Addiction treatment for drugs and alcohol will require a person to abstain from use. Inpatient residential is one level of care offered where a patient will live at the treatment center for a designated amount of time.
Inpatient Residential Overview
During an inpatient residential stay, patients reside at the facility in semi-private rooms and participate in a variety of therapeutic sessions. Treatment will include, but is not limited to:
- One on one therapy
- Group therapy, including process, psychoeducation, and expressive therapy groups
- Attend daily 12-step meetings
- Medical and psychiatric care as needed
- Family sessions (via phone)
The inpatient residential program encompasses evidence-based therapies such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), Family Therapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Gestalt Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), to name a few.
Evidence-based therapies provide the structure and skill-building that form a solid foundation for those who struggle with addiction and related mental health issues to transform their coping mechanisms from harmful to helpful. This positions people for greater potential to continue their recovery journey outside of a treatment environment.
Inpatient Residential Community
Patients are divided into gender-responsive primary groups and teams, which means that men and women are in completely separate programs. Each primary group includes about 10-12 patients and teams have 20-24 total patients. Although the whole community may be large, we believe that by keeping the primary groups and teams small, patients can begin to develop relationships with other men or women who are going through a similar experience. This can help patients feel more comfortable opening up in group settings, build their self-confidence, develop a peer support network, and ultimately aid in their focus on their own recovery.
