Residential Treatment: What to Expect at Spring Hill Recovery Center

Patients will reside at Spring Hill with around-the-clock guidance and supervision from our clinical staff. The staff works with each patient to determine the appropriate length of residential care, but most people stay for 25 days after successful completion of detox.

Residential Schedule

Throughout their stay, patients will have a full schedule of individual and group activities all tailored to their personalized treatment plans.  This is just an example of what patients can expect during their residential treatment at Spring Hill; all schedules and activities are dependent on the needs of each person.

Weekends at Spring Hill give patients opportunities to bond with each other and with the staff in a more relaxed setting through organized group activities. After the first five full days of treatment, patients are able to earn ten-minute “phone cards” for contacting family and friends. Earning these cards depends on each individual’s needs for treatment, their progress through treatment, and the discretion of that person’s primary therapist. We offer two hours of family visitation every Saturday and Sunday for patients who have completed the first five days of treatment.

Your treatment plan is tailored to your needs so providing an exact schedule here isn’t possible, but we can review what an average schedule may include. Please note that this is a sample schedule and is subject to change.

Family Therapy & Intensive Family Weekend

Once a month families of patients are invited to Spring Hill’s family weekend. The staff will give a presentation about the disease of addiction and its effects on the brain followed by an explanation of how treatment is handled at our facility by our clinical staff. This way, families can understand what their loved ones experienced when they were addicted, what they experience while being treated for the addiction, and how to prepare them for a lifetime of recovery after they leave Spring Hill’s care. On the tail end of the weekend, patients join their families to participate in communication exercises together as a cohesive unit.

What Happens When I Leave Spring Hill?

Alumni Support

Spring Hill is dedicated to helping patients through their lifetime of recovery. We are proud to have a large, active alumni community organized by our staff. Spring Hill also has an annual alumni weekend for former patients to reconnect with themselves and each other. When there are no major events going on, our staff keeps alumni active and engaged through e-mail newsletters. Patients at Spring Hill are given the option to begin plugging into the alumni community during their fourth week of residential/inpatient treatment.
