Life Skills & Career Development
What Our Life Skills Training & Assistance Program Offers
Our life skills training and assistance program offers a variety of different training and educational courses in order to help our clients transition into independent living. Life skills are normally developed from childhood into early adulthood. Unfortunately for addicts and alcoholics they often either do not develop or lose the necessary skills to lead healthy and independent lives. Our program focuses on developing skills like time management, financial literacy, and stress management in order to help our clients transition to living healthy, fulfilling, and independent lives in recovery. The program includes education on skills including:
- Budgeting and money management
- Housing assistance and placement
- Nutritional planning and education
- Education on managing and building credit
- Meal planning
- Financial management education including investments and retirement planning
- Self-care techniques
- The importance of exercise and assistance in creating a healthy routine
- Stress management techniques
- Assistance in obtaining doctors and scheduling appointments
What Our Education & Career Development Program Offers
We also offer an education and career development program in order to help our clients develop new skills which can help them establish a long term and successful career path. While in active addiction, individuals normally cannot maintain steady employment and struggle with gaining education and skills that can lead to a successful future. Finding employment and gaining an education can seem like an overwhelming process in early recovery. The goal of our education and career development program is to ease the stress of this process for our clients and set them up for success. Our education and career development program offers services including:
- Resume and cover letter development
- Assisting clients with their job search
- Assisting clients with applying to educational programs
- Employment referrals and networking
- Building a Linkedin profile
- Developing interview skills
- Finding the best career path
- Professionalism and workplace etiquette
- College Workshops
- Technical Program Certificates
- Assistance in obtaining GEDs
How Our Life Skills & Career Development Works
Our life skills and career development program is personalized for each of our clients needs and goals. We take an initial assessment of each of our clients before starting the life skills and career development process. The assessment is designed to tell our clinical staff what are the strengths and weaknesses of each individual. It can also help us understand the goals that our patients may have for their future career path and education. Once the assessment is completed, we work one on one with our clients in order to create a customized life skills and career development plan.
Through the customized life skills and career development plan we then know what programs and training to focus on them. We want our clients to be passionate about their future goals, which is why we focus on understanding their individual needs. Early recovery is a very stressful and uncertain time, by creating healthy and exciting goals it encourages our clients to continue working towards long-term recovery. We also understand that it is important to set up every single one of clients for lasting success. Studies show that when addicts and alcoholics are participating in life skills and career development programs they have a higher chance of achieving long-term recovery.
Our goal at The Healing Center is for every single one of our clients to leave our program set up for success and have the skills they need to succeed in their recovery journey.
