Copper Sky is a newer building at Sierra Tucson. Each room has two beds, two desks, and a bathroom for two people. While there I was able to have mindfulness hour at night. For me, that meant a craniosacral massage at night plus some time in a zero gravity chair. I had never had a massage before and it relaxed myself as well as others inside.
The food was like it was made at home. We had fresh fruit everyday. There was lasagna, macaroni and cheese, steak, steamed fresh vegetables, cookies, and even dishes for vegetarians. Everyday there was something new on the menu.
Around 9-10 am we went for a walk on the nearby track. I saw so many butterflies, gray deer, and even a bay rattlesnake that was relocated to a location that was more remote. DBT and CBT groups were held as well. On the weekends we were able to watch TV. While in Copper Sky there were only 5 patients assigned to each nurse.
The staff were amazing and supportive. Even in triage the doctors were individualized for what our individual treatment plans were. For me trauma and eating recovery were my tracts while I was there. Thanks to the treatment team, my stay there was helpful and was a great way to become acclimated to Sierra Tucson.
