Life Skills & Career Development

Substance abuse and mental health issues in young adults can hinder their development in other areas. For instance, these issues can create struggles in things like social skills, career development, and activities of daily living. While therapeutic treatment is vital to recovery, life skills and career development are also critical to obtaining a high quality of life. For this reason, Launch Centers of Los Angeles, CA, offers life skills and career development for young adults in recovery from addiction and mental health disorders.

Life Skills Training & Assistance

Treatment at Launch Centers involves a variety of therapies that help individuals reclaim, rediscover, and reconstruct their lives. For many, life skills are developed throughout the course of adolescent and young adult years to help adapt to change. However, individuals who suffer from substance abuse or mental health disorders at a young age either miss out on the opportunity to develop these skills or have lost the ability to self-manage. For young adults, recovery from substance abuse and mental health disorders is not only about staying sober, but developing the necessary skills to gain independence as an adult.

Launch Centers’ life skills program focuses on the needs of young adult emotional growth backed by responsibility. In this, individuals learn skills such as time management, problem solving, and how to manage all components of their mental and physical health beyond the scope of treatment in a sober and productive manner.

Our life skills assistance includes the following:

  • Help with housing
  • Nutrition planning

Education & Career Development

Launch Centers in Los Angeles also provides individuals education and career development to adopt new skills to set them up for a successful future. Active addiction and untreated mental health disorders can create limited employment opportunities, stymie college and education advancement, and prevent individuals from learning how to gainfully advance their life with these skills. 

Sobriety and recovering from your mental health issue can seem overwhelming, however, preventing relapse is a significant priority. In early recovery it is important to keep stressors at a minimum. Finding employment and going back to school can also seem frustrating and something nearly impossible to do without assistance. In addition to these barriers, those who are in early recovery can often lack information on how to find a job, important interview skills, and low self-esteem can also get in the way of maintaining employment.

Identifying Strengths

Research indicates that those who undergo treatment for alcohol and other drug abuse largely have poor work histories and low employment rates, regardless of their education. Relapse rates for individuals in recovery increase when unemployment remains a constant in their lives. Our educational and career development program helps young adults identify strengths, weaknesses, and develop the skills needed to find a job related to their interests and goals, or transition back into schooling with guidance and assistance.

  • Resume/Cover Letter development

  • Conner H.

    Launch Centers Treatment was a major help to me. The therapists and staff genuinely cared about me and truly helped me to make a plan for my future. My personal therapists helped me to discover where some of my deeper issues came from. All of the staff worked tirelessly with me to talk through my issues, or just about life, and offered realistic solutions to my current problems and situation. All of the staff went above and beyond and advocated relentlessly for me.

  • Nicole Y.

    This place changed my life! I’ve had good laughs, good cries, shared a lot of heart to heart moments and grew a loving bond with everyone at Launch Centers. I will always be grateful! I really do miss it time to time. I highly recommend Launch Centers!

  • Jenna S.

    Launch changed our lives. Our family had been battling for years to breakthrough to our brother. No amount of rehab or detox had made a difference. He was listless, lifeless and helpless. We feared for his life everyday. The spirit of, repetition in, core values, appreciation of life and dignity and respect that we found through Launch are unparalleled. I can say with full confidence that we never would have seen my “real” brother again if not for this truly magical combination. We were and still are especially grateful for his over-the-top therapist. Her commitment to his privacy and success coupled with her unwavering contact with any and all of us is what bridged our 3,000 mile separation from him.
