As part of the Sober College Family of Services, Sober College San Diego understands that the key to long-term sobriety and recovery drug and alcohol addiction is a life lived in balance. What makes Sober College unique is our innovative, comprehensive approach to addiction treatment that treats the whole person, not just their disease. This proven methodology is structured around our Five Core Competencies. We help our clients to develop in these five areas and teach them the skills to maintain long-term sobriety. The end result is that they will not only conquer their addiction, but also recreate themselves in the process.
All of our substance abuse treatment programs, whether it be intensive outpatient, outpatient, academic outpatient, or structured sober living, are centered around our Five Core Competency Model, designed to help our clients achieve long-term sobriety and happy, successful lives:
- Sobriety = an active recovery community An active sober network is essential to maintain long-term sobriety, which is why we help our clients build a support system of sober-minded peers both inside and outside of our community.
- Life Skills = personal and relational life skills Staying sober – not getting sober – is the biggest challenge for many adults in recovery. We teach our clients personal life skills, such as money management, cooking, and laundry as well as relational life skills, like healthy boundary setting, conflict resolution, and self-confidence. By practicing these tools in a supportive environment our clients leave prepared for success.
- Physical Fitness = healthy body & mind Physical health is a vital part of recovery from addiction. We combine fellowship and fitness, creating an environment that cultivates self-esteem, community, and a plan for healthy living that clients can take with them long after they leave our care.
- Productivity = purpose and passion Individual purpose and passion is an important part of long-term sobriety. Clients meet with an academic advisor to map out their goals and educational or vocational plan. Our team is dedicated to helping clients build a life worth staying sober for. Under our guidance, clients receive support academically or with finding and maintaining employment. We can help clients learn study skills and time management, practice interview skills, build their resume, take on-site WSCUC-accredited college courses, receive college application counseling and more.
- Emotional Intelligence = individualized treatment planning In order to achieve long-term sobriety underlying co-occurring mental health disorders need to be addressed. All of our clients work with their counselor to develop a treatment plan designed exclusively for them based on their goals and clinical needs. Plans can include individual therapy, group therapy, psychiatry, and addiction counseling.
