What is Life Like in a Residential Treatment Center?

If you think an inpatient addiction recovery program might be right for you, you may be wondering what your days will consist of while in treatment.  It is normal to feel anxious or apprehensive about leaving your familiar surroundings in order to temporarily cohabitate with others in recovery, but distancing yourself from triggering people and situations may be exactly what you need.  By spending time away from your normal routine, you can find the time and space to focus on your healing. Along with the benefits of seclusion, you will also have a welcoming and competent team of professionals help you to structure a specific treatment plan that fits your needs. Treatment centers are often found in beautiful and serene settings that allow you to find comfort in the natural world around you.  Indoors, you are likely to find cozy furniture and a warm environment that feel like a home away from home. Treatment centers, or the programs within them, may be segregated by gender to allow for a distraction-free atmosphere that can cater to the unique needs of men and women.  A holistically-minded treatment center will tend to the needs of many different aspects of your well-being, rather than just focus on getting you sober and send you on your way. This may involve spiritual practices such as yoga and meditation, as well as animal-assisted techniques like equine therapy.   The primary goal of any successful treatment center should be the lasting well-being of its clients.  You will receive tools during your stay that will allow you to address past traumas and psychological issues, as well as the stressors of everyday life, without the crutch of substance abuse.  You will foster and develop these skills through a variety of daily activities such as individual counseling, group therapy, physical exercise, art therapy, and many more. Through communication with your counselor and family therapy sessions, your loved ones will have access to many resources to help them support your recovery as well.
