No matter how committed your loved one is to getting and staying sober, they are going to face an uphill battle in their first year of recovery. There is an almost constant “voice of addiction” chattering away in their head, and it is a battle for those new to recovery to turn down the volume on the voice they are hearing in their head.
At Clear Path Interventions, we offer sober companionship services to assist our clients during the recovery process. Our sober companions help serve as support systems, mentors, and advocates to motivate and encourage our clients. This role is an essential part of the post-treatment plan.
Our companions work to identify the early challenges of sobriety, triggers, barriers, and other blockages to create teachable moments to guide our clients on their path to recovery in the real world.
We use a very personalized and compassionate approach for all of the recovery process.
What is a Sober Companion?
A sober companion is an individual who works with our clients and their families to assist in creating a daily living plan in the real world for continued sobriety and lasting recovery. A sober companion works personally with each client to establish a healthy routine and develop a strong foundation for sobriety. Sober companions encourage and motivate clients along their journey.
Sober companions help in a number of tangible ways:
- Preparing your home for living sober
- Encouraging regular sleep, exercise & other wellness activities
- Planning a healthy diet
- Assisting with transport to meetings & appointments
- Fostering participation in recovery community activities
- Building a daily schedule with daily practices
- Developing a network of positive, sober-supportive people

How Does a Sober Companion Fit Into My Loved One’s Life?
We understand every client will have a different recovery journey. Sober companions are intended to assist as day-to-day companions and to be present so loneliness can be avoided, which can be particularly troubling in early recovery. This helps those in recovery to rebuild social skills and confidence that may have been lost during active addiction.
