What is Residential Rehab and what does it entail?
Residential rehab requires a 1 to 3-month commitment to stay at an inpatient facility for the agreed-upon period of time. It is an intensive rehab program that includes one on one therapy with an addiction therapist where you will explore the root of your addiction. You will also have group therapy with other recovering addicts. You will have activities that will help you find interests and build healthy habits that will help later in your recovery.
What happens during residential rehab treatment and why is it effective?
The main reason residential rehab is effective is the commitment to the facility, and usually the longer the stay in rehab the better the result. The commitment to the facility ensures there is no relapse or temptation, or triggers that can derail your recovery as long as you are there. This allows you time to deal with your addiction and heal. It gives you time to get through therapy and build more healthy habits that can help you deal with the temptations you will face in the real world.
Spending time with your fellow residents will also help you build lasting relationships and a better support system, as well as find people that may have similar interests in building better habits once you transition back to the real world. You will need new friends and associates that are not the same old addicts you may have been hanging out with before rehab.
Is Residential rehab the right choice?
There is no right choice for rehab, but residential rehab is the most effective choice in most situations. You will be able to concentrate all of your effort on recovery and avoid stressors, triggers, and temptations. The treatment you will get will be the most intensive available, all negative distractions will be eliminated inside the facility. This will help you get the most out of treatment.
There are situations where residential rehab isn’t an option such as not being able to commit because of work or family responsibilities. Outpatient programs could be more effective in these cases because some treatment is better than no treatment. PHP and IOP programs are good options if residential rehab is too much of a commitment.
