Relaxing at an Onsen Ryokan

Sober Companion


As your Sober Companion, I bridge the gap between your discharge from treatment and living a new life of recovery on your own.  After treatment, re-entering the real world can be filled with all sorts of unknowns.  You are no longer in a confined or controlled environment, and that nagging voice inside the head of an addict can be hard to ignore.  As a trained professional with a unique skill set, I am available 24/7 to help in the early stages of recovery and during life events that can trigger a relapse.  I will:

  • Prepare your living space to create a positive environment for sustained sobriety.

  • Supervise your daily life activities, where you go, and social encounters.

  • Live with you for a brief period, go to events, or on vacation to keep you away from triggering people/circumstances.

  • Support you during new sober interactions with family.

  • Develop daily practices that will help prevent relapse: assistance with organizing your day; help to establish structure and schedule for necessary daily activities; encourage fitness and wellness routines, maintaining a proper diet, and taking medications in a timely manner; and encourage regular effective sleep habits.


Wedding Table at Night

Sober Escort


As your Sober Escort I can accompany you to a Wedding, Office Christmas Party, Film Premier, Album Release Party, Concert, Corporate Function, or any event where Alcohol and Drugs are a clear and present danger. I can be perceived as your personal assistant, trainer, life coach, or intern to the public, friends, and colleagues.

  • Responsibly transport you to all destinations in a timely manner (with a valid U.S. Driver's License and U.S. Passport).

  • Greet you upon discharge at the treatment facility and drive you home, so there are no detours to usual hotspots where you previously indulged.

  • Transport you from home to your place of business and/or to run errands. 

  • Transport you to previously scheduled commitments (e.g. rehabilitation aftercare, outpatient services, psychiatrist/therapist appointments, doctor's appointments).

  • Upon request, accompany you to meetings (AA/NA, Faith-based, criminal justice settings, etc.) in order to create a less intimidating environment and reduce anxiety which will help enhance your recovery experience.
