As a sober coach, Vance’s primary duty is to provide the scaffolding in the early days of sobriety. He starts by to building trust and helps his clients normalize the basics of living an intoxicant-free life. Similar to a personal trainer, he will give you the support to lift the weights yourself. He teaches clients how to implement tools to handle real-life situations, feelings, and triggers as they come up so that they can achieve long-term sobriety.
