Sober On Demand®

Most substance use disorder treatment facilities fail because they are not customized to the client. In a 30 day residential stay you may receive 4 hours total of individual therapy and that is not enough to tackle your addiction root cause issues. Also, most traditional treatment centers are based on the Minnesota Model which is 12 step absence based ‘give your will up to God’ concept,  and they do not utilize the science we have today, like The Brain Health Recovery Method to help heal the neurotransmitters in your brain that have been damaged by drugs and alcohol.

Yes. Sober on Demand can bring our private medical detox unit and addiction professionals like recovery coaches, sobriety coaches, sober companions, and addiction counseling services right to your doorstep. We can also handle mental health issues like anxiety, depression ADD, and more. We offer a holistic approach with yoga, personal training services, and even The Recovery Brain Health Method to help heal your body inside and out, with a complete package of mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, and chemical healing.

Simply put, having an alternative to addiction treatment team come to you makes the difference. Recovering from drugs, alcohol or mental illness in your home surroundings is the easiest and most effective way to get your life back.  By allowing the Sober on Demand team to assist you in your real-world environment you will handle triggers and vices as they arise in real-time and learn real-life coping mechanisms, unlike the fantasy role play that you did in the inpatient drug and alcohol treatment setting.

Private Medical Detox

Yes. Private medical detox is available at home for drugs and alcohol, food addiction, and more. A medical team will join you at your home, hotel, or place of work to help you come off the drugs, alcohol, sugar, and other substances that are plaguing your system. Vitamins, supplements, and more are key after a medical detox to restore your body balance and neurotransmitter brain balance.

Cravings are desires for a specific thing, they are both chemical and emotional. This means if you are craving heroin, you are looking for a dopamine rush to the brain chemically or physically, but emotionally you may want to escape the situation you are in at the moment. It is important to deal with both emotional and physical cravings and also the neurotransmitter chemicals in the brain by using ProrecoveryRx.

Detox symptoms can vary depending on what drugs and alcohol have been introduced into your system. There are Acute and Post Acute withdrawal symptoms that you can experience, depending on which drugs and alcohol and how much you have consumed.  Acute withdrawal is intense, lasts 3-7 days, and can be life-threatening if not detoxed properly by the correct medical professionals. Post-acute withdrawal is after the acute symptoms have passed and more latent, longer-lasting but less intense symptoms are present.

It depends on your drug of choice. If you use opiates like heroin, oxycontin, and hydrocodone for example it depletes your dopamine in your brain and destroys your neurotransmitters. Drugs like cocaine, speed, and methamphetamine increase the production of dopamine and then deplete it as well. You must detox and then start to heal your brain from all the damage otherwise you will continue to use drugs and alcohol.

Sober Companions

While there is no state or federal guideline, you should have 5 years of sobriety, be bonded, and insured with experience. The Addictions Academy has offered the first national certification and credential as a certified sober companion.

A 12 step sponsor is a peer that offers free, peer-driven support. A sober companion is a trained, certified, insured, and bonded professional individual that will assist from a professional standpoint and offer guidance, life skills, trigger management and assist with other duties. Sponsors have no real formal training other than having experienced an addiction, whereas certified sober companions have the lived experience as well both also have formal and professional training.

A sober companion is with you in person in your space (home, office, hotel) and for a specific length of time, and can travel with you nationally and internationally. A therapist will meet you in their office for 1 hour at a time to discuss your issues or work by phone or the internet. Therapists are licensed and sober companions are nationally certified, insured, and bonded.

An individual that has 5 years of sobriety, is bonded, insured, and certified. They can live in your residence and accompany you to events, work, gym, grocery, meetings, outings, and more and help you stay sober as you re-enter your life and the workforce. They can also accompany you as a sober escort to an event like a wedding, business meeting, or short-term event where a high-risk situation like drugs, alcohol, or sex will be present. A sober companion will help you overcome triggers, install coping skills, assist with budget/finance, daily living duties, and even help with anxiety, depression, mental health issues, and eating disorders.

Most people that are just coming out of an inpatient facility can benefit from a sober companion service that lives with them in their home for a period of time, usually 3-6 months. You can also hire a sober companion to drive you or accompany you to a high-risk event like a wedding, concert, meeting, or work function. If you have drug or alcohol tendencies and want extra support or even suffer from anxiety, an eating disorder or you are struggling to reintegrate into life, you can benefit from a sober companion.

Recovery Coach

Yes. Recovery coaches meet the client where they are and help the client build the best life possible. If ‘doing life on life’s terms’; has you stressed out, recovery coaching and sober coaching is for you.

A sober coach is a person in long-term recovery that is certified, bonded, and insured and is able to help other people find that path to not using drugs and alcohol. Most sober coaches will work hourly, and some will provide live-in services.  Sober coaches use a strengths-based system of recovery rooted in creating an action plan and creating a fulfilling life.

A recovery coach is a person in long term recovery that is certified, bonded and insured and is able to help other people give up using drugs and alcohol. They utilize a powerful, proactive, and solution-based private guidance system that can enable the client to achieve a level of clarity and understanding that might otherwise NOT be attained through traditional addiction treatment or drug rehab style environments.

Sugar and Food Coach

Food addiction is emotional, mental, and chemical. You need to address all three components to successfully handle any addiction to food or any external substance. Sugar is the hardest to kick and you might want to take a supplement that will decrease cravings while you detox chemically and physically but you will still need food addiction coaching and nutritional therapy to keep the addiction under control.

Sugar and heroin have almost the same chemical makeup. When you stop eating sugar, your body will go into a detox. You will experience withdrawal symptoms similar to a drug detox and these include headaches, irritability, insomnia, foggy brain, nausea, restless legs, exhaustion, emotional crying, achy joints, and more. A sugar detox can be managed with some neurotransmitter supplements.

Nutritional therapy is creating real health through healthy food choices and lifestyle changes. Establishing an understanding of what nutrients are and what they provide for our body and utilizing Food as Medicine. Working together as a team with your Nutritional coach or nutritional therapist to set goals that will bring you to a healthy weight, provide more energy, greater mental clarity, and get you to achieve your optimum level of health.

If you physically crave sweets, carbs, processed foods, and think about how and when you can get them, you might be addicted to food. Eating large quantities of food or eating when you are not hungry but emotional (sad, happy, angry, bored, etc) can be signs of food addiction. AND if you use food as a reward system, a punishment system, or even ‘eat your feelings’ you may have an eating disorder and should seek professional help.

Mental Health Coach

A mental health coach can be a trained professional who provides support and guidance to people struggling with mental health issues. They work with individuals to develop strategies that can help them manage their emotions, cope with stress, and improve their overall well-being.
