What is Residential Treatment?
Our residential treatment programs offer clients a safe, homelike environment to heal where they can reside throughout the duration of their addiction treatment program, with the benefit of 24/7 access to medical professionals and addiction specialists. Also known as an inpatient treatment program, a residential program addresses the physical and psychological causes and effects of substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders with treatment methods that integrate evidence-based clinical interventions, use of evidence-based medications (if required and prescribed by the attending physician), and holistic therapies. Treatment length depends on each individual case, and as directed by the center's clinical and medical team, and typically can range from 30 to 90 days.
Residential treatment may come after onsite detox or after completion at an offsite clinical partner in the local area community. In some cases, individuals will start treatment in an inpatient setting and not require (medically supervised) detox.
Who Needs Residential Treatment?
Residential treatment is highly recommended for those suffering with substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders who are ready to begin recovering from addiction or addictive behaviors. Each person has unique needs and requirements in addiction treatment, but generally, an individual should consider a residential treatment program for addiction if he or she:
- Is trying to become sober for the first time
- Does not yet have the experience or tools necessary to go through everyday tasks and responsibilities without giving in to his/her addictive substance or behavior
- Has a severe addiction and may require medical detox
- Is a threat to others and/or has a troubling home life
- Has or may have a co-occurring mental health disorder
- Has not had success with outpatient treatment programs or support groups in the past
Why Begin Residential Treatment with Sunspire Health?
We treat each individual who enters our residential program with a personalized approach to care, meeting them where they are at and providing them with the evidence-based treatment methods and services that best suit the requirements of their medical history, lifestyle and family of choice.
At every Sunspire Health center, each client has a multidisciplinary team of Board Certified addiction specialists assigned to them who will design an individualized treatment program that addresses the underlying causes of addiction and provides the tools and support necessary to lead a life in long-term recovery.
A busy daily schedule keeps clients on track and focused on recovery while the comfortable, homelike environment of our centers will offer the ideal setting for them to heal and recuperate physical, mental and emotional strength to successfully complete the treatment program.
In our residential treatment program patients can expect:
- Individual and group counseling sessions, addressing the clients' needs and personal experiences
- Board Certified medical professionals and addiction specialists who will design an individualized recovery plan and monitor progress
- Psychoeducational workshops and presentations in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
- The development of essential sober living tools and skills
- A high ratio of therapists to patients for personalized, specialized care
- Daily meals and transportation services provided
- Medication-assisted treatment support available, if necessary
What happens after successfully completing a Residential Treatment Program?
When a patient at Sunspire Health has successfully completed the residential treatment program, it means that the case manager and addiction specialists overseeing the patient's progress have determined that he or she is prepared to embark on a new life in recovery outside of the center. The next step is to transition back to normal life, returning to loved ones and careers while continuing to heal.
All clients at Sunspire Health centers will leave residential treatment with an aftercare plan in place. For some, this may mean the additional care of a Partial Hospitalization Program in which they attend therapy sessions 5-7 days per week for most of the day to continue recovery maintenance in a more structured setting. For other individuals, they may be prescribed an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) with ongoing therapy sessions 3-4 days per week and the option of living at home to integrate back to daily life.
It is integral to have a support system in place following treatment. For some, support from loved ones can be enough to help them stay on track in recovery, but it is recommended that patients leaving a residential program at least join a local recovery support group to establish a network of others who are working to maintain a sober lifestyle as well.
