Is Residential Addiction Treatment Right for You?

addiction treatment

Inpatient or residential treatment may be just what you need to heal from addiction and rebuild your life.

Drug or alcohol addiction can literally ruin your life and leave you with nowhere else to turn. You feel helpless and hopeless, alone and defeated—but there’s always help! Determining whether residential addiction treatment is the right choice for your recovery needs can be challenging but with proper education and guidance you can make the decision to get the help that you need.

For those who suffer from drug or alcohol addiction that is characterized by heavy withdrawal symptoms and strong cravings, residential addiction treatment can provide an essential level of monitoring and supportive care that helps to improve overall chances of recovery while facilitating a safe, controlled detox. Here’s a look at how you can determine whether residential addiction treatment is the right choice for your needs:

Safe

According to Mclean Hospital, a Harvard Medical School Affiliate, residential treatment provides a full range of services including assessment, therapy, training, education and pharmacotherapy that come together to provide the patient with a safe and controlled environment in which recovery can take place. There are no illicit drugs in residential addiction treatment, you are monitored 24 hours a day, and your safety is of utmost concern.

Encouraging

Residential addiction treatment removes you from the illicit nature of your everyday drug abusing life and places you in a controlled environment that is encouraging. If you use drugs with friends or family members, if you don’t have a lot of support at home or if you simply lack the encouragement necessary to get sober, residential addiction treatment is a good starting point for you. Here you will find that the negative factors that influence your drug use are removed and you can focus on recovery.

Relationship Building

Patients often stress over group meetings at first; they don’t want to share their problems with people that they don’t know. However, as time goes on, most develop healthy relationships in residential treatment and these relationships often flourish for many years outside of treatment too. If you have experienced relationship struggles, violence, abuse or other trauma in your relationships outside of treatment, residential addiction treatment is a good place to begin to pick up the pieces and learn how to build new, healthy relationships in recovery.

Intense

Nobody said that residential addiction treatment would be a walk in the park! It’s not going to be easy to make the changes that are asked of you and you may want to give up at times—but the intense support, therapy, education and guidance that is provided to you in residential addiction treatment will greatly improve your chances of making a full, lasting recovery from this disease.
