How much does a nationally certified sober companion make?
There are multiple answers for this question so let’s take a moment and dig into all the financial possibilities once you become a nationally certified sober companion.
First of all, let’s take a moment and re-address what exactly a sober companion does and what is expected if you were to become a nationally certified sober companion. Sober companions go to the client, or the struggling addict, in an attempt to get them clean and sober and keep them clean and sober. A sober companion is required to go where ever the client goes on a daily basis all the while giving him tools and skills to battle the deadly cycle of addiction on a moment by moment basis. Having said that, we will speak on the pay scales of Dr. Cali Estes and The Addictions Academy and The Addictions Coach.
Dr. Estes’ sober companions average $125 an hour but the possibilities go way beyond this rate. I can tell you from experience, being the author of this blog and a certified sober companion of The Addictions Coach that I have made well above $125 an hour. I was sent, by Dr. Estes, on a seven-day cruise to accompany a client who was battling alcoholism and feared that being out on the open water at a party at this fear may be detrimental to his sobriety and made $10,000 for the seven days. That was very intensive, around the clock treatment and supervision and the pay reflected this.
I also was sent to Colorado by Dr. Estes to help a struggling alcoholic But I was only required to meet with him seven days a week but only three hours a day. The duration of this recovery based treatment was 60 days and I was also paid $13,000. So as you can see, it is very financially gratifying as well as emotionally gratifying to help those in need. Our success rate and sobriety rate is well over 85% and the numbers keep climbing!
