Why Choose a Residential Treatment Program?
Inpatient treatment is generally considered the highest standard of care. Patients live at the facility and participate in many different therapies and activities that help them recover. Residential treatment aims to remove someone from their addiction routine and rebuild their day to day life with structured, sober, life skills.
Individuals who choose inpatient drug or alcohol rehab have a lower chance of relapse than those in other treatment programs. This is due to the heavily structured, intense environment that residential treatment offers.
Length of Stay in Inpatient Treatment
The length of stay at our facility will depend on the individual. It is not uncommon for someone to stay at an inpatient facility for longer than 90 days, or even stay for less than 30 days. Depending on an individual’s substance use history, and if they have attended treatment before will ultimately determine their stay length.
How Does Inpatient Treatment Differ from Outpatient Treatment?
An outpatient treatment program is where a person attends treatment and therapy at the facility outside of their normal day to day activities. In this type of treatment, people can still go to work and attend to family responsibilities. They are also able to sleep in their own homes at the end of the day.
Outpatient treatment is not recommended for people that suffer from extreme addictions. However, outpatient treatment is still a very viable option for those that cannot remove themselves from their daily lives. If you are not sure what type of treatment bests suits you, you should discuss your options with one of our addiction treatment specialists.

- Grief counseling
- Weight management

Benefits of Group Therapy
Group therapy is beneficial in social skills building. Group therapy provides benefits that individual therapy cannot provide that surprises most. When therapy is in a group setting, it is developing a network of support. Knowing that others are dealing with or going through a similar situation helps bring the people of the group together and provide comfort.
All the members in the group as a team help each other deal with specific problems and come up with ways to deal with things differently. Group therapy has a way of making the people in the group put their issues into perspective.
Another group therapy benefit is the diversity of the group. Everyone has a different perspective that they add to the group. Seeing other people making positive and reassuring changes to their lives can help the group as a whole.
There are a couple of different types of group therapies. There are open groups, which basically means anyone can join at any time. In a closed group, all of the people of the group start and end at the same time.
Discuss with your mental health professional, which type would be the right one for you. Also, discuss with your mental health professionals if a larger or smaller group would be better for you.
One-on-One Counseling or Individual Psychotherapy in Residential Treatment
One-on-one counseling is where an individual, along with a mental health professional, discusses issues going on in the life of that individual. This is performed in a professional and confidential setting. This type of setting helps focus on the individual’s problems.
Individual therapy can include parenting, addiction, weight issues, personal problems within a marriage, school or work-related problems, mood disorders, personality disorders, or just goals and ambitions. There is more intimacy between the patient and the counselor in a one-on-one therapy session.
In this setting, the mental health professional walks the client through their behavioral health concerns and helps them through the process of healing. A single session is usually just under an hour. One-on-one counseling is usually more effective for depression and anxiety than medications. Individual therapy is reassuring in that the patient gets all the attention from the mental health professional.
The discussions are solely around what is going on in the patient’s life. This helps the counselor and their patient to target their individual needs so the healing process can begin. Privacy is not an issue in individual therapy. This kind of therapy works around the client’s schedule, which is another advantage to one-on-one counseling. Another advantage of individual counseling is the pace and course are set solely by the client.
Individual therapy is not just for people with mental health issues. It is also valuable for people dealing with real-life issues such as:
- Loss of a job
- Loss of a family member
- Health problems
12-step programs are programs to help people overcome their addiction. The original 12-step program was based on spiritual principles and God. Many non-religious organizations use the 12-step program to their advantage. Some of the steps are foundational, and some of the steps are utilized on a daily basis.
The 12-steps in the program
- The admittance of being powerless of the substance or situation
- God is greater, and He can restore sanity
- Turning your lives over to the power of God
- Searching for morality in our lives
- The admittance to yourself and GOD your wrongs
- Ready to have God make character changes within us
- With a humble heart, we ask God to remove shortcomings, and anything else deemed necessary
- To create a list of all the individuals, we have wronged and made peace with them
- Make direct contact and make amends to the individual that were hurt, unless it would cause injury to them or people around them
- Admittance of being wrong
- Seeking God through prayer and meditation to seek His will
- To have a spiritual awakening during these steps
Educational Group Sessions in Residential Treatment
Education is a key component to understanding addiction. Addiction cannot be terminated by willing it away. Drug and alcohol addiction changes the chemistry of the brain. These substances affect the pleasure zones in the brain and alter them. The brain adapts and alters its function of these cells.
This disease is very complex. Addiction is considered a chronic disease. Having the individuals understand that will help them go through the recovery process in a more beneficial and understanding way. Educating loved ones of the person addicted does help them understand what addiction is and help them to be more understanding and caring towards the patient.
