Would I Benefit from a Recovery Coach?
While the terms “recovery coach” and “sober companion” are often used interchangeably, they are actually different services. Neither a sober companion nor a recovery coach is a therapist. They do not advise on mental health issues or create a treatment plan for psychological concerns. Rather, they are mentors who have had success in lifestyle change and can help an individual address obstacles to making life changes. For mental health issues, the support of a therapist is advised.
