Our Life Skills Program is based on USA's Ken Seeley's Intervention 911 USA model of care to provide an opportunity to expedite a person’s journey to living a happy life in recovery.
People experiencing addiction generally stop emotionally maturing at the age they start using. That being said, once a person undergoes treatment and starts to live life without drugs, they often have very limited basic life skills. There is a distinct difference between an individual being abstinent from drugs, alcohol and gambling, and an individual living a life in recovery. The Life Skills Program aims to address this difference. Our Life Skills Program is part of our Intensive Inpatient Program or can be accessed and added onto our Sober Living Program or as an Outpatient.
Life Skills Coaches provide ongoing assessment to improve an individual’s behaviors, attitude and sense of achievement, with the overall goal to become accountable and productive members of their family and the Community.
Our Life Skills Coaches collaborate with the person on core skills like scheduling their day, shopping, self-care, finances, and navigating daily struggles. Another key element of the program is fine tuning interpersonal communication skills and assisting the client in meeting their career and/or education goals. We include family members in the planning process to ensure well developed plans that include recovery plans for all involved.
The life skills program is really a complete lifestyle overhaul that focuses on emotional growth with an emphasis on responsibility and accountability and can make all the difference for the client’s success with personal growth.
Our Life Skills Coaches are trained to compassionately address any non-compliance with the Life Skills Program in a non-judgmental manner. Accountability to our Life Skills Program reduces conflict within the family and increases the chance of a well-balanced recovery life while maintaining the client’s dignity. By allowing our Life Skills Coaches to monitor and encourage change, this enables family members to redevelop healthy relationships, while working on their own recovery plans.
