lifeROCs program elements
Evidence Based lessons
Evidence based treatment is an approach that utilizes the current understanding of brain physiology and behavioral modification. Evidence based treatment focuses on rational approach to substance abuse treatment. The goal of Evidence Based Treatment is the same as other treatment options, mainly elimination of bad or risky behaviors in favor of behaviors that have predictably more favorable outcomes.
Principle Based lessons
Some people seeking recovery from addiction find the 12 steps of recovery simple, others find those steps complex. The Principle Based Course is an effort to simplify the meaning of the 12 steps for those who may be having difficulty.
These “Principles” are incorporated into our daily lives as we recover from addiction. Employing each of these principles and associated behaviors will allow us to rebuild our lives.
Christ Based Faith
Addiction causes us to engage in self destructive and self-defeating behavior. Addiction destroys relationships with the people we ought to care about and fractures our relationship with God if we ever had one. Eventually addiction will take our very life or we will wish it had.
The good news is that there is an answer – there is a way out – recovery is available. Jesus Christ is still in the business of healing and transforming lives. There is a simple way of recovery that has been documented to work for millions. We call it the Twelve Truths. These Truths were not invented by mortal human beings. If they were, they would have little value because neither science nor medicine has ever come up with a solution to addiction.
Guided Meditation and Relaxation
Meditation is effective because it rewires critical pathways in the brain. In one study, people who meditated for approximately 30 minutes daily for 8 weeks showed an increase in gray matter in the parts of the brain associated with learning, memory, self-awareness and introspection. In addition, brain imaging revealed that participants also showed a decrease in gray matter in areas linked to anxiety and stress.
By changing how their brain processes self-awareness, introspection, anxiety, and stress, addicts can reasonably evaluate everyday situations, and react to them more appropriately – without the help of drugs or alcohol. Meditation’s positive effect on stress and anxiety is especially important because both are frequent triggers for relapse.
Journaling, or keeping a regular record of experiences and feelings, especially as they relate to your recovery, can be a helpful tool to advance your healing process. For example, a journal can be used to record your recovery-related struggles and accomplishments or to identify – and work through – difficult emotions. It also helps to hold you accountable for your decisions and actions and helps you invest in your own self-discovery.
Journaling is a type of expressive writing, and lifeROCs’ program helps you step by step until you are journaling on your own.
lifeROCs has hand-picked assembled one of the largest collection of addiction education articles on the web.
Education about substance abuse is an important part of helping individuals understand the many aspects of this topic. This information can include factual data about what substance abuse is; warning signs of addiction; information about how alcohol and specific drugs affect the mind and body; the consequences that addiction can have on one’s physical and mental health, family, relationships, and other areas of functioning; and how and why substances are abused.
If that’s not enough, lifeROCs content – lessons, articles and meditations, and other content – are added routinely so the program NEVER goes stale.
