Individual sessions

As a recovery coach or a sober companion, Zach Dorfman is someone you can rely on 24/7 to walk you through your cravings or help you through a panic attack. He specializes in substance abuse and mental health life coaching. 

Zach has an individualized approach to every client. He understands that no two addicts are the same and focuses on specific personal traumas. He says, although we are all different individuals, no one is immune to problems. Regardless of your individual problem, an expert sober companion’s goal is to help you abstain from drugs, alcohol, self-harm, or any other addicting behavior. 

Thousands of addicts seek treatment every year. However, the true test of recovery starts after treatment has ended and the integration into sober life has begun. A treatment center is a very controlled environment with a strict schedule, no access to drugs or alcohol, and a therapist by your side whenever you feel triggered. 

Once the reintegration into the “real world” begins, triggers appear everywhere- in the form of family members, a job, or even a restaurant where others may be drinking. 

An experienced life coach in LA can help you learn how to live life sober and what to do after recovery. Contact a certified professional recovery coach today.

How Does a Certified Professional Recovery Coach Help?

A good peer recovery coach, like Zach Dorfman, teaches recovering addicts healthy sober habits. A professional recovery coach also helps connect you with recovery resources and support such as:

  • 12- Step NA and AA meetings
  • SMART recovery
  • A sponsor to take you through the steps
  • A qualified therapist, psychologist, or psychiatrist or other medical professionals for your specific needs
  • Self-help mental health recovery groups
  • Extracurricular activities

Zach Dorfman is particularly prominent in Southern California recovery because he works closely with clinicians to help them better understand what is going on with the client. Sometimes relying on self-reporting does not provide enough insight into the struggles and difficulties the client is going through. Together, the clinician along with the peer recovery coach can better help the client achieve their goals. 

A peer recovery coach comes up with an individualized plan for your recovery and helps you stay accountable. A good peer recovery coach also understands that modifications to this plan may need to be made as you progress forward. He is a professional life coach who is on call 24/7 to help you whenever you need it.

A good sober living coach also helps you find new ways to enjoy your life without drugs and alcohol. While in active addiction you usually don’t know how to live or enjoy your life without drugs or alcohol. Once the drugs and alcohol are gone, we need to find new ways to explore life and enjoy every moment. This makes our sobriety worthwhile. 

A peer recovery coach and mental health coach is there to help you with every area of your life. They can teach you to create healthy boundaries, which do not exist in active addiction. They can teach you to communicate with friends, family, and coworkers, which we used to manipulate in addiction. 

A life coach will give you the motivation and confidence you need to maintain your sobriety.

The main job of a recovery life coach is to facilitate treatment engagement to support long-term recovery and help you see the beauty in life without drugs or alcohol. Zack Dorfman is a professional peer recovery coach working in the Los Angeles area in California.
