Overcoming many forms of addiction—be it substance abuse, alcoholism, and process addiction—may be a considerable burden to process for those suffering from it but not if you have to help you along the way. Even post-treatment, people who have long endured their battle with addiction are at risk of relapsing due to many factors.

Fortunately, sober escorts can provide comfort and assurance to recovering patients as they transition post-rehab slowly while gaining a sense of normalcy in their former lives. Transcend Recovery Community recovery programs and services ensure that people suffering from their addiction get all the help and assistance they need.

What Are Sober Escorts?

As individuals who underwent therapy transition back to the outside world, the very thought of “going back” often elicits fear. It is estimated that the relapse rate for substance use disorders ranges between 40% to 60%, similar to chronic diseases such as hypertension or asthma. That’s where sober escorts come into place. They mainly provide a sense of safety and stability to patients post-recovery. These companions are trained and have worked extensively in addiction treatment coupled with any occurring mental health issues.

Sober escorts not only provide much-needed emotional support to people who have undergone therapy. They also guide and keep track of post-therapy individuals as they gradually shift into healthy routines necessary for their continuous improvement.

These sober companions usually perform their duties in different arrangements. Escorts must help them abstain and veer away from temptation—most especially when situational triggers are present, take, for example, alcohol at a social gathering or party.

Apart from being an essential source of a recovering individual’s strength and motivation, sober escorts also accompany them while traveling. It could be stress-inducing meetings, like traveling to treatment centers, sobriety meetings, or therapy sessions, to prevent relapse as they continue post-rehab progress. After-care programs and sober escorting are essential steps for people to guarantee their long-term development and recovery from addiction and mental health issues.

Who Are Sober Escorts?

Dealing with individuals on the road to recovery requires a precise skillset to accommodate their needs fully. Sober escorts have a unique sense of understanding when communicating and assisting in addiction recovery and process addictions. They are highly-intuitive companions who understand the needs of post-rehab patients backed by their years of experience.

The majority of people who volunteer as sober escorts are usually those who have once undergone recovery themselves. Their deep understanding of what it feels like to go through the emotional rollercoaster of rehabilitation from their former experiences helps them empathize with patients further.

It allows them to provide a safe space and form a profound connection with recovering addicts. Similarly, sober mentoring programs empower patients to lead a normal life post-therapy.

However, sober escorts are not expected to be full-time caretakers of patients post-treatment. They are not responsible for having full authority over their actions, such as dictating their daily schedule. They counsel them as they handle daily decisions and responsibilities, instilling full accountability in their activities. Sober escorts help individuals develop independence at their own comfortable pace.

How Do Sober Escorts Help You?

The path to rehabilitation is a burdensome load to carry for just one person. Therefore, the aid of another companion to help you realize your goal to full recovery is necessary. Sober escorts provide support in three core areas:

1. Relapse prevention – Having a companion by your side at all times keeps you in check of your urges or in situations that you find difficult traversing on your own. Sober escorts offer assurance in times when they feel most vulnerable to relapse, most especially during transit. Thus, these companions ensure that this is ultimately avoided at all costs. They proactively remove triggers that prohibit you from living an addiction-free lifestyle and encourage you to engage in healthy habits.

2. Constant emotional support – As recovery is easier said than done. The relentless internal conflict that former addicts have in themselves makes transitioning to a post-therapy life more challenging. There’s a tendency for them to feel unloved, invalidated, leading them to sink down further to depression. That is why you need empathy from people you trust, where you can discuss your innermost thoughts and feelings—a space without judgment or bias freely.

3. Accountability – As sober escorts develop a relationship founded in trust and friendship with you, they can instill in you a sense of responsibility for your life. This can be done at a gradual pace without feeling too intrusive or rushed. They can help motivate you to continue living a clean life where abstinence is the norm.

Is A Sober Escort Right For Me?

Seeking the need for a sober escort is the sole decision that you can only make. This will wholly depend on the situation that you’re most comfortable in, as not all cases are the same. However, most therapists or rehabilitation professionals will recommend still employing a sober escort to oversee your progress.

Apart from relapse prevention programs to help you acclimate to your life post-rehab, having a companion to steer you on a clear path. It is especially crucial when issues beyond substance abuse may further aggravate your situation.

Keeping clean might be an endless struggle for recovering individuals. Therefore, they need reinforcement from sober escorts who can motivate them to push through their goal of lifelong abstinence and sobriety.

Escorts are even more beneficial in instances where you might encounter difficulty in maneuvering social situations. While other people might be fine when at home, they might have some uncertainties when traveling outside, be it for post-treatment therapies or during social events. Having a companion with them by their side can also help them adjust should they be present in a trigger-inducing event.
