What is the supported living program at Cadabams?
Supported living is a program that helps recovering individuals regain their independence and self-confidence. The program is Cadabams’ effort to ensure that recovering individuals are prepared to face the challenges of the world outside the rehabilitation centre. As important as activities aimed at recovery like therapeutic approaches and medical management are, becoming independent in daily life too is as important.
The goal of rehabilitation is reintegration into society. However, just recovery isn't enough to live a contented life. Individuals need social skills, self-confidence, a sense of independence, and more to live a contented life. While traditional recovery approaches help in symptomatic relief and suppressing the disorder, individuals also need to be prepared for discharge from the rehabilitation centre, and the daily rigors of daily life. This is where the supported living program at Cadabams helps.
