Building Life Skills at New Day Recovery Center

When you’re struggling with addiction, many things can get lost in the process. These can include self-care, cooking and eating well, managing money, looking for work, and maintaining positive relationships. When these things are lacking, it adds to the stressors in your life, making long-term sobriety even more difficult. To help you build a solid foundation for your recovery, we offer life skills training and groups to help you live a fuller, more independent life.

What are Life Skills?

Life skills are actions you take as part of your daily routine that keep you healthy and active. They also provide crucial consistency for helping you stay on track in your recovery. Some of the important life skills you’ll learn at New Day Recovery Center — and continue to exercise after you leave — are ways to process your triggers, cope with your emotions, build positive relationships, as well as skills to help you take care of yourself and your family, find and maintain a job, and manage your money.

How Life Skills Can Help Those in Recovery

Learning life skills that you use in your recovery journey can benefit your mental, physical, and emotional health, and give you a sense of structure and confidence in yourself and your abilities.

Skills You’ll Learn

We’re here for you while you undergo treatment with us, so you have success in sobriety once you leave our care. Our trained professionals will guide you through trainings and groups to help you learn a wide variety of skills you can tap into now and years down the road.

Skills for Everyday Life

Because addiction takes complete control over your life, taking care of yourself and responsibilities often falls by the wayside. To get you to a place where you are confident and thriving, we’ll teach you skills that can help function every day. These include self-care, cooking and eating well, managing money, looking for work, and maintaining positive relationships.

Nutrition & Hygiene

Nourishing your body with healthy foods and habits, and maintaining a good hygiene regimen are basic, yet critically important needs. We’ll teach you ways to incorporate a good diet, exercise, and overall self-care to your long-term recovery.

Parenting & Relationships

Our counselors can help you manage stress and other issues relating to motherhood and guardianship, so your substance use disorder doesn’t impact your children. We’ll also educate you on ways to maintain strong bonds with other loved ones to better enrich your life.

Employment & Career

The ability to provide for yourself and those in your care is vital to managing anxiety related to making ends meet. We can assist you with writing your resumé, and developing skills for searching for work, interviewing with employers, and maintaining your job over time.

Managing Finances

Having trouble with keeping track of your expenses and income is common when struggling with addiction, but we can give you the baseline knowledge to help you to stay in the clear financially and start saving money towards your goals.

Skills for Recovery

After you undergo detox, and through other aspects of addiction treatment, you’ll learn additional, more targeted skills to help you stay sober. These skills include:

Relapse Prevention

Part of long-term recovery is knowing what to look for in your own behavior when you may be heading toward a relapse. We’ll teach you ways to identify your red flags for relapse and how to ask for help from your support network when you need it.

Trigger Management

This builds on things you learn in your individual and group therapy work, but helps you apply it to individual situations you’ll encounter on a daily basis. That way, you can better prepare for when you may face your triggers to help you stay sober.

Coping with Emotions

Substance abuse creates a heightened state of emotions, from anger to sadness, anxiety, and more. These ups and downs can throw off your ability to process emotions when they arise, but our counselors can teach you the best ways to manage them.

Sober Social Life Skills

Giving up substances doesn’t mean giving up enjoyment — in fact, having an active social life is important to avoiding feelings of isolation in your recovery. We’ll teach you ways to get out and make connections while staying sober and healthy.
