Life Skills Training

Many women in recovery benefit from a life skills training program as part of women’s addiction treatment programs. This program, which is part of our comprehensive approach to addiction treatment at Soledad House, can help you rebuild your life in sobriety. Addiction can cause damage to your physical and mental health, your relationships, and even your finances. Life skills training can help you get back on your feet and become the healthiest version of yourself. With help and support from experienced therapists and addiction treatment specialists, you’ll work on self-care habits, financial planning, meal planning, and finding steady income and stable housing after treatment.

If you’re struggling with drug and alcohol addiction and are ready for a new life, reach out to Soledad House today. In our women’s recovery center in California, we offer life skills training in addition to our relapse prevention programs.

Etta is by far the best house manager I have ever had. She is one of the most hard working females I have ever met in my life. I love Etta.

When I prioritize the reasons that today I am 240 days sober!! I list God first & Soledad 2nd! & That is an absolute fact. My initial move to a sober living in California did not include Soledad but how grateful i am that God had a different plan. From the moment I was picked up at the airport I knew I was in the right place. The therapists, administrative staff, & house & day managers are absolutely amazing & felt more like FAMILY than employees of Soledad & now I am also grateful to Soledad because I am an employee as well!! The support I received whether it was therapeutic, Drs appointments, insurance or Short term disability assistance was phenomenal & readily given. I always FELT KELLY MATTERED which is something we don't feel from the world while on active addiction. I will end with this: if you have reached the point of Desperation due to your addiction & are ready to start living a healthy life as we were all meant to then SOLEDAD Treatment is exactly who & where you should be. GOD BLESS SOLEDAD & THE STAFF

I finally found a place where I could be safe. My entire life I've been searching for stability, unconditional love and a chance to have my own identity. I found that here at Soledad House. It wasn't easy and I stood in my own way a lot. The people at Soledad never gave up on me but they didn't baby me either. They let me know daily that I was worthy of living the life I had always imagined. They helped me to begin looking at my trauma and the shame around it. At Soledad House I am surrounded by the most powerful women who understand the seriousness of this disease and the courage it takes to fight it. Without this program I don't think I would be here right now. I am eternally grateful for Soledad House and the women on this journey with me. If you are looking for a program for you or someone else, please look into this one!

I wish I had heard of Soledad earlier. It would’ve cut down a lot on my time spent in treatment if I had gotten to go straight to such an organized, segmented program that actually helps you set up for discharge and begin your life outside of treatment. Best treatment facility I’ve been to.

I will have 4 years of sobriety in a few months. I owe so much of that to Soledad. I will forever be grateful for my time there. No recovery program is perfect, but I can confidently say that they genuinely care about every woman that walks through their doors.

After 70 days of treatment from my previous treatment center, I decided to come to Soledad House. Let me tell you... best decision I ever made in a lifetime. What Soledad has instilled in me are things I will always carry in my recovery. The staff, counselors, doctors and admin make this place what it is. The homes are beautiful and the support I have received from the girls at this program will last a lifetime. I am almost 6 months sober now and owe it to this place. They also offer aftercare, which I am going to, and sober living as well. I dont think I would have come as far as I am now in my recovery if it was not for Soledad House. If you are ready for chance of a life changing experience , Soledad House is the place for you. THANK YOU SOLEDAD!

The Importance of Life Skills Training in Addiction Recovery

Life skills training can help you improve your life in recovery. What do you learn in life skills training for women? During sessions in a life skills program, you’ll hone essential skills that you’ll use to build a healthier, happier, and more productive life. Some of the topics that you might cover in our life skills program include:

Participating in a motivation and life skills coaching program can help you be better prepared for life after rehab.

What to Expect from Life Skills Training

Life skills training helps you learn to handle your daily responsibilities. In recovery, you’ll no longer be held back by drug and alcohol use. Instead, with the proper life skills, you’ll be able to manage your daily responsibilities in healthy ways.

Part of this responsibility includes developing a healthy routine. Having a routine helps you stay balanced and on top of your goals while keeping you from going back to old patterns. Your new routine might include activities like attending support meetings, going to therapy, eating well, enjoying physical activities, and going to bed on time. You’ll also learn to wake up at a healthy time to start your productive routine over again.

One important life skill is financial stability. Addiction can make it difficult to maintain employment. However, in recovery, you’ll need to find a steady source of income and manage your money well. We’ll help you learn essential budgeting skills so you can set yourself up for stability. You’ll learn about taking responsibility for your living space and how to keep it clean and organized.

Nutrition and personal hygiene also play a big role in recovery. While addiction can take a physical toll, in recovery you’ll become your healthiest self. Through a life skills program, you’ll rebuild a healthy body and mind that is able to take on life’s challenges. Managing your medications and taking them as directed is also part of life skills training

You’ll also build stronger relationships by controlling your emotions, being more self-aware, engaging in conversation, and communicating effectively.
