What is a sober Companion?
A sober companion is an individual in long term recovery from drugs and alcohol that helps another individual stay sober for a period of time. They can remain with the individual for 24 hours to 1 year and assist with events, work meetings, parties, shopping, exercise and cooking. They are usually in recovery but should be certified, insured and bonded.
How much does a Sober Companion make?
If you work for a company like Hired Power, they pay $300 a day and charge around $1200 to the client. Other companies like The Addictions Coach and Sober Escorts pay $600 or more per day and if you work for yourself you can charge up to $2500 per day.
How do I become a sober companion?
There is no state or federal requirement yet, but The Addictions Academy is the first to offer a certification course with exams and credentials to assist you in offering solid reputable services to your clients.
What is a Sober Escort?
A sober escort is someone who transports an individual in early recovery from drugs and alcohol. They can drive them to 12 step meetings, to the grocery store, to events and to and from addiction treatment services.
