Life Skills Training & Education

Recovering from an addiction can be a daunting task, with detox and withdrawal only being the beginning of the process. Once detox is successfully completed, a person is faced with living a sober lifestyle that may be completely unfamiliar to them.

At Promont Wellness, we believe in accessible, individualized addiction treatment therapies that can help clients from detox to long-term health and well-being. We offer comprehensive treatments and addiction therapies, including a life skills program that can support clients as they transition back into their new, healthier way of life. You can contact us today at 866.545.9552 if you’d like to learn more about how we can help ease the transition into day-to-day life.

What exactly is a life skills program?

A life skills program aims to teach clients the basic life skills that they need in order to lead a healthy and successful life. These skills help ensure lifelong recovery and improved mental and physical health. The core life skills are as follows:

  • Self-awareness – Knowing one’s strengths, weaknesses, desires, likes, and dislikes.
  • Coping with emotions – Identifying one’s emotions and how those emotions influence their behaviors. Responding appropriately to these emotions.
  • Coping with stress – Acknowledging how one’s stress can affect life. Recognizing sources of stress and how to control one’s own stress levels.
  • Critical thinking – The ability to process experiences and analyze information.
  • Creative thinking – The ability to imagine the consequences of action or inaction given a situation. Being able to hypothetically explore all available alternatives.
  • Decision-making – The ability to deal with life decisions.
  • Problem-solving – The ability to deal with issues as they come through life.
  • Communication – Knowing the culturally and socially appropriate verbal and non-verbal ways of expression.
  • Interpersonal relationships – Knowing how to relate positively to others.
  • Empathy – The ability to imagine a different perspective, regardless of familiarity with the situation.

A life skills program is a key component of the recovery process and can help ensure lasting success and long-term sobriety.


Is Life Skills Important in Treatment?

The short answer is yes. Typically, when a person is in the throes of an addiction, they find themselves completely absorbed with the substance that they are using. Once detox is over, and they are trying to resume their everyday life, it is often disorienting to lose what used to be a large part of their daily habits. This makes it seem easier to fall back into old routines that can result in a return to using. In life skills programs that are integrated with addiction treatment, clients in recovery will be taught how to navigate their new sober lifestyles.

Stories of hope

What clients say about us...

“I’d like to thank Courtney from the bottom of my heart. She helped me through the scary process of getting into treatment and then treated me with respect and compassion. The treatment process was scary, vulnerable and uncomfortable, but she did everything she could to make me feel as comfortable as possible. I have become an active member of the recovery community and could not have done it without the guidance and expertise Courtney provided throughout treatment.”
