The purpose of a recovery program like Adult & Teen Challenge USA is to overcome and triumph over your drug or alcohol addiction and to find your true identity in Christ. As part of our recovery programs, students learn important life skills that give them a healthier outlet for handling stress and life’s problems instead of turning to drugs and other substances. There are a number of benefits to finding constructive outlets during your recovery program.
Refocus Your Mind
To break free from addiction, you have to retrain and refocus your mind to look to positive habits instead of negative habits. Replacing a negative habit with a positive and constructive one can have significant positive effects on how your mind processes situations. Constructive habits and outlets that are focused on better health and well-being train your mind to focus on getting better instead of everything that is going wrong.
Develop Beneficial Skills
Our program isn’t designed solely to help you break free from drug and alcohol addiction. Many of our centers across the country also have programs in place to learn life and trade skills to ensure your life is on a better track when you complete the recovery program. Our students learn laundry and housekeeping skills as well as trades like carpentry and more. By replacing destructive drug and alcohol habits with skills that will help in life, our students have a better chance of success after recovery from addiction.
A Positive Outlet for Stress
Many people develop drug and alcohol addictions due to an inability to handle life’s struggles in a healthy manner. By learning healthy and constructive habits, our students create a positive outlet for life’s stresses and struggles. Instead of resorting to destructive addictions, they have the tools necessary to overcome the stress and continue a healthier path of life free from addiction.
