In considering the many aspects of life that suffer during active alcoholism and addiction, life skills are an important aspect that are often neglected. While this term can seem a bit broad, life skills can be defined as any psychological, social, or interpersonal skill that is important.
The fact that many of these skills must be relearned, or even taught from scratch, can be one of the most overwhelming aspects of recovery, and therefore has become one of the key focuses of Arbor Extended Care.
