Adopting a New Lifestyle
To obtain life-long sobriety, it is essential that the person learns and adopts an entirely healthy new life-style. Under the direction of our Senior Program Director and other senior managers, our students do exactly that. This is accomplished, in part, by being taught and learn:
- to adopt, new attitudes, behaviors, and values
- to communicate effectively and co-operate with others
- to be responsible and accountable
- patience, tolerance, and “stick to it”
- to be valuable employees and to take pride in performance
- to develop humility, self-control, and excellence in standards
- management, leadership skills, problem solving, and how to handle criticism
- business principles and entrepreneurship
- to better deal with the public
- to go the extra mile and to be givers instead of takers
- deal with changes and improve self-confidence
- to be punctual, polite, reliable, and productive
- to enjoy a wide range of healthy indoor and outdoor activities without any stimulants
- manners and etiquette
- They are exposed to, and come to enjoy, the arts, with attendance at museums, operas, plays, and recitals.
- They watch movies and television shows that are positive, educational, and sometimes adventurous, in nature.
- They receive extensive career training and attend workshops and stimulating lessons.
- They listen to softer music, at moderate volumes.
In short, our students tear down their old destructive ways and develop completely new healthy life-styles.
When they graduate these new ways have become second-nature and automatic.
Adopting a new life-style takes time. However, the change is priceless!
