What Is a Sober Companion?

Part of every journey of a recovering addict towards a sober life is dependable companions to accompany them as they process their thoughts, feelings, and concerns, in the challenging process of post-recovery. These companions help the recovering individuals transition themselves to normalcy post-rehab, especially in this crucial period when they might be vulnerable to succumbing to drug and alcohol use once again.

A sober companion also makes sure to check on the patient and make sure that they follow through with their alcohol rehab and mental health recovery regimen or residential treatment program. They may also join them during trips wherein they might be put in an uncomfortable or difficult situation. As a constant companion, they also advise making sure they make informed and deliberate choices, especially for each matter related to their past drug addiction.

These mental health companions may also come in the form of sober escorts. Although their services aren't free, they can join an individual depending on the arrangement. They are usually on-call and may be required to stay for days, weeks, or months, depending on their need, and may work closely with friends and family.

Who Are Sober Companions?

Working as a sober escort or sober companion entails great skill and a keen sense, especially when dealing with different types of recovering individuals. The companion is usually trained professionally to provide services and support to someone recovering from their addiction to drugs, as these individuals have very particular recovery needs to be met.

They put great effort into ensuring their patients are healthy and adhere to their treatment programs every single time, while also maintaining a healthy relationship with them through the course of their companionship.

Transcend's sober mentoring program employs a holistic approach when it comes to attending to the wellness and overall health treatment of our clients. Each sober companion displays excellent sobriety from alcohol or drugs and has a deep and intuitive understanding of their client's struggles as some of them have undergone the same situation before. They are also skilled in handling their emotions and those of their patients, maintaining a calm and steady attitude throughout their professional working relationship, and may also work closely with family members to help them better relate to someone in recovery.

They understand the challenging and daunting task ahead of them in providing treatment support and services to ensure that all drub rehab-related concerns are met and that they can provide wise and useful advice during and after treatment as professional companions.

How Do Sober Companions Help with Substance Abuse?

Transcend intends for its patients to feel supported as they walk down the sometimes arduous road to recovery. Therefore, our sober companion program aids in three general areas.

The first is relapse prevention. There is a sense of physical support associated with the companionship system. Depending on the arrangement, this can take several different forms. For example, a patient may feel susceptible to relapse with substance abuse during transit. Therefore, an escort companion would ensure that this does not happen. Similarly, a live-in sobriety companion proactively removes triggers and stands in the way of addiction that may occur in their newfound life.

Next, emotional support is provided to whatever extent an individual needs. Drug and alcohol addiction recovery can become a tedious mental battle, especially when people feel demotivated, unloved, invalidated, etc. Unfortunately, there are not many people who can listen from a non-judgmental perspective and give you pieces of advice, making them feel like family.

Finally, a sober companion fills the role of an accountability partner. This function may involve developing a life-changing friendship while they accompany the individual to create that extra sense of motivation since there is someone to stay clean for. Eventually, abstinence becomes the norm in their life, and the client can function optimally.

Finding a sober companion is relatively easy with Transcend. You may hire one depending on your need with the ease of coordinating with your insurance regarding coverage.

Clients require support at different levels and stages in their life, and this is the reason that the sober companion program offering exists in various forms. For example, a client may be fine at home with their family but may have reservations on the road or a client may seek 24/7 sober companion care for a while.

We would also advise you to contact us so we may discuss how applicable the program is, such as insurance coverage, for instance, and how it can optimally meet your needs long-term.

We at Transcend want you to remember that no man is an island. Humans are social creatures, and it is normal for you to rely on others for support and encouragement. Of course, we are willing to provide this for you in whatever way you may need it.
