What is Residential Treatment for Addiction?
Drug and alcohol addiction are chronic diseases, so it is important they are treated as such. For most people suffering from addiction, detox and inpatient rehab provides a wonderful start to achieving sobriety and beginning the path to lifelong recovery. Inpatient rehab is an important first step in treatment that allows a complete focus on safe withdrawal from drugs and alcohol, education on the disease of addiction, and the development of strategies to continue in ongoing recovery.
With top medical professionals, evidence-based treatment, and a full continuum of care, you can rest assured you and your loved ones are on the right track towards recovery.
What to Expect at a Residential Treatment Center
During an inpatient treatment stay, patients who are dependent on drugs or alcohol typically start with a medical detoxification process through which we work to detox the body from drugs and alcohol in a safe, comfortable manner. Ongoing residential or inpatient care then provides a structured environment centered around individual, group, and families as well as educational, art and music sessions, and community sessions.
Patients also receive psychiatric, nutritional, spiritual and other services when needed. A highly qualified team administers these sessions including master-level clinicians, therapists, social workers, case managers, medical professionals like nurses, nurse practitioners and doctors.
Our complete continuum of care provides patients with the necessary structure to combat addiction and prevent relapse:
- Medically-Monitored Detox: 3-9 Days and 24-hour medical monitoring
- Inpatient Treatment: 30-40 Days
- Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP): 2-4 weeks, 3-5 days a week, 4-5 hours a day
- Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): 4-6 weeks, 2-5 days a week, 2-3 hours a day
Our community-focused Alumni Program adds a layer of support. Even before patients leave our facilities, they are introduced to a community of those in recovery to build new relationships that will support their goals.
Benefits of Residential Treatment
Inpatient treatment encourages patients to focus on their treatment and recovery by removing outside distractions and fully immersing them in the process of getting well.

Your Recovery is Our Top Priority
The outcome of drug and alcohol treatment depends on a person engaging in treatment and continuing for the clinically recommended period. Changing the behavior of addiction is no mean feat, so it is crucial that patients are fully engaged in their treatment and recovery, and have strong family support.
Upon leaving inpatient rehab, patients who continue in the time frame for these programs can vary on the severity of the addiction and other psychosocial problems to address, but outpatient care that continues for a full year has the highest success rate. The different levels of outpatient care can each last anywhere from 30 days to 9-12 months for once a week, a general outpatient. Combining inpatient and outpatient treatment offers the best chance at achieving and maintaining long-term recovery from addiction.
Like other chronic diseases, recovery from drug and alcohol addiction requires ongoing attention. Our full continuum of care and strong alumni network means once you leave our facility, you will have a plan in place and you will be connected to a caring community that will help you stay in and enjoy your recovery.
