Interpersonal Skills You’ll Gain in Treatment

woman discusses interpersonal skills with counselor

Recovery is about restoring the mind, body and spirit. In a loving, compassionate space, you’ll have the time you need to work through deep-rooted issues in both a 1-on-1 setting with a counselor who truly cares about your well being, and also in group sessions where you can get ot know others. When we talk about addiction recovery, the primary focus tends to be on the healing that occurs – but there are truly so many skills you gain in recovery, too. If you’re about to embark on the courageous journey to sobriety, you’ll find that not only do you begin to see the real “you” much clearer than before, but you’ll also be able to recognize just how meaningful connections are. A study published in the journal Addictive Disorders & Their Treatment emphasized just how broken we can feel when we’ve experienced trauma, neglect, abuse and other incredibly stressful events in our lives. All too often, we experience so much pain that we wish to draw within ourselves – to hide away from others and mask the pain with substance abuse. Part of the healing process in addiction recovery is restoring that ability to connect with others by building hope that real connection does exist – you just have to have an open heart and mind.
