What does residential addiction treatment look like?
Structure and having accountability is vitally important in early recovery. The minimum length of stay for residential treatment is 28 days. It generally takes at least one month to break an old habit and instill new ones that promote healthy coping skills. With that said, we do recommend that, if a person is serious about their long term sobriety, that’s they attend residential treatment for at least three months. Learning to live an entirely new way of life is not easy and does take time to do. You can’t expect to take away months or years of drug and alcohol abuse and and unhealthy way of life in a matter of 1 month. You came to rely on a chemical substance in your every day life. This means you will have to change much more in your life than just ridding your body of drugs and alcohol. It is important that you learn how to replace the drugs and alcohol with other healthy habits. This process takes time.
It isn’t an easy transition to make, and self-growth plays a huge role in long-term sobriety. The therapists and counselors that are on-staff at residential properties will help those in early recovery find what it is they like to do and how to manage life without drugs and alcohol. Three months may seem like a long time to those who have never been in inpatient treatment before – but it is certainly a small price to pay for a lifetime of health, happiness, and sobriety.
Inpatient addiction treatment programs
We lived our entire addiction without any accountability or structure and these are very important to those who are new in sobriety. With that said, residential treatment will come with a fair amount of rules and requirements. This is never easy for someone early in sobriety but it is a vital part of the process. Willingness to do whatever it takes is the key to long term sobriety, even if it seems unnecessary to you. I’m most cases, the base rules are similar.
- Patients may not leave the premises.
- Patients must undergo regular drug tests and maintain complete abstinence
from all mind-altering substances.
- Patients must participate in one on one and group therapy sessions.
- Patients must avoid conflict with other patients.
These rules may vary a little bit but any rules and consequences of breaking said rules will be lauded out and discussed with the patient upon admission. There is a zero tolerance policy for drug and alcohol consumption. The point is to completely separate yourself from the drugs and alcohol that took your life from you. Long term recovery is what we strive for in our patients.
If you are unsure if residential treatment is right for you, we advise you undergo a one on one evaluation to help you decide the best option for you. Our Evoke facilities want to help you get the help that you desperately need and to help you maintain long term sobriety in order to live a healthy and fulfilled life. Now is the time to make a change in your life!
