Our Treatment Model | The Five Core Competencies

Specifically tailored to the young adult population, our treatment model allows clients to emerge excited with goals and plans for a future free from drugs & alcohol.
Integrated throughout our treatment programs, the Five Core Competencies help young adults develop skills that they can apply to both treatment and real life situations to enable both long-term sobriety and independence. The Five Core Competencies include:

Why Choose an Age-Specific Program?
Young adults are at a unique crossroads in life as they face a new set of responsibilities and new-found independence. During this critical stage of self-discovery and development, the pressure to live up to the expectations of others can be overwhelming. While some find ways to cope with and balance their new responsibilities, others look for ways to escape it. Pressure from peers, the media and other sources lead some to experiment with drugs and alcohol. In a generation where many young adults’ identities are base on their online personas, societal acceptance of drugs and alcohol propel them further into their addiction.
The experiences of young adults are unique and often hard to relate to by others who’ve already overcome this plateau. The representation of people’s lives and activities online and in the media can create a false illusion that perpetuates the belief that drug and alcohol abuse is common, desirable and the right thing to engage in. These factors make their experiences unique and the attention they require different from those of other generations. These experiences must be taken into account when treating substance addiction and preparing young adults for the world they will reenter once completing treatment. It is because Sober College specifically addresses the unique life factors of this age group that their young adult treatment program proves to be particularly effective in the treatment of young adult substance abuse and addiction.
Treating addiction as an age-specific issue allows clients to explore topics, issues and side effects that other age groups may not similarly face. The environments where addiction develops, life experiences and perception are all influenced by age-specific factors. Group therapy, for example, is more effective when individuals listen and respond to issues they can more readily relate to. Young adults may begin abusing drugs and alcohol for reasons that others may not understand due to age disparities. Differences in understanding can create barriers which may make some unwilling and/or uncomfortable with sharing, thus, making treatment ineffective.
