Connections in Recovery (CiR), established in 2011, provides sober companion and case management support in Los Angeles, New York City, and London and Paris, by assisting individuals who are most vulnerable in our society–people with psychiatric illnesses, substance use disorder, or other personal challenges–and advocating for those who may be unable to do so for themselves. 

Connections in Recovery’s case managers can be thought of as a safety net that helps to catch people who are in trouble. The purpose of case management is to assist clients in connecting to resources that can considerably improve the quality of their lives. These professionals utilize cutting-edge psychological research and inquiry to best aid their clients in reintegrating into society comfortably and with an increasing emphasis on healthy self-reliance. Mental health case managers prioritize the biopsychosocial needs of the patient at all times. 

CiR’s case managers collaborate with clinicians and treatment teams, performing the “heavy lifting” work with families in order to ensure ongoing cohesion of the team. We act as the buffer between families and the treatment team. We will also oversee companions and coaches who are working on each case, maintaining ethics and professionalism throughout the duration of a client’s wellness plan.
