Successful sobriety depends on learning and developing healthy life skills. Transitional living is the perfect time for those in recovery to learn the necessary tools and strategies they will need to continue to overcome addiction and to work toward a healthy future. The Texas House offers a safe and comfortable environment for residents to learn about themselves as they change and grow through the recovery process.
Most importantly, life skills education can help those in recovery to avoid relapse and to improve their overall quality of life.
Why Life Skills Education is Important
Life skills education includes vital skills such as:
- Career help and preparing to reenter the workforce
- Working to build strong friendships
- Understanding emotional, mental, and physical health
- Building a stable living environment
- Learning effective coping strategies
- Preparing to deal with stress or strong emotions
- Gaining improved decision making skills
- Understanding how to make and achieve goals
- Building a support network
These skills are the essential tools that those in recovery will need when they leave the structured transitional living environment and return home. Having the tools they need to overcome challenges will be vital to a successful recovery journey.
