SOBER COMPANION FAQ

How do you vet your Personal Recovery Assistants?

Most sober companions are recommended to us by other recovery service professionals. After an extensive interview process, background checks, review of certifications and references, we move to the onboarding phase.

What's the difference between a sober companion and an AA sponsor?

Sober companions, or Personal Recovery Assistants, are professionals, trained and certified to provide recovery and life skills services. AA sponsors are volunteers, who utilize their own life stories for guidance.

Is there a minimum time I can hire a sober companion for?

The timeline is custom and is based on the needs of the individual. Typically 4 hours is the minimum hour requirement.

Is it possible to meet with a Personal Recovery Assistant prior to requesting services?

Absolutely! We can facilitate a meeting between you and your team, which would include your identified sober companion. Meetings can be in person or virtual.

Where does a Personal Recovery Assistant fit into my care?

Our personal recovery assistants are intended to serve as day-to-day companions and coaches. We utilize sober companions in the following areas: 

  • Safe Passage (Adolescant and Adult) – on the way to or from treatment and during a time needed to leave treatment such as funerals, weddings, or court appointments.
  • Sober Monitoring – Sober companions are often utilized in this service to provide extra face to face guidance and support.
  • Interventions – Personal Recovery Assistants often accompany the individual safely to the door of treatment following an intervention.
  • Case Management – Case managers often utilize sober companions, and sober coaches to assist in implementing a case management plan.

Will my confidentiality be protected?

Your confidentiality is very important to us here at Hired Power. We frequently work with high profile clients that require high levels of confidentiality and worry about press coverage. To help accommodate we offer discreet services with multiple layers of identity protection for all of our clients.

What kind of backgrounds do your sober companions have?

Our Personal Recovery Assistants come from all walks of life — CEOs, drug and alcohol councelors, nurses, therapists, mental health counselors and more. We make sure we have recovery coaches of ages, education, background, cultures, and accross the gender spectrum.

Can I request a specifc sober companion for myself or my loved one?

You can share your preferences as well as the specific education or training you or your loved one may need your personal recovery assistant (PRA) to have. If you have utilized a PRA in the past, you could request to paired with that professional again. We often schedule a face to face or virtual meeting to assure an appropriate comfort level and introduction to new PRAs.

How much does a sober companion cost?

Cost varies based on many factors including duration, additional treatments, location, acuity, etc. These fees include the guidance and support of a full team of professionals.

Are sober companion services covered by insurance?

No, insurance does not cover Personal Recovery Assistant services. However, don’t let it stop you from getting help. From attending designated meetings, returning to work or school, and establishing a healthy daily routine, our Personal Recovery Assistants are there to help. At Hired Power, our PRAs guide, support, and mentor clients, assisting them as they apply the information frst learned in treatment into their new lifestyles.

Is a sober companion right for me?

Everyone seeking help for substance abuse, mental health conditions, or gaining independent life skills would benefit from the guidance and mentorship of a sober companion. PRA services are essential for those clients seeking continuing support in an independent living setting. Ideal clients include those who have a history of relapse, are seeking a way to break the cycle, returning into a demanding job, chaotic family life, or have extenuating circumstances that require professional coordination.
