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.
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.
