Drug and alcohol recovery can be overwhelming. The first days and weeks of addiction recovery are like no other time in a person’s life. Early recovery requires both mental and physical support. A rehab program with early recovery plans and life skills groups can help build a firm foundation for successful sobriety.
If you or someone you know needs an addiction recovery plan, call Mile High Recovery Center today 855.796.2102. Our Denver, Colorado rehab programs provide comprehensive life skills groups and addiction treatment plans for people navigating early recovery.
Life Skills Groups Set Clients Up for a Successful Recovery
Most rehab programs focus on creating daily structures to help clients stay sober when they return to normal life. This can help clients reduce stress, manage triggers, and see the big picture. This structure can range from daily meal planning to scheduling time for therapy, exercise, and hobbies. Day-to-day planning and structure can reduce the risk of relapse and give people a sense of control over their daily lives.
Life skills groups focus on education and practice. At Mile High Recovery Center, our life skills groups focus on communication, problem-solving, creative thinking, and assertiveness to build resilience. Clients develop daily strategies for managing life stressors and addiction triggers through group practice and learn to self-regulate without substance use. These groups include:
- Self-care and stress management
- Negotiation skills
- Learning to say no and self-advocate
- Listening skills
- Job skills like financial management, math, reading, and writing skills
- Practicing communication
- Developing daily schedules
Life skills groups can help those in early recovery build community and regain confidence in staying sober and succeeding in their daily lives.
Early Recovery Addiction Planning for Success
Life skills groups also help those in early recovery develop detailed plans to avoid relapse. Written recovery plans provide a sense of order and structure. This can help clients navigate the overwhelming range of physical and psychological experiences they experience in early recovery. These plans can help clients live in the present while looking at the next several months or years of sobriety. When clients reach a milestone in their recovery plan, they can see their success in writing. Plans often include sober living facilities, 12-step programs, and alumni programs. Mile High Recovery Center focuses on a tiered step-down recovery plan which gives clients one year of treatment and recovery support. Our staff members help clients craft individualized recovery plans focused on mental health, self-care, and job skills for successful long-term sobriety.
