A Typical Day
What's a day in rehab like?

A typical day at Sanctuary begins with a healthy breakfast.   Mid-morning activities include groups with counselors, life skills trainings or recreational activities followed by a rejuvenating lunch. Afternoon activities continue with lectures, presented by counselors, doctors, nurses and outside professionals, and gender specific groups led by the counseling staff.  Recreational outings to local area parks and attractions occur mid-afternoon. Once dinner has been finished patients attend either an on-site or off-site support meeting. They are encouraged to meet others in sobriety and begin networking with sober peers who have been able to maintain sobriety over the years. Once the meeting is over they return to the unit for some free time and retire for the day.
