A sober coach is a person who is hired to help ensure the success of a recovering alcoholic or addict. Sometimes the addict hires the coach herself. Often a parent or other loved one hires the coach. Most coaches are themselves in recovery from addiction, and they are familiar with 12-step groups and other support in their community. Services sober coaches may provide include face-to-face support, phone support, introductions to people in the community and transportation. A sober coach is different from an AA sponsor because it is a paid position.
“I have worked with Hired Power extensively in collaboration with Clearview Treatment Programs’ individualized outpatient program. I am always impressed with their effectiveness and professionalism.”
“Thanks again for being there for us and guiding us through some rough waters. Your kindness and genuine concern deeply touched my soul and we are all grateful our paths crossed when they did. You are a truly gifted professional, keep on doing what you do so well.”
“I just want to thank Hired Power for the PRA. He was a perfect match and I can’t say enough…. He was intensely committed. This is the first time I have been clean in over 30 years. Thank you again.”
“I don’t look at you (Hired Power) as hiring a service, I look at you as saving my life.” (referring to his ability to stay sober after returning home).
