Private Residential Programs in North Highlands
Live at the facility where you are receiving your treatments, you are in a residential treatment program. Having Access to 24/7 support and addiction treatment is one of the key benefits. By moving out of your comfort zone and into a rehab center, you can protect yourself from any stressful triggers that culminated in you developing a drug use disorder.
Finishing your rehab program and avoiding relapse is a great deal easier if you stay in a safe and supportive environment. Residential addiction treatment programs are considered more effective when your drug or alcohol dependency is chronic and complex in nature, or if you experience co-occurring illnesses or have a dual diagnosis.
You can begin the first steps to recovery by taking part in a residential rehab program, but to overcome the challenges of the early stages of addiction recovery, you must remain committed to the program. Once the residential program is finished you will acquire skills to be independent and your focus will be on your new life and the things you want to achieve from it.

Most individuals need a medical detox to commence drug or alcohol rehab, as it tackles physical dependence on substances by ridding it from your body. During the detox phase you will go through withdrawal symptoms as your body begins to function without the substance it was physically reliant on.
