Here at Recovery Ways we offer unique therapeutic programs for our patients. These programs will help them during their stay, as well as their time in recovery. Our sensory integration therapy offers a one of a kind, patient-centered therapy, that helps patients identify their feelings of depression, anxiety, anger, pain, and agitation and gives them a new way of coping with those feelings. It gives them a way to self-regulate their emotions, feelings of pain, and their environment through music, sounds, imagery, and sensations. Our licensed occupational therapists give patients the chance to learn life skills and coping mechanisms they may have missed out on due to their addiction.
Sensory Integration Therapy
Recovery Ways’ Sensory Rooms provide an environment that nurtures the body and invites the person to engage in activities that help them to feel good and to focus on strengths, interests, and personal self-care. Recovery Ways has created a dedicated room that aids in the removal of stresses of the outside world. It is an artificially created space that brings together multi-sensory equipment in one place to stimulate or calm the senses. Our multi-sensory room offers a nurturing, patient-centered, sensory supportive, interdisciplinary treatment space. This room provides a specifically designed space that provides clients with additional options for recognizing and reducing their level of self-perceived distress and anxiety.

These specially designed sensory rooms, or Snoezelen rooms, offer a multiple of sensory stimulation for our patients to make them more comfortable as well as more aware of their body and their feelings. When patients feel stressed or upset about something they are used to using their substance to cope. These rooms teach them different ways to handle those feelings. Surrounded by comfortable seating, cushions, a swing, 65 different colored LED lights, calming imagery such as beaches and mountains, and music or sounds. All of these things help to make that patient feel calmer and able to explore their feelings of depression, anxiety, pain, and agitation. They have sensory stimulating things such as weighted blankets, pillows, and other comforting tools.
Recovery Ways Sensory Room is used to facilitate empowerment, relaxation, self-awareness, sensory awareness, and self-regulation. Our room offers a variety of sensory modalities that the patients can explore and use to assist with self-regulating when they are feeling overstimulated, overwhelmed, or triggered. A patient can also use the sensory room when feeling depressed, sad, tired, or exhausted to assist with changing alertness levels to be able to attend to daily activities and learn to self-regulate. This self-regulation allows patients to feel more control over their addiction and their everyday life. While patients are at Recovery Ways they will have scheduled times for the sensory room therapy but they will also have access to it if they need it at an unscheduled time.
Our therapists use the time spent in the room to focus on the patients allowing them to choose the sounds they hear, images, and colors they see. Patients even describe the sensory therapy as fun and helpful. When patients enter the room they are asked to rate their pain, agitation, and anxiety level and then asked to do so again before they are finished. Between 58-62% of patients feel less agitated and less anxiety, 50% feel less pain, and 98% feel more calm. Teaching this therapy to patients while they go through treatment allows them to figure out and understand their stressors and gives them a healthy way of dealing with them and overall daily stress they may feel when beginning their new sober life.
