Private Residential Programs

Residential rehabilitation programs require you to reside on the same property that you are receiving treatments in. The main benefit is being able to receive holistic support and treatment all day. Moving out of your home environment and entering a rehab center can cushion you against the stressors that impact your use of substances.

Successfully completing your treatment program and avoiding relapse is much easier if you reside in a safe and controlled environment. Residential programs are considered most effective if your substance dependency is chronic or severe, or if you suffer from co-occurring disorders or have a dual diagnosis.

We understand that the early stages of recovery are pivotal and after a residential treatment program, you will need to stay focused in order to maintain your sobriety. Finishing your residential rehab program is the beginning of your newfound independence and you will focus on setting goals for your substance-free future.

It is normal to confront withdrawal and cravings for a while after the substance has been removed from your system. You can reduce the chances of relapse by building coping skills for long-term abstinence.
