Taking the steps to seek addiction treatment can be challenging. However, understanding what to expect from your treatment center can help you take that next step more easily. Every center will be different, but you can expect to have a daily schedule you follow. It’s essential to pick a center that offers a range of treatment and recreation options so you can stay enriched and occupied as you work through your addiction.

This article will help you get an idea of what your experience might look like so you can find a center that will give you the support you need.

What Do You Do Everyday in Rehab?

A typical day in rehab will vary depending on your program and needs. At Sana, every day starts with a healthy breakfast designed to jumpstart your morning and promote energy. After eating, you’ll start your scheduled activities. A schedule might feature therapy sessions, group activities, recreational time, individual counseling, and rest periods. We offer a range of treatment types and recreational activities to ensure you get the best possible treatment for your needs.

Your schedule will also include any medical appointments and medication management you require. Finally, Sana offers three daily meals from a menu created by a Doctor of Nursing and an award-winning chef. These meals are supplemented by daily snacks and a coffee bar, providing you with the nutrition you need to support your journey.

Having a regular schedule at rehab lets you focus on your treatment. Knowing what to expect from every day provides you with clear goals and allows you to dedicate time to treatment, learning new things and relaxation without feeling overwhelmed. You can work with our specialists to develop the ideal plan for your goals and needs.

Can You Visit Someone in Rehab?

Your schedule will make time for visitors. The frequency will depend on your center and your treatment, but many rehabs will allow visiting hours on weekends to help you keep in touch with your loved ones. Visitors can often stay for a couple of hours on Saturdays and Sundays, letting you speak to your loved ones about your experience and how you’re working through your treatment. If you’re missing a favorite food or drink the center doesn’t offer, your loved ones can give you a treat when they stop in to say hi.

Getting scheduled visitor time adds excitement to your schedule without disrupting your regular activities. This consistency helps keep your routine stable and provides you with even more support.

Addiction Treatment Types

Your day-to-day schedule will look different depending on your treatment type and individual needs. A quality treatment program will work with you to give you a schedule that supports you on your journey. Your schedule should empower you to take an active role in your recovery. Explore the different treatment types available to help you get a better understanding of what happens in rehab:

Recreation Opportunities

Recreation is a critical part of any quality treatment schedule. Having a range of activities lets you exercise your mind and body, reduce stress and help you build lifelong healthy habits. If you’re wondering what it’s like in rehab, here are some of the indoor and outdoor activities you can work into your schedule:

  • Outdoor recreation: Immerse yourself in nature for a relaxing activity. Wandering along a trail lets you interact with nature and stretch your body. Swimming at a pool is another outdoor activity you can include in your treatment schedule. Additionally, games like tennis make for good social interaction and exercise. Snowshoeing is also a possibility for winter-related outdoor time. Getting year-round outdoor time can help you connect with the natural world and reduce stress during your stay.
  • Fitness and wellness: Your treatment center could also have a gym, allowing you to incorporate dedicated fitness time into your day-to-day. Sana’s wellness studio features exercise equipment like treadmills and bikes. Yoga is another excellent fitness activity you can work into your day. You’ll strengthen your body and mind while taking a break from your scheduled treatment blocks.
  • Gardening and nature: Working with the Earth can also feature in your rehab schedule. Sana’s vegetable garden allows residents to learn gardening skills while coaxing plants to life. Connecting with nature through plants lets you add more purpose to your schedule and invest in creating something for yourself.
