Following an initial treatment program may be a good time for an individual to set some relatively flexible, yet realistic short and long term goals for themselves. Within the ideal setting, the assistance of therapists, counselors, mentors and hopefully family, these goals will be met. With progression, new goals may be developed setting the bar even higher. Unlike traditional rehab centers, the conveniences of many modern comforts are not available to find solace in. Purposefully located out of the reach of many of the influences triggering those behaviors looking to be changed, clients are able to become more aware off their true physical and emotional states.
Not going through the process alone, an individuals primary interactions will be with other clients, their therapist and family. Between them, they will become a mutual support group of mentors and lifelong friends. Individuals will learn the importance of exercise, eating properly and obtaining plenty of rest. There are no cutting corners when attending a rehab center of this intensity. There are many natural challenges to be faced and obstacles to overcome by these individuals. It is quickly realized the choices made and behaviors displayed not only have an impact on themselves but on those around them.
