A Typical Day

When you don’t know what to expect, reaching out for professional help for an addiction or a mental health disorder can feel intimidating. To help ease those concerns, here is a glimpse at what a typical day at Twelve Oaks Recovery Center looks like:


Most days at Twelve Oaks Recovery Center begin with a nutritious breakfast, followed by meditation. The morning is typically dedicated to group therapy sessions, which can help you explore the root of the addiction or mental health concerns you have been struggling with.


After taking a break for lunch, you can expect to continue working in your respective therapy groups depending on the goals outlined in your individualized treatment plan.


We offer Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and Cocaine Anonymous meetings on our Navarre, Florida, campus most evenings, along with optional evening process groups that address topics related to addiction and mental health.

During your free time, you may go for a walk on the beach, exercise in our fitness room, play board games, or enjoy a game of beach volleyball.

Lights go out at 11 p.m., allowing you to get a restorative night’s sleep in preparation for another powerful day of recovery.


Group therapy continues on the weekends at Twelve Oaks, with five educational groups offered each day. You may also take part in various addiction or mental health support groups right on campus.

Throughout the weekend, we may offer recovery-related movies and recreational activities, and you have the option of attending a local Navarre, Florida, church on Sundays.

Types of Groups

At Twelve Oaks Recovery Center, we use various evidence-based therapies in our programming that have shown to help people achieve the very best outcomes. Depending on your individualized treatment plan, you may take part in:

  • Lectures – Also known as education groups, lectures educate participants about the substance use or mental health disorder they are struggling with. Speakers may include our therapists, our medical director, and individuals from outside organizations.
  • Process groups – During these sessions, you will have the chance to talk about your struggles with addiction or a mental health concern with people who may share similar experiences. This can be an excellent opportunity to hear different perspectives and receive support in a safe, welcoming environment.
  • Recreational therapy groups – A recreational therapist facilitates these groups using various activities that can help participants better manage the addiction or mental health symptoms they have been suffering from. By taking part in recreational therapy, many participants discover alternative activities to using drugs or alcohol. Some people also learn how to rebuild their social skills and develop the tools they need to live more independently.
  • Circle group – Established by clients, this optional group allows participants to discuss their experiences living with an addiction or a mental health disorder. They can also offer each other the support and feedback they need to remain strong in their healing and recovery journeys.

The admissions process at Twelve Oaks was very efficient, and the staff was so friendly and helpful to me when I needed it the most.
