We view addiction as a progressive illness, that only gets worse overtime, if not sufficiently treated. Much like someone with diabetes, addiction is a very treatable illness but without treatment, the results can be devastating. Individuals can experience divorce, loss of parental rights, overdose, and even death in some severe cases. Not only do our residents have to learn how to live the rest of their life sober, they also have to learn how to enjoy life again, without the use of a mind altering substance.
One way to equip them in this process, is to teach them the essential life skills they will need, after having completed 90 days of treatment. The residents will discover a wholistic approach to self care. The residents will learn emotional, and relational skills such as: communication skills, conflict resolution, anger management, coping strategies, and stress management.
Residents will also learn practical everyday skills such as: time management, cooking, cleaning, doing laundry, and learning how to live on a budget. In addiction, our residents were only focused on using, and procuring more drugs. With recovery, we hope to equip our residents with the necessary skills to live a long life filled with spirituality, community, and sobriety.
