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 include job searching, finding a place to live, how to prepare and cook healthy meals, how to interact with others, and more. These are detailed below.
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 goes away, so does your confidence in your ability to actually do them.
Developing a healthy “routine” is the perhaps the most essential life skill for a recovering addict.
We’ll help you gain the confidence your need to establish and follow a day-to-day routine. Your routine is extremely important so that you develop new habits. It will includes waking up at an appropriate time, ensuring you are attending recovery meetings, making sure you show up for work on time and ensuring you are getting exercise and nutritious meals. Getting plenty of restful sleep is imperative to your recovery as well.
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 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 learn to live within your means. We’ll help you with that.
While it seems difficult to imagine going days without washing, prior to recovery, many addicts don’t have the ability to be in tune with their bodies. This results in people forgetting or even ignoring the need to wash their body. It can be difficult for an addict to admit they need help to learn to wash themselves, 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 judgement.
Taking Responsibility for Personal Space and Homes
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, you’ll be given your medications by medical personnel. When you transition from inpatient or outpatient care, you’ll need to learn to manage your own medication regime, follow up on refill needs, 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 and 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 if 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 guide you to manage your emotions, and effectively talk through issues 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 their concerns. There are a number of stress management tactics and strategies we teach, both in groups and individual therapy.
Recovering addicts must learn to do a lot of things over again. 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.
