At Sovereign Health, we offer specialized mental health, substance abuse and dual diagnosis disorder treatment tailor-made for the unique issues of each patient. Our comprehensive programs begin at admission, where our expert staff conduct a thorough assessment for any potential co-occurring conditions in order to create an accurate diagnosis so that each patient gets the right treatment.
If you have become involved with drug and/or alcohol abuse, you may find that you’ve fallen behind in your educational goals. Addiction might be affecting your willingness and capacity to learn and retain information taking a large toll on your overall education while you’re using or recovering from drug use.
The consequences of drug use include short-term memory loss and a shorter attention span. Many users will often end up falling behind in class and may drop out all together. Interestingly, most chemically dependent people are highly adaptable, with a good capacity for learning and change. But when they fail to meet educational goals they lose self esteem because they know they can do better.
Through our educational program, we directly address the educational needs of people recovering from alcohol or drug addiction. Our EDU program is an educational program developed in conjunction with Saddleback College in Mission Viejo, Calif. Program participants enroll at an accredited college such as Saddleback and work towards one of several goals: starting to work towards a major, graduating high school or receiving a GED.
By enrolling in the EDU program, you (or your friend or relative) can begin a life journey you may not have believed possible in the recent past. Your self-esteem gets a boost and the healing process is enhanced as you and your peers support and challenge each other while you move in similar directions.
Those who enroll in the EDU program are provided with books and learning materials, as well as transportation to classes. After completion of classes, participants may continue on at Saddleback or transfer units to another college.
