Get Where You Need to Be Sober & Safe
The decision to visit a treatment facility might change your life, but planning your stay may be too much to handle, and understandably so. Sometimes it might feel too difficult to get yourself to treatment, especially if you are coming from abroad or are just getting sober.
About Sober Transport
The aim of sober transport is to provide you with a discrete, hassle-free, low-stress ride to or from inpatient treatment while providing you with emotional and practical help, encouragement, and support without passing judgement is the goal of sober transport.
An example of a sober transportation service would be:
- packing up your house and making sure it is safe before you leave.
- assisting you in readjusting to “normal life”
- ensuring that there are no drugs or alcohol in your home
- accompanying you before you go home to a meeting or peer group
- gathering everything you’ll need to make the trip comfortable
- A sober friend to provide further emotional support
This service will not only ease your transition into and out of treatment but will also relieve your friends and family of any logistical concerns and provide them peace of mind.
How Does Sober Transportation Operate?
Whether you are leaving for treatment from home, a hotel, an airport, a prison, or a rehabilitation facility, you will be met there. The sober transport professional(s) will then stick by you until you’re comfortable and secure at your new location. Your team will pick you up from the centre on the way home from treatment and will coordinate your entire trip.
Sober transport is a vital service that ensures individuals in recovery can safely and securely travel to and from their treatment-related appointments and activities.

Who Might Need Sober Transport?
Anyone who intends to enter or exit an inpatient treatment programme but is concerned about travelling alone feels overburdened by the logistics, or worries they might back out on the way there or relapse on the way home can benefit from sober transportation.
- Safety and Accountability: For individuals in early recovery, being in a vulnerable state can make it challenging to resist temptations or triggers related to substance use. Sober transport provides a safe and controlled environment, reducing the risk of relapse and ensuring accountability during transportation to treatment centres, therapy sessions, support group meetings, or other recovery-related activities.
- Avoiding High-Risk Situations: Transitioning from an inpatient rehabilitation facility or detox program back into the community can be particularly challenging. Sober transport helps individuals avoid high-risk situations such as being around people, places, or events that could trigger cravings or jeopardize their recovery. By providing a supportive environment, sober transport minimizes the chances of exposure to substances during transportation.
- Peace of Mind for Loved Ones: Family members or friends of someone in recovery often worry about their loved one’s safety during transportation. Sober transport services offer peace of mind by ensuring their loved one is accompanied by trained professionals who understand the complexities of addiction and provide necessary support and guidance throughout the journey.
- Focus on Healing: Recovering from addiction requires dedication and focus. Sober transport allows individuals to concentrate on their recovery without the distractions and stress associated with arranging transportation or navigating unfamiliar routes. By removing these logistical concerns, individuals can devote their energy to self-care, therapy, and rebuilding their lives.
- Continuity of Care: Sober transport services help maintain continuity in the recovery process by ensuring individuals reach their scheduled appointments and treatment sessions on time. This consistency enhances the effectiveness of therapy, counselling, and other recovery activities, ultimately contributing to long-term sobriety.
What Advantages Do Transport Services Offer?
Any travel arrangements you need during your treatment can be made at CATCH Recovery. Our sober transport staff are trained and properly insured to provide the best care possible. Utilising the CATCH Recovery sober transportation service has the following advantages.
All throughout your travel, we will look out for your health and safety. Depending on the distance of your trip, it might not be safe for you to stop using drugs or alcohol on the way, but a sober transport specialist can help keep you safe if you need a medical detox when you get to treatment.
If you are starting treatment, it’s possible that your loved ones have distanced themselves from you and you aren’t getting any emotional support. You can express your sentiments and opinions freely in the safe environment we’ve created for you thanks to our sober transportation team.
For the duration of the service, your sober transport team will stay in touch with all parties involved – worried family members, care managers, and/or treatment facility staff – so you don’t have to.
Confidentiality and anonymity
Teams are required to maintain anonymity because sober transportation is a discrete service. If you run into someone you know while attending the service, you are welcome to introduce the people you’re with as long as you want to keep things private and anonymous.
A sober companion and sober transport are closely connected in providing crucial support for individuals in recovery. A sober companion serves as a trusted ally who accompanies and guides individuals on their journey towards sobriety. They offer emotional support, and accountability, and help individuals navigate challenges and triggers they may encounter.
Sober transport, on the other hand, specifically focuses on ensuring safe and sober travel for individuals in early recovery. It involves professional support during transportation to help minimize the risks and temptations associated with travelling.
