When it comes to substance use or mental health disorders, sometimes you need more. More intensive medical attention. More time to away from outside triggers. More day-to-day structure. And while our P.A.T.H. programs offer a variety of unique treatment options for a population of unique individuals, we also understand our outpatient services may not be the right choice for you right now.
Let’s explore why residential rehab is necessary and the range of treatments available to you.
Why Residential Treatment?
Residential treatment centers focus on a few key elements. These include:
- Providing you with highly structured support
- Education about your mental health or substance use disorder
- Learning how to effectively cope and manage your substance use or mental health disorder
- Creating a solid aftercare plan
When you or a loved one struggles with a substance use disorder, drinking problem, or a mental health condition, it can leave you feeling isolated, alone and overwhelmed. Addiction and mental health disorders are like any chronic diseases, meaning that it progresses and worsens without help.
Inpatient treatment programs typically last for up to 28 days and may also provide medically supervised detox services. Some inpatient therapy programs offer long-term stays, which can last for more than 90 days. These programs usually have 24-hour medical staff and on-staff psychiatrists, which is vital, no matter if you are working through addiction, a mental health disorder or a co-occurring disorder.
Your residential treatment team will construct a detailed aftercare and discharge plan and set you up with follow-up care before leaving.
The two main types of treatment options for substance use and mental health disorders are inpatient and outpatient treatment. Both inpatient and outpatient treatments offer evidence-based and holistic therapies, such as:
- Experiential therapy
- Cognitive and dialectic behavioral therapy
- Mindfulness and meditation practice
- Art and music therapy
Whether or not you need inpatient or outpatient care depends on your initial diagnostic assessment results. At P.A.T.H., we can help you better understand your outpatient treatment options as you leave residential care and move on to the next phase of your healing experience.
We Can Help You Find The Right Residential Treatment Center
At P.A.T.H, we want you to have as many treatment options available to you as possible. But we also understand that recovery is not always linear. Our program works best for those looking to step-down from a higher level of care to help transition toward independent living or as a step-up in the intensity of services when traditional outpatient therapy does not provide enough structure or support.
If you decide you need a higher level of care at any point, we have your back. We will refer you to our family of residential treatment centers to help ensure that you are always supported wherever you are in your recovery journey.
An inpatient residential treatment program provides structured activities throughout the day, which can include:
- Psychotherapy program
- Group therapy program
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy
- Dialectical behavioral therapy
- Family therapy program
