A recovery mentor/sober coach is not a therapist or a doctor. They are not a sponsor. They are a professional who will work with you to organize and prioritize the things you need to change.

A recovery mentor will call you on your crap. You call the shots, but if you get out of your lane, no goodness will come of it.

You have to set goals and reachable goals so you can monitor your progress in recovery. You will need to call upon new coping skills to make good decisions and prevent backsliding into dangerous and stupid situations.

A recovery mentor will encourage you to step outside your comfort zone, and be there for you when things get uncomfortable and you need support or a push in the right direction.

You are in charge of your recovery. You have to practice new behaviors in order to make lasting change. You are ultimately responsible for your success or failure.

Build a solid foundation for your recovery to increase your odds of staying clean and sober.

You cannot do this alone. Without doing the work in recovery, you will always be miserable, or dead. The choice is yours.

  • Work with you to explore your substance use and the effects it has on your life. What makes you want to use?
  • Help you recognize patterns of behavior that can harm your recovery. Slipping back into old habits is easy, making good choices is hard.
  • Develop a relationship with your support group within family, friends, significant others and community. Find the right support for your situation.
  • Help you prioritize tasks and set reachable goals. Clean up the wreckage you have caused.
  • Help you develop a schedule and routine that emphasizes recovery. No more all-nighters, no more sleeping until noon.
  • Help you work through thoughts, feelings and emotions that are keeping you stuck. What they are and how they hijack you.
  • Help you develop a relapse prevention plan. Relapse is a process that starts weeks or days before you pick up and use. Stop that pattern.
  • Help you be accountable for your actions. Take responsibility for yourself. No-one else is to blame for the crappy things you do or say.

Your substance abuse did not happen overnight and nor does recovery. To make any lasting changes you have to practice new coping skills and behaviors over, and over, and over again. 

Entering treatment, getting through detox, and then facing uncertainty and fear as you navigate life without substances will not be successful without support.

As recovery mentor will help you navigate early recovery. Together we will examine what you want your life to look like, what your current challenges are, how to set goals, and how to enact positive change that will last.

You will develop stress management and relapse prevention plans to help you get through the times where compulsions and urges threaten your recovery.

The benefit of professional mentoring in early recovery include; increased self-esteem and confidence, lower stress levels, better coping skills, more clean and sober time, better relationships with friends, family and loved ones, work or school goals in place, a strong support system, guideance with decision making, self-awareness pracitice, and more.

IT'S NOT WORTH IT. STOP SCREWING UP YOUR LIFE.

Recovery is a journey that begins when the drink, drug, behavior, or situation is stopped.

The longer you live in denial, don't give a crap, create chaos and drama, run amok, sever ties with anyone that cares, blow up relationships, go broke, become homeless, lose jobs, turn to prostitution, progress to harder and harder drugs, get 5150, have multiple hospitalizations, have your rights taken away..... the harder it is going to be to fix it or change it.
