Skills that Make Life Easy for Recovering Addicts
The Sober College Life Skills Infusion program works with residents to teach and develop necessary life skills they will need to succeed during and after their stay. Achievement in Life Skills is arrived at through a combined practical and learning approach that focuses on staff directing residents through teachable moments. It is within these teachable moments that the individual strengths and deficits of every student is understood, coached and re-directed and/or supported.
Residents are responsible for taking care of their living space, and completing chores in all phases of the Sober College program. Many young people have never been taught, or required to do simple day-to-day tasks that they will need when they are living on their own
Life skills programs for addicts teach them to cope up with the any situation. The programs also help the addicts to lead a sober life after treatment. Different skills are developed by addicts with the help of counselors. Recovering addicts are enlightened about outpatient and after care treatment programs in adjacent locality.
Life skills for recovering patients help them to be in perfect balance with their body and soul. Skills teach the recovering addicts to lead a hygienic life. Eating nutritious food and indulging into some kind of exercise is must. Detoxification process cleanses the body completely. Addicts often suffer from medical issues after detoxification and withdrawals, thus proper medical care is needed apart from healthy food and exercise.
As residents progress through the Sober College program they will have the opportunity to live in a number of unique residential environments. These include primary residential housing, apartment based living, sober living, community based independent apartment living, and aftercare support. Each residential level carries varied and unique life skills challenges that have the consistent theme and function of moving residents towards independence.
Sober College educates their students in practical financial skills. Through a series of interactive workshops, online learning systems and group activities, students are brought to a better understanding of their own relationship with money and how that will influence decisions for them.
