Time for Self-Reflection During PHP Builds a Solid Foundation for Recovery
During PHP clients learn to become responsible for one’s feelings, understand how to cope with feelings, explore sources of personal strength, experience the power found in going to 12 meetings, finding a support group, and begin to understand that drugs and alcohol never solve the problem. All of these experiences build a solid foundation for recovery.
Because clients in early recovery lack many of the tools to identify relapse signs, they are most vulnerable to relapse outside of a structured environment such as that provided in RRC’s PHP. As part of our Partial Hospitalization Program, supporting staff is available 24/7 at our drug and alcohol rehab Florida. The purpose of PHP is to slowly and methodically reintroduce the client to daily life. Therapeutic groups continue as the client learns to renegotiate daily living, like going to the grocery store, attending 12 meetings and showing up timely for clinical services.
RRC is also happy to provide our clients with access to a physical fitness program as well, to heal both mind and body. We believe that achieving a relative degree of physical fitness in conjunction with mental health counseling and meetings, our clients are giving themselves a fighting chance at recovery and better life going forward. Physical fitness can be fun too, and that’s why we incorporate activities like kayaking, obstacle courses, and much more into our adventure therapy and fitness programs.
Clients in PHP receive 20-25 hours (3-5 hours a day) of clinical services. Often clients will need the assistance with medication to help manage continued withdrawal symptoms that can occur after detox such as anxiety, depression, and anger. Medication management is crucial at this point in one’s recovery, and regular assessments by medical and clinical staff ensure that one’s physical and emotional needs are being addressed.
In PHP, clients learn the causes of their addiction, as well as the role of self-reflection about choices and consequences. Behavior modification helps the addict learn to substitute self-destructive behaviors and choices with new self-affirming ones. In addition to the learning experienced within the clinical treatment environment, RRC offers a unique type of therapeutic modality in adventure therapy.
RRC believes there are many avenues to recovery. Adventure therapy is a part of RRC’s PHP and provides clients the opportunity to learn about themselves, use teamwork, problem solve and more outside a south Florida drug rehab building structure in a more natural environment. Such experiences build health not only for addicts but all human beings. Definitive self-esteem building activities strengthen a client’s resiliency and ability to meet challenges without turning to drugs and alcohol or other self-destructive behaviors.
