The Seeds skill-development program helps young men recover from substance abuse disorder by offering a unique and dynamic approach to residents that bridges the gap between traditional treatment for alcohol and substance abuse to living a full and sober life in the real world.
By uncovering untapped potential and discovering your aptitudes, our skill-development program will help you build a new life.
Once uncovered, and now confident in the pursuit of a new-found aptitude and potential career path, Seeds will support your skill development through ongoing mentorship and peer-to-peer learning opportunities. Working hand-and-hand with the partner program selected, we will assess strengths and weaknesses in the application of your recently discovered skill set and will help develop the strengths further while nurturing the weaknesses with continued education and training. This ongoing approach to skill-development allows for residents to move at a guided pace that allows for personal comfort while also gradually stretching the comfort zone of the individual, ultimately leading to breakthrough moments where what was once a weakness is now a strength.
