Why Structure?

October 15, 2016

 

Structure. What a horrible word to anyone fresh out of rehab. Yet, a daily plan helps create a sense of mental harmony and integrity. 

WHAT'S IN A DAY? PRACTICING A NEW MINDFUL LIFE UNTIL IT'S PART OF US

 

Structure provides a sense of predictability and familiarity - a reassuring way of helping life to make sense.  In early recovery, a sense of order is comforting because it eliminates decision making. Residents help plan their schedule which allows for creativity, laughter and learning. We can seamlessly go on from a 12-step meeting to an in-workshop to riding to yoga. 

 

Phase One includes 12-step meetings, social outings, daily exercise, educational in-house workshops, spiritual empowerment, therapy four to five days per week, house responsibilities, creative endeavors, journal time and meditation.

In Phase Two, residents begin to plan their program to fit their needs. A resident will meet every week with her coach to discuss her schedule of meetings, exercise, work, chores, medical appointments, therapy times, and spiritual empowerment.

After rehab, in-home care, and/or extended care, we think sober living is the next logical step toward recovery life. From SAMHSA research, we offer the four pillars of recovery: (1) community, (some life skill support,) (2) mental and physical wellness; including membership at the gym and yoga studio, an emphasis on whole food in shared evening meals, and professional therapy delivered from the surrounding community, (3) finding purpose in work or school and (4) re-integrating into a re-structured family dynamic or a new home. We welcome those with or without a history of treatment and understand that a whole - person - healing is needed to allow sustainable recovery to begin.
