what we do: support sobriety when the stakes are high

At Northstar Guides, all we do is monitoring and structured support for those who don't benefit from, or can't use, a 12-step model to meet their recovery needs. Sound like anyone you know?

If you need to demonstrate your commitment to your own recovery, we provide sobriety monitoring that meets requirements typically set by courts and licensing boards. With documented learning, targeted mentoring, plus proven sobriety, you can make it clear that you're getting better.

Sounds promising. What exactly...?

Northstar Guides monitoring offers you:

  • Real-time, live accountability for your progress, at home: SoberLink lets you demonstrate to the world and yourself that you really ARE avoiding alcohol. Ask your mentor about this monitoring device!
  • Support from a recovery mentor--not an insurance-billed intervention that goes into your medical and employment records
  • Individualized exercises and practices, matched to your triggers--not a set of cliches that 'work if you work [them]'
  • A timeline for your progress, with a short-term (12 week) process as a standard--not a lifetime of meetings to rehash your past use
  • Privacy for your problem and true confidentiality as you find your solutions to living a full, rich life--free from drinking AND talking about drinking

Am I ready to stop meeting and start living?

That is a very wise question. Just as you wouldn't walk into a gym and ask to learn safe, effective weight-lifting techniques with a broken arm, our guidance can help you once you've been safely tapered from physical dependence, or 'dried out', by medical experts if they think that is appropriate. So talk to your doctor if you're still drinking.

Northstar Guides was founded to provide comprehensive outpatient intervention and recovery support services to substance users who want to change. Our services have helped professionals, parents, children and colleagues to find their own paths in sobriety. We primarily serve licensed professionals, parents with child custody issues and people who have failed or declined the traditional 12-step-based fellowship programs.

Northstar Guides' services include recovery mentoring from certified coaches, intensive sobriety monitoring with data-driven tools, and courses for substance abusers to help them demonstrate their progress and build credibility.

Let's explore where we can go together.
