A day in inpatient rehab

Home A Day in Treatment

Your recovery journey begins

For most, a stay in rehab begins with a medical detox from drugs or alcohol. Our physicians and nursing staff have extensive experience overseeing detoxification and work to ensure it is as comfortable as possible. The detox process starts with a physical assessment to determine your exact needs, followed by medical management and monitoring that last 24 hours a day until your body is free from most physical withdrawal symptoms. Once you complete detox, you can transition to the next level of care of ongoing treatment of post-acute withdrawal and clinical stabilization.

A look at daily life during treatment

Once the assessment and detox are complete, we will place you in your therapy groups, and our licensed, credentialed therapists will begin your one-on-one counseling. Most days begin at 7 am with meditation and a nutritious breakfast. Next, you’ll attend group therapy sessions and individual therapies, followed by recreation and physical activities.

After that, you’ll have additional group and individual therapy sessions as well as life skills training and engaging educational workshops. Typical days wrap up with a community 12-Step meeting.

We’ll schedule daily sessions and activities on your weekends as well, with time allotted for additional 12-Step meetings and family visits, since we consider the integration of your family into the treatment process is an essential element of success in long-term recovery.
