Many women with substance dependency issues growing up in dysfunctional households, and as a direct result, their daily functioning and interactions with others are impaired. This impairment promotes feelings of alienation and isolation leading to a poor quality of life and potential chemical dependency. Likewise, addicted women may not have developed basic life skills, such as adequate communication, self-care, and personal responsibility (by way of finance, etc.). After choosing a life of sobriety, many women will experience problems with basic living. This does not mean they are incapable or maladjusted – it simply means that they lack experience. We provide them with the experience they need to live happily and successfully by offering life and social skills group.
Life and Social Skills Group at Willow Place for Women
The Life and Social Skills group is devoted to assisting women in early recovery with improved social and basic living skills, utilizing assessments, didactic and therapeutic interventions. Women are taught many essential components of daily living and personal responsibility; communication skills, problem-solving, budgeting, and preparing resumes to name a few. They get to practice and develop skills in a safe and supportive environment in order to generalize to other settings.
