Life SkillsLife skills at addiction rehab are courses formulated to enable patients to develop useful skills in their lifestyles.  They also become more in charge after coping skills training on how to improve their lives. Application of life skills minimizes life’s confusion that results in relapse.  Also, Life Skills courses are elective groups and can include many different life skills.

Integrity and the Code of Honor is a course that teaches patients a better comprehension of respect and honesty. They do this by understanding past experiences that depict the value of honesty and respect in their lives and learn to implement this information in real-life circumstances.  Also, Family Education is a Life Skills course which deals with the relevance of trust, devotion, and communication in a family’s success. This course provides awareness of sex and reproduction including guidance on contraception, conception, pregnancy, venereal diseases, and raising children. It also assists the participants to apply this information better in their lives.

Life Skills Provides GED Preparation for Patients

Many individuals who have an alcohol or drug addiction drop out of school before graduating. The GED or General Equivalency Diploma is a certificate which means that a person has high school-level academic skills. Patients take a group of tests, and when passed, they receive the certification of their GED.

Specifically, addiction rehab centers that provide this course prepare patients for the development test.  This test assesses competency in social studies, mathematics, reading, science, and writing.  As a result, individuals achieve academic skills equal to the American high school level. Eventually, after completing their treatment programs in rehab, patients are ready to do job searches with this beneficial certification.
