SAN DIEGO - Dec. 6, 2019 - PRLog -- Most rehabs in California utilize tons of treatment modalities, like cognitive behavioral therapy, medication, and the integration of 12 step programs that highly enhance the community. Of course, when people are recovering from substance use disorders, they frequently feel very alone and therefore tend to benefit greatly from these community-based therapies, like Alcoholics Anonymous.

However, recognition of education has long gone unnoticed by psychiatric treatment. By equipping its patients with the empowering tool of knowledge and credentials, Healthy Life Recovery of San Diego, California, is making education one of its four main pillars in its program.

Jon Larkin, a leading employee of the clinical department of Healthy Life Recovery (, gave an applauding statement of its educational program: "Our educational program is both innovative and engaging while reinforcing personal sovereignty and agency among our clients. Clients learn how to increase awareness and the ability to tolerate distress in life. Skills-based groups focus on mindfulness and claiming emotions as a means of showing mastery. Clients learn about relapse prevention skills, spirituality, life skills, and family systems. Our approach to education is comprehensive and focused on acquiring and solidifying skills that will ensure long term sobriety."

Attaining an education while in sobriety can be extremely stressful, as many people know. Clients are taught coping skills, as mentioned above, to manage this stress and achieve the ultimate success to catapult them forward.

Recovering from addiction involves building an entirely new life - one that often requires a new career path, or merely the beginning of one. Healthy life recovery states on their website that their goal is to "have all of [their] patients in school and/or employed upon program graduation."

This supported preparation, of course, sets clients up with the necessary income or tools required to support themselves moving forward.

However, guaranteeing that clients graduate from this treatment center with education or a stable career path is not only about financial support, but also about the confidence it instills in recovering addicts and alcoholics. Many addicts and alcoholics come to rehab programs broken, with their lives in shambles. Equipping these patients with education is both empowering and a supporting factor in reaching new levels in sobriety and life.
