Lessons from Sober Coaching: A Hope for the Future
What we hope for makes a big difference as to how we live our lives and especially for how we overcome our addiction. Here at Recovery Care Partner, our sober coaching department believes in everyone’s capability to succeed. And that starts with believing your recovery is possible. Once we have a true sense of confidence, will be more willing to make it through recovery. However, if we ultimately don’t have faith in the future, we will grow more comfortable with defeat. We will rationalize our own addictive nature to relapse. Although faith makes a big difference, it is near impossible to “just believe” and then move forward. How do we get to a sense of confidence with the constant threat of our compulsions?
Hope from the Outside
We’ve heard it a million times, and we all know that we cannot get through addiction on our own. The reason for that is because addiction manipulates our mind and body with urgent dependency. Before recovery, dependency is at its most problematic and we can barely control ourselves. After a certain point, it is hard to believe in any hope on our own ability. But once we receive help from someone outside (i.e. our sober coaching mentors, counselors, and companions) then solutions begin to appear tangible. This lesson is one of the foundations of Recovery Care Partner: support that can make you strong enough to live your life addiction free.
How Sober Coaching Nurtures Self Reliance
At Recovery Care Partner, we offer you much needed moral, physical, medical, and relational support. You will meet counselors, companions and friends that will coach and guide you on your journey to recovery. However, the goal of our support is not only to keep you stable, but also to offer you the self-discipline to fight addiction yourself. Post recovery, you won’t always have our support to keep you stable. That is why we offer you the sober coaching skills and disciplines to eventually stand on your own two feet against addiction. Addiction is a disease that abuses our capacity to support ourselves; so our philosophy is that Hope for healthy living comes not only from outside support, but from internal support as well. At that point, you will be able to see that hope come to fruition. It is both greater than any troubles, and manifested through our love and support.
