One of the most important things that you will learn throughout addiction recovery is the necessary life skills and coping skills that are needed to remain sober after detox. Addiction has been attributed to poor coping skills and a genetic predisposition to addiction. Once you are taught proper life skills and coping skills, you are one step closer to living a sober life.
Some life skills that are helpful in addiction recovery are: communication, healthy coping skills, and the ability to face problems head on.
-Communication is important because you have to learn how to express yourself and your feelings in a healthy way. You also have to learn how to talk about any cravings or urges with your loved ones or your counselor.
-Healthy coping skills are essential to remaining sober because it is important to process and accept life stressors in a healthy way. Life goes on and the sooner that we are able to deal with whatever comes our way, the sooner we can put our addiction behind us and move forward.
-Dealing with problems head on is also important because running away and hiding is no longer acceptable. Learning ways to deal with hardships positively is what will make you successful at beating your addiction.
