Typical Day

Typical Day in Our Residential Treatment Program

The drug and alcohol treatment program is centered around the 12-step model of recovery and uses a holistic approach to make sure the whole person is treated instead of focusing on just his or her symptoms. Each day starts with early morning meditation, followed by a variety of different groups that focus on issues such as relapse prevention and recovery skills. In the residential treatment program, relapse prevention groups are held every day in the morning for an hour and are followed by another hour-long group. After lunch, clients attend small groups and will then engage in one of our experiential programs. At the end of the day, after dinner, two 12-step groups are held to close out the evening.  Clients will have free time every evening until room curfew at 11pm.

Clients participate in daily educational and therapeutic activities that may include:

  • Educational lectures
  • Group and individual therapy sessions
  • On-site and off-site 12-step meetings
  • Recreational activities
