The Next Step on Your Recovery Journey

When you complete Lakeview’s Medically Monitored Detox and Inpatient Programs, you’re probably starting to feel better. Your mind, body, and spirit are on the mend. You’ve had some time to heal, feel what it’s like to be drug and alcohol free, and establish initial relationships with your primary therapist, medical team, and recovery peers. The transition to Residential Treatment gives you more space to focus on your recovery, deepen connections within the Lakeview community, and dial in the components of your individual recovery plan that work best for you.

Patients at this point in the treatment process – typically two to three weeks in – report positive progress on several levels. As the negative effects of the alcohol and/or drugs that hijacked your natural state of health and wellness begin to fade, you can expect increases in appetite, physical function, and mental clarity. Your mood may improve as your spirit emerges from the fog of addiction. These signs mean you’re on the right track, but you still have work to do. Your physiological systems are ready for more activity, and your mind is prepared to replace the old coping skills of addiction with the healthy skills of sobriety.

Under the guidance of your primary therapist, medical team, and group counselors, you maintain a full schedule of therapy, self-care, and reflection. Co-occurring disorders masked by alcohol and drugs may emerge, which can affect your treatment path. Some therapies and process groups stay consistent throughout your stay at Lakeview Health, while others will be added or dropped based on your self-reported progress, the assessment of your medical team, and the input of your primary therapist.

Daily Life in Residential Treatment

At the Residential level of care, you’ll continue to live on campus in semi-private rooms – men in The Star and women in The Rose – and receive at least six hours of structured therapy per day. Additional recovery groups, exercise, wellness activities, and social support meetings round out the schedule.

The daily schedule is basically the same as Inpatient Rehab. It begins at 8:00 am, concludes at 9:00 pm, with lights out at 11:00 pm. You eat three delicious and nutritious meals per day in gender-specific dining rooms. Healthy snacks are available between meals.

The treatment plan will also closely resemble the one you followed during Inpatient Treatment. You’ll continue with one-on-one therapy, daily 12-step meetings, medical and psychiatric care, and family sessions. What might change, depending on what’s working or not working for you, is the specific, individualized combination of the following group sessions and integrative therapies:

  • Process group
  • Psychoeducation group
  • Expressive therapy groups
  • Specialty groups
  • Trauma group
  • Spirituality group
  • Helping men recover
  • Helping women recover
  • Relapse prevention therapy group
  • Self-awareness therapy group
  • Team building and resilience group
  • Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction group
  • Pain Recovery group

Small Groups for Large Gains

In Residential Treatment, you continue with gender-specific groups. Your primary group will include five to twelve patients, while your rehab community will include twenty to twenty-four patients. These small primary groups and communities allow you to develop deep connections and form relationships with peers going through similar experiences and working through similar issues. This intimate, gender-responsive setting helps you feel comfortable communicating openly and honestly in process groups, build self-confidence, develop a strong peer support network, and focus on recovery without unnecessary distractions.

Evidenced-Based, Data-Driven Therapy

Our Residential Treatment program includes gender-responsive, trauma-informed modes of treatment tested by time and verified by decades of scientific research. You’ll participate in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Family Therapy, Psychodynamic-Oriented Psychotherapy, Gestalt Therapy, and receive the benefits Medically-Informed Psychopharmacology as needed.

These evidence-based therapies provide the structure, insight, support, and skill-building that forms a solid foundation for your sustained recovery from addiction and related mental health disorders. They teach you how to transform coping mechanisms from harmful to helpful, replace old, self-destructive habits, with new, life-affirming habits, and give you the tools you need to continue recovery journey after treatment.
