The journey towards a better, happier life started with the decision to get treatment for drug or alcohol addiction. Get to know what to anticipate for a typical day in rehabilitation.
If you're thinking about going into treatment, you're probably curious about what a standard day is like.
Residential inpatient rehabs are very organized and systemized; most have the same activities and therapies. This creates the best condition that will aid their decision to quit drugs, thus reducing the anxiety and hopelessness that the patients might have entertained. The daily activities vary according to the setting of the treatment centre and the amenities that are available.
There are very many treatment options out there but all of them follow a standard framework of sorts.
A typical day in rehab might look like this:
Treatment does not consider sleeping in part of therapy, so expect to wake up early and have a well rounded breakfast.
To help patient start the day on a good note, some rehabs include serious thinking and yoga in their recovery plans.
Treatment and recovery focuses in part on learning new, better habits that will become part of a regular routine once inpatient treatment is completed.
There is usually a crew sitting after breakfast headed by a counsellor or therapist that pays attention on matters connected to the healing procedure, the 12-step plan, dependence and recuperation. Understanding how the people, environment and problems in your life led to the need for alcohol or drugs is an important part of the rehab.
Held in a security of supervised therapeutic surroundings, these daily sessions will aid you to see the patterns in your actions which you can modify or particular triggers to stay away from after the rehab.
The most intense therapy is during the middle of the day. You can start the recovery activities when you are through with your lunch.
These usually include:
Apart from therapy, some centres also bring speakers on board who share their personal stories with substance abuse and recovery thereby providing hope to the addicts currently receiving treatment at the centre. In some cases, the speakers dig into practical matters such as recreating professions post-therapy, or just give inspirational speeches to aid elevate souls.
There are also some supplemental therapies offered, giving a wide variety of options in many rehab centres.
Using music and other related activities for healing
Some rehabs may have swimming pools, or other activities such as soccer, table tennis, or volleyball as part of their physical exercise.
Residents can also opt to spend their free time reading or journaling, while others choose prayer or meditation.
Highly recommended 12 Step programs are available in the evenings. As a means to help with long term sobriety, these meeting are set in an anonymous, safe and comfortable setting to allow for oneness and fellowship to develop. Because they are helped to change their behaviour, they must sleep as early as possible.
They will have enough stamina to participate in the morning programs if they sleep well the night before. BLANK
