Learn More About How We Can Help
If you want to get help, we want you
to understand our approach and
goals for your recovery.
Some students have a history of social functioning, educational and vocational skills, and positive family ties, but their substance abuse has eroded this prosocial lifestyle. For them, recovery involves rehabilitation, relearning, or re-establishing their capacity to sustain positive learning, as well as regaining physical and emotional health.
Other students have never acquired functional lifestyles. Their substance abuse is embedded in a larger picture of psychological and social deficits in education, employment, and social skills. Often they are antisocial or lack the motivation or capacity to pursue the values of right living. Oftentimes their experience in a therapy center is their first exposure to orderly living.
However, the goals of recovery remain the same for all students: to learn or relearn how to live drug-free positive lifestyles.
Our way of recovery involves changing how students perceive themselves. We believe that changes in lifestyle and identity are related. Those who acquire lifestyle changes and experience the healing of self-efficacy resulting from these changes eventually come to perceive themselves differently. This is a distinctive approach in the use of peer community models to pursue these goals.
Being familiar with key recovery terms will make your journey ahead easier to navigate.
