Residential Treatment Centers

Residential Treatment Centers:

The most common level of care for addiction treatment is inpatient rehabilitation treatment which takes place in a residential treatment setting. When people enter a residential treatment center the expectation is that the individual will stay in the treatment center overnight. This provides for more safety and observation of the person’s overall medical condition and psychological status.

Residential Treatment Centers also provide more intense group and individual therapy while the individual is living in the addiction treatment program. In Texas, it is very common for residential treatment centers to provide access to medical staff personnel when a person is living in the residential treatment center. Summer Sky Treatment Center® provides 24-hour nursing and medical care in all its residential treatment programs, which provides for a safer treatment experience.

Advantages of Residential Treatment Centers

For people who have developed moderate to severe substance use disorders the residential treatment center model has exceptional advantages over less intense types of treatment services. Since the individual is living in the treatment program, they are provided more opportunities for continued learning and practicing the skills needed to remain alcohol or drug-free.

There is nothing like having a training ground to provide a place to practice new recovery skills without distractions from the outside world and residential treatment programs provide this safety net where an individual is free from daily relapse triggers and high-risk situations that would create temptations before an individual is properly trained on how to deal with these situations.

Learning to practice recovery skills while in a safe environment helps with reducing the stress associated with everyday life so an individual can focus on healing the body and mind while simultaneously putting newly developed recovery skills into practice.

Types of Residential Treatment Centers

While there are many different styles of addiction treatment services most people eventually end up at a residential treatment center. In Texas and across the United States people enter 30, 60, or 90-day residential treatment centers to deal with their addiction to substances.

Certain criteria must be met before an individual is admitted into a 30, 60, or 90-day addiction treatment program. The consideration for inpatient rehabilitation treatment will involve a pre-screening process followed by a diagnosis from an onsite medical doctor as well as numerous diagnostic assessments performed when the individual presents for treatment services.

This is done to make sure the individual is matched to the appropriate level of care for their individual needs so that the individual can also get the most out of the treatment services. Typically, an individual must have a substance use disorder to qualify for residential treatment.

Most, people begin treatment services by attending a detoxification program and then step down into a residential treatment setting once medical detox is completed. People must be medically stable before they enter an inpatient rehabilitation level of care for treatment. If a person is addicted to physiological dependent substances, then they will require the assistance of a medical detoxification treatment program before residential treatment.

Medical detox helps a person manage physical withdrawal symptoms and stabilizes an individual so that the next level of addiction treatment services can be experienced. Detox is the first stage of treatment. Detoxification is a process that helps a person eliminate toxic, addictive substances from one’s body.

Detox is Pre-requisite to Residential Treatment:

People that use addictive substances like alcohol or drugs need the assistance of a medical detox program to minimize the acute effects of physiological signs and symptoms of withdrawal when a person begins to stop using alcohol or drugs. It can be potentially dangerous to stop using some addictive substances without the help of a medical detoxification treatment program.

Detox alone is not treatment, but one component of addiction treatment. Once a person enters medical detox, they will receive an assessment, and then a diagnosis can be made for a substance-related or addictive disorder. The diagnosis and severity level of the addictive disorder will help determine what level of treatment is needed after detox. Often a person will be referred to inpatient rehabilitation treatment after completing the detox phase of treatment.

Residential Treatment Center Programs:

Residential Treatment Services is the next level of treatment for those with an addictive disorder. Since residential treatment usually follows medical detoxification treatment, then it is important to find a residential treatment center that offers both medical detox and residential treatment at the same location.

When calling a residential treatment center, make sure to ask if the facility offers medical detoxification and residential treatment services. Some residential treatment centers offer multiple levels of care for treatment services at their addiction treatment centers.

Summer Sky a facility licensed by The State of Texas and accredited by The Joint Commission offers medical detox, inpatient treatment, residential treatment, partial hospitalization programs, and intensive outpatient treatment programs at their Texas substance use disorder treatment programs.

Finding a facility that offers all levels of care at one location is very helpful to people looking for alcohol or drug treatment. Ultimately the assessment process followed by the medical doctor’s diagnosis will determine which level of treatment a person will need following medical detoxification.
