What a Sober Companion Does
In addition to escorting a person to and from treatment, sober companions provide services tailored to meet an individual’s needs, in the home or while traveling. Here are a few of the services a sober companion might provide:
Locate and attend local 12 step (or other recovery program) meetings
Help clear the home of stashes of drugs/alcohol
Set up a family meeting to reintroduce the family post-discharge
Aid in the resumption of work/career
Support the client in the uneasy first few weeks home
Assist with finding local service providers for continuing care
Have you had an intervention and don’t know how to get your loved one to treatment? Rock to Recovery Companions provides transport services to help your loved one get to treatment safely. Medical support can also be provided as needed.
At other times, an individual may need to transition between treatment centers, to a different level of care. Rock to Recovery Companions can provide a qualified escort between care providers. The transition between structured environments can be traumatic for someone early in recovery; we can help make the transition as safe and seamless as possible.
The transition home from rehab or sober living can be daunting. Returning home can seem like returning to an utterly new environment, when looked at through the eyes of those early in recovery. A Rock to Recovery Companion can provide support for your loved one to implement the treatment center’s aftercare plan. We start by escorting your loved one home and can stay as long as is necessary to help them get acclimated to their new life in recovery. These services generally last from 2-4 weeks at a minimum, up to several months. Transition services are provided in 12 hours shifts for clients who demonstrate a high-degree of stability or on a live-in basis for those who need intensive support, particularly in the evening.
Intensive time with family or colleagues, especially away from the structure of home life, can create the grounds for relapse. Rock to Recovery Companions regularly accompany individuals on vacation or to events to help those in recovery make solid choices to maintain their recovery while showing up in positive and meaningful ways for those around them.
Given our relationship with entertainers, Rock to Recovery Companions has a wealth of experience working with musicians, actors, and other artists who are unable to come off the road to attend to their health concerns. Instead of going to or after rehab, Rock to Recovery Companions will travel with individuals who are on tour/location, to help create a sober support system around them, take advantage of local resources, and encourage a healthy lifestyle in what can sometimes be challenging situations. We often work with production companies, tour managers, record labels, and interested others to provide the services needed to talent.
All Rock to Recovery Companion services are fully customizable, allowing us to find the right companion and services to meet your particular circumstances and needs.
