A Day in Treatment

A Day in Treatment

A look at daily life during treatment at Recovery Centers of America.

When you stop using drugs or alcohol, you could experience some form of withdrawal because your body physically adjusted to a certain volume of these dangerous substances. Withdrawal symptoms from drugs and alcohol can occur over several days, and be painfully intense. Alcohol and benzodiazepines withdrawal symptoms in particular can potentially threaten your life.

For a safe, comfortable withdrawal from drugs and alcohol, Recovery Centers of America (RCA) provides Acute Treatment Services (ATS). Our physicians, nurse practitioners, and nursing staff have extensive experience administering ATS. Guiding the ATS process starts with a physical assessment to determine your needs, followed by medical management or monitoring that last 24 hours a day, 7 days a week until your body is free of harmful substances. Once you complete ATS, you can transition to the next level of care of ongoing treatment of post-acute withdrawal, Clinical Stabilization Services or CSS.

Call 877-287-4876 for more information about acute treatment services at RCA.

By structuring your drug or alcohol treatment, Recovery Centers of America (RCA) helps you establish healthy patterns you can continue to use when you leave treatment to maintain a sober lifestyle.

Beginning your daily routine.
You’ll spend the first few days in drug or alcohol treatment program getting acclimated to a scheduled routine. In the Medical Unit, our licensed medical team consisting of our medical director, nurses, and nurse practitioners will administer a complete physical and psychological assessment, and manage your detoxification. Once the assessment and detox are complete, we will place you in your therapy groups, and our licensed, credentialed therapists will begin your one-on-one counseling.

Most days begin at 7 am with meditation and a nutritious breakfast. Next, you’ll attend group therapy sessions and individual therapies, followed by recreation and physical activities. After that, you’ll have additional group and individual therapy sessions as well as life skills training and engaging educational workshops. Typical days wrap up with a 12-Step meeting.

We’ll schedule daily sessions and activities on your weekends as well, with time allotted for additional 12-Step meetings and family visits, since we consider the integration of your family into the treatment process is an essential element of success in long-term recovery.
