If you have a drug addiction, it is entirely possible that you will need residential drug rehabs to help you recover. Depending on the severity of your drug addiction, outpatient care may not help you. In fact, residential drug rehabs may be your only chance at reaching lasting sobriety. Simply put, residential rehabs remove you from your home sometimes drug filled environment and puts you into a structured, drug free environment. The reason residential drug rehabs are so important for your recovery when you cannot reach sobriety in your current environment is because they will remove you from all temptations of drugs.
We cannot help you if you do not call us, The Watershed, at 1-800-861-1768. You can call day or night to speak with one of our caring staff members who are on call to help get you into treatment.
You may think that you can handle your drug addiction on your own. You may have even tried, but failed when the temptation of drugs came around when you were still very vulnerable. Even with the help of outpatient treatments, which refers to living at home and still attending some form of drug treatment, you may have still relapsed. This does not mean that you cannot reach sobriety, but rather it means that you are not capable of reaching it without complete structure. To understand what this means you need to gain some understanding of the true purpose of residential drug rehabs. The purpose of any residential drug rehabs is to offer you an atmosphere in which you feel secure and supported. The purpose is to offer you an environment free of all temptations of drugs. Moreover, the purpose of any residential drug rehabs is to offer you a structured atmosphere in which you can focus completely on your recovery.

One of the issues you may have with residential drug rehabs is the fact that you do have to live in the treatment center for usually 30 days or more (depending on if you need long term treatment or not). This may be an issue because you are leaving your home, stepping into an environment that is unfamiliar, and you are starting a process that will lead you to a new, sober lifestyle. However, effective residential drug rehabs will make this time of transition less stressful for you. This means that the centers should take the time to help you feel secure in your atmosphere and help you get settled in. They should be supportive of the fact that you are feeling vulnerable and help you feel more comfortable.
At The Watershed, we want your transition into rehab to be stress free. From the moment you pick up the phone and call The Watershed at 1-800-861-1768, you will be surrounded by support. Moreover, from the moment you walk into our center, you will know you are cared for.
When everything else has failed your expectations, meaning trying to reach sobriety on your own or other treatment options, you need to remember that residential drug rehabs can help you heal. However, do not expect the residential drug rehabs to do the healing for you. These types of centers only offer you the tools you need to overcome you addiction in a structured environment. Residential drug rehabs do not take your addiction away. They merely teach you how to overcome your addiction through offering a mixture of physical and psychological treatments. These treatments will teach you healthy coping mechanisms, build your self-esteem, and essentially teach your mind and body that you do not need drugs to function in everyday life.
One of the great things about residential drug rehabs is that they have the ability to watch you closely for an extended period of time. This means that the staff members get to know you on a somewhat of a personal level and they will be able to see just how effective your treatments are. Something that is easier to see in residential drug rehabs as opposed to other forms of rehab is if you have a dual diagnosis. This means that you have something else that needs addressing other than your drug addiction. This something else could refer to anxiety, anger, depression, alcoholism, an eating disorder, or any other type of mental disorder. This is better seen in residential rehab, because you are enrolled in that center for the duration of your treatment and your doctors are able to see you when you are on and off drugs. They will better be able to see what areas of your life need to be focused on the most and then offer advice and treatment for those areas.
