Our goal is to provide our patients with an opportunity for healing and recovery. Whether it’s through our workshops, integrative therapies or support groups, the Claudia Black Young Adult Center exists to heal your trauma and provide you with the tools to transform your life.
Throughout the course of a day, a patient will attend a variety of lectures, workshops, therapies, and treatments, in a combination of individual and group settings. Patients have a structured weekly schedule with time blocked out for all the different activities throughout each day.
A Typical Day
Before breakfast, patients have time for reflection and daily hygiene. Breakfast is followed by a community meeting and group therapy. During the week, patients participate in different group therapies and reflection practices before lunch.
The afternoon is composed of self-regulation practices such as acupuncture and yoga, followed by fitness and recreation, specific topic group sessions, individual therapy sessions, and 12-Step study. Throughout the week, patients have the opportunity to attend different offsite activities such as equine therapy, horseback riding, service work, and high and low Ropes, depending on their phase identification.
Dinner is an opportunity to focus on good eating habits and wellness, offering patients a chance to talk to their peers. After dinner, additional group time, followed by nightly meditation and 12-Step programs.
The Claudia Black Young Adult Center daily structure is the foundational element to creating an environment that focuses on healing and recovery. Standards such as designated time for disabling phones during the day allow patients to disengage from distraction and focus on discovering themselves and finding healing.
