Residential Addiction Treatment Centers West Palm Beach

What is Residential Addiction Treatment?

Residential alcohol and drug rehab programs are a good option for West Palm Beach residents with significant recovery needs. Residential addiction treatment centers provide a setting where patients can relax and focus entirely on their healing. This is a good step for many to really immerse themselves in recovery and ensure long-term sobriety. Unlike outpatient recovery programs, people stay at the facility and do not return home or work during treatment.

While some individuals are successful with outpatient programs, others with more severe or long-term addictions may need inpatient or residential care. A residential program can include counseling and behavioral health services, as well as medications and even holistic forms of therapy. 24-hour supervision provides plenty of support from staff and peers. It is a good option for those who would have a difficult time maintaining their sobriety at home or do not have a supportive home environment.

Residential treatment is a good option for people who:

  • Have co-occurring mental or medical disorders that contributed to their addiction
  • Have experienced recurring relapses
  • Have severe substance use disorders

Residential treatment can include:

  • Short-term residential treatment programs (Less than 30 days)
  • Long-term residential treatment program (lasting 6 to 12 months)
  • Sober living homes

Residential addiction treatment not only helps individuals safely through the detox and withdrawal process but also helps create a foundation for successful, long-term sobriety.

How Long Does Residential Addiction Treatment Last?

There is a wide range of residential addiction treatment lengths, from short-term, lasting less than 30 days, to long-term that can be from 90 to 120 and 180 days. It all depends on the individual, the severity of their addiction, and any underlying issues that led to their addiction. Length of time depends on:

  • The person’s detox needs
  • Whether or not there are any underlying mental health disorders
  • The person’s health history – including any history of recurrent relapses
  • An individual’s specific physical, medical, and psychological needs
  • Level of care determined by medical staff
  • Type of substance abused

Although studies show that longer periods of treatment improve outcomes for long-term sobriety, any length of treatment program is beneficial. A residential treatment program not only helps a person abstain from using substances but also helps them learn new skills to apply to their everyday lives outside the program.

What Happens in Residential Rehab for Alcohol and Drugs?

Usually, the first task when entering addiction treatment is going through detox. At a residential rehab like The Healing Place, that will include a medically supported detox. The withdrawal process can be challenging and even dangerous. Medications administered at a detox center can help ease the symptoms of withdrawal and ensure an individual’s safety.

Other types of services vary in different facilities. Treatments and services can be tailored to meet each person’s unique needs. Besides detox, some of the other services that may be offered are:

Behavioral therapy. Used both in group and individual settings, people can learn their triggers to addiction, underlying issues, healthy coping skills, develop positive hobbies, and manage stress. Specific types of behavioral therapy include cognitive behavioral therapy, family therapy, and other therapeutic practices.

Support Groups. Those in recovery are strongly encouraged to participate in group meetings during their treatment program.  Here, people can connect with others going through a similar situation and develop a strong support network.

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT). There is a wide range of medications that may help people in recovery. Some help with side effects of long-term withdrawal, such as anxiety and insomnia, and others help reduce cravings.
