Why Choose Residential Treatment Versus Outpatient?

Inpatient and residential rehabilitation programs provide a safe and secure environment to delve into recovery and healing.

Substances and the daily stresses that may trigger use are far removed, lessening the chance of use or relapse, allowing foundational treatment to occur.

Most day to day concerns such as meals, schedules, and life maintenance errands are taken care of by the facility, allowing clients to focus solely on recovery. In addition, participants are surrounded by a supportive community of professionals and peers working toward healthy living.

Mental Health Treatment Options

Depression Treatment

Depression is more than just feeling down for a few days — symptoms are long lasting and can affect you in many ways.

Anxiety & Bi-Polar Treatment

Anxiety disorders are thought patterns of fear, dread, and uneasiness that affect other aspects of your life.

Trauma & PTSD Treatment

Trauma is the emotional response to a specific event like an accident, sexual abuse, or a natural disaster.

ADHD & Borderline Personality Disorder Treatment

ADHD is marked by difficulty focusing, controlling impulsive behaviors, and over-activity.

Importance of Dual-diagnosis Care

Many people struggling with addiction or substance use have turned to substances as a coping method for an underlying mental health issue.

As a result, inpatient care settings that are equipped to provide co-occurring or dual-diagnosis care are often preferred.

The best residential rehabs and inpatient programs have a psychiatrists and licensed mental health professionals on staff to provide mental health evaluations and ongoing clinical support to help address the underlying mental health needs. This attention to co-occurring disorders allows for a more effective recovery plan to ensure sustainable recovery is achieved.

Healthy living without substance abuse and addiction is possible. Inpatient and Residential Rehabilitation programs can be the foundation that begins the journey to a successful and long lasting recovery.

Who is Inpatient Care for?

People in a crisis situation, with a high level of concern for their safety, those experiencing chemical detoxification, or those struggling to function independently tend to benefit most from Inpatient Care.

The high level of structure and support is ideal for those beginning on the road to recovery or those for whom less supportive care systems have been ineffective. Clients with severe safety or addiction concerns can sometimes be admitted to a hospital first for detox and then be transferred to another facility for inpatient treatment. Inpatient and Rehabilitation Care organizations provide the highest levels of support, with professionals available around the clock for support.
