Our philosophy focuses on each individual's full and complete recovery, from start to finish. We utilize a broad range of both traditional and innovative therapies tailored to each resident’s unique needs.
Morning wake up calls at 5PALMS are an invitation to begin a new day – a day where anything is possible – a day where you discover opportunities to let your mind, body, and soul heal. If you choose to participate, we begin our mornings with a daily reflection, designed to rejuvenate, bring joy, and give insight for daily living. We also allow an opportunity for everyone to participate in morning movement therapy, which may consist of walking, running, yoga, or even heading to the gym. After a refreshing shower, our culinary team will treat you to a hot breakfast; for those who crave something a little lighter, we offer an array of dietary options to meet your needs.
During our morning education sessions, you will be provided with the most current information on topics such as: Addiction, Mental Health, and Medical Care. This is followed by additional skills-based education that includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (which is a fancy way of saying, we teach you how to change the way you think, feel, and act.) Next, you will engage in specialized Trauma Workshops designed specifically for you and the symptoms you struggle with the most. With the support of trained professionals and a safe environment, you have the best opportunity to tackle your demons. The promise of 5PALMS is to partner with you every step of the way, helping you rebuild the strength you need to step out on your own.
After a nutritious lunch prepared by our culinary team, you will be invited to spend the afternoon developing friendships and allowing your creative side to emerge as you partake in our Expressive and Adventure Based Therapies. Many people tell us THIS is one of their favorite memories.
As we move closer to the evening, your day fully culminates with Process Group. This is your chance to spend time with your Individual Therapist, in a small group setting, with people you have grown to trust and care for. It is also your opportunity to process the things you have struggled with that day, what you have learned, and to share your experience, strength, and hope with each other. Process Group is one of the most powerful experiences you can have in treatment. Because of that, we allow you time afterwards to decompress - to spend time alone, to talk to a friend, to journal, or even to cry.
When you are ready, our culinary team will have a delectable evening meal prepared for you. At this point, you will be able to rejoin friends for a Community Activity allowing you to get out of the house for a few hours and do something fun! There is much to explore in our area such as: miniature golf, sober support meetings, and movies. Once you return home for the evening, you will take a moment to wrap up your day together and reflect on your mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being before retiring for the evening.
5PALMS of Ormond Beach, Florida is dedicated to creating an environment where you feel safe, supported, and cared for, so that you have the BEST chance of healing. Not because we have to… because we want to… and because you deserve it! We hope to see you soon.
