Sober Companions & Transport
When addiction is severe, you may not even trust a loved one to walk across the street, let alone drive across town to rehab or board a plane to get long-distance help. Sometimes your child, parent, or spouse has agreed to treatment because of an intervention—and time is of the essence. As part of our comprehensive addiction treatment services, Coast to Coast partners with a reputable network of sober coaches and companions residing on the East & West Coasts and across the U.S. Our experienced addiction experts provide:
• In-state and out-of-state transport to hospitals, prisons, treatment facilities & addiction recovery centers
• Door-to-door transport & companion services for work commitments, social events & important gatherings
• Transition at discharge from a residential program
• Companionship during times of transition or life stress
• In-home recovery assistance & live-in support
• Escort to AA, NA or other 12-step meetings
You want to be there when a loved one needs you, but life doesn’t always allow it. Whether you live far away, need a healthy break from an addicted family member, or are burdened by a busy work and life schedule, Coast to Coast sober companions fill in the gaps. Taking the weight off of parents and spouses, we guarantee a drug and alcohol-free environment, never leave your loved one’s side, and provide addicts with the compassion and stability they need during a turbulent time.

We have learned patience, meekness, and compassion are critical in achieving a successful conclusion to a drug intervention. We also have learned that even when the decision is painful, those involved are still associated with commitment and sacrifice.
When families decide that the intervention is necessary, they have often felt guilty for some weeks, even with the clear understanding that the goal of the intervention is to get the person into treatment and that it is not a remedy in itself nor a guarantee that treatment will immediately replace the person. What it does is get the individual into a program where he or she has a chance to change.
As intervention professionals who work in the field, we believe you do not have to wait until someone hits “rock bottom” to intervene. The idea of “rock bottom” has always been bothersome. Issues can always get more serious, and, really, the only rock bottom is the loss of a life. So, we are an advocate for doing something sooner, before “rock bottom” is truly hit. We advocate using a positive approach: no condemning. Our goal is to pick a team of individuals important to the person who we will be talking to them, with empathy and respect in order that the person will listen but not feel compelled to go on the defensive. We meet with them ahead of time, and have them write letters to the person. We pick the place where the intervention will occur and take proper precautions for safety.
We have also found over time that it is best to listen to our instincts. If someone or someplace feels wrong for the intervention, then it is most beneficial to listen to that feeling. We also feel that one should save the use of “consequences” for last and rely on them only if absolutely necessary.
The family arranges the treatment and transportation in co-operation with the program and interventionist ahead of time. And even then, we understand sometimes that we will have to adjust to unforeseen circumstances. Over the years, we have mastered the art of improvising. We help guide their decisions based on their operating basis (what is important to them). We educate and unify the family, so that no matter what happens we know that we did everything that we could! We focus on long term changes by understanding manipulations, enabling, and healthy boundaries. The whole focus of this process is to not just “get” the person to rehab but increase their willingness to take a serious look at saving their own lives.
There also may be some who are concerned by the concept of interventions. Interventions can be done in an old in-your-face judgmental way that does more to stoke the anger of those hurt by the individual’s drinking and drug use than to get the person to consent to go willingly to treatment. Our method is a pleasant, effective, alternative. Whether or not you agree with the idea of a higher power or a 12 step program or other forms of therapy, we take into consideration all forms of treatment and ways to influence the addict. We are experts in the art of how to precisely treat people and encourage them to listen and consider change. Our voice, our way of treating people with compassion, dignity, and respect along with speaking to people in a way that they are going to listen is well worth the effort.
A professional intervention could be just what you need to guide an in-denial loved one toward rehab. During Coast to Coast’s structured interventions, family members and skilled clinicians confront the drug addict in a safe, neutral environment. Speaking the truth with compassion, we bring clarity to the situation. It is our ultimate goal to bring awakening to addicts and compel them to begin immediate treatment.
