When we begin relying on a dangerous drug in order to feel normal, we stop developing the life skills needed for daily independent life. A life skills program can help you learn the skills you stopped developing during your addiction. At Crestview Recovery, we provide you with the tools you need to do that, including life skills rehab.
What Is Life Skills Therapy?
Life skills are the things that most people rely on every day to manage their life and needs. A person in rehab may have lost many of these skills because of their addiction. Substance abuse disorders can make it hard for you to cope with challenges and stress. It can also impact your overall self-esteem and confidence. You may know that daily life isn’t easy, even without addiction. With a drop in these life skills, it may become impossible for you to move through life without relapse risk. In a life skills therapy program, we work to fix that.
What You’ll Achieve in Life Skills Rehab
When you enroll in a drug or alcohol treatment program with our team, you’ll learn closely what your deficits are. You’ll learn what may be the biggest obstacle for you to overcome to achieve your best outcome. These are the things you will learn in life skills rehab. Here are some of the skills you may develop in this type of program.
Living on Your Own
You may learn more about how to live on your own again. This may include learning how to take care of your space while also learning to cook and do laundry. You may receive retraining in personal hygiene or how to create healthy meals. This will become important for you if you’ve depended on other people for a long time and are not struggling to find a way to manage it all on your own.
Drug addiction can also make it hard for you to develop relationships. You may even find it hard to communicate with people. Eye contact can become very difficult for you. Other people struggle with maintaining proper personal space. In life skills rehab, we work with you to overcome those struggles significantly. You don’t have to live in isolation because of this lack of skills.
One of the biggest indicators of relapse risk is unmanaged stress. Everyone faces stress, but a person with few strategies for effectively managing it may find it very hard to work through the day. Our goal is to teach you stress management to overcome these tight situations, so you do not resort to using drugs or alcohol to get through them.
Sadness, anger, frustration, and many other emotions are commonly expressed by men and women going through addiction. Yet, expressing those feelings in the right manner isn’t always easy. That’s why our team will work closely with you to create a plan to do so. You’ll learn how to manage emotions in a productive manner.
