We’ve all heard about the concept of a “guardian angel” but how about when a high-functioning individual or family realizes they may need a sober companion concierge because they can no longer do it on their own? It’s not officially dubbed “guardian angel.” Wouldn’t that be awesome though? A monogrammed angel costume plus a halo? No need to worry; your sober companion is not going to appear looking like a superhero! Having a coach for any endeavor—whether it’s a professional athlete or a CEO—is a proven successful mentor model. Sometimes a human being just needs another qualified human being for support, and no your co-dependent better half or family member is not a healthy choice. This rings resoundingly true in the world of addiction and wellness. It’s harrowing those first few hours, days, weeks and months. And that’s where the “guardian angel” concept in the form of a clinical or experiential sober companion concierge choice can come into play.
Many times as effective as luxury residential rehab, the right credentialed sober companion(s) concierge on-site is considered a high form of care. Families do the best they can but when a credentialed specialist is right there by your side it can make all the difference in this world. Haven’t you ever thought, “If I could just work with a clinical doctor, or other treatment professional all day for as long as it takes I can see myself getting well!” or are the tattered wings of self-sufficiency “I can handle everything myself just fine, thank you very much!” still barely fluttering?
According to the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD), nearly 19 million citizens are dependent on alcohol and/or drugs—and nearly 50% of people dealing with addiction suffer a lapse after receiving treatment, which is mainly faulted to a lack of support and guidance available to them after the conclusion of their treatment course. People who relapse are in greater danger of relapsing again compared to someone who has never relapsed before.
Reasons Pro Athletes Choose Coaches
Pro athletes choose the right coach to train and perform at their peak. Why is a sober companion concierge a potential game changer, and perhaps a better option than 28 days of inpatient treatment? Many treatment centers follow the Minnesota Model; oftentimes when a corporation has an employee who’s battling addiction, the corporation would demand the employee check into 28-day treatment, with the belief that pow, 28 days later that employee will be magically healed, and ready to generate more revenue for the corporation. The reason it so often fails is it deposits employees back in their previous lives and thus isn’t designed for them to live their healthiest lives. It has the potential to begin a repetitive cycle of flying in and out of treatment centers.
A person-centric model, or sober companion concierge, was developed out of a US Medical Boards Model. Over-burdened stressed-out doctors were ready to lose their licenses due to addiction. The US Medical Boards forced them into a person-centric on-site sober companion concierge(s) model with professionals who are seasoned, well-qualified and chock full of credentials and specialties to match each doctor’s unique needs.
Entities such as aSoberCompanion.com follow this model and can assist with alcoholism, prescription drug addiction, pain management, dual diagnosis or many other challenges that arise in the face of changing one’s life. aSoberCompanion.com (which is a higher level of care sober companion concierge that branched out of private luxury treatment, The Scott ©) provides highly qualified specialists for individuals, families and couples. It is a specialist (or small team of specialists) who can change the way one deals with addiction and emotions, properly diagnose and help teach new behaviors in real life. So while they can technically be hired help to make addiction madness and more disappear, they are far more than the average alcoholic babysitter and bring decades of intensive clinical or treatment experience to a person’s life. They’re the expert on hand right by your side. A sober companion coach is a game changer.
Family Office Families & Couples & Sober Companions
What are some occasions that might call for a “a guardian angel”—or a medical or clinical sober companion concierge—over another recovery resource? How about when a treatment center forces an ultra-high-net-worth chronic alcoholic adult male detoxing in his first week to attend yoga classes? Someone like this is in no condition to get into downward dog, let alone fear his wife will find out about these young Lululemon pants-wearing yogis. What’s next on the treatment center agenda? Piano class and another 12-step meeting?
What is the reason insurance companies do not pay for higher credentialed experts on their staff? Too expensive. What about paying for anyone to have aftercare? Not in the insurance package. This requires some guardian angel work, or a highly-credentialed sober companion concierge, if you will—they are ready to fly in for a paradigm shift! As more and more people are discovering, one size definitely does not fit all when it comes to wellness or yoga pants.
aSoberCompanion.com is a welcome relief for the family office and family demographic. Take, for example, a family insisting on having treatment professionals on-site during a festive holiday season to keep the peace. After failed attempts with several treatment centers and years of disjointed therapy sessions, a client may still be unable to get well, and it can become very clear the whole family desperately needs help. When the right treatment team is brought to the home to stabilize dysfunction, it makes for a happy, functional holiday season with true peace on earth.
Moreover, a chosen few sober concierge companions specialize in couples that are on-the-rocks. Honestly, addiction or not, what relationship doesn’t need coaching? The reality is, divorce can cost more than treatment so when someone realizes his or her future or current spouse obviously has trouble handling their booze, painkillers or whatever else is in the mix, employing a sober companion concierge might be the ideal gift or anniversary present that will benefit both parties.
Then there is the unbearable experience of grief or PTSD when one has to deal with the abandonment, betrayal or death of a loved one. Many turn to alcohol, prescriptions drugs and/or hard drugs because the pain is just too insane. Rather than coping with a lethal mix of cocktails, one has the option to order a clinical sober companion(s) team (yes, make that a double please), for safe passage to the sane side.
Do You Require a Divine Intervention or a Scientific Cause and Effect?
Sober coach, sober companion or guardian angel; whatever you want to call it, a highly credentialed sober companion concierge may be exactly what someone needs. As millions before you (all through millennia) have proven: Ending addiction alone is next to impossible; why not make it a neat divine intervention? Or a shake and stir scientific cause and effect? Yes, we know the drink or pipe is still in hand, and if you have read up to this point, you just may be ready, so bottoms up, buttercup!
