Residential treatment for drug abuse and addiction takes place in a highly structured, supervised residential setting. The facility will be staffed by medical and substance abuse professionals.
There are two primary ways in which residential treatment for drug and alcohol abuse stands out from other methods.
The first is that the individual struggling with substance abuse are able to leave the inciting environment and to enter a clean environment. Old associates and triggers that contributed to their substance will not be present in the residential setting giving them a real fighting chance at a clean break. The other way in which residential treatment differs from other forms of treatment is that the individual coping with addiction will be among those seeking to better and free themselves from substance abuse . They will be in a positive, motivated environment where they can commiserate with individuals like themselves who have the same goals.
