Our program provides many options for optimal success.
Life Skills Development & Community Integration Program
While it can be overwhelming to enter an addiction recovery program, it can be even more overwhelming to think about going back into the “real world” once your treatment has ended.
A critical part of treatment at Resurgence Behavioral Health is to help you prepare for that re-entry and for moving your life forward, free of addictive behaviors.
A very important part of recovery is being able to take care of yourself after treatment. Life skills we’ll help you with at Resurgence include: job searching, finding a place to live, how to prepare and cook healthy meals, how to interact with others, and more.
Day-to-Day Routines are Important
While in the grips of active addiction, your life can pass you by without you even realizing it. Because addiction may cause you to live in a fog, or even oblivion, you may not be familiar with what you should be doing to care for yourself on a regular basis. Insufficient self-care can be a vicious cycle. As your ability to care about these things diminishes, so does your confidence in your ability to actually do them.
Developing a healthy “routine” is perhaps the most essential life skill for a recovering addict.
We’ll help you gain the confidence you need to establish and follow a day-to-day routine. Your routine is extremely important so that you develop new, healthy habits. It includes waking up at an appropriate time, ensuring you are attending recovery meetings, making sure you show up for work on time, ensuring you are getting exercise and nutritious meals, and getting plenty of sleep.
Learning to Manage Money
Managing money can be a daunting task for you if you struggle with addiction. In the past, you might have spent all your money on drugs, alcohol or risky behaviors. It’s important to your recovery and success to pay bills on time, use money responsibly, and learn to save for a rainy day. When you enter treatment, you may also need help learning to trust yourself with money and live within your means. We’re here to help you, every step of the way.
While it seems difficult to imagine going days without washing, prior to recovery, many addicts are not in tune with their bodies. This results in people forgetting or ignoring the need to wash their body. It can be difficult for an addict to admit they need help to relearn basic hygiene techniques, but it is part of the process, and the staff at Resurgence Behavioral Health is here to help you, full of compassion and free of judgment.
Taking Responsibility for Personal and Living Space
Studies have shown that when people take pride in their appearance and their belongings, they are less likely to relapse in their recovery.
During treatment, you’ll be required to keep your living space clean. As part of your treatment plan, you will be shown how to clean your room and organize your belongings. You will also learn how to do laundry, wash dishes, and clean floors.
This is expected to carry over into your transition back home. If you come to treatment homeless, your case manager can help you find access to housing.
When you enter into treatment, your medication will be. When you transition from inpatient or outpatient care, you’ll need to learn to manage your own medication regime, follow up on refills, maintain regular doses, and more. We’ll support you!
Communication and Social Skills
After addiction treatment, it can be challenging to integrate back into society. Perhaps you suffer from rage or anger issues, depression, anxiety, or other mood disorders as a result of your addiction. At Resurgence, we believe it is important to the recovery process that you learn to manage your emotions, control your anger, and deal with social situations appropriately. Through our excellent, integrated programs and highly trained, compassionate staff, you will learn to be more self-aware. You’ll learn to ask for help when you need it. You’ll develop better communication skills and learn to engage with other people in conversation.
Conflict resolution is also a critical skill we’ll teach you at Resurgence. In early recovery, you may feel irritable and suffer from mood irregularities. We’ll teach you to manage your emotions, and effectively talk through any issues that may arise with others.
Dealing with Stress
Recovery can be a stressful process. At Resurgence, you’ll have access to clinicians and support staff who can help you immediately deal with any concerns. There are a number of stress management tactics and strategies we teach, both in group and individual therapy.
Recovering addicts have to relearn how to do many things that daily life throws at them, but it is nothing to be ashamed of. It is part of the process that everyone goes through. The helpful, non-judgmental staff at Resurgence Behavioral can help you rediscover your abilities and self-confidence so you can get back to a better life, as soon as possible.
