dr-sober-companion is different. dr. sober companion is made up of licensed doctors who were never drug addicts or alcoholics. Peer pressure or for whatever the reason in life, they were not cursed with the problems of addiction and don't need the supervision that all other sober companions require.
The following is actual experts from sober companion websites:
Hired Power Inc. requires their personal recovery assistants (sober companions) to have a minimal 5 years continuous sobriety, and be subject to random drug testing. Their constant supervision by a certified drug & alcohol counselor seems like it could be to monitor the personal recovery assistant as much as they monitor their clients.
The worst fear that the families of my patients have is that the enablers can get into the lives of their children. At Hired Power Inc. They are letting addicts into the lives of their clients.
These addicts or personal recovery assistants also must undergo extensive personal/professional /criminal/sex offender background checks.
Sober Champion also describes their staff as addicts who are trying to abstain from their addictions.
San Francisco native and recovering addict Douglas Caine, has many years of experience in recovery.
Pollyanne Hornbeck has been in recovery since 1999, and has provided many years of firm and loving service to women seeking relief from their addictions.
Dr. Bradley Fazekas has been in recovery since 1987.
Chicago native Stacy Matulis, in recovery from binge eating and anorexia, is an ideal resource for men and women seeking treatments for their obsessive/compulsive behaviors. Stacey credits her practice and teaching of Kundalini, Anusara, and Ashtanga Yoga with her recovery from binge eating and anorexia.
Sober Escorts Inc. describes themselves as addicts who have been there. "We are also very familiar with the fear and uncertainty associated with the decision to admit oneself to alcohol and/or drug treatment. We’ve been there."
New York Sober Champions staff includes addicts John Reidy A Queens N. Y. native, John has been in recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction since 1982. After spending much time homeless, jobless or incarcerated, he began attending meetings of several 12-Step fellowships in the York City area.
Martiza Exarchos, another addict with New York Sober Champions is an actress & model, originally from the hills of Northern California. Her introduction to drugs came in her early teens at a cast party after a successful theatrical run. Slowly but surely, the drugs took over and she dropped out of the theater. Shady parts of San Francisco became her familiar territory... She lost good friends, continually disappointed her family, and made her relationship to drugs more important than any other. A number of years ago, on assignment in Greece, Maritza hit her last bottom. She found recovery and has been an ardent supporter of other women - especially adolescents - ever since..
The list of addicts with experience as an alcoholic and drug user are endless.
