Residential treatment essentially means a drug rehab program that offers treatment for drug addiction and alcoholism in a stand alone building. Clients who attend the residential treatment program will ordinarily live in the facility 24 hours per day during their treatment period. The treatment period usually lasts anywhere between 30 days and 6 months but in some cases up to 1 year.The residential treatment facility will usually be also considered in-patient and there should be health care professionals of some type administering the program and monitoring the clients safety for the entire 24 hour period of the day.
Residential treatment is the preferred environment for really getting clean and sober because other settings such as out patient drug rehab and walk in counseling services leave the person to fend for themselves when not on the program. In the residential setting the client is allowed an extended period of time completely removed from the local environment to detach and engulf themselves in their treatment and recovery.
Residential Treatment Programs
Residential programs vary in quality, location, physical surroundings and treatment modality. For this reason it is a good idea to get help analyzing the differences in facilities to narrow down the search to the best possible combination making success more readily attainable.
By checking the published success rate as well as reading and hearing testimonials from former clients it is possible to gauge how successful the treatment will be.
