Why Residential Drug Treatment Works
Substance abuse is a chronic disease with relapse rates around 40-60%. Data shows that relapse rates are on par with other chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension and asthma. Residential drug treatment programs can help prevent relapse through:
Medical detox – Substance use treatment centers provide 24/7 medical care during drug detox. These treatment programs use research-backed medications to relieve drug cravings and painful withdrawal symptoms. Drug addicts who have a comfortable detox are less likely to relapse on drugs and alcohol. This is because they don’t need drugs to stave off withdrawal and urges to use substances.
Substance abuse specialists – Our treatment teams have special training in addiction and co-occurring mental health issues. We can help you address the reasons behind your substance abuse. Our addiction specialists draw on the latest scientific research. This allows us to use the most effective therapies, such as cognitive behavioral therapies, motivational interviewing and family therapy, to get to the root cause of addiction.
Psychiatric care – Over half of people with addictions also have mental health disorders like anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder or mood disorders. In residential drug Residential, you’ll receive regular psychiatric care for co-occurring disorders.
Peer support – Having a support network of sober peers is a powerful tool in preventing relapse. Sharing with others helps combat the shame and isolation that often come with substance abuse.
Relapse prevention – Everyday triggers will still be around when you leave drug and alcohol treatment. That’s why an important part of Residential drug Treatment is learning recovery skills you can use after treatment. Inpatient drug Treatment gives you time to develop relapse prevention skills so you’re prepared for challenges in recovery.
