Helping with Substance Abuse Recovery
Life Design uses a 12-step model to help clients with addiction issues or other destructive behavior patterns. Research shows that it is vital for a person in recovery to replace addictive behaviors with something more meaningful in their lives. Nature and experiential activities are used as a medium to allow clients to connect with a power greater than themselves. These practices along with life skills, animal care, and self-discovery create powerful and meaningful experiences in the lives of these young adults. This in turn helps to create a foundation in recovery. Clients are encouraged to take 100% responsibility for their actions while practicing rigorous honesty. This allows them to live their values, and walk with integrity through their lives. During their stay they are also guided to develop a passion or hobby that inspires them to dream and create.
Who we are
Life Designs is a therapeutic program that mentors and supports young men and women with substance abuse issues that are struggling to transition into adulthood. This transition is often a confusing and challenging process without the compounded complications of drugs and alcohol. It is a time developmentally where young people re-evaluate their values and beliefs as they begin to define themselves and their path in life. Our commitment at Life Designs is “Empowering Young Adults.” We believe every moment is an opportunity to teach a lesson. Our staff uses an experiential training model to make recovery, work, community, and nature their classroom.
