LSA Recovery Team

LifeSkills Authorities' approach to long-term and lasting recovery incorporates very comprehensive solutions.  We recognize and appreciate the committment and dedication needed to complete Primary Treatment and Extended Care (if recommended) programs.  Many can do very well in stable and safe settings created by their treatment facility.  However, it must be noted that countless numbers of afflicted individuals complete Residential and Outpatient Treatment programs with the intent to stay abstinent and continue to make positive changes.  The reality is the majority of them struggle upon returing home, for a variety of factors, and this leads to relapse, and even death. That is the unfortunate reality.

At LSA, we are focused on changing the horrific reality that exists...struggle, misery, broken families, and death due to relapse.  We recognize that true recovery must involve a postive acclimation to a life outside of the hospital or treatment setting.  LSA has developed a very unique and comprehensive solution to help addicted and/or mentally-ill individuals who sincerely want long-term recovery to become their reality.  As detailed in the LSA Recovery Coaching Advantage, our 52-week customized program contains a variety of key factors that will help afflicted clients not just stay abstinent, but thrive in the "Real World."

We believe that, to truly recover, a multi-disciplinary team approach targeting many areas of the clients' life and operating in the "Real World", with completely open transparent communication is a key component to foster change and create long-term recovery.  This is not a controvesial!  But, for whatever reason, nobody has created a Recovery Coaching program with the detail needed to create lasting recovery until now. LSA's Recovery Care Coaching and Executive Recovery Coaching allow afflicted clients to return to their home, career, and life outside of the treatment setting with an extraordinary level of support.  That high level of support is created by assembling a customized LSA Recovery Team and is one of the reasons a Fortune 100 Senior Executive calls our program, "A guardian angel for anyone suffering from addiction or related issues."
