Sobriety Coaching – Post-Treatment Support
Veterans who have successfully completed our primary care treatment program will have the opportunity to work intensively with a sobriety coach as they transition to the next phase of their recovery. The goal is to help the client maintain total abstinence or harm reduction from any addiction and to establish healthy routines at home.
Sobriety Coaches, such as Michael Walsh on Vancouver Island, will guide, mentor and monitor the progress of veterans as they embark on vocational or educational endeavours after treatment. When combined with other aspects of our therapeutic model such as aftercare planning and transitional housing, sobriety coaching provides an additional level of support for men leaving our program.
