Life skills education is an important part of addiction treatment and  Florida drug rehab. We teach clients skills to help them get back on track. Active addiction interrupts life and hinders learning. For this reason, we’ll help with resume writing, job search assistance and coaching.

Life Skills Education for "Life"

Most people in active addiction endure their days in a fog, concerned only with being high, finding the next high, and finding the money to fund their drugs. They lose touch with how to handle basic daily responsibilities and lose interest in doing it.

Creating a Healthy Routine

Creating a healthy routine is the most essential life skill for a recovering addict. Florida addiction treatment centers put recovering addicts in activities that help them follow a daily regimen. Activities include attending meetings, therapy, meals and leisure time. A typical schedule involves waking up at the same time every day and going to bed at a set bedtime. A healthy routine helps a recovering addict stay grounded and resist the urge to go back to old ways.

Medication Management

Many addicts struggle with mental health disorders that require medication. Having a mental health disorder means the individual is dealing with additional problems beyond substance abuse. Any mental health problems must be addressed along with the addiction problem. The two problems are often interrelated. Substance abuse is often a form of self-medicating. Learning how to manage medication safely and responsibly is essential for a healthy lifestyle.

Interpersonal Skills

Most in active addiction are self-centered and struggle with loneliness. Learning how to interact properly with others is important but often difficult. Successful recovery usually requires making a new group of friends. Avoiding situations and friends that the addict used to abuse substances with can assist in recovery. Some important social skills include:

  • Maintaining emotional balance
  • Self-awareness and understanding
  • Engage others in conversation
  • Increased communication skills

A recovering addict must re-learn how to function in the world. Our Florida addiction treatment program provides a protective, supportive environment. Here, the client can focus entirely on learning these skills before attempting to reclaim their place in their home community.

"I attended Simple Path in June of 2019. I had never tried to get sober and I never went to treatment before. I was scared and vulnerable. I immediately felt safe at Simple Path. In the IOP the therapists listened to me, like actually heard and genuinely cared about me. They not only helped me on my path to sobriety but they also helped me immensely with my trauma. God willing I'll have 16 months on the 1st. I couldn't have done it without all the love and care from Simple Path. Thank you to Cathy, Heidi, Carrie, Emily, Sammy Jo and Ian!"
