Life Skills In Action
Activities of daily living and coping skills
Addiction recovery is far more than an individual simply coming off of drugs and alcohol. Recovery is a process of learning how to live effectively as an individual, as well as within social, and family units. While lifelong participation in 12 step programs and therapy or support groups assists individuals with maintaining focus on the practical aspects of their sobriety, the rest of the long-term lifestyle changes are left up to the initiative of the individual.
The more life skills that you learn, the more you’ll want. Sure, at first, meeting those activities of daily living can be an adjustment but afterwards, you’re ready to keep on progressing!
Day to day implementation of ADLs and coping skills varies widely person to person.
