A Typical Day

Days at Promises Scottsdale are structured and filled with engaging recovery activities. You’ll address underlying issues that contribute to mental health disorders, eating disorders, intimacy disorders, and drug and alcohol addiction and gain healthy coping skills. While schedules vary by day, program and each person’s treatment plan, below is an example of what a typical day might look like.


Between 7 and 8 am you’ll get ready for the day and eat breakfast. All meals are prepared by our professional chefs and are healthy and delicious. Following the morning meal we usually have a sunrise group, which is a reflective time to set daily goals and remember one thing that is important to you to focus on during the day.

Later in the morning, you may participate in psychodrama or psychoeducational groups on addiction and mental health issues, nutrition and health, or relapse prevention. Afterward, you’ll have time to complete assignments or you may attend groups such as The Daring WayTM shame-resilience curriculum, more educational groups or grief and loss processing groups.


Lunch is served in the early afternoon. Following lunch, we offer a variety of process groups to explore difficulties that may be fueling your addiction and help you develop recovery skills. Group topics may include subjects such as intimacy and relationships, healthy lifestyle, spirituality, mindfulness, or more active groups like recreation therapy, psychodrama, visualization or relaxation. After early afternoon groups you may have individual therapy sessions or participate in yoga, 12-step study group, gym time, or work on past history and family dynamics projects.


Dinner is served in the early evening. Evenings are restful with groups following dinner such as spirituality or family groups, alumni speakers and independent study. Some evenings you’ll participate in onsite or off-campus 12-step meetings. As the day winds down we’ll have sunset group, similar to sunrise group, where you’ll reflect on the day.


Weekend activities are similar to weekdays, with the addition of fun, recovery activities like movie night. You’ll also have additional family groups and family visitation time as clinically appropriate.
