|Life Skills||At the James A. Casey House we feel that one of the most important aspects of a person’s recovery is the ability to take care of themselves when they leave a facility. If a man in early recovery can’t cook his own food, or stick to a budget, then they will slip back into old habits which will eventually lead to their addiction. To that end, we offer life skill classes on a wide variety of topics that cover everything from the simple to the complex, from the remarkable to the mundane. In addition to the 24/7 life skills program that comes from sharing an apartment, clients are taught everything from how to do their own laundry, to managing anger and aggressive behavior.||Luzerne||Casey House||Casey House|
