There is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to addiction treatment programs. Individuals battling less severe substance use disorders often require a less intensive level of care than those whose addiction issues are more severe. For individuals in the latter category, residential treatment may be the best option.
At Liberty Health Services, we offer a variety of residential treatment options for those struggling with addiction. Our programs are designed to meet the unique needs of each individual, providing the level of care necessary to help them overcome their addiction and build a foundation for long-term recovery.
What Is Residential Treatment for Addiction?
Residential treatment for addiction is a live-in, structured treatment program that provides 24-hour care and support for those struggling with addiction. Residential treatment programs typically last 30-90 days, though some may be shorter or longer depending on the needs of the individual.
Residential treatment often begins with medically supervised detoxification, sometimes referred to simply as “detox.” This process helps the individual safely and effectively withdraw from the substances they are addicted to. Once detox is complete, the individual will begin participating in various treatment modalities designed to help them overcome their addiction.
The Residential Addiction Treatment Program at Liberty Health Services
During residential treatment at Liberty Health Services, individuals receive comprehensive care and support as they work to overcome their addiction. Some of the programs and services we offer in the residential treatment program at Liberty Health include:
- Individual counseling, group counseling, and family counseling
- Substance use education, including strategies for avoiding substance use triggers and relapse, and motivational enhancement and strategies for achieving genuine, lasting sobriety
- Life skills training that includes anger management, communication skills, employability skills, problem-solving, relapse prevention, recovery training, decision-making, relationship skills, and symptom management
- Non-verbal and holistic therapies, including recreation therapy, art therapy, music therapy, and dance/movement therapy that provide clients with alternative means of self-expression and problem resolution
- Training and advice regarding health and medical issues, particularly health problems related to substance use
- Employment or educational support services that assist clients in becoming financially independent
- Transportation services to clients who are involved in activities or in need of services that are provided at other facilities
We also provide a suite of mental health services to manage stabilized clients with underlying mental health disorders, evaluate clients’ needs for in-depth mental health assessment, and train them to manage their mental health symptoms. In cases where clients exhibit mental health conditions that are not accompanied by addiction issues—or when primary mental health issues emerge during treatment—we provide timely referrals to an appropriate provider.
The Benefits of Residential Treatment
There are many benefits to participating in a residential treatment program for addiction, some of which include:
A Safe and Supportive Environment
One of the most important aspects of residential treatment is its safe and supportive environment. This is especially important for individuals who have been using substances for a long time and may be coming from chaotic or otherwise unsafe living situations.
24/7 Access to Care
Another key benefit of residential treatment is that it provides individuals with around-the-clock access to care. This is important for those who need more support and supervision than what can be provided in an outpatient setting.
Improved Physical and Mental Health
Residential treatment can also lead to improved physical and mental health. This is due to the fact that individuals in residential treatment have access to comprehensive medical and psychological care.
Increased Opportunities for Success
Finally, research has shown that individuals who participate in residential treatment are more likely to achieve long-term sobriety than those who do not receive any treatment at all.
