The program is designed to encourage and guide residents to find a productive, healthy and balanced lifestyle, something that often eludes a recovering person.
Those residents who do not have some form of employment or study are assisted with career guidance and are encouraged to fulfill volunteer positions within the Wings Of Inspiration NPO umbrella.
Financial management, life skills and interpersonal relationship development form an important part of the process.
The program expects participation & includes:
Addiction affects every area of a person’s life, which is why alcoholics and addicts need to establish and maintain a healthy lifestyle after the initial detox and primary care process has been completed.
Wings Sober Home offers people a chance to establish and build a new lifestyle combined with self-awareness and a deeper sense of responsibility. The program provides guidance on establishing a lifestyle, which is conducive to a sustained and successful recovery. It facilitates greater education, goal setting and lifestyle change in each client.
Each house member is equipped with the tools to cope with the challenges of real life without resorting to their addictions. Relapse prevention forms a key element of the treatment program. Here we help clients identify and prepare for risk situations that could threaten their recovery.
Emphasis is placed on building the self-confidence and self-worth that is required to lead a healthy and independent life. The treatment style is less intensive than in primary care, allowing clients to start interacting with their communities as they gradually transition from institutional living to everyday life.
Clients are also encouraged to actively work on relationships and to further engage in a culture of recovery and form a long lasting support structure. This gradual reintegration into a better way of living means that the individuals who undergo secondary & tertiary treatment are better able to deal with the hardships that will inevitably come up when they return to their lives without turning to alcohol or drugs as a coping mechanism.
We strongly encourage our clients to participate in several sport and social activities.
