Each day starts with a physical evaluation for every client.  We then proceed to yoga practice or a walk on our beautiful grounds.  After physical activity, breakfast is served.  There is time for personal meditation before group therapy work and lectures begin at 9:00 a.m.  Lunch is served at noon.  Afternoon sessions begin at 1:30 p.m.  Dinner is served at 5:00 p.m.  Evening sessions begin at 7:00 p.m.  A snack is served at 9:00 p.m. and is followed by time for personal meditation.  Bedtime is at 11:00 p.m.

Each day varies for each client according to the individual therapy plan created for them.  Work with a client’s primary therapist or sessions with our staff psychiatrist are scheduled based on the client’s needs and progress.  Some clients attend 12-step group meetings on various days – a few 12-step group meetings are conducted on our grounds while other meetings take place in Abilene.

On Saturdays, the client goes with the group for lunch at a restaurant in Abilene.

Sundays are more loosely structured as we prepare clients to do work on their own.  Visitation is on Sundays between 2-4 p.m.
