How do you find the best training to become a sober companion?

How do you find the best training to become a sober companion?

sober companion

You need to be certified, insured, and bonded. A sober companion and safe transport person should have lived experience, at least 3 to 5 years sobriety, and 36 hours of classroom education plus mentorship from a Master Coach. The Addictions Academy can help you achieve that, and get clients.

As a Certified Sober Companion, your main focus is to stay with a client for a period of time. This could include living with them in their home, traveling with them on business, and traveling with them on their vacations. The main duties of a sober companion include teaching the client how to have a productive and sober lifestyle or a semi-sober lifestyle. There’s specific training that will teach you how to work with a client and get the best results. The Certified Sober Companion and Safe Transport class at The Addictions Academy is very in-depth and covers everything you need to know about how to properly work with a client legally, ethically, and safely. We cover how much to charge, what legal things you need such as insurance and bonding. We even cover in class how to handle yourself in difficult situations.

In our sober companion and safe transport class, we also cover how to market to specific clients, how to close a deal, and how to overdeliver. The misnomer is that everyone in recovery can be a sober companion. Well, while most people in the 12 step program can assist with other 12 step clients and 12 step calls, that does not mean they make a good safe support safe transport, or sober companion. You need to be trained, educated, certified, insured, and bonded. In today’s world, you need to protect yourself and clients will ask you for your credentials and for a copy of your insurance and bonding paperwork.

Do you want to set yourself apart from the rest of the other sober companions? Yes, you do! You want to offer a higher quality service. When you pair our sober companion and safe transport certification with the ability to provide our supplement line at ProRecoveryRx.com to help the client heal from the damage of drugs and alcohol he will set yourself apart as a higher caliber sober companion. In addition to the class, we also offer two different ways to consume information from the class. You can watch the video self-study, or hop into an online, interactive virtual classroom. Both of these come with FREE 30 day listing at our recovery coach locator. Access to a job board, two different Facebook networking groups that are the largest online, are included. Our signature inclusion into your training is the 10 weeks of Coach and Sober Companion Mentorship from a seasoned master coach and sober companion.

We also have a marketing class available that will teach you how to market to your clients, what materials you need to do that, how to network, and more. In terms of value for price, we have the highest value in the addictions industry space.

In the United States alone there is no governing body, federal or state for intervention training or professional recovery coaching certification. Dr. Cali and several colleagues have been pushing for years to get some standardization of training that is governmentally required. At this time there, is no governmental body that requires a credential for intervention or professional recovery coach training. While the Pennsylvania Certification Board may offer a credential in Intervention, they are a private nonprofit with no state or federal affiliation. They are nothing more than a group to join. Our NCIP, Nationally Certified Intervention Professional accreditation, actually came out a year prior to them releasing the CIP and we have been offering the NCIP since then. We have trained over 15,000 interventionalists, professional, and addictions counselor’s to date. We pride ourselves on the ethics and work environment we create for our students and our staff.

WHY CHOOSE THE ADDICTIONS ACADEMY?
We specialize in Virtual Learning and have since 2012. You can learn in your PJ’s online either in a virtual classroom (see and hear us) that is super fun and interactive, or you can learn by video series at your leisure, still in your PJ’s.

The virtual classroom certifications and training are on the calendar of courses and run 10-3 East Coast Time. We take breaks for snacks and lunch (just like real, live classroom education) and we have fun in these classes. The goal is to educate you and deliver the material in a manner that you will enjoy it and remember it.

In the video self-study series, you can watch when ever you have time, in between work, home, at night or 2 am when you can’t sleep, and are tired of binge watching Netflix. All exams are included in there and you even get your certificate or certification (depending on your class choice) at the end.

Prefer live classes? We throwback to 1985 and offer live classes in NYC, Miami, and LA. Please check the calendar for times and locations. You can still come in your PJ’s if you want to!  ;)
