5-Actions Program™ Community Training: The Power to Create – 6/12
June 12 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm MDT
You are more than your addictions, a lot more. A common pitfall of most treatment programs is that they focus too much on addressing the problem of addiction, and miss opportunities to help you understand how to use your precious life energy to create what you are most meant to do with your life. In this training we’ll explore the power to create anything, and how you can use it to become the best version of yourself possible.
- How problem solving and creating differ
- The process of creating anything
- Why engaging in creative endeavors is the best relapse prevention program
- How the 5-Actions Program™ can help you engage your creative energy
