You don’t recover from an addiction once you stop using. You recover by creating a new life where it is easier to not use.
Many client liaisons at SOBA College Recovery have been in recovery for multiple years. In addition to the duties of driving, managing client schedules, taking clients on activities, they are also role models for our clients and positive guides in the recovery process.
Clients at SOBA College Recovery can look at the client liaisons and think, “if they could do it, I can.” Before someone becomes something, they have to imagine it first. It’s easier to imagine staying sober for two years, completing college, getting a job and having an apartment if you can see other people just a few years older than you doing it on a regular basis.
Our client liaisons have been trained to help others in early recovery. They know that sometimes newly sober people need to talk or vent. Having personal knowledge of early recovery as well as its pitfalls, our client liaisons provide direct assistance in providing a voice of reason, and an understanding ear no matter what struggle our clients are dealing with. This could happen in the morning, before dinner or very late at night. They are always available.
