Miami Nice: Thanks To Sober Companions
Things are extremely hot in Miami! Located on the Atlantic coast in Southeastern Florida with the most populous metropolis in the Southeastern United States after Washington, D.C. according to the latest US census. Miami is a leader and major center in culture, media, entertainment, fashion, education, commerce, the arts, finance, and substance-abuse treatment. Known as “America’s Cleanest City” for its recycling programs, air quality, and clean streets,
Miami is also home of “The Extreme Team!” The Addictions Academy and The Addictions Coach. The Academy trains professional interventionists, addiction recovery coaches, family addiction recovery coaches, anger management practitioners, life coaches, and many other professionals; The Addictions Coach provides professionals for those in need on an hourly, weekly, or monthly basis. These experts are trained by the best in the industry, we know to be the best, you have to be trained by the best!
“Experience is the teacher of all things.” –Julius Caesar
People from all over the country and world send their loved ones to South Florida for substance-abuse treatment, there seems to be a concentration of detoxes, residential-treatment centers, out-patient facilities, sober houses, interventionists, therapists, counselors, coaches, and other recovery professionals all within a centralized area.
The very wealthy, the elite, the glamorous also come from all over the world to Miami. Numerous high-end restaurants and night clubs have opened with famous chefs and owners. It doesn’t matter if you’re comparing yachts or bank accounts, the competition is fierce in South Florida, they say, down right cut-throat! The pressure is on to be beautiful, to maintain a certain lifestyle, to entertain and be entertaining; drugs and drinking are everywhere!
It’s no surprise that so many individuals of status end up with substance abuse, alcoholism, and process addictions. South Florida has created the perfect storm to breed addiction! We know that c-suite crowd are a special group of people with different needs than regular people. Elite individuals suffering with addiction problems certainly are going to have special needs that are different from other people’s needs. When it comes to finding solutions South Florida’s elite will need a special breed of addiction professional.
The “High-powered” crowd’s alpha mentality is the treatment professional’s greatest challenge when trying to help one of these clients. Experienced, seasoned professional interventionists know that when dealing with these type clients, wealthy executives don’t often hit a bottom in addiction because of their financial ability, power, and political connections. Wealthy executives and high-powered people are always concerned about perceptions because of the impact it can have on their company and family. Misguided wealthy CEOs are used to throwing money at problems looking for an easy solution rather than doing the work to solve the problem.
Palm Beach County in particular has a thriving recovery industry that caters to wealthy substance abusers. Treatment centers range from $8,000 a month on the low-end to over $75,000 a month on the high-end. Some of the facilities who cater to the elite offer private chefs, massage, acupuncture, private, luxury rooms, Olympic-swimming pools, trainers, steam rooms, saunas, hot tubs, art therapy, yoga, expressive arts, free parking, any luxury you can imagine. The elite expect accommodations that they are used to having and nothing less.
Addiction Coaches, Sober Escorts, Recovery Assistants, Recovery Coaches, Sober Coaches, or Sober Companions, you may have heard these terms before. Whatever you call them, a sober companion or coach is a highly trained, specialized addiction recovery professional who works with their clients on a close, personal basis. These coaches are trained with very specific skill sets, core competencies, and are tried, tested, and proven individuals who offer guidance and support in this client and goal driven field.
Professional-Recovery Coaches or Professional- Sober Companions can have different roles:
Sessions hourly by contract.
Live-in by contract for longer periods of time.
Join you for a dinner party, office event, or on the yacht for the day.
Travel by contract.
Stay with you to get you through that difficult meeting, traumatic circumstance, or difficult day.
The coach does whatever it takes to achieve solution or client goals and objectives. The cost for a Recovery Coach on average ranges from $250 dollars per hour to $1,500 to $2,500 per day. Recovery coaching started back in 1984 when the rock-group Aerosmith was attempting a comeback; California-based addiction specialist Bob Timmons helped the band members get clean and sober. Timmons provided a recovery support system in a very toxic pace, on tour and back stage. Recovery coaching was born!
High-profile people can’t just walk into a twelve-step meeting after changing the world! It makes much more sense to have a recovery coach go to them, protect their privacy, security, and use their expert training and skills to help the person to reach a solution.
