Taking a Personalized Approach

Do You Want To Make Changes?

You’ve been drinking or consuming drugs to excess, and it’s showing. Your life is beginning to fray at the edges. You recognize that you’re in or on the verge of a downward spiral.

Perhaps things are not so bad, but they could get worse – and you want to avoid that. You want to change your current situation. 

But you’re overwhelmed. It feels like it’s too much to do on your own.

Let’s do this together.

With the guidance of an experienced, well-trained, certified and credentialed Recovery Coach (Sober Coach), and a clear plan in place, you can absolutely change your situation.

Our diverse team of Recovery Coaches have personal and professional experience in all facets of a Recovery Oriented System of Care, which makes us a well-rounded asset to those we work with. And if drugs or alcohol are not playing a large part in your current situation, the mental health experts on our team can still help you through whatever you’re dealing with.

What is Recovery Coaching?

Recovery Coaching is a collaborative, strengths-based approach to changing your relationship to alcohol or drugs, getting healthy, and living a better life. 

Changing your relationship to alcohol or drugs is no small feat, and every person comes to recovery with a different idea of what they want to achieve.

When you hire us as your Recovery Coach professional, we work together to identify and design a personalized change-plan with your goals, your schedule, and a better life in mind.

You are the expert on your dream of a better future for yourself. Your Sober Coach is the expert on setting you up to live your dreams beyond recovery.

If you’re saying yes to alcohol or drugs, what are you saying no to?
