Residential Treatment

We Do Recover

Residential treatment offers comprehensive addiction treatment in a live-in facility, providing 24/7 care and support. Patients stay for varying lengths, from weeks to months, based on their individual needs and progress. This treatment encompasses therapy, counselling, and evidence-based interventions aimed at tackling the underlying causes of addiction.

Originally used in psychiatric contexts for mental health disorders, residential treatment’s effectiveness in addiction recovery was later recognized. It’s now a important component of the addiction recovery community, offering a higher level of care than outpatient programs. The constant availability of professional support enhances the likelihood of achieving and maintaining long-term sobriety.

This treatment approach also includes diverse therapeutic methods tailored to each patient’s needs, such as individual and group therapy, family sessions, holistic practices like yoga, and educational workshops, equipping patients with vital recovery tools.

    Residential treatment offers a structured, non-hospital environment with 24-hour supervision, designed for individuals who are not able to return home or to work during their treatment period. Unlike outpatient treatment, this approach requires patients to stay within the facility throughout the duration of their program. These programs typically encompass counselling and other behavioral health services and are often equipped to support co-occurring mental health disorders, depending on the individual’s needs and the level of care provided.

    Residential treatment is particularly suited for people with recurring substance misuse issues, severe substance use disorders (SUDs), co-occurring mental health conditions, and other medical conditions, but who do not need medically managed services. The types of residential treatment available vary, including short-term programs that last 3-6 weeks, long-term programs extending 6-12 months, sober living homes, and therapeutic communities (TCs).

    The 24-hour supervision in residential treatment centers creates a safe space for individuals to focus on recovery, with extensive support from staff and peers. While some residential centers offer a degree of medical monitoring, it’s important to note that this is typically less intensive than that provided in medically managed intensive inpatient treatment facilities, which cater to subacute and acute addiction and mental health disorders.

    At WeDoRecover, a variety of residential treatment programs are available to cater to different aspects and stages of addiction rehab. These programs include:

    1. Drug and Alcohol Detox
      This important phase involves close monitoring and the use of medications to safely remove drugs and alcohol from the body, easing withdrawal symptoms and helping to break dependence.
    2. Traditional Inpatient Care
      Focused on healing both the brain and body, this stage uses evidence-based and holistic care approaches, with the duration dependent on individual progress and goal achievement.
    3. Mental Health Disorder Treatment
      Recognising the common co-occurrence of addiction and mental health disorders, dual diagnosis treatments address both issues simultaneously.
    4. Gender-Specific Treatment
      Tailored specifically for men or women, these programs minimize distractions and aim to provide the most effective environment for long-term recovery.

    The right treatment is determined after an initial assessment considering the severity of addiction, health needs, and readiness for change. Following residential treatment, the journey continues with various outpatient care options:

    • Partial Hospitalization Program
      This offers support for both mental health disorders and addiction.
    • Intensive Outpatient Program
      This involves frequent therapy sessions.
    • Outpatient Treatment
      A step-down in frequency from more intensive care.
    • Aftercare Treatment
      Focused on maintaining recovery on a limited or as-needed basis.

    Each therapy option at WeDoRecover is critical, tailored to provide the necessary tools for sustained sobriety and relapse prevention. Deciding on the best residential treatment program doesn’t have to be immediate.
