on the most appropriate fit for the individual coming out of treatment. We have Sober Coaches of varying ages, drugs of choice, sexes, and demeanor, located regionally across the country. Typically, a minimum stay for a Sober Coach is 5 days, although it is not uncommon for families to utilize our sober coaches for 30 days or longer. A Sober Coach can also facilitate a Family Reintegration with your family. Please contact us for specific details.
Keep in mind that drug addiction and alcoholism is cunning, baffling, and powerful. The strength of the cravings and desire to drink or use drugs cannot be underestimated, even after completion of a world-class treatment program. Addiction does not happen overnight, and either does recovery. It is a process, and a Sober Coach will assist and support your loved one with the challenges of their new life.
