A Typical Day in Rehab: What to Expect
What Is Rehab Like and How Will You Spend Your Days?
One of the common concerns among people who have an addiction and are interested in coming to a treatment facility like Muse Treatment is what to expect.
First and foremost, when you commit yourself to drug rehab or alcohol rehab in Los Angeles, you can rest assured you will receive the continuous support that you need to begin to manage the different aspects of your addiction. You will spend most of your time participating in various forms of one-on-one, group, and holistic therapies, but you will also have downtime throughout your day to relax and reflect.
A Typical Day in Treatment for Alcohol and Drug Addiction
When it comes to what to expect when you start your day, you should keep in mind that part of what you will learn in rehab is structure and routine. Rehab usually begins as early as 7 AM with a wake-up call for you to go and have breakfast. From there, you will participate in different activities that will help to relax you and keep you calm throughout the day.
Your afternoons will be filled with taking part in various types of counseling. These counseling sessions will be scheduled with breaks in between so you can grab a bite to eat. In the evening, you will have the chance to take part in other programs or activities or simply sit back and relax for the rest of the night.
What Kind of Therapies Are Used in Addiction Treatment Centers?
There are several different types of therapies offered during an alcohol rehab or a drug rehab program. Some examples of the traditional forms of therapy you can expect to experience during the course of your treatment include:
- Group therapy: Group therapy is a perfect way not only to talk about your addiction with other people that are struggling with their own addiction but an excellent way for you to begin to become used to talking about your own addiction. If you have attended a 12-step meeting in the past, you will notice that group therapy will closely follow the format of a 12-step meeting. If you haven’t attended a 12-step meeting, regularly interacting and sharing in group therapy will help you feel more comfortable when you go to a meeting.
- Individual therapy: Understandably, you may not always feel comfortable talking about certain aspects of your life and addiction in a group setting. This is why individual therapy will play an important role in your treatment plan. During these sessions, you will have the chance to check in with a counselor and talk about how you’re feeling and how you feel you are progressing in your treatment.
- Cognitive behavioral therapy: Part of the problem that a person with addiction is that their addiction has taken total and complete control over their life. As a result, they cannot react in a healthy manner to certain situations. Cognitive-behavioral therapy can help develop a better understanding of healthy reactions to stressful situations to avoid relapse.
