Sober Life Coaching
Sobriety doesn’t end with rehab. For a person to stay sober, they are signing up for a life of challenges and heavy goals ahead of them. Often when individuals exit therapy or treatment they are left on their own and left to overcome the challenge of sobriety single-handedly. A sober coach can eliminate the need to go at sobriety alone by providing a recovering addict with the steps needed in order to remain sober for the rest of their lives. Throughout each step, a sober coach will help an individual overcome those challenges and even get back on track with their lives for a full, healthy recovery.
Why Life Coaching?
When a person gets sober, they are receiving a new chance and a new life. Things will seem newer and life will almost feel as though it just began. Right after getting sober a person has a lot of decisions about what to do with their new life. Though this is exciting, it is also chaotic and can cause anxiety, which may lead to substance abuse yet again. Without the right support pillars in place, a person can fall quickly back into substance abuse. Therefore, having someone who can assist them and even structure their day-to-day lives is important for recovery.
Building up Life Skills
The biggest job for a sobriety coach is helping a person pick up new life skills that they never knew they had. By helping an individual revisit themselves and strengthen themselves from within, they are less likely to return to substance abuse in the future. In fact, most individuals will come out of sobriety coaching feeling empowered, have a higher self-esteem and even motivation to go out and do something with their new life.
Multiple Stage Coaching
Sobriety coaching does not just happen immediately the following rehabilitation. Instead, it follows a person throughout the different stages of sobriety to help the individual stay sober. These stages can include:
- Getting a job
- Attending meetings
- Leaving residential treatment care facilities
- Moving into a new home
- Recovering from relapse
How Often Should a Person Receive Sobriety Coaching?
Initially, experts recommend seeing a sobriety coach at least three times per week for at least one hour per session. This will allow the individual and the coach to get to know one another and establish a solid ground for goals, weaknesses and sobriety risks. As time goes on a coach will dictate how often a person needs to be seen and coaches are always available for emergency service if need be.
A life sobriety coach can help you on your road to sobriety. Most coaches have faced the challenges of sobriety themselves which makes them the perfect companion for overcoming the hurdles associated with sobriety. By having the support of the right individual, your future of sobriety will be long and rewarding.
