What are the Holidays like in Residential Treatment?

Most of us have never spent the winter holidays in residential treatment, even if we have completed a substance abuse treatment program previously. If you are on the fence about attending treatment around the holidays for fear of missing out on year-end celebrations and camaraderie, do not despair! At Evolutions, we strive to provide a festive environment for our clients around the holidays, bringing the spirit of the season into our facilities so that you can enjoy this special time of year while working on your recovery.

Treatment centers usually plan special holiday meals for major holidays, and Hanukah, Christmas, and New Year’s are no exception! You should not hesitate to enroll in a substance abuse treatment program out of fear of missing out on your favorite holiday treats and meals, especially if you choose to attend Evolutions Treatment Center. Our culinary staff spare no expense when it comes to preparing a holiday feast for our clients, served outside to take advantage of the beautiful winter weather here in South Florida.

Another common concern for those debating whether to attend inpatient treatment during the holidays is a lack of contact with family and loved ones. Most treatment centers are understanding of this situation and provide clients with extra phone time in order to stay in touch with family and friends during the holidays. At Evolutions, one of the treatment options which could be included in your customized treatment plan is family therapy, which would provide the opportunity for you to enjoy some time with family in a controlled, positive environment so as to avoid any stress which may inhibit your recovery work.

Your first impressions of the idea of enrolling in substance abuse treatment during the holidays may be negative, as you will not want to sacrifice your enjoyment of holiday meals and time with family. “Treatment will be there after the holidays” is a refrain we have heard all too often from those exploring the admissions process. The sad reality is yes, treatment will be here after the holidays, but the same cannot be said for you. Every day of active addiction is a direct threat to your life, so do not delay another day in seeking admission to a substance abuse treatment center. At Evolutions, our Admissions Counselors are available around the clock throughout the holiday season. Call now at 833-818-3031 and take this first lifesaving step towards sobriety.
