When dealing with an addiction, you will have to decide if you need a residential addiction treatment program. There is a vast array of treatment options available to you but only you and your family can decide what type of addiction treatment will be most effective for you. If you cannot decide if you should be in a residential addiction treatment program or not, you can always get the help of an interventionist or an addiction specialist.
These professionals will get to know you and your addiction and then help you come up with a plan of action to help you overcome your addiction. You need to realize, though, that a residential addiction treatment program is only one of your options. You must consider your situation, addiction, and ability to overcome your addiction. This is the only way you will be able to choose which type of treatment program is best for you.
At The Watershed Addiction Treatment Programs, we will offer you a residential addiction treatment program because we are a residential treatment facility. However, we are not just any residential facility – we are a private drug rehab facility located above the beautiful beaches of Florid and we offer the most comprehensive, full continuum of care to treat you during each and every stage of addiction. Call The Watershed today at 1-800-861-1768 to see how we can help you.
In order to decide if you need a residential addiction treatment program, you will need to know what residential treatment centers have to offer you. One of the most important things a residential addiction treatment program offers you is change. This may seem like an obvious statement because change obviously comes with treatment. However, this change at a residential addiction treatment program can only happen when you do your part by doing the work you need to in order to keep fighting your addiction.
For the duration of your addiction treatment, you will be living in a residential treatment facility. This means that a residential addiction treatment program offers you a drastic change in your current lifestyle. In active addiction to drugs and alcohol, you may have stolen, cheated, lied, and manipulated, and none of this is any way to truly live the life you deserve. Sobriety can be where you start to live an honest, compassionate, and understanding life. This is where the true change occurs – when you see how you were living before and how you want to do better in recovery.
We do offer you a drastic change from your current situation at The Watershed Addiction Treatment Programs but you have to call us first at 1-800-861-1768 This change is a good thing, and you deserve to live a life without the crutch of drugs or alcohol. You will be changing from a life dominated by your addiction to a life of beauty in recovery.
A residential addiction treatment program offers you support. However, because any type of addiction treatment program offers some extent of support, you might wonder what is so significant about the support at a residential program. In other treatment programs, you might have support a couple of times a week. Sometimes this is not enough to keep you on your path to sobriety. As we already stated, with a residential addiction treatment program, you will live in the treatment facility for the duration of your addiction treatment. This means that a residential addiction treatment program offers continuous support, night and day, for the duration of your treatment. This also means that you will have constant structure, help, attention, and just about anything else that you need to overcome your sobriety. This is something else that you will need to consider when deciding if a residential addiction treatment program is what you will need. You need to decide if you can reach sobriety with part-time treatment or if you need the constant support and structure a residential treatment facility offers.
As you are receiving the support and structure you need at The Watershed, you will also be receiving the comforts and attention that you deserve.
If you call The Watershed at 1-800-861-1768, we can assure you that you will receive the support you need as you are being made as comfortable as possible.
One other thing you will be faced with as you are researching a residential addiction treatment program is short-term (30 to 60 days) and long-term (90 days or longer) residential treatment facilities. Choosing between these two types of facilities will be one of the more difficult things you will have to decide partly because you may not know if you need a long-term residential addiction treatment program until you are already in treatment.
Generally, though, if you have been dealing with your addiction for a long period of time, if you have concurring mental health issues, or if you have multiple addictions, a long-term residential addiction treatment program is going to be the better choice for you. This is because you will basically need a long period of time to re-learn how to live your life without the presence of your addiction.
We give you a choice of residential addiction treatment program progressions at The Watershed. You first enter into primary care, then you can progress into extended care, and then you have the option of entering into outpatient and sober living. All but the sober living, which can last as long as you need it to, will typically last around 30 days.
We realize that you have a lot to consider as you are trying to find the most effective addiction treatment program but we want to stress one more thing on your mind. A residential addiction treatment program ensures that you are set up with aftercare programs. You do not have to worry about living in a treatment center for an extended period of time only to be thrown back into your life afterward. You will have continued support in the form of aftercare or outpatient programs. At The Watershed, we will create an individualized exit plan for you that may or may not include sober living, sometimes known as a halfway house. We will help you get set up with the outpatient programs that will keep you on your path to sobriety.
