There’s virtually no aspect of life that addiction doesn’t attack in one way or another.
(PRWEB) February 06, 2015
In its latest blog post, Best Drug Rehabilitation, which offers treatment programs and believes that having family close by during a stay in rehab can make a big difference in whether or not the process is successful, is highlighting that communication skills are essential to a successful rehabilitation experience -- and to a successful life in general.
“People who suffer from addiction to drugs, alcohol or commonly both do more than just put their health at risk," commented Best Drug Rehabilitation’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “They also severely damage their finances, their relationships, their ability to stay gainfully employed, and the list goes on. There’s virtually no aspect of life that addiction doesn’t attack in one way or another. It’s my hope that this latest blog post will shed some light on how communication skills are vital to a successful rehab experience, which is one that lasts well beyond graduation and sobriety.”
According to the Best Drug Rehabilitation blog post, addicts often experience the following communication-related obstacles and problems:
- Issues related to conflict resolution
- Communication skills deficits
- Difficulty maintaining boundaries
- Poor social skills development
- Social anxiety and social isolation
- Difficulty with problem solving
- Inability to communicate personal needs and feelings
- Difficulty setting and following boundaries
- Difficulty getting along with others in general
On the positive side, however, the blog post also highlights 5 skills that addicts can develop – advisably with guidance and support from trained and experienced addictions professionals – in order to improve their communication ability, and put themselves on a path leading towards lasting sobriety:
1. Develop listening skills
2. Learn to hear yourself
3. Take yourself out of the center
4. Learn to compromise
5. Respond with honesty and integrity
