Addiction Treatment

residential-treatmentAccording to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), the most effective approach to treatment for addiction and successful long-term recovery includes a combination of a variety of therapies, along with medically supported treatment. These treatment combinations are used in residential treatment programs.

What is Residential Treatment?

Residential treatment provides patients with a structure and support system that allows them to focus on their recovery without the presence of drugs or alcohol, effectively reducing the chance of relapse. There are differences between inpatient rehab and residential treatment. One main difference is the environment in which treatment is provided. While inpatient rehab programs are usually carried out in a rehab facility or hospital, residential treatment is typically provided in a more home-like environment. Our featured rehab centers provide both inpatient and residential treatment programs designed specifically to fit the needs of each patient.

Those who suffer from co-occurring disorders or have a long history of addiction or relapse often benefit most from residential treatment. A structured environment with guidance, monitoring and support from treatment center staff ensures they receive the most appropriate care for their condition. There may also be a difference in cost or insurance coverage of you or your loved one chooses a residential program. Our admissions coordinators will be happy to help you find the right treatment program.

This study shows the importance of receiving professional drug and alcohol treatment for addiction. At Get Treatment, we understand the struggle of addiction, and the importance of finding a rehab program that works. Let us help you get started on the journey to lasting recovery.

What Therapies and Services are Part of a Residential Treatment Program?

Depending on the particular program, services and therapies may include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
  • Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT), also known as pharmacotherapy, which is utilized in cases of co-occurring behavioral health or mental health disorders.
  • Regular counseling/therapy sessions, both in a individual and group setting.
  • Family counseling
  • Mental health services and treatment of co-occurring disorders
  • Medical care provided by board-certified doctors and nurses
  • 12-step recovery programs
  • Social skills development and skills training
  • Holistic treatments such as arty therapy or acupuncture
  • Relapse prevention training
  • Discharge planning and aftercare support

How Long Does Residential Treatment Last?

Most residential rehab programs can range anywhere from 30 to 60 to 90 days, depending on the particular needs of the patient. It is important to note that treatment lengths vary greatly by facility, so it important to find a certified treatment center that offers a variety of program lengths.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), when an individual participates in a residential or outpatient treatment program for 90 days or more, the outcome is more successful. NIDA recommends that patients seek longer-term treatment to maintain their sobriety. Addiction treatment is the right decision, and no matter what type of program you choose, it is a positive step in the right direction.  Receiving an assessment from an addiction treatment specialist can help you find the right treatment program for your needs.

What Are The Main Goals of Residential Treatment?

Residential rehabilitation programs allow patients to addresses the emotional and environmental causes of addiction. It helps to prepare clients for a drug and alcohol-free life. Individualized treatment programs focus on cognitive, behavioral and motivational principles, with added practical and spiritual support. Relapse prevention education is also an integral part of the addiction rehabilitation process. Addiction treatment therapists help patients recognize triggers, avoid dangerous situations, and effectively cope with the challenges of daily life. Patients in residential rehab are able to fully engage in their treatment programs without the distractions of everyday life.

Why does Residential Treatment Work?

Residential treatment is often more effective than outpatient rehab because it provides patients with a safe and structured environment. Since it requires the individual to reside in the facility, it ensures that they are better able to focus fully on their recovery.

Staying in treatment for enough time to complete all stages of the program enables people to build up their knowledge and confidence in the skills they have newly acquired. These tools will help them remain sober long after they complete treatment. Therefore, a comprehensive treatment program with a multidisciplinary approach to treatment is the best option for long-term recovery.

Our residential rehab programs provide 24-hour care in a comfortable and peaceful setting. Our focus is to help you achieve your goals during treatment and maintain your sobriety long after you leave. We provide a wide range of services, which are designed to address the physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual aspects of addiction and recovery. Some of these program components include:

  • Medically supervised detoxification for the management of withdrawal symptoms – complete with medical support and 24/7 care and monitoring
  • Individual therapy with licensed psychologists and behavioral health counselors
  • Family therapy sessions and group therapy sessions
  • Relapse prevention programs that teach patients the tools and skills necessary for life after treatment
  • Follow-up addiction aftercare services such as sober living, support groups and alumni programs
