The Next Sober Life is a sober community that Scorch and Erin created to provide a space for sober, sober-curious, and sober-allies to feel more capable, confident, and ready to accomplish what they never thought possible. The mission of the organization is to create an environment where confidence, productivity, unity, and the pursuit of whole body health are the centerpiece to sustaining and capitalizing on a sober lifestyle. The Antidote Juice is the nutritional aspect to The Next Sober Lifestyle brand, and it provides a product that heath-conscious individuals can consume with intention.
Erin’s mission when starting The Antidote Juice was to make healthy food both accessible and approachable. With a master’s degree in public health and community nutrition, she truly believes that all the answers to our health lie in the food we eat. After years of working in the service industry, she knows first hand that the New Orleans’ service industry workers are an important yet neglected aspect in our community. That’s why she knew that juice delivered downtown would be a welcomed service. The juice recipes she crafted using her bartending experience are both complex, delicious, and nutritious, and the best part about juice is you can nourish your body even during a busy shift.
Scorch is an expert in pushing the envelope when it comes to whole body health. After getting sober from decades of drug and alcohol abuse, he never let his progress plateau. He is always looking for new ways to heal and grow, and he has developed a passion for helping others on their journey to complete health. His commitment to a sober lifestyle is the not-so-secret method to making your wildest dreams come true. The day he and Erin met was the day Erin decided to get sober herself. That same day in 2016, they agreed that one day, they would open a juice bar in New Orleans. Four years later, that dream became reality.
