Residential treatment usually occurs after the completion of a detox and medical stabilization. Those who do not require a medical detox process can sometimes enter a residential program directly.
Residential treatment is considered one of the most critical parts of substance abuse treatment. Detox allows for the removal of a substance from the body and overcoming withdrawal symptoms.
Detox is an important step towards recovery, but residential treatment is when therapy and identification of triggers and other issues occurs. Residential services identify the underlying causes of addiction as well as allow for rest and recovery.
Residential care incorporates 24-hour supervision and care in a safe living environment. reduces distractions and facilitates re-learning of essential life skills. Our residential facility is comfortable and staffed with experienced professionals.
Residential treatment centers usually last anywhere from a week to 60 days. We offer longer lengths of stay when necessary. Longer care is beneficial to those who need additional therapy or structure in their lives to ensure stability in their recovery.
Mental health conditions and addiction can be debilitating and impact all areas of a person’s life, including work, school, relationships, and personal well-being. While traditional outpatient therapy can be helpful, it may not be enough for individuals with more severe or complex mental health issues. Today, I want to share with you how effective residential treatment programs have been for our patients in overcoming substance use. Residential treatment, also known as inpatient treatment, is a comprehensive form of mental health and addiction treatment that provides individuals with round-the-clock care and support in a safe and nurturing environment. These types of treatment programs are designed to meet each patient’s unique needs and offer a wide range of services, including therapy, medicati on management, group therapy, and recreational activities. When patients stay in a residential treatment facility, they are surrounded by a team of healthcare professionals dedicated to helping them overcome their challenges. Individuals in an inpatient program receive 24/7 access to medical care, which can be particularly beneficial for those with severe conditions that require more intensive treatment. Residential treatment provides a structured and supportive environment that helps individuals stay on track with their treatment goals and build healthy habits. In addition, residential treatment programs offer a range of services that can help individuals manage their mental health or substance use disorder symptoms and develop healthy coping strategies. These services may include individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy, medication management, and various evidence-based therapies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing. If someone is struggling with addiction and a co-occurring mental health disorder, a residential treatment program can address both issues simultaneously. By providing integrated care for both mental health and substance abuse, patients can work towards a successful recovery. Residential treatment programs offer various treatments to meet each individual’s unique needs. Some of the most common treatments available in residential treatment programs include: Individual Therapy. Individual therapy provides one-on-one support and allows individuals to work through specific issues with a licensed mental health professional. During individual therapy sessions, individuals can explore their emotions and develop healthy coping strategies. Group Therapy. Group therapy allows individuals to connect with others going through similar struggles and learn coping strategies from one another. These therapy sessions may focus on trauma, addiction, or anxiety. Family Therapy. Family therapy is designed to help families communicate more effectively and work through issues contributing to an individual’s mental health problems. Families can explore their dynamics during family therapy sessions and develop healthier relationships. Medication Management. Medication management is the process of monitoring and adjusting medications to manage mental health symptoms effectively. In an inpatient program, individuals can access medical professionals who prescribe and adjust medication as needed. Evidence-Based Therapies Evidence-based therapies are treatments that have been scientifically proven to be effective. Some of the most common evidence-based therapies used in residential treatment programs include cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing. Recreational Activities Recreational activities such as art therapy, music therapy, and outdoor activities can give patients a healthy outlet for stress. They can also offer opportunities for socialization and connection with others. Treatment facilities often offer a wide range of amenities designed to provide support and comfort to patients during their stay. Residential treatment facilities typically offer comfortable and private accommodations, such as personal or semi-private rooms with comfortable bedding and furniture. Proper nutrition is essential for overall health and well-being, so residential treatment facilities typically provide nutritious meals and snacks to support individuals during their stay. Many facilities also offer fitness and recreation facilities, such as gyms, pools, and outdoor spaces, to promote physical health and provide recreation and stress relief opportunities. They may offer relaxation and mindfulness spaces, such as meditation rooms or yoga studios, to promote relaxation and help individuals manage stress and anxiety. By providing a structured and supportive environment, round-the-clock care, and evidence-based treatments, residential treatment programs can help individuals manage their symptoms, work towards recovery, and improve their overall well-being. If you or a loved one is struggling with a mental health condition, I encourage you to explore the different types of residential treatment programs available and find a program that meets your unique needs.
Who Needs Residential Treatment?
Residential treatment can help anyone who is struggling with a substance abuse addiction or alcoholism. More specifically, it is designed for people who benefit from a longer and more structured treatment approach.
It is also extremely beneficial for long-term users who will have continued medical concerns or withdrawal symptoms. The added medical supervision and structure can make a big difference.
The Intake Process
People entering our residential program go through an intake process with our nurses and doctors. They undergo a medical and psychological assessment to help identify their struggles and needs.
The intake information is then taken to create an individualized treatment plan that best meets the needs of the individual. They are then provided medications to assist with any physical discomfort, or alleviate mental discomfort.
Residential Treatment Explained
As previously explained, most patients go through a detox process prior to entering residential treatment. Many people still experience withdrawal symptoms after detox and require additional supervision and care.
Individuals attend daily therapy, group counseling, and are able to take advantage of case management services. Case management services are used to tend to needs outside of treatment like employment, healthcare benefits, and housing.
We also offer a number of treatment modalities that focus on mental health treatment and mental illnesses. Many who seek addiction treatment benefit from a combination of treatment options.
Types of Therapy
Residential treatment has a heavy focus on individual and group therapy. By the time people enter a residential program, they are usually beginning to feel normal again. This is the ideal time to begin identifying and overcoming the factors that led to drug use.
Individual therapy with our therapists is extremely beneficial to those in the early stages of recovery. Our therapists and trained staff utilize a number of modalities. Some modalities include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT).
Group therapy consists of peers isolating, identifying, and discussing past behaviors, or future plans of action for recovery. This type of group therapy helps many people open up. It also helps people gain insight into their actions while identifying avenues for success in the future.
Another benefit of residential treatment is the medical care it provides. Many who enter residential treatment have been demolishing their bodies with drugs and poor self-care behaviors. The ability to identify and treat any potential medical issues like malnourishment and liver or kidney damage can be life-saving.
While many people overcome their withdrawal symptoms in detox, long-term substance abusers may experience continued withdrawal symptoms. The residential level of care allows for detox protocols and comfort medications to continue. This puts people in the highest level of comfort and withdrawal management possible.
Amenities of Residential Treatment
Residential treatment also includes access to our luxurious amenities and doctors to ensure peace of mind and comfort for all. Residential care usually lasts anywhere from a week to a month depending on the needs of the individual.
Our Residential treatment program is a step above. We focus on the individual, their needs, and comfort while addressing the causes of addiction to isolate a path to addiction recovery.
We offer a full continuum of care that ensures people access to the care they need. We boast experienced and friendly staff in a beautiful facility.
