At the Freedom Treatment Center, men and women who are recovering from addiction begin by learning the basic skills they need to apply other courses and treatments in their life. The learning improvement course is the first step to overcoming an addiction because it provides the foundational tools to work with other treatment techniques and management skills within the program.
The goal of the learning improvement program is teaching the study skills and reading comprehension skills that men and women need to apply other areas of study in the program. Brian Kuehne, a representative of the Freedom Treatment Center, stated, “This is the foundation of our treatment program. This course helps our students understand what learning is all about – which prepares them for the rest of our course lineup, and prepares them for a successful recovery.”
By using a program that teaches learning skills, it is possible for patients in the program to improve in every area of life. If the recovering substance abuser does not know the basics of how to learn, then it is not possible to apply other skills they are expected to learn during their treatment.
Addiction treatment at the Freedom Center teaches many life stills and coping skills that are essential to a long-term recovery from drugs or alcohol. Without setting a firm foundation in the required study skills and reading comprehension skills that are necessary to learn and understand other treatment courses, it is hard to fight the addiction.
Instead of immediately jumping into treatment after getting through the detoxification process, the Freedom Center is now focusing on providing the tools students in recovery need to understand the next step of their recovery. That focus on adult learning is showing positive results in addiction treatment, as noted by Jane Rowley on Academia.edu. By providing a solid foundation in reading comprehension, study skills and the application of those skills in real life, the Freedom Center is making it possible to learn new methods of coping with emotional distress than substance abuse.
It is not possible to learn without understanding how to study and the methods of applying that knowledge. By providing the learning improvement course before other courses and treatment options, the Freedom Treatment Center is making it possible to enjoy a drug-free lifestyle.
The Freedom Treatment Center provides the life skills and methods of management that are necessary to avoid substance abuse for a lifetime. The facility offers a comfortable environment that views recovery as a learning process. Students in the program are learning new skills that make recovery a reality.
