Communication and Perception Course
The Communication and Perception Course at Freedom Treatment Center is vital to breaking past impulsive behaviors, and teaches the individual how to overcome living in the past. The use of drugs can cause a person’s perception of reality to become warped to a greater or lesser degree. The course is carefully crafted to bring the person fully back into true reality with their current environment, while also restoring their perceptions of the real world.
This enables the individual to regain self-control, provides an enhanced ability to perceive the environment, and hones imperative skills in identifying and solving life’s problems. Upon completion of this course, the person is able to see the world as it truly exists, which is an essential tool of relieving guilt, depression and leaving addiction far behind.

Am I existing in the present or reacting to things from my past?
Many times a substance abuser in early recovery is told they just need to deal with “life on life’s terms”. Unfortunately, dealing with the present is almost impossible when you are still unconsciously reacting to things from the past. Since we are about avoiding uncomfortable feelings, things and situations, when faced with trauma or distress we can often just “bury it” and try not to think about it again. Sometimes these things become so buried we are no longer aware that they exist.
But they do exist for a person early in recovery who hasn’t faced them. Instead of dealing with the present, we are reacting to a thousand unresolved past issues. Like mental image pictures these things build up over time, and we are no longer able to face life without reacting like a pinball to its elements. We have become a slave to the memories of our past and we don’t even know it.
Ask any alcoholic who drives by his old favorite bar, or a heroin addict who drives through a bad drug neighborhood. Their thoughts begin to race, their heart begins to quicken. They are no longer able to see things objectively; they are reacting to a hundred similar situations that occurred in the past. And it isn’t just drug situations that still affect us. A woman, who was victimized at an early age is often affected so deeply that she is unable to have healthy relationships today.
The Communications and Perceptions Course is actually two different parts
- A much higher level of the first Communications Course, in order to raise our ability to confront, communicate and control more effectively.
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy exercises designed to free us up from the past and enable us to actually deal with the present with as little past effect as possible.
If we are able to see the present as it truly is, instead of a distorted image brought on by past events, and we have an increased ability to confront uncomfortable things, feelings and situations, only then are we better able to “deal with life and life’s terms”.
We are no longer a slave to the past. We are dealing in the present.
