July 1, 2019 6:28 pm - Published by

Royal Life Centers at Spokane Heights provides comprehensive addiction treatment for alcohol and substance use disorder. Royal Life Centers at Spokane Heights offers addiction treatment programs designed to follow guests through the recovery process. During our treatment programs, guests will learn a variety of coping mechanisms and life skills that promote health and wellness on a mental, physical, and spiritual level. During addiction treatment, guests should learn how to break bad habits and replace them with healthy habits.

Our Rehab Programs

Royal Life Centers at Spokane Heights offers programs in an inpatient level of care. Our programs encourage guests to explore tools that work for them through a variety of intensive therapies and therapeutic activities. The recovery process is all about learning a new way to live, focusing holistically on health in the mind, body, and spirit.

Our alcohol and drug rehab program offers education on picking up healthy habits and participating in the process of bettering yourself. Often times, addiction treatment can be stressful or exhausting, which is why we encourage guests to practice self-care and participate in activities that allow them to heal and support their mental, physical, and spiritual health. It is important to remain invested in your own health and wellness, which is why we put together these 5 simple ways to improve your health in a drug rehab program:

1. Pay attention to your nutrition

Royal Life Centers at Spokane Heights believes in the difference that a healthy diet and eating habits make. For this reason, we have an in-house private chef who prepares our guests three balanced meals each day. Our nutritional program leads guests by example, teaching them how to make healthy food choices. Nutrition is often ignored during active addiction, which is why it is especially important to make sure that you are nourishing your body properly during the recovery process. It’s never too late to make healthy nutritional habits.

2. Listen to your body

Our holistic approach to addiction treatment relies on re-establishing and strengthening the connections between mind, body, and spirit. Because these connections are re-established, guests will have more awareness as to how they are feeling on a mental, physical and spiritual level. For optimal health, pay attention to the signs your body is giving you. This is an extremely simple way to recognize and meet your health needs. If you are extremely exhausted, make sure you get a full eight hours of sleep that night; if you are constantly craving water, make sure you are well-hydrated at all times; etc.

3. Practice mindfulness

Practicing mindfulness through meditation or other methods can seem overwhelming if you feel like you don’t know what you’re doing, however, we naturally practice mindfulness without even realize we are doing so. Mindfulness is all about staying present in the moment, focusing on your senses in that exact moment. What can you hear, taste, feel/touch, smell, and see? Practicing mindfulness can be as simple as drinking a cup of tea. Focusing on the present moment is extremely important, especially while you are in the recovery process— focusing on the past and the future too much is actually harmful to your journey of recovery. By staying in the moment, you are more able to focus on what is going on right now as opposed to worrying about the future or the past.

4. Do therapeutic activities

Therapeutic activities like creating artwork, journaling, making and listening to music, etc. are extremely important to practice during addiction treatment. Therapeutic activities like these will allow for creative expression, providing an outlet for the many emotions you will feel through out addiction recovery. Therapeutic activities are great healthy practices to make habits out of, and they are helpful to use both in and out of treatment. Often times, participating in a therapeutic activity like journaling, will bring insight to you— telling you what your thoughts and feelings are, when they may be unclear to you.

5. Physical wellness regimen

Incorporating an element of physical wellness into your life will bring excellent health benefits, not just for your body, but for your mind and spirit also. Doing something like committing to thirty minutes of yoga once a week will greatly impact your health in a positive way. Physical wellness is very important for your overall health, which is why Royal Life Centers at Spokane Heights encourages guests to partake in physical wellness activities, like the adventure therapy, activity therapy, and equine therapy that we offer.
