|THERE'S BOOZE DOWN MANY AISLES...
Where do you buy your booze?
An alcoholic might stay in a residential treatment facility for an extended period of time. He or she can learn all about the disease model and the various approaches to and modalities of alcoholism treatment. But what happens when that person walks into a market, grocery shopping for the first time? What products are most strongly marketed and sold in every grocery store in this country? Beer, wine, and whiskey look so good, so inviting, so harmless while resting on those grocery store shelves.
Now what's this alcoholic supposed to do? Fresh out of treatment, with all the best intentions, more alcoholics begin a relapse in grocery store aisles than anywhere else.
Sober Coaching & Sober Companionship are relatively new pieces of the overall treatment puzzle. The Sober Coach augments and strengthens the foundation built by static treatment models such as inpatient or outpatient rehab & more traditional therapeutic approaches.
One thing your Sober Companion knows is this: many alcoholics have spent years going to the same grocery stores. They knows every aisle. They know the clerks & they know the alcoholic. Whatever else they might have purchased in that store, they always purchased alcohol.
Sober Coaches and Sober Companions have been through this dilemma. In years past, each of us has begun a relapse in the grocery store, a 7-11, or a bodega.
Our job is to help you identify these danger points and put a new experience in place of the old experience. Whether it's in the workplace, on the set, in a grocery store, doctor's or dentist's office, a Sober Companion from Sober Champion has the experience, the willingness, and the desire to be of service.
We help you stay away from drinking and drugs. Period.
To help you get the experience of doing EVERYTHING you need to do without getting loaded, our staff will accompany you ANYWHERE - including the grocery store.
A Sober Coach helps you re-envision and re-pattern the way you perform what seems like normal, harmless behavior. We know the danger points, and we will be by your side to help identify and contend with each one.
