What is a sober coach or a recovery coach?
A sober coach or recovery coach is someone who helps people with an addiction, to help them recover and lead a sober lifestyle.
They will do things like help you create a plan for your sobriety, set goals to work towards, and talk through challenging situations so you can figure out how to deal with them in a healthy way. They also provide support to individuals in various stages of recovery and can help people to develop skills that will help them stay sober once they are out of treatment.
Our recovery coaches work with individuals on the phone, through the Confidant Health app.
What is the difference between a recovery coach and a therapist?
A lot of people find it a little confusing to know what the difference is between a recovery coach and a therapist.
A therapist is a mental health professional who is there to help you with your mental health needs. They have specialized training in therapy and can be very helpful if you are going through any kind of mental health crisis or simply want someone to talk to about your life.
On the other hand, recovery coaches don't have the same level of specialization as therapists but often specialize in addiction recovery, which makes them perfect for those who are dealing with substance use.
How can your recovery coaches help people seeking treatment?
Our recovery coaches offer judgment-free support to help people rebuild their lives. This can involve anything from serving as a resource broker to helping clients navigate different health and social services, supporting skill-building, and more. They are well-versed in different modalities of achieving sobriety and can ensure clients are connected to a community of support for whichever approach meets their needs. They also have lived experience with substance use and can support clients in overcoming cravings and urges and moving through the stages of change.
How much do your recovery coaching services cost?
Confidant Health believes that recovery coaches should not be seen as a luxury but rather as an essential tool in recovery. A 30-minute session with our recovery coach costs around $25 while an hour-long session costs around $45.
