What is Residential Treatment
Residential rehab, also called inpatient rehab, is a type of drug and alcohol addiction treatment where patients live for weeks or months at a facility, using that time to focus on their recovery efforts.
Residential rehab is usually initiated by medical detoxification, or detox. It is often followed by “step-down” programs, such as partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient programs.
These programs offer greater independence and a less restrictive structure, as patients begin to apply the lessons they’ve learned in residential treatment to the everyday fabric of their lives.
The primary difference between residential treatment and php rehab is the commitment level required from the patient: in residential treatment, patients live on-site and can experience therapeutic activities from dawn to dusk.
Experts in addiction have well-established criteria to help you understand which type of treatment is appropriate for your condition. During residential treatment, the central goal is to teach patients how to live their lives without the use of drugs or alcohol.
To do this, treatment facilities offer high levels of medical and mental health support. Much is required of patients in a residential treatment center. They must participate in individual and group therapies on a daily basis, along with a host of other restorative activities.
This participation greatly helps patients prepare themselves to manage their worlds without the use of substances.
What’s Included In Residential Treatment for Addiction
The offerings of residential rehab centers can vary, but our residential treatment includes these elements.
Round-The-Clock Access to Medical Care
For 24 hours per day, you will be able to access a doctor, advanced practitioner or nurse. This is an important aspect of support for beginning the addiction treatment process, especially if you are in danger of withdrawal.
Regular Professional Visits
You will meet frequently with your medical providers and therapists in residential rehab, often daily. This allows you to get a sense of the physical and emotional impact of addiction. It also helps them create healing strategies, and to understand the value of their health.
During residential treatment, therapy is the mainstay of recovery efforts. In therapy, you will develop healthy bonds of trust and mutual cooperation with a therapist. With those bonds in place, you will develop insights about the behaviors and thinking patterns that lead to your addictive consequences.
You will understand your inner life more richly, develop a sense of self-awareness and get the accountability you need to ensure healthy outcomes.
A major facet of residential rehab is to help you understand how to take care of your body. Eating and behaving cleanly helps re-establish a sense of self-worth. With that in mind, healthy meals are prepared and served three times per day.
Restorative activities like yoga, exercise, and pottery can help you rediscover your passions. They can help you establish a sense of belonging, and promote positive habits of self-care.
Who Attends Residential Rehab
Most people who attend residential rehab have common qualities:
- A history of losing control a drug or alcohol use
- Active need for help with a substance abuse problem
- Completion of a medical detox
Residential Drug Rehabilitation
Our residential treatment helps people with drug addiction to heal their bodies and minds. Addiction is often accompanied by withdrawal symptoms, and in residential rehab, you will work with medical professionals to reduce withdrawal consequences.
As you deal with the physical consequences, you can begin to focus on your recovery in an environment without distraction, and can get support from other people committed to the process of recovery.
How Long Does Residential Rehab Last
Every person and every addiction is different. Some people need more time in treatment than others.
Longer days may be appropriate when you have unique needs, and the longer you are in treatment, the greater your chances of long-term abstinence.
During inpatient programs, treatment focuses on three primary aspects of care: the management of substance withdrawal, creating support through therapy and establishing a continuous care plan.
If you have more complex recovery needs, long term treatment program may be more appropriate. Our long term program includes increased medical support and mental health treatment. It may be more suitable if you have co-occurring mental health disorders or other complicating factors.
In some cases a longer term treatment program may be most helpful if you have a history of multiple relapses, or if you have significant medical complications from your substance abuse. This type of long-term recovery offers a comprehensive treatment approach that can help even the most complex cases of addiction to achieve better recovery prospects.
A day in Residential Rehab
During a typical day in residential rehab, you will wake up, shower and get ready to attend your therapy sessions. After breakfast, you may have a group therapy exercise which lasts two hours.
Following breakfast the group will have a one-hour yoga session, followed by lunch. After lunch, you will meet with an addiction psychiatrist to discuss treatment of depression or anxiety.
Following that meeting, you will have a recreational therapy activity, such a swimming or hiking. Then you will meet with an individual therapist, followed by dinner.
After dinner some free time to relax and reflect on your day. After that, an on-site 12 step meeting with your housemates and then more free time before it is time for bed.
