Short-Term Inpatient Treatment
Even a short-term residential program can set addicts up for success. The ability to focus on recovery in a residential setting is a great benefit. However, not everyone can manage a long-term inpatient protocol. That’s why there are options that provide the benefit of inpatient care while offering a plan more compatible with busy lives.
Three key benefits of short-term residential treatment include:
- It is a more affordable option while still offering intensive focus.
- Less time away from home is demanded of the student, and thus there is less disruption to work, family, and other personal responsibilities.
- It establishes a “new normal” that is harder to achieve outside the residential space. For example, those who suffer learn how to organize their days without drugs as a focal point, better nutrition and wellness habits, and what it is like to depend on a supportive recovery community that can continue beyond the inpatient program.
If you’re unsure whether short-term inpatient care is the right treatment option for you, reach out to Pennsylvania Adult and Teen Challenge today.
Residential Treatment And Monitored Care
At PAATC, each person’s care starts with medically monitored detox. Our medical professionals will supervise the individual’s detox and recovery to ensure that they can obtain successful, long-term sobriety in the safest way possible.
Inpatient care provides momentum to the recovery process and readies patients to continue treatment on an outpatient basis once the residential program ends. It has been shown that people with substance use disorder are in a more stable place for ongoing recovery with an inpatient program than people who have only experienced outpatient treatment, or none at all.
The Role Of Therapy And Counseling In Treatment
The ongoing recovery process is almost always going to include some form of therapy or counseling. Once the physical dependence and cravings have been eliminated, the underlying emotional and psychological factors that play out in addiction need to be addressed.
Therapy helps those struggling with addiction cope with the triggers, whether psychological or social, that can lead to relapses such as stress and sudden life changes, environmental cues, and social pressures.
Therapy also can mitigate the ongoing or recurring urge to use again. A productive therapeutic relationship offers support and teaches skills for managing pitfalls that are a normal part of life—but without drugs or alcohol.

A short-term residential treatment program is excellent for establishing the benefits of counseling and getting it underway before the patient returns to life at home. The continuation of care is more likely to succeed when it starts in an inpatient setting. We offer a range of treatment options, including:
- Alcohol addiction treatment
- Heroin addiction treatment
- Cocaine addiction treatment
- Opioid addiction treatment
- Prescription drug addiction treatment
Many patients find it easier to stay motivated in a short-term program, knowing there is an end-date in thirty days.
