Miami • Palm Beach • Ft Lauderdale • Hialeah • Orlando • Jacksonville • Tampa • St. Petersburg • Point St. Lucie • Clearwater
The State of Florida is, without question, a hotbed of activity and options when it come to the world of private recovery services. Beyond residential & outpatient treatment, sober living and other brick & mortar services, it also offers a multitude of one-to-one services such as sober coaching and life coaching companies. For those of you unfamiliar with such services, they essentially entail a highly customized approach and level of care based on the specific needs of the client. For instance, while one individual may need constant monitoring & guidance during their early recovery process, another may require more life skills help with regard to such things as, career guidance, life management skills, overcoming common hurdles and so on.
One important thing to keep in mind is that in the world of sober and life coaching services there is currently no federal a state mandated training guidelines within the State of Florida. In all likelihood this will soon change but the point in stating this is that it’s extra important to conduct your due diligence when seeking the right provider for yours or your loved one’s clinical needs. For this reason it is extra important to seek out reviews, testimonials, information and potential complaints on coaching companies. Often times it may be the case that an individual will obtain a year or two of sobriety under their belts and deem themselves as qualified to be a life coach or recovery coach, and while they may have the experience and know-how with respect to themselves, do they truly have the clarity, experience, objectivity and depth in playing such a role in another person’s life?
There is often a grey area or overlapping of services within this arena of private recovery services. It is common to see a young adult, for instance, who is new in their recovery process from drug addiction while also inexperienced with things like job searching, career planning, daily structure and so. A scenario like this would merit a sober-recovery coach who also has expertise in general life coaching elements as well. There are endless scenarios with multitudes of variables we could highlight in this regard. Below are just a few questions to consider asking prior to deciding on who to work with:
- Is it a local organization or are they outside the State of Florida, and do they offer services over the phone, via video chat, in person, etc.?
- What are their credentials, licensing, affiliations, etc.?
- Before you tell them about your specific situation, first ask who are their target clients? What type of individual to they most specialize in working with?
- For those of you specifically seeking a sober/recovery coach, be sure to ask if the person you’d be working with is also in recovery and from what
- What sets them apart from other coaching services?
- What is their pricing structure?

OVERALL EXPERIENCE (1-5): 5
I was tentative about working with a coach and was immensely surprised at the benefit. I am gaining clarity about my thought process, and am given the encouragement, support and accountability as I take risks in my recovery. I feel comfortable to share about my addiction honestly without judgment and have gained insight into how my co-occurring sex and love addiction has been the precursor to numerous relapses. I finally feel like there is hope
