Sober Escort Services
Intervention to Treatment
Southworth Associates insists that all our clients be escorted into treatment following an intervention. Our interventionists are always available for this service, and sometimes a family member elects to accompany their loved one along with the interventionist or escort the client on their own. If additional assistance is needed, for whatever reason, Southworth Associates is available to provide a sober companion escort.
Between treatment programs
If your loved one needs to transition between treatment centers or to another level of care Southworth Associates Sober Companions can provide a qualified escort between care providers. The transition between structured environments can be very traumatic for someone on the early road to recovery and we can help them make that transition as safely and seamless as possible.
Back Home from Treatment
Once primary or even a secondary term of treatment has been completed your loved one faced the arduous task of returning home to what may seem to be a foreign environment when looked at through the eyes of early recovery. Their treatment program will do their best to prepare them for this day and Southworth Associates can provide a sober companion that can escort the client home and stay as long as you like to help get them acclimated to their new life of recovery.
Sober Companion Services
The need for a Sober Companion extends well beyond escorting a person to and from addiction treatment.

- Helping to locate and attend first local 12 Step Meetings
- Reintroduction to the family post-discharge (back to family meeting)
- Resuming work/career (back to work meeting)
