The 2017 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) reported that 19.7 million American citizens, aged 12 or older, were suffering from a substance use disorder. About 14.5 million individuals were dealing with an alcohol use problem while about 7.5 million were struggling with illicit drug use.

Unfortunately, millions of people throughout the United States are continuing to be affected by substance use disorders. Countless individuals are struggling with alcoholism and drug dependence. Families are constantly being exposed to the pain that comes with addiction. 

Thankfully, however, there’s a way to end the substance abuse epidemic that has been spreading throughout the country for years. Residential treatment programs, like the one we offer here at Sana Lake Recovery Center, are providing hope to individuals and families alike. 

What is a Residential Treatment Program?

When it comes to getting treatment for substance abuse and addiction, many people are unsure about where to start. It can be difficult to know where to begin when you are looking for a way to change your life for the better. Addiction can cause major challenges in a person’s life and it often takes professional guidance in order to bring this problem to an end. Residential treatment is one of the treatment approaches through which professionals can help those who are suffering from substance abuse.

Drug and alcohol abuse are both very serious problems. Sometimes, individuals who struggle with these issues may have trouble ending substance use in their lives because of their environment. For example, an individual who suffers from an addiction problem may be enabled by a friend or significant other. Or, perhaps the individual’s family members are also dealing with alcohol or drug abuse. As a result of the person’s environment, it can be hard for him or her to break free from the bondage of addiction.

Sometimes, in order to overcome substance abuse, individuals must distance themselves from the negative influences around them. This is where residential treatment comes in.

Also called inpatient treatment, residential programs offer patients an approach to recovery that allows them to overcome addiction in an environment that is free from drugs and alcohol. Those who are seeking to end addiction in their lives can do so by actually living at their treatment facility, rather than receiving treatment during the day and then returning to environments which could cause them to relapse. 

Residential addiction treatment is not a permanent living arrangement but it does offer people a temporary safe haven while they are working to detox from drug and alcohol use. Then, patients can continue their recovery journey through various individual and group therapy approaches, which will equip them with relapse prevention skills.

The Difference Between Outpatient and Residential Treatment?

Outpatient treatment is different from residential treatment in that it does not require individuals to live at their rehabilitation center. So, patients can return home after receiving treatment during the day. This kind of treatment can be beneficial for those who may have to work or attend school. Sometimes, individuals who have family responsibilities or other duties to carry out may find outpatient treatment to be the best option for them.

However, many individuals may need to receive treatment in a more structured setting. Some individuals who suffer from addiction benefit from receiving guidance and treatment without having to deal with the challenges of life outside of treatment. Through residential programs, patients can get the help they need first before transitioning back into “normal” life on the other side of addiction treatment.

Understanding the Many Benefits of Residential Treatment Programs

One of the main advantages of residential treatment programs has already been discussed. It’s certainly true that individuals who go through an inpatient treatment program can receive the help they need in a safe environment, away from the negative influences of their homes. They can get treatment without having to worry about having access to drugs or alcohol. This eliminates distractions, discomfort, and fear, which can definitely prevent people from moving forward on the road to recovery.

You Are Worth More

When a person enrolls in an inpatient treatment program, he or she can expect to:

  • Feel safe and free from distractions.
  • Have an emotional support system.
  • Have constant guidance to help prevent relapse.
  • Receive professional and medical assistance, 24/7.
  • Be surrounded by like-minded people, all working towards recovery.

Individuals who are seeking to recover from the effects of addiction in their lives may struggle to find people who will support them in their journey. Often, family members or close friends also need healing as their addicted loved ones get help for substance abuse. So, it can be difficult for them to offer the emotional and mental support that their loved one needs. 

Fortunately, residential treatment programs allow patients to get the kind of support and guidance that will help them to stay motivated and engaged throughout their treatment process. Various types of group therapy can help people to interact with other patients as well as professional and understanding therapists. Through these relationships, individuals can receive helpful information about recovery. 

Residential treatment is especially helpful in that it offers patients an atmosphere that is specially and specifically designed to meet the needs of recovery. So, those who opt for inpatient treatment can find hope and comfort in knowing that they will be heard and understood as they go through the recovery process.
