What Aspects of Residential Treatment Are Most Important?

Residential treatment programs are unlike any other type of addiction recovery program because they involve complete immersion in the recovery world. With access to a healthcare team 24/7, clients can find peace and serenity in focusing on their own happiness, health, and total well-being. Too often, responsibilities associated with work and home can add more stress to recovery, which is already a nerve-wracking endeavor to begin with. If you’ve decided to partake in residential treatment, know that you’ve made a great choice and with professionals who truly care about your recovery journey, you’ll be able to work towards getting your life back to where you want it to be.

If you’ve decided to move forward with a reputable residential treatment program, what are the most important components to look out for?

In 2016, a study published in the journal Substance Abuse Rehabilitation involved the analysis of 10 studies with participants in recovery. They found that peer support was strongly linked to substance use, treatment engagement, HIV risk, cravings and more. Much of this has to do with perceived stress – the more people we have to include in our recovery support network, the less stress we’re likely to have because we don’t feel so alone in tackling all of life’s obstacles. Reputable treatment centers will provide opportunities for you to learn from others, especially in support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA).

Just a few years ago, the Huffington Post highlighted 2 additional aspects of recovery that are vital: 1 on 1 support, and family support. Each day in residential treatment will provide you with the structure you need to focus on healing, but 1 on 1 support gives you an opportunity to learn more about yourself while developing the tools you need to push past triggers, cravings, and setbacks. In addition to this, family healing services greatly help loved ones as they navigate these changes as well – if you’re in search of treatment that’s comprehensive, make sure you are provided with the opportunity to learn from these areas of recovery.
