How do Treatment Centers Celebrate the Holidays?

For many addicts and alcoholics, the moment of clarity which enables them to make the decision to seek treatment for their substance abuse disorder can happen at any time. This means you may find yourself entering treatment just before the holiday season and, by extension, spending the holidays in the residential treatment center of your choice. If this is your first time entering a residential treatment center, you likely have no idea what to expect regarding holiday celebrations. At Evolutions, we strive to provide our clients with a traditional holiday experience so they can celebrate their first holiday season in sobriety. Here are a few steps Evolutions Treatment Center takes to achieve this goal.

Most everyone associates Thanksgiving with an extravagant meal with those closest to you. While your family may be far away, our executive chef and kitchen staff spare no expense when it comes to recreating a traditional holiday meal for our clients. The dining room receives similar treatment, as our staff decorate all the common areas to provide our clients with an atmosphere reminiscent of being home for the holidays. We understand our clients are likely missing their families and are already emotional during these early stages of sobriety, so we do all we can to create an environment as festive and cheerful as possible.

The other key component of the holidays is quality time with family and close friends. At Evolutions, we understand the importance of family support in a person’s sobriety, which is why we offer family therapy sessions in which to begin the process of repairing these crucial relationships in our clients’ lives. During the holiday season, our clinical staff will ensure you have ample opportunity to reach out to your loved ones and express your holiday wishes for them, in a controlled setting to ensure healthy dialogue between you and others.

Believe it or not, the holiday season is an excellent time to enter treatment and begin a journey in recovery. By admitting yourself to a residential treatment facility during the holidays, you ensure your sobriety will not be threatened by the temptations that come with many traditional festivities and celebrations. Additionally, you will be giving yourself the greatest gift of all - the gift of sobriety and the opportunity to achieve a life beyond your wildest dreams! If you are ready to take this step, Evolutions is here to help. Call our Admissions Counselors today at 833-818-3031 and let us help you begin your sobriety journey!
