How Do We Start

When considering addiction treatment program, you may wonder what you can expect during a standard day in rehab. There are many types of drug abuse treatments program out there but the best follows standard framework of therapy.

Our residential inpatient treatment centers are very structured and organized with similar activities and therapies in most centers.

These minimize stress and any uncertainty among addicts and it’s the safest and most supportive environment for individual’s recovery and depending on the setting and the amenities offered, daily activities may vary.

Here is an example of what a typical day in treatment might look like:

Healthy Breakfast and Early Meetings in the Morning

Sleeping in is not part of the program, so expect to rise early in the morning to enjoy a healthy breakfast.

Some programs offer morning classes such as yoga and meditation to help you begin the day in a relaxed state of mind.

These daily meetings take place in the safety of a controlled therapeutic environment. It helps you to recognize patterns of behavior you can change and other certain triggers to avoid post-treatment.

Daily Afternoons Therapy

The middle of the day provides the most intensive treatment. After a healthy lunch, it is typical to begin a series of therapeutic sessions.

These Often Include:

  • Individual behavioral therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is one of the most effective methods we use in our centers and CBT hones in on your behavioral responses to specific triggers.

Once identified the therapist will guide you towards your new healthier ways to overcome those triggers.

We offer a one-on-one therapy session, this provide a safe environment for you to feel free to open up and share your fears and concerns.

Allowing the therapist to provide tools and alternative behavioral responses. That will help to term the sources of your anxiety.

  • Group Therapy

Participating in this group therapy provides certain camaraderie as all participants have experienced the struggles with addiction.

It can be very beneficial for participants to share their personal stories with one another as it helps them heal emotionally. And it allows the members to develop a sense of fellowship during the week's in rehab as the trust grows.

They become more open in their sessions. This help them develop a sincere compassion and understanding on other's battles.

Our treatment centers provide specialized therapy sessions. These could be good for anger management, stress management or grief counseling.
