Is Residential Addiction Treatment Right for You?
Residential addiction treatment is an ideal option for many people who struggle with a substance use disorder. As you consider whether you would benefit from inpatient or outpatient care, consider the following:
- Have you struggled with staying sober in the past and relapsed?
- Do you have a co-occurring mental health diagnosis?
- Are you uncertain about the reliability and availability of a sober support network at home?
- Is there some flexibility in your schedule and life regarding work, family, and other responsibilities?
If you answered yes to some or all of the above questions, you are likely an ideal candidate for residential addiction treatment.
Benefits of Residential Treatment
Residential treatment provides the most intensive level of care for those who have significant addiction and relapse history. In addition, if you have co-occurring disorders, more than one substance addiction, or underlying physical challenges, you may benefit from residential treatment.
At a residential addiction treatment program like PAATC, you will experience continuous care, 24 hours a day, provided by skilled, highly trained, professional therapists, medical practitioners, and support staff. The benefits of residential treatment include:
- Medically supervised detox
- An individualized and coordinated plan that includes a comprehensive list of services
- Round the clock access to compassionate care and support
- A peer group on the same journey to support you
- Momentum and stability to sustain sobriety post-discharge
- The best chance for a positive long-term outcome
- A feeling of trust, security, and community as you begin recovery
What Is Residential Rehab at PAATC?
People who enroll in residential treatment can do a short-term program that usually lasts about 30 days or engage in long-term treatment between 90 and 180 days. Residential addiction treatment has the best overall long-term outcomes largely due to the continuum of care provided in a coordinated approach by multiple practitioners.
When you are in residence at PAATC’s addiction treatment program, you have access to a wide range of services. Your recovery starts with a medically supervised detox to help you safely go through withdrawal.
Once you are in post-detox treatment, you will participate in a range of individual and group treatment and support opportunities. Some of those include:
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- Family therapy
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
- 12-step support meetings
- Faith-based treatment
- Post-discharge aftercare
While you are in residence, you will be surrounded round the clock by people who understand what you are going through. Some of those people will be therapists, counselors, and medical practitioners. Some will be coaches, group leaders, and support staff. Still, others will be in recovery just like you, who started their recovery journey in a residential program at PAATC.
