We keep you engaged in treatment with full days and restful evening recovery activities. While your treatment experience will be tailored to your individual needs, the following sample schedule provides a general idea of what to expect at Promises Austin drug rehab.
Morning activities at Promises Austin prepare you to embark on your day in a healthy frame of mind. Daily activities begin at 7:30 am with gentle fitness groups or yoga. Afterward, you’ll enjoy a nutritious, energizing breakfast prepared by our professional chef.
Following your morning meal, you may take part in journaling, meditation, recovery reflections or individual therapy sessions. Depending on the day, the rest of the morning is filled with a variety of groups or mindfulness activities. Morning groups focus on areas such as trauma resiliency, relapse prevention or addiction education.
We serve lunch from 12 to 12:30 pm. Following lunch, you’ll engage in groups that may include: 12-step study, DBT groups, Smart Recovery groups, spirituality activities or therapeutic recreation. During the late afternoon you’ll attend individual therapy or engage in self-care activities like therapeutic massage, yoga, meditation class or time with a personal trainer.
At 5 pm, you’ll enjoy a nutritious dinner with other clients in treatment. After the evening meal, you’ll participate in 12-step support groups. Sometimes these will be on campus, other times we will attend a 12-step meeting in the local community. Every night at 8:30 pm we hold a gratitude group. You’ll have some personal time following group before retiring at 11 pm.
Weekends are a time to recharge, refresh and reflect on the work done that week. You’ll engage in similar activities as those offered on weekdays, but at a slower pace. Weekends also include optional visits to church, visitation time with loved ones, trips to the store and 12-step groups led by Promises Austin alumni. Every Saturday, you’ll enjoy recreational outings in the community to help you process real-world triggers, reintegrate into life outside treatment, and discover how fun life in recovery can be.
