A Typical Day at Heartland Recovery Center

A typical day a Heartland Recovery Center starts off with the clients checking in with the Director of Supportive services, where they have the opportunity to discuss any topic of their choice and select their lunch from a handpicked catering menu.

After check in, the clients then proceed to the group rooms where one of the four unique paths will be explored and processed for the day. That path is broken down into two sections with a break in between, which allows time from processing, discussions, and questions. After the group sessions, the clients proceed to an education session, where they will learn beneficial information to help them through life.

Following the education section, the clients enter the cafe, where their catered lunches are waiting for them. The clients will eat a nutritious lunch and will be able to relax in the zen room next to the cafe. The zen room also has fun activities like Sudoku and 3-D cube puzzles for the clients to solve.

After lunch, the clients return to the group rooms for a process group, where the group discusses where they are at within the program. From there, the clients proceed to a life skills sessions, where they learn skills that will help them throughout life, in a fun and interactive environment. Scheduled guest speakers and onsite individual therapy sessions are also included throughout the week, based on the client’s needs.

The clients end the day with a client debrief, where they end the day on a positive note, discuss personal resolutions, make group announcements, and personal tasks and challenges are set into play.

Choosing Your Path

During Heartland Recovery Center’s program, clients are exposed to 4 unique Paths of Recovery with the goal that they will connect with one or more and continue on with that upon completion of the program.

4 Unique Paths:

  • The Clinical Path: This path is a more psychological approach to treatment. This model is meant to be more therapeutic and to get to know our client’s brain. This recovery model is favored by clients with PTSD or clients that have suffered through abuse/trauma.
  • The Emotional Model Recovery Path: Unlike the Clinical recovery path, the Emotional Model Recovery Path (EMR) is centered on what makes the client uncomfortable. When our client focuses on what is making them uncomfortable, they can then get down to the core issue(s) in order to help them recover.
  • The Spiritual Path: Our Spiritual Path of recovery is our more holistic approach to treatment. We combine spirituality, on all levels, and recovery in order to give our clients “mental healing.” This path includes activities such as yoga and meditation.
  • The Traditional Path: This path is the closest path to a “typical way” of recovery. In the Traditional Path, not only do we guide our clients through the 12 steps of recovery, we go into each step with detail to give them a well-rounded education about recovery.
