A Typical Day

A typical day at Huntington Creek Recovery Center features an array of personalized treatment opportunities, three delicious meals, and ample time to relax and reflect, all organized according to a structured daily schedule.

Upon admission to Huntington Creek Recovery Center, if necessary, patients progress through our detox program during which they will have full access to our clinical program. Once they have stabilized and regained their strength, patients adhere to a consistent schedule during their stay.

Typically, patients start their day at 7 a.m. during the week. Upon waking up, they shower and prepare for breakfast which is served at 8 a.m. After their morning meal, patients ease into the day with a morning meditation to center the body and quiet the mind. Patients then gather for the first lecture of the day, followed by a brief break.

Group therapy occurs each day at Huntington Creek Recovery Center, and patients have their first group session of the day after the morning break. These groups are customized to suit the patients’ needs and can be open, psychoeducational, or organized by gender. Group therapy is led by the primary counselors with the help of our support staff. Furthermore, while partaking in groups, patients benefit from learning about the following:

  • The 12-Steps
  • Trauma
  • Anxiety
  • Coping Skills

After the morning group session, patients break for lunch and enjoy by some free time in their rooms to prepare for the rest of the day’s activities.

Because of our commitment to treating the whole patient, we include numerous experiential therapy opportunities in the programming at Huntington Creek Recovery Center. Each afternoon revolves around a series of experiential activities to strengthen the patients’ minds, bodies, and spirits. As part of the healing process, these therapeutic activities are designed to incorporate movement and creativity, teamwork, skill-building, and problem-solving. By offering an array of experiential activities, patients are able to identify their innate strengths and practice coping skills in a safe environment. Experiential therapy at Huntington Creek Recovery Center can take many forms, including the following:

  • Ropes Courses
  • Yoga
  • Hiking
  • Team-Building Activities
  • Gym Time
  • Miniature Golf
  • Team Sports (volleyball, basketball, etc.)

Dinner is served at 5 p.m. each evening and is followed by another group therapy session. During this time, most patients attend AA meetings, do workbook presentations, exercise in the gym, or enjoy some structured recreation time. Before retiring to bed, patients end the evening with a debriefing group to reflect on the day’s activities. While in the debriefing group, patients are encouraged to identify and celebrate their successes together and set new goals for the following day and beyond.
