Typical Day

What Is A Typical Day Of Treatment?

Every day at Bowling Green Brandywine brings hope and healing to our patients. After enjoying a nutritious breakfast and tidying their living space, patients gather for a community meeting to address any issues and set goals for the day.

In a warm, home-like setting, patients participate in a wide range of recovery lectures, workshops, group therapy sessions and experiential learning groups. Daily 12-Step meetings ensure that patients feel comfortable using AA/NA as an ongoing source of education and support as they work their program of recovery.

Each day concludes with an evening 8th Step meeting focused on making amends. As the day winds down, patients enjoy a few minutes of quiet time in their rooms before lights out is called at 11 p.m.

On weekends, we host a family program where loved ones learn about the disease of addiction, self-care and their role in the recovery process. Authorized visitors are welcome from 11:00 to 11:30 a.m.
