What Is The Daring Way™?

The Daring Way™ is an experiential curriculum that was developed based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. Each of the program’s 12 modules works in harmony to assist clients as they address maladaptive patterns of behavior associated with shame and vulnerability. Such emotions can create barriers and riffs in a person’s life and relationships, but The Daring Way™ invites clients to explore topics such as shame, worthiness, vulnerability, and courage to challenge those negative behaviors, thoughts, and perspectives.

The primary focus of The Daring Way™ is to use the experiential methodology of the program to develop shame resilience skills and daily practices that ultimately transform the way clients live their lives.

Purpose of Daring Way™  in Addiction Treatment

Individuals suffering from addiction often struggle with feelings of shame, guilt, worthlessness, and powerlessness. In fact, our experience in providing treatment has shown us that insurmountable shame and the fear of being real and vulnerable are the primary perpetrators of use and relapse. The Daring Way™ invites these individuals to live bravely, embrace their vulnerability, and develop empathy and self-compassion. As a result, clients are able to embrace their vulnerability and overcome those feelings of shame to cultivate a resilient spirit that allows them to live fully.

How We Use the Daring Way™ Curriculum at Nova

Nova Recovery Center has three certified Daring Way™ facilitators on staff. We work through all 12 modules of the program in our long-term rehab program (one module each week) to specifically address how negative behavior patterns are connected to clients’ use and relapse patterns and how to address the shame of their disease.

The philosophy at Nova is based on helping clients look at their experiences differently and change their perspective so they can be more resilient in their journey forward. Our Clinical Director explains it best:

“The analogy that works for most people is carrying a stack of books. We have all miscalculated the arrangement of a stack of books, and once we start carrying them we realize that this arrangement is not working for us. Most times we will stop and rearrange the books in an order that works better, is more manageable, and allows us to get to our destination easier. It is the exact same assortment of books, we just changed the way we dealt with it. It is the same with our emotional load. We aren’t erasing any parts of life or events. That is impossible. But we can help them find a new way to look at and carry those burdens. We can help them find a new perspective—a different arrangement of the books.”

We understand that all clients have different life experiences, experience recovery differently, and are reached in different ways. Our Daring Way™ facilitators strive to find mediums that can speak to all clients. We use multiple approaches during drug rehab, including:

  • Experiential exercises
  • Associated art groups
  • Videos
  • Educational materials

We also incorporate components of the Daring Way™ model into our Family Program, particularly the work on defense mechanisms and their effect on communication.

At Nova Recovery Center, we are willing to find a way to help each client and family find their truth and give themselves permission to walk the road of recovery with their whole heart.
