Starting a drug or alcohol rehab program can be scary. But rehabilitation from addiction is one of the most important steps you can take for your health and well-being. Understanding what to expect at a rehab center before you begin can help to put your mind at ease.
Schedule and Organization
Structure, scheduling, and organization is a very important part of a routine. Recovering from addiction can be a scary and emotionally unsure time. By having daily routines and activities that you can expect and rely on, it helps restore balance and consistency into your life. Meals are usually at the same time every day. In addition, any therapies and activities will be planned ahead of time. You can expect to know what your weekly routine will be like, so there is less likely to be any surprises or uncertainty.
Healthy Meals and Exercise
Part of the healing process is restoring your body back to health. During any sort of residential rehab, you can expect to receive healthy, balanced meals on a regular basis. If you have food allergies or dietary restrictions, staff will work hard to accommodate you. Physical activity is strongly encouraged, so that will be a part of your daily routine as well.
Art and music can be extremely helpful in the recovery process. So along with group and individual therapy, you will also have access to art and music therapy. Finding a creative outlet that appeals to you can be a powerful tool in your recovery.
Every person’s addiction journey is different, so every person’s recovery journey is going to be different as well. Rehab centers offer individualized therapies that are tailored to your specific needs. Sometimes this will include one on one sessions with a therapist. Sometimes it will include group sessions with other residents.
