Brett Lavender Reveals the Missing Component to Success After Recovery… Verbal & Non-Verbal Communication
Whether a patient is entering a recovery program for the first time or has relapsed, communication - both verbal and non-verbal is vital to a successful outcome. Miscommunication, hurt feelings, and stress from personal and professional relationships, unfortunately feed substance abuse and addiction.
Avoid the pitfalls of relapse…
Patients often feel beaten down, isolated or unsuccessful in various areas of their life. Unfortunately, poor communication skills contribute to these feelings. However, as communication skills improve, patients are empowered to better understand their world and learn to talk through problems - not internalize negativity.
Communication plays a vital role in developing and building coping and life skills. Patients learn the impact of their words and nonverbal cues on others, particularly people they love as well as how those same issues affect the way others respond to them.
Brett’s program was created and developed through his own personal life experiences dealing with loss, trauma and yes… struggle with addiction.
Patients completing Brett’s program often see enormous benefits, such as repaired relationships, as well as having new, positive people enter into their lives. Self-esteem builds as they feel more confident in engaging with others.
Conversations deepen, and real connections that matter are experienced, for the first time in a long time… if ever. This helps to maintain strength against relapse, as they no longer retreat to drugs or alcohol in isolation.
