A Short History of Sober Services
“Of course we can do that”
Sober Services began formally operating in December 2008 after I was introduced to an active sober companion professional working within the alcohol and drug treatment industry in Miami, Florida, and other parts of the USA.
By this point I had been working within residential rehabilitation centres for over 8 years and had the experiences of establishing one Centre in 2004 and founding another in 2006. The thrill of watching people recover and the knowledge that I played a part in the process was enough to persuade me that by offering Sober Services within the United Kingdom and the European Union (I speak French) I would be able to offer something fairly unique and original to those seeking a certain level of attention whilst beginning their journey towards recovery. But it was whilst being asked to assist with a film and their leading lady that Sober Services began to actually take shape. It was at this point that I began to use the term “of course we can do that”.
These days, Sober Services have grown significantly operating all over the world and are happy to offer anything from light support right the way through to very intensive accompaniment 24 / 7, and pretty much everything in-between. Basically, we’ve probably been asked it before, and our attitude is always “of course we can do that”.
All of our Sober Interventionists, Sober Transporters and Sober Companions / Sober Bodyguards are people who have made a choice to dedicate their lives to the well being of other alcoholics and addicts seeking recovery. They have all successfully beaten their own addictions and are fully aware of how to deal with addicts and alcoholics in early recovery. They have been chosen based upon their responsible temperament, positive personalities, knowledge of successful recovery, and their ability to adapt to the client’s environment. They have all been CRB checked and will have passed our stringent process’s of suitability. This means they are completely trustworthy, kind and able to be firm when required.
Yes, of course we can do that!
Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.
Your actions become your habits. Your habits become your values. Your values become your destiny.
