Although we live in an age of standardization and mass production, there are areas where science and medicine (and even the Federal government agree) that a cookie-cutter approach will not work.

According to NIDA, "...matching treatment settings, interventions, and services to each individual's particular problems and needs is critical to his or her ultimate success in returning to productive functioning in the family, workplace, and society."

We knew that. Probably, you knew it, too. So why does everyone go to the same treatment centers and get the same treatment and expect the same results, when every case truly is unique?

A Sober Companion from Sober Champion will focus the client's attention on exactly what is meant by the NIDA's broad description of "productive functioning" in the family, workplace and society.

  • What is your role in the family - what do you want it to be?
  • What is your vision of your work, versus the reality today?
  • Is your perception of yourself in your community accurate?

The notion of leaving home for treatment can be the best initial course in treating your substance abuse problem. Without intensive aftercare, most patients are looking at several major relapses and an additional trip to rehab. Relapse rates for those returning from 30 or 60 days in treatment are notoriously high: well over 90%. Less than 30 consecutive days of residential treatment feature a recidivism rate of 97% -- and here's the kicker: whether you find yourself sweating on a charity cot at the Salvation Army or dropping $65.000 for 28 days in Malibu, the failure rate doesn't change.

But this failure rate is not attributable to the treatment facilities themselves; they do what they do incredibly well. Truly, it is the client's responsibility to continue treatment at home, where all the triggers and all the responsbilities lie.

We believe detox and residential rehab are only the first two phases in successful treatment of addiction and alcoholism. The third, equally crucial phase is bringing treatment home, getting a firm foundation where you live, and moving on from there.

Post-residential treatment at home is the most effective method any recovering person can use to finally put to use all the tools they accumulated in rehab.

At Sober Champion, we have aligned our methodology and treatment philosophies with those of the National Institute on Drug Abuse. We craft an at-home treatment program based on your needs, your values, and the specifics of your case.
