At Sober 4 Life, we require all residents to connect with a Recovery Mentor or a Sponsor within 30 days of residency.
Your Recovery Mentor is your accountability partner(s). He or they are someone who is also in recovery and may be at the same stage as you or a little further ahead. He may be a fellow resident in a S4L residence, but that is not required. All that is required is that he is clean and sober, and someone you are comfortable with. Since you are both on par with each other in your recovery journeys, you can be his Recovery Mentor as well.
S4L does not require that you meet formally with one another on a specific schedule, but it does want the assurance that you are holding one another accountable where sobriety is concerned. That means talking about your struggles with each other and sharing victories with each other on a regular basis. Your Recovery Mentor is not your Sponsor; that is a different role, which is explained next.
