Learning Educational Life Skills

Rainbow Canyon Retreat’s educational rehabilitation philosophy is based on confronting and locating the many issues and behaviors that brought about the client’s addiction problem and resolving said issues. While clients enter the program as addicts, they become students during the course of their time with us learning educational life skills each day in course. When their time with us is complete they are no longer addicts or alcoholics, they are truly rehabilitated and do not need to wear those labels any longer.

“When I entered Rainbow Canyon Retreat I was a mess. I was so out of it that I didn’t care about anything anymore, including myself. Because I stayed in the program and began to invest myself into what I was learning I have come a long way. After sauna I feel so much better, healthy for the first time in a long time. Working through this rehab is hard, each day is a challenge but I’m finding I like who I am becoming. I am working things out with my family and they are so happy that I have really applied myself these past few months. Graduation is just around the corner for me. I have learned more here in rehab than I ever did in college. I am going to use what I’ve learned to stay sober and apply myself to all aspects of my life when I get home.”

  1. The life skills I learned in my time at Rainbow Canyon Retreat were very helpful and vital to me in my lasting sobriety. My time in the Fresh start program gave me the time and structure I needed to start building a sober life for myself. The staff helped guide me through the books and course material and helped to keep me focused on my ultimate goal of a lasting sobriety.

  2. I am very thankful that I can strive towards improving myself everyday because of this program. I have many goals that I am eager to complete and it is really great.
    If I was the wreck that I was while I was using drugs, I would be going nowhere but into negative trouble, but thanks to this program, this is not the case.

  3. This program gave me back stability and structure. My life was entirely devoid of these two components when I was using. I didn’t care about how I acted, and I didn’t care what others thought about my irrational behavior.
    Without this program, I would still be using drugs, deteriorating my life, and going nowhere but down.
