Nationally Certified Sober Companion and Safe Transport (Sober Escort)
Sober Companions and safe transport (sober escort from treatment and to and from appointments) have been around for a very long time. Up until now, there has been no real certification or training process for the people that provide these services and it was merely based on the honor system of years in recovery off of a 12 step model of peer support.
In recent years, we have seen a current rise in non 12 step treatment and that calls for more diversity in services that the addiction industry can provide for clients. In addition, a higher caliber of clientele requires a higher caliber of training. Most sober companions make between 1200 to 2500 per day (24-hour span) for services. Clients that will pay this rate expect high-quality education and training and value for services not just being drug to meetings and running life errands.
With training as a sober coach or safe transport, you are able to take your ‘street knowledge’ and personal experience in the addiction recovery world and add some solid training behind your name to give you even more credibility in the addiction industry. In addition to gaining a wealth of new knowledge and understanding in the addiction process, you will also learn the ethical and legal side of companionship and transports. If you are toting clients around in your personal vehicle you need this class.
