I just completed 4 of my objectives. It was a long, sometimes frustrating process but I believe I got a lot out of it. I was able to look at areas of my life that I had not looked at in a long time. I feel a new awareness and focus on my life and surroundings. I also learned new patience with myself and others.
The life training and skills our clients learn during their rehabilitation process serve them long after they complete and leave Sunshine Summit Lodge. These lessons are aimed at building up the recovering person’s ability to identify both positive and negative attributes in themselves and others. Clients also work on their communication skills, ability to recognize and control their emotions as well as strengthen their ability to effectively handle difficult situations should they arise in the future (i.e. drug relapse prevention techniques).
