You can hire a Sober Companion or Sober Body-Guide, for a day, a week, or for as long as it takes, and BOTH are targeted on complete abstinence.
A Sober Companion works with a client who is willing to engage and actively participated in their recovery.
A Sober Body-Guide is there to keep the person sober and drug free no matter what, even if they don’t want to be.

Treatment Advisory Service
I know that our movie benefitted greatly from Ian’s input and I will be recommending him and his Sober Consultancy services in other Lionsgate movie productions.
On meeting Ian for the first time I immediately felt very comfortable and at ease in his company. A week later I was due to go on business abroad, these certain trips were always my most vulnerable times (airports, business meetings etc.) so I decided to give sober services a try. Ian picked me up promptly in the very early hours of the morning (in a very nice comfortable car) and drove me to Heathrow airport. We chatted all the way to the airport and I was made to feel at ease before boarding my flight. Upon my return Ian was again prompt and returned me home safely.
A couple of weeks later I had to attend a family function, (these were always big trigger points for me), and I invited Ian to accompany me. Ian introduced himself as a friend and was welcomed by all members of my family, and again I returned home safe and sober….
A few months have passed now and I’m still sober thanks to the help, genuine care and support from Ian and Sober Services. Many thanks
On the very first day I called Ian he was able to react to our situation immediately and had two people on the job that very afternoon.
The level of advice, support, experience and resources that Sober Services provide is quite impressive.
This particular assignment had its own challenges… confidentiality and being able to adapt to constantly changing schedule were key!
Sober Services fitted around our requirements perfectly and got the job done.
