Are you taking initiative and trying to get past your drug or alcohol addiction? Going to a treatment center and committing yourself to bettering your life is step number one. However, it is what happens when you are leaving the treatment center that results in a setback. Heading home after trying to get sober presents many challenges.
Sure, you can look at it as a mind over matter occurrence and just say no, but that is not so easy. Trying to battle addiction alone can be a burden that causes more harm than good. With your profession or personal life, remaining in a healthy environment can be out of your control. Programs only last so long, and soon you are going to have to travel home. Unable to control temptations, we find ourselves slipping back into addiction. When you need additional assistance with your recovery program, there are coaches and companions more than willing to help you. That is where a sober companion comes into play. They are by your side to help you complete your recovery without a relapse or setback.
What are the advantages of using a sober companion?
Sober coaches and companions are viewed as a sort of chaperone, but it is supervision that ultimately helps you succeed in your recovery. You do not want to tackle the problem yourself, but you also do not want word of your addiction to spread. A sober companion was once in the same situation you are; battling addiction and trying to stay on the path to recovery. They know what you are dealing with and the temptations that present themselves. Having a sober companion by your side will give you peace of mind that you all reach sobriety.
No matter if you have had one treatment or multiple relapses, there is a certain structure needed to tackle the obstacles you are presented. The recovery aspect and sober lifestyle can be unfamiliar, and your companion is there to help you form healthy habits, gain new hobbies, and develop new skills to keep your mind off of drugs and alcohol. Our escorts and companions are non-biased and have experienced what you are going through, and they want to see you climb out of the dark place you are in. Their support motivates you from a mental, physical, and emotional aspect.
Help when you need it.
All addictions are treated differently. You could have the full support of your family through this trying time in your life, or your actions could have steered them away from you. When your family and friends are not by your side, the path to recovery becomes much more difficult.
More than just a chaperone, you can confide in your companion when you are feeling tempted to slip back into the bottle or the needle. They will provide valuable advice and help when you are struggling. We all have bad days when we are trying to remain sober, and your sober coach provides the help and support through the most trying times of your recovery.
Treatment facilities provide the benefit of a healthy environment. When you step into an airport to return home, or get behind the wheel with mixed thoughts, our sober companions provide a clean transition and help you stay motivated through your transportation to and from rehab facilities.
Sober coaches are tasked with finding your strengths and weaknesses, and setting a plan that best assists in breaking down the barriers of your addiction. We set weekly goals and are committed to seeing you succeed in your recovery. Whether you are in a sober living facility, an outpatient program, in your home, or have recently relapsed; we are here with personalized treatment for your situation. It is hard to achieve happiness when you are going through recovery, and we help you build self-esteem and overcome challenges to remain confident throughout your recovery.
Recovering addicts who have a sober companion by their side are more likely to achieve their goals. When you need a trustworthy companion who is committed and dedicated to your wellbeing and approach to sobriety, contact us to see how we can help. There are companions for teens and adults alike, and we have your best interests at heart.
