Residential programs are a powerful tool for helping someone achieve and maintain sobriety from alcohol and drugs. Programs are round-the-clock and provide a private, comfortable setting with a highly structured, customized treatment plan. Group and individual therapies are also a part of the plan.
The goal of the residential program is to allow the person dealing with a drug or alcohol addiction to get customized treatment tailored to meet his or her needs. Residential treatment is effective for dealing with a wide variety of substance abuse disorders because these programs offer round-the-clock supervision and care.
Patients live onsite during their residential program, which removes them from the temptations and triggers they would usually face in their everyday lives. This enables them to settle into a positive and supportive environment, and receive the care they need, building their strength so they can return to the lives healthier and better able to deal with their addiction. During residential treatment, patients have immediate access to accountability and encouragement from staff, so they are able to deal with any crisis that might arise.
Each residential program offers access to a variety of treatment options that are designed to support and engage the patient. Treatment encourages development of coping skills and helps form positive behaviors that are necessary for long-term sobriety.

- Medication-Assisted Therapy
- Individual and Group Therapy
