A Typical Day

Morning

Mornings at Twelve Oaks Recovery Center

Twelve Oaks is a place where comprehensive addiction treatment meets beachside living. Most days begin with a nutritious breakfast and meditation.

The morning is dedicated to small group therapy sessions, which help patients delve into the issues underlying their drug or alcohol addiction. Individuals struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder and addiction free pain management participate in additional therapies and specialized groups with counselors who are experts in this area.

We strive to make Twelve Oaks more than a drug rehab facility, but also each patient’s home away from home. Our facility operates like a town, with an elected patient serving as mayor and town hall meetings each morning. We encourage patient feedback and suggestions so that our “town” remains a safe, comfortable place for patients to do the hard work of addiction recovery.

During their free time, patients may go for a walk on the beach, work out in our fitness room, board games, or play volleyball on the beach.

At 11 p.m., the lights go out as patients enjoy a restorative night’s sleep in preparation for another powerful day of recovery.
