Harbor Village Florida comments on coaches for drug-addicted mothers.

As reported by the New York Times in the article Mothers Find a Helping Hand in Sobriety Coaches (7/11), several different woman, all of whom are mothers, shared their story about how they overcame an addiction with the help of a sobriety coach. The common snag among these women was that rehab would have made it hard for them to be with their family and children during an especially tough time. Many of the women shared that they felt much more comfortable using a sobriety coach because it was more private, it fit better into their schedule, and it did not take them away from their children. They also liked that it did not require them to leave their house. The majority of women interviewed for the article suffered from alcohol addiction as well as addictions to cocaine, Adderall, Ambien, Percocet, and other drugs.

One woman compared having a personal sobriety coach as something that is more anonymous than Alcoholics Anonymous. She confided that when a woman, especially a mother, suffers from an addiction, it comes off as a bad stigma. One sobriety coach described the majority of her clients as bored moms who are longing for companionship. Some sobriety coaches even offer live-in services to help clients deal with their addiction. Sobriety coaches can be a great alternative for those who are struggling with a drug addiction but do not want to leave their family or their environment.
