Communication Skills

Addicted individuals commonly struggle with feelings of anxiety, anger, frustration, loneliness, grief, and depression. These emotions could be the reason they began drinking or using drugs in the first place, or they may arise as a result of chemical dependency. In many cases, this overwhelming negativity seeps into personal interactions, rendering women unable to connect and express themselves in healthy ways.

No matter what type of emotional and communicative barriers you face, Canyon Crossing Recovery’s intensive outpatient therapy and supportive transitional living programs help you uncover the root of your issues, manage negative emotions, and achieve the peace and well-being you’ve been longing for. Dealing with complex and prolonged psychological and emotional issues gives women the ability to build bridges rather than barriers in their personal relationships.

Developing Skills for Communication

At Canyon Crossing, we help clients build communication skills through a variety of program features:

  • Therapy. In individual and group therapy settings, clients have a chance to explore destructive communication behaviors like aggressiveness, passive-aggressiveness, mistrust, criticism, guilt, selfishness, and disrespect. We teach them positive communication alternatives, including affirmation, compromise, trust, acceptance, respect, attentive listening, and conflict resolution.
  • Ropes courses & wilderness therapy. Working in groups to achieve a common goal, our ropes courses and outdoor therapy opportunities teach women to take risks, break down emotional barriers, and build trust. These activities also reveal their inner strength, which allows them to overcome the fears and patterns that fostered chemical dependency.
  • Sober living communities. Our transitional living program provides an opportunity for clients to work, play, and live in community with one another. During this community-living experience, women are tested with real-world relationship problems and are trained to navigate conflict, recognize healthy and unhealthy boundaries, and prepare themselves to live on their own at a later date.

Developing Skills for Communication

At Canyon Crossing Recovery, we are teaching women to hold their heads high, live life on their terms, and walk the path of integrity and grace. Much of addiction recovery has to do with restoring relationships and modifying negative communication styles. Our credentialed addiction specialists help women deal with their emotions so that past trauma and addiction-related baggage don’t influence future communication skills.
