A Typical Day
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.
Morning activities at Promises Austin prepare you to embark on your day in a healthy emotional 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, integrative breath work, relapse prevention, addiction education or The Daring WayTM shame-resilience curriculum.
We serve lunch from 12 to 12:30 pm. Following lunch you may use your cell phone from 12:30 pm to 1 pm, as deemed clinically appropriate by your primary therapist. From 1 pm to 3 pm, you’ll engage in one or two groups. These may include: integrative breath work, 12-step study, Positive Recovery® groups, spirituality activities, therapeutic recreation or cooking classes. 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 at Promises Austin addiction treatment center are full. You’ll engage in similar activities as those offered on weekdays. Weekends also include optional visits to church, visitation time with loved ones, store runs and 12-step groups led by Promises Austin alumni.
