Reviews and Information on California Sober Coaches and Life Coaches

The concept of sober coaching is thought to have been originated in the State of California.  We’ve heard stories on the news and in tabloids on how these types of addiction and alcoholism recovery professionals are nothing more than glorified babysitters, and while nothing could be further from the truth, the fact of the matter is that sober coaches and life coaches play many important roles in the early sobriety process of their client/s. 

Often called “Recovery Coaches,” these professionals are nearly always well intertwined within their own personal sobriety and typically have no less than 2 or 3 years sober.  A.T.R.I. recommends working only with sober coaching services in which the actual provider has no less than 5 years of personal sobriety.  The reason for this is due to the fact that the early recovery process requires guidance by professionals whom are able to employ strong insight, depth and objectivity, which is most commonly drawn from their own personal struggles and triumphs in the realm of recovery.

California’s primary hubs with regard to addiction & alcoholism treatment services consist of; Los Angeles, Malibu, Orange County, San Diego, Beverly Hills, Palm Springs, San Francisco Bay Area and several others.  Many sober coaches within these regions have strong ties with local drug rehabs, sober living homes and other professional resources.  This can be very beneficial in the case of a client needing a higher level of care or added clinical services such as therapy, medication management, etc.

California Sober Coaching ServicesWhile there is no state requirement mandating sober coaches to have standard licensing, many do in fact carry some level of formal training.  For this reason it is EXTREMELY important to ask many questions and perform due diligence with regard to searching for consumer reviews, testimonials and any possible complaints.  A word of caution, however; addicts and alcoholics tend to manipulate facts in cases where they maybe relapsed or experienced other like difficulties while working with a sober coach and thus, pointing the finger of blame in their direction.  Since California such an abundance of these types of services, you should have no problem locating one that meets yours or your loved one’s needs.  A few possible questions to ask prior to deciding would be:

  • Is the individual you’ll be working with in recovery themselves from some type of addiction or alcoholism?
  • How long have they been sober?
  • For how long have they been working as a sober-recovery or life coach?
  • Can they provide any referrals from previous clients?
  • What areas of service constitute their specialty?
  • What sets them apart from other comparable services?
  • Do they have any licenses, certifications, etc?

Steve always helps me see the answers to my problems that I already know, but am too afraid to bring out. He helps me try new action plans that I otherwise would not attempt, by helping me see things in a fresh light and getting me to come up with the plan for myself.
