What Can Residential Treatment Offer For Addiction?

While some people may receive adequate treatment in outpatient settings, people with more severe or long-term instances of addiction might need inpatient or residential care. However, not all residential programs are the same, and a person struggling with drug or alcohol addiction may not know what the ideal residential treatment program looks like.

Each person is unique, whether they have a substance use disorder (SUD) or not. Whether they have co-occurring mental health issues or not. There are different forms of treatment to serve the varying needs of patients. At Mountainview Recovery, we offer both residential and outpatient treatment services to accommodate a variety of needs. If you believe that you need help with your SUD, please reach out to one of our admissions navigators to find the program that’s right for you!

A combination of medically supported treatments and various types of therapy make up the approach most likely to result in the outcome and long-term maintenance of recovery.

The components of these treatments as used in a residential setting are outlined below to help individuals who are seeking help with their addictions, or their loved ones, to find the residential treatment program most likely to support them in their journey.

The Elements Of Residential Treatment

A study in the journal Addiction showed that that people who did not try to get help for their addiction were less likely to make it 3 years in sobriety, and were more likely to relapse.

  • 62% of those who had professional help in treating their addiction remained in recovery for 3 years after treatment, compared to only 43% of those who didn’t get treatment.
  • 57% of those who made it 3 years were still free of the substance after a total of 16 years.

This shows that getting professional treatment is vital to reaching the best outcome.

An essential element of drug addiction treatment is treatment length—staying with a treatment program long enough to emerge with confidence in their newly learned skills and tools for remaining in recovery. Treatment is often most effective when done in a continuum, either at the same facility or if multiple facilities share information and collaborate on the care of the patient.

Residential treatment provides 24-hour care to help individuals achieve and maintain recovery from addiction. These programs are able to offer a breadth of services that are more likely to help clients develop capabilities and tools to stay in recovery well after leaving the program. These include:

  • Medically supported detox and withdrawal, if needed.
  • Medically supported maintenance care, if needed.
  • Individual therapies, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
  • Family or couples counseling.
  • Building skills and tools that are necessary for life post treatment.
  • Follow-up care after the formalized program ends.

The History of Residential Treatment Centers

residential treatment center (RTC), sometimes called a rehab, is a live-in health care facility providing therapy for substance abuse, mental illness, or other behavioral problems. Residential treatment may be considered the “last-ditch” approach to treating abnormal psychology or psychopathology.

In the 1600s, Great Britain established the Poor Law that allowed poor children to become trained in apprenticeships by removing them from their families and forcing them to live in group homes. In the 1800s, the United States copied this system, but often mentally ill children were placed in jail with adults because society did not know what to do with them. There were no RTCs in place to provide the 24-hour care they needed and they were placed in jail when they could not live in the home. In the 1900s, Anna Freud and her peers were part of the Vienna Psychoanalytic Society and they worked on how to care for children. They worked to create residential treatment centers for children and adolescents with emotional and behavioral disorders.

Beginning in the 1980s, cognitive behavioral therapy was more commonly used in child psychiatry, as a source of intervention for troubled youth, and was applied in RTCs to produce better long-term results. Attachment theory also developed in response to the rise of children admitted to RTCs who were abused or neglected. These children needed specialized care by caretakers who were knowledgeable about trauma.

In the 1990s, the number of children entering RTCs increased dramatically, leading to a policy shift from institution- based services to a family-centered community system of care. This also reflected the lack of appropriate treatment resources. However, residential treatment centers have continued to grow and today house over 50,000 children The number of residential treatment centers in the United States is currently estimated at 28,900 facilities.

Studies of different treatment approaches have found that residential treatment is effective for individuals with a long history of addictive behavior or criminal activity. RTCs offer a variety of structured programs designed to address the specific need of the inmates. Despite the controversy surrounding the efficacy of (RTCs), recent research has revealed that community-based residential treatment programs have positive long-term effects for children and youth with behavioral problems. Participants in a pilot program employing family-driven care and positive peer modeling displayed no incidence of elopement, self-injurious behaviors, or physical aggression, and just one case of property destruction when compared to a control group. The success of treatment for children in RTCs depends heavily on their background i.e., their state, situation, circumstances and behavioral status before commencement of treatment. Children who displayed lower rates of internalizing and externalizing behavior problems at intake and had a lower level of exposure to negative environmental factors (e.g., domestic violence, parental substance abuse, high crime rates), showed better results than children whose symptoms were more severe.

I am a new employee of Mountainview Recovery. I am amazed every day at the changes that I see in the clients during... their recovery. This is the first job that I have had in over 20 years that I do not dread coming into work! I even frequently come in early! The staff are very supportive of the clients AND each other. I think the spiritual aspect of the program is what has made a difference in the clients who have not been successful in other programs. If someone that you know is in need of turning their life around....this is THE PLACE that you want them to experience!!read more
