Peers and What to Expect in Addiction Rehabilitation

Campus Life

Within 24 hours of admission, new patients are introduced to the facility, program, and community by a peer advocate or counselor assistant. During orientation you will review schedules, responsibilities, policies, and protocols, and receive a guided tour of the campus. Many patients arrive on campus stressed and unsure, and orientation goes a long way to acclimatizing patients and families to the comfort, reassurance, and security Wellbridge provides.

Buddy System
Every new patient is paired with a “buddy,” a patient in their third or fourth week of treatment, who knows the program and the campus. Buddies ease the transition to treatment, provide peer support, and help to reduce the worry and anxiety that comes with the first steps of recovery.

Community Meetings
Daily community meetings give focus, unity, camaraderie, and build peer support. This meeting integrates all patients together, welcomes new residents, allows opportunity to voice achievements or concerns, and celebrates those with successful program completions.

Peer Advocacy
A Certified Recovery Peer Advocate (CPRA) assists all patients with peer support, individualized program development, treatment engagement, and connections within the Wellbridge community. Peer advocacy can bridge communication, enhance understanding, and establish empathy for the treatment experience.

At Wellbridge, we provide a place of dignity and hope for patients and families struggling with addiction. With a personalized and whole-person approach to treatment, our goal is to return you to a productive and healthy life on the path to a sustained recovery.

Business Center
We created a business center with phones and computers available for our patients. The clinical team will work with each individual to ensure usage works with the care plan and schedule.
