Once you’ve safely overcome your withdrawal symptoms, then you can tackle the root cause of addiction and learn how to prevent relapse. This is achieved through our behavioral therapies which include treatment models such as cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy, solution focused therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy among others. 

Other aspects of your personalized treatment program may also include holistic treatments such as dual diagnosis to treat a co-occurring mental disorder, health and wellness programs, and activities designed to encourage community engagement.

What Does the Average Day Look Like While in Rehab?

At Legacy Healing Center, we offer residential and intensive outpatient services. So, what is rehab like on an average day? In our outpatient treatment programs for alcohol or drug addiction, you can expect to have several appointments throughout the week. On a day that you have treatment scheduled, you can expect to come in at the set time, carry out your treatment, and then return to work or your home when it’s completed.

In our residential programs for people residing in St. Petersburg, Florida, is the more intensive form of treatment that we offer. An average day in our inpatient program will start by waking up in your private or shared, furnished room. Once you’ve prepared for the day with a refreshing shower, you will have a nutritious breakfast prepared by our in-house chefs. 

You’ll then partake in therapy and holistic healing programs throughout the morning in both group and individual settings before having lunch. The afternoon will be filled with more therapies and activities to guide you through your recovery before having a delicious dinner. The day will end with you preparing for a good night’s rest in your room with some private time to contemplate the day’s events and lessons.

Group Therapy

One of the ways you’ll receive treatment is through group therapy. In recovery from alcohol or drug addiction, group therapy can provide you with unique insights into your personal addiction experience. 

As the hurdles of addiction and successes in recovery are discussed in a group with other recovering people and a healthcare professional, you can learn through others’ experiences. You will hear about what other people in the program are doing to overcome their addiction and share an affinity with them since you will likely be going through many similar experiences. 

Group therapy can also help to build your confidence in your own recovery as you explore and share some of the experiences you had. It can also be the platform that helps you to connect with other people in the program on a more personal level, offering you peer support. 

One-on-One Therapy

Therapy is also highly effective when in a one-on-one format. In this individual format, you will explore the behavior, thinking, and potential problems stemming from your past that have caused you to turn or continue to abuse drugs or alcohol. The individual therapy is private and takes place in a safe, therapeutic space so that you can explore sensitive or complex areas of your life.

Sober-Friendly Attractions near St. Petersburg
