4 Components of Residential Treatment That Anyone in Recovery Can Benefit From

4 Components of Residential Treatment That Anyone in Recovery Can Benefit From

The first and most challenging step of recovery is seeking help, and that’s where a lot of research comes into play. As a person entering treatment with doubts, fears, worries and concerns, you naturally want to select an option that will give you as much support, structure – and comfort – as possible. When approached with multiple treatment options, residential treatment is an option that some people neglect to consider because it involves a very solid, foundational change in a person’s life. If you’re currently exploring your treatment options, don’t put residential treatment to the side just yet – because there are many benefits that come with it.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) notes that there are several areas that need to be addressed in order for a person to have a successful recovery: health and wellness, a stable living environment, purpose, and a supportive network. Reputable residential treatment centers will address all of these needs and more; as The Fix noted in 2014, the right treatment center should provide some much-needed resources for those in recovery, such as:

·    Personalized therapy – tailored to an individual’s needs

·    Relapse-prevention – strategies for working through cravings, triggers and more, as well as establishing a comfortable environment where a person is less likely to feel triggered

·    Detoxification assistance – through medication and/or holistic practices

·    Follow-up treatment – to ensure a person continues to be supported even after formal treatment has ended

The structure and environment provided in a residential treatment center makes it much easier for those in recovery to work through a variety of components that make up their holistic journey; for example, a 2015 study published in the Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment confirmed that exercise – which is often promoted in residential treatment programs – helps alleviate symptoms of depression, stress, anxiety and more for those in recovery.
