A Typical Day At An Inpatient Rehab Centre

A Typical Day At An Inpatient Rehab Centre

Taking the first step in securing addiction treatment can be overwhelming. Paired with limited information surrounding what can be expected during an individual’s time in rehab, it is easy to see why so many people defer addiction treatment.

Understanding that the thought of attending an inpatient rehab is often anxiety-inducing, here at Cassiobury Court, we explain what inpatient rehab is and share what a typical day at an inpatient rehab centre consists of here.


What Is Inpatient Rehab?

Inpatient rehab, or residential rehab as it is otherwise known, is a place where individuals who find their lives impaired by addiction can take the first steps in addressing and overcoming their struggles.

Essentially a secure location that safeguards those in recovery, inpatient rehab helps many people remove themselves from their everyday life in order to focus solely on their journey to a sober lifestyle.

Away from the triggers and factors that may well have contributed to the development of an addiction, individuals who attend an inpatient rehab go on to make a long-term recovery.

Although there are many options to consider when it comes to rehab, inpatient treatment is regarded as the most beneficial. This is because inpatient rehab provides 24-hour access to medical care and support.  Inpatient rehab also has greater recovery rates than outpatient rehab.


What Does A Typical Day At An Inpatient Rehab Centre Include?

At Cassiobury Court, our rehab programmes are tailored to the needs of each of our clients. Although this means that a typical day at an inpatient rehab centre may differ for each person, our treatment programmes have a somewhat similar structure.

When considering what a typical day at our inpatient rehab centre consists of, the following can be expected in the mornings, afternoons and evenings.


Mornings In Rehab

Commencing with a nutritious breakfast served by our on-site chef, mornings in rehab are designed to ensure that our clients can prepare themselves for a day of treatment.

After breakfast, treatments designed to encourage those in recovery to relax, hone in on their emotions and share their journey with their peers begin. While the treatments encountered may differ, it is not uncommon for the following well-being therapies to be experienced:

  • Therapeutic art and music therapies
  • Relaxation and sleep management
  • Acupuncture and acu-detox
  • Holistic therapies
  • Mindfulness
  • Self-help sessions

These particular treatments offer advice and guidance to those in recovery. They also help our clients understand how to cope with triggers that could otherwise lead to a relapse.

Overseen by recovery support workers and fitness instructors, we also enable our clients to take part in social and fitness activities such as group walks, group runs, yoga and meditation in the mornings.

It should be noted that mornings in rehab may be structured differently if detoxification is required. When detox is administered, it is encountered in the mornings for the first week of an individual’s time in rehab. Group therapy and well-being therapy will then be administered once a detox programme is complete.


Afternoons In Rehab

Before recommencing treatment in the afternoon, a healthy lunch is served. Giving our clients the chance to reflect on their morning and socialise with others in recovery, for some, this is a much-needed break in between treatments.

As lunch comes to an end, one-to-one counselling and additional group therapy begins. Although group therapy will have been encountered in the morning, the treatments we administer in the afternoons are much more intense.

Treatments that can be expected in the afternoon include the following:

  • Cognitive behavioural therapy
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Recovery planning
  • Stress management
  • Relapse prevention
  • Mental health support

It is important to remember that you may not encounter all of the treatments outlined above upon attending our rehab. However, the treatments incorporated into your personalised treatment programme will encourage you to understand your addiction, reflect on your addiction and uncover the factors that have caused your addiction to arise.

As addictions can have devastating consequences on family units, at Cassiobury Court, we also provide family therapy and mediation. If required, this is also administered during the afternoon.


Evenings In Rehab

After an intense and structured day of treatments, evenings in rehab are somewhat flexible and enable our clients to relax, reflect on their day and enjoy some downtime with others in recovery, should they wish to. We also host several social activities, including quiz nights, team games and film nights that we encourage our clients to participate in to help them unwind.

Although some individuals enjoy participating in these activities, we also understand that some will want to retire to their rooms, speak to their loved ones and take some time to enjoy the surroundings that our rehab boasts.

As the day draws to an end, here at Cassiobury Court, we encourage our clients to try to get a good night’s sleep to ensure they feel refreshed and recharged the following day.
