This is a group open to the community to anyone seeking recovery.

Living in Balance emphasizes skills training through numerous written and group exercises, role-play exercises, relapse prevention sessions, and homework assignments.

The Living in Balance curriculum conveys to clients that they have the ability to achieve and maintain recovery from substance use disorders. LIB exercises and didactic educational sections provide opportunities to point out discrepancies between goals and behaviors and between perceived benefits and consequences of substance use. By pointing out such discrepancies, LIB helps to enhance clients’ motivation and determination towards long-term recovery.

Through these groups, participants will learn:

  • Craving coping skills
  • Refusal skills
  • Assertiveness skills
  • Interpersonal skills
  • Decision-making skills
  • Problem solving skills
  • Strategies to help expand social support networks
  • How to build enduring, drug-free relationships

We ask that you not attend while actively under the influence of a substance out of respect for others seeking recovery.

If you have questions about this group, please call HOPES at (775) 786-4673 and ask to speak with Shawna Silva.
