Why Online Learning for Addictions?
Recognizing that different clients learn differently, seeing the continuing growth in the use of technology, and tremendous acceptance of online learning, Brad decided to re-tool his programs for an online teaching approach.
Not everyone needs residential treatment, and many don’t do well in those environments. The cost of private residential treatment programs is significant. If a person is required to pay for their own treatment, it is often an obstacle. In addition, the thought of spending 30, 60 or 90 days away from family, friends and other support creates psychological barriers and is not seen as a viable option.
This group of programs gives those struggling with addiction and addiction related issues the opportunity to take advantage of the material offered in our facility without the high cost and need to be away from home.
All our courses are spaced learning with modules delivered in one-week intervals, so participants have time to put the concepts and tools into practice before moving on.
Online learning gives people control over their recovery and well-being which fosters resiliency and builds self-esteem.
