Residential Treatment

What is a Residential Treatment Program?

How do residential treatment programs differ from inpatient treatment?

Residential programs are designed for longer stays than inpatient treatment. A typical stay in a residential treatment facility ranges from 30 days to 90 days, but this can vary depending on an individual’s needs, the program’s approach, and their progress during treatment.

Inpatient care is typically provided in a hospital setting with high-level security and round-the-clock medical monitoring. Residential treatment takes place in a non-hospital setting, often a large home or residential campus with access to nature and outdoor activities.

Residential programs typically offer a variety of care services, including individualized treatment plans, medication management, life skills training, and recreational activities. 

Typically, the goal of inpatient treatment is to address an immediate medical or psychiatric crisis and to ensure that the individual in care is stable and not at risk of harming themselves or someone else. Residential treatment provides access to 24-hour care and supervision while also emphasizing long-term recovery. Treatment and therapy are focused on helping individuals build life skills, establish coping mechanisms, and address deeply rooted issues that contribute to their substance abuse or mental health issues.

Who Can Benefit from Residential Treatment?

Residential treatment can help people struggling with a range of issues:

Substance Use Disorders

Residential addiction treatment helps people address the symptoms and causes of alcohol addiction, drug addiction, or process/behavioral addictions. Residential programs help people experiencing substance use disorders to gain vital coping skills and establish the groundwork for recovery in a safe, secure environment.

Mental Health Disorders

Residential mental health treatment helps individuals struggling with serious or complex psychiatric disorders. Commonly treated conditions include depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, schizophrenia, and more. 

Co-Occuring Conditions

Residential care for dual diagnosis provides specialized, integrated treatment for people suffering from co-occurring substance use disorder and mental illness. 

Residential programs are recommended for people who require a higher level of care than outpatient treatment or individual therapy can provide. This is often due to the severity of their symptoms, the complexity of their diagnoses, or because they haven’t responded well to less intensive treatment methods. Residential programs are most helpful for those who need a supportive and stable environment where they can focus solely on their recovery.
