What is a typical day in the residential program

Clients in the Sobriety Matters Residential Program begin the day with a Rise and Shine daily preparation period, and a Daily Intentions group. Next, clients attend the therapeutic Process Group, an issues-based self-disclosure and feedback modality.  Clients share a communal lunch in our cafeteria, meals offer balanced nutrition and sober socialization.  The afternoon groups deliver a rotation of practical recovery skills, such as chemical dependency education, life skills, treatment community development, and relapse prevention.  Twelve Step Philosophy, Stress Management, Big Book Study, and Disease Theory of Addiction groups are offered, as well.  Nursing and Medical staff members provide Health, Wellness, and Nutrition educational groups, and are available for health evaluation and counseling throughout the clinical day.  Our clients participate in supervised recreational outings and off-property Twelve Step meetings.  After dinner, clients participate in Teamwork Ethic, and a Twelve Step-based activity.


Clients will meet with counselors individually at least once per week, and counselors will schedule weekly family sessions.  Family members are invited to attend our weekly Family Group.

How often can I see my family in the residential program?

Sobriety Matters has visitation every Saturday from 3pm to 5pm. We strongly encourage and may require that family members also attend our Family Group which is held every other Saturday. We believe that family, as defined by the client, is an important part of recovery. We include individual family sessions as part of our program and schedule them at the availability of the family.

What happens if I relapse when I leave?

Sadly, we cannot guarantee that you will be sober forever, relapse can be a part of this chronic disease. If a relapse occurs, we encourage our clients to contact us or their support group to get back on track right away, limiting the negative consequences of the relapse. For private pay clients, we do offer a “warranty,” where if you relapse or require additional support within 365 days of discharge, you may come back for up to 14 days of residential treatment for no additional cost. This does not include detoxification services if needed.
