What is a day at Astoria Pointe like?
Astoria Pointe is immediately calming to nerves—the views of the river and the kind staff put you at ease. Being here is like a breath of fresh air, and even though treatment is tough, it feels like a new chapter in life is starting.
The day begins early with a meditation session and then breakfast to help you prepare for therapy.
The nature here is restorative—every day you see the river and trees surrounding the center, filling you with tranquility.
After breakfast we jump into therapy with process groups, anger management, mindfulness, trauma relief and sometimes outside recovery support meetings.
Eat a nutritious lunch and then dig into topics like managing mood, recovery planning, family systems, classes on health and process groups.
In the afternoon there is time to unwind at the gym, swim at a local pool, or do other sober living activities.
We have dinner together and then head out to a recovery meeting, bond over art therapy or watch a movie to relax before a wrap-up meeting and bed.
Therapy is tough, but worth it.
Each day in treatment you learn about your addiction, process the hardships it caused, uncover the reasons you keep using, and practice healthier ways to cope with triggers in recovery.
We learn from each other.
Everyone accepts you here and the staff truly care about you and your recovery. We're all facing different challenges, but we're headed towards the same goal: a healthier, more fulfilling life. The support and compassion is inspiring.
Astoria Pointe taught me that I don't have to be who I was yesterday. The tools I was taught at Astoria Pointe I still use today. I met people who now I'm very close friends with. Astoria Pointe gave me the strength to look in the mirror each day, and it saved my life.
