What is a Sober Companion?

Sober Companions are sober individuals who act as a companion for people in the early stages of recovery. Sober Companions help their clients avoid triggers and risky situations during their daily errands, social events or travel.

Sober Companions help their clients go about their business safely, providing daily structure and routine, as well as helping them connect with resources, attend 12-step & other peer support meetings, and build their sober social network.

Sober Companions aren’t babysitters

Suntra Sober Companions aren’t babysitters. Sober Companions help newly sober people navigate challenging situations safely, but they don’t physically prevent clients from relapse.

If a risky or triggering situation presents itself, a Sober Companion will encourage the client to do the right thing, and make sure they have the resources they need to make the right call.

We help our clients develop better coping mechanisms

Sober Companions are meant to be a buffer against the stressors of the world. Sober Companions can also act as a moral compass for clients who don’t always make great choices in their day-to-day lives.

The goal of Sober Companionship is to help our clients develop better coping mechanisms in stressful situations. Companions encourage healthy behaviors such as calling a sponsor, going to an AA meeting, or avoiding the triggers and temptations of their old life.

Support and friendship when you need it the most

For people who are new to recovery, everyday life can be overwhelming. From learning how to cope with triggers to cutting off toxic relationships, early recovery is full of obstacles. Sober companions are not only familiar with the recovery process, but they also understand the unique challenges of living a newly sober life.

For people who are struggling with addiction, a Sober Companion can be an invaluable life-saving asset. Companionship offers newly sober clients a support system when they need it most.

Motivation and guidance on the road to recovery

Sober companions are there to offer clients 1-on-1 guidance, encouragement and motivation along the road to recovery. Sober Companionship services may also include:

  • Safe travel to daily appointments, meetings, errands, and court dates

  • Help identifying and avoiding triggers, risky situations, and toxic people

  • Wellness checks, drug screenings and bed checks

  • Sober living situation checks

  • Help building a recovery network in local 12-step meetings and support groups

  • Accountability before, during and after outings, sporting events, concerts, and live entertainment
