What a Drug Rehab Really Looks Like (Pictures!)
I know, you’re mortified. You really don’t want to go to rehab, and you’ve heard horror stories. You know the ones. The food was partially alive. Doctors stick you with needles all day. The weakest links are fed to the alligators- that kind of stuff.
But what if I told you none of that is true?
No, you won’t writhe dramatically on the tiles all day because your withdrawal symptoms are slowly killing every cell in your body. The floor isn’t made up of the tears and grime of patients came and gone.You won’t be forced to sing kumbaya in group all day long. And you definitely won’t have to sleep in a bed crawling with bed bugs.
All those awful stories about rehabilitation are the worst of the worst- and are certainly not a true reflection of what rehabilitation centers look like. Take a peek into Harbor Village and see what we mean:
Rehab & Detox Centers Can be Opulent
Look at that beautiful gazebo! Our clients get to go there everyday during detox for group in our sunkissed Florida tropics.
24 hours a day, seven days a week, our clients can relax in our spa and get the best massage of their lives, again and again. Well okay, after the fourth consecutive one, you should probably give someone else a turn. Sharing is caring!
I Would Eat Off This Floor
Well okay. I’m lying. But it’s pretty darn nice in here! We change the flowers seasonally to give a pop of color for all meals throughout the day!
Outdoor Recreation Is Important
Rehab shouldn’t make you feel like you’re in a prison cell. Harbor Village encourages clients to spend as much time in the sun as they can stand. It’s important to free your mind and rejuvenate the physical, mental, and emotional planes during recovery equally. Connecting with nature helps us to that more readily. (So no, we don’t have any creepy, haunted hospital rooms- which I’m moderately disappointed about.)
Lounge Anywhere You Want!
Enjoy laying around? Me too! We have plenty of places to curl up with a great book, socialize, and join group sessions, without being bored with the same setting everyday.
Air Hockey Anyone?
And you thought rehab wasn’t awesome. Yes. There is air hockey involved. How could you not want to come here?
Look at that Gorgeous Staff
Last, but certainly not least, take a glimpse at the amazing staff of Harbor Village, who are single handedly responsible for successfully rehabilitating thousands of clients from all around the country.
