Life Skills Training at Into Action
Life Skills Group
One of the problems facing society today is that people become addicted to drugs and alcohol. Anyone experimenting with drugs or alcohol can become addicted. For some it is a gradual process, and for others it only takes one time to become addicted to a particular substance.
When people become addicted, it is not just the addiction itself that is harmful to individuals and their families, but also the loss of life skills that many take for granted. For some, great losses in self-confidence are also experienced. It is important that a whole-person approach be taken when people are breaking their addiction with drugs and alcohol.
Into Action Treatment provides individuals with the life skills training they need to get back to their lives. Life skills groups cover the facets of life that non-addicts often take for granted; they cannot easily relate to the loss of these skills. Things as simple as personal hygiene often must be re-learned. The staff and counselors at Into Action Treatment understand this and are able to re-teach these and other lost skills. Relearning such basic skills may seem embarrassing to addicts at first, but skills that are lost can affect other areas of life, including job seeking. Employers only want to hire those applicants who are mature enough to work for them, and if an applicant does not seem to be able to carry out basic hygiene and other skills, such as wearing clean clothing, finding employment can be difficult.
Life Skills Training
Our staff at Into Action spends time with clients, helping them relearn lost life skills. Our life skills training teaches individuals the importance of good personal hygiene, but also helps them learn other skills that will help them find a job, such as developing a resume, job interview etiquette, and being punctual for interviews. Increasing a person’s level of maturity by being able to take on simple tasks again and function normally helps a person’s growth. Self-confidence is increased when a recovering or former addict realizes he or she is completing the steps needed to gain increasingly larger amounts of independence.
Beating addiction is difficult in itself, but many slip back into addiction because basic life skills, including those regarding personal hygiene, were overlooked. Many Florida drug rehab centers concentrate on the party aspect of drug addiction and how to avoid it. This alone is not enough. We increase the chances of a full and complete recovery from addiction to drugs and alcohol by ensuring that lost life skills are re-taught.
If you or a loved one is suffering with an addiction, call Into Action Treatment to schedule an appointment and not only beat addiction but regain the skills to return to a healthy, productive life.
