Drug Addiction Residential Treatment in South Florida

Residential Rehab

Do I Need Residential Rehab?

In most cases, residential treatment programs last for a minimum of 28-days. Residential treatment allows newly sober individuals the opportunity to focus exclusively on maintaining their sobriety. The daily activities they partake in will be predominantly recovery based, and experienced staff members will be available for 24/7 support. Once an individual has undergone medically monitored detox, he or she will usually transfer to a residential treatment center. Residential treatment is also an ideal option for those who have attempted outpatient treatment, only to experience relapse or find that they are struggling mentally or emotionally. The immersive environment is geared towards teaching fundamental life skills, teaching more about the disease of addiction and how it can be successfully treated, and furthering physical, mental and emotional health.

Residential or Intensive Inpatient?

Once an individual has undergone medically monitored detox, he or she will have the option of which level of care to continue forward with. In order for this decision to be properly made, an in- depth, in-person evaluation should be undergone. Depending on the presence of co-occurring disorders and the severity of the addiction, the concerned individual will be placed in intensive inpatient treatment, residential inpatient treatment, or outpatient treatment. Residential treatment is ideal for those who have experienced long-term addiction, but do not suffer from any other underlying mental health disorders, and whose lives are not in immediate danger. For example, if you have overdosed, or if you have ever been hospitalized for your alcohol consumption or drug use, you will likely be admitted to an intensive inpatient program. If your life has never been in immediate danger – but it has become unmanageable – residential treatment will probably suffice. However, every case is highly individualized, and a professional evaluation will help you ensure you are making the right choice for you.

How Long Will Treatment Last?

As previously mentioned, the minimum length of residential treatment is 28 days – it has been proven that it takes an entire month to break old habits and instill new, healthy ways of coping. However, it is recommended that patients who are serious about maintaining long-term recovery attend treatment for a minimum of three months. Learning to live an entirely new way of life takes time. Those who have been using drugs or drinking for years upon years will have come to rely on chemical substances as a part of their daily routine. They will need to make necessary changes, replacing their drinking and drug use with other, healthy habits. It isn’t an easy transition to make, and self-exploration plays a huge role in long-term sobriety. The therapists and counselors that are on-staff at residential properties will help newly-sober men and women explore new options, helping them find what it is they like to do.  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 fulfillment.

Willingness is Key

Structure is extremely important for those new to recovery, and all residential treatment facilities will come equipped with a fair amount of rules. In most cases, the base rules are similar:

  • Patients may not leave the premises.
  • Patients must participate in group and one-on-one therapy sessions.
  • Patients must undergo regular drug tests (and, of course, maintain complete abstinence from all mood and mind altering substances).
  • Patients must avoid conflict with others.
The rules will be discussed when a patient is first admitted to the facility, and the consequences of breaking the rules will also be clearly laid out. There will always be a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to drugs and alcohol. In order to succeed in treatment and go on to live a rewarding life of long-term recovery, the rules must be closely followed. Willingness is key!  If you are unsure which intensity of inpatient treatment is right for you, it is advised that you undergo an in-person, in-depth evaluation.
