About the Life Skills Training Program at Bayview Recovery
An individual can fall prey to addiction if the challenges they face in their life exceed their ability to cope with them. As a result, they may begin to use drugs and alcohol to relieve their excess anger, stress, frustration and fear. They often know of no other healthier means of dealing with it. Individuals may have strong skills in some areas of their life but weaker ones in others which still leave them vulnerable. Substances become the way they deal with these short-comings. A life skills training program can change that.
Once an individual begins using drugs and alcohol on a regular basis, their dependency can start to erode their other coping skills, including their ability to provide themselves with adequate self-care. This can create a vicious cycle where people feel increasingly unable to handle the demands of everyday life, use more drugs and create more problems with which they must deal. The only way to end their reliance on drugs and alcohol and rebuild healthy life skills is in a professional rehab program like Bayview Recovery.
