The Challenge of Staying Sober While Traveling

For many in early recovery, summer can feel like a minefield. Every BBQ, beach trip, and family gathering seems to center around drinking. It’s tough to navigate these situations, especially when you’re working hard to stay sober and show your loved ones that you’re serious about your recovery. Trust takes time to rebuild, and demonstrating your commitment to sobriety can be a key part of that process.

When indisputable proof of sobriety is needed, there’s no better option than Soberlink. Known as an “alcohol monitoring system,” Soberlink’s technology provides accountability and rebuilds trust.

Real-Life Experiences

Jock, a Soberlink client, shared how the system seamlessly fit into his life. “I could conveniently integrate it into my life. The three blows a day. And it was discreet, too. So I’ve taken it everywhere with me. It’s gone on camping trips, it’s gone on holiday vacations, it’s gone to Iceland, it’s gone to Norway. It’s been up and down the Pacific Northwest.”

Similarly, Laetitia found Soberlink to be an invaluable tool during her travels. “It was really useful for me to have for when I wanted to travel. I wanted to be able to go see friends, go out to a restaurant for dinner, and really be able to live my life. The whole point of getting sober is to embrace life in a new way, not become a shut-in and sit at home and be alone.
