Many individuals can benefit from residential treatment, which is a long-term option that typically lasts anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. Individuals in residential treatment are often seeking a period of sobriety from substances or a chance to escape the stressors of daily life and focus on building skills for improving their psychological health.
Residential treatment provides a number of unique benefits, including the following:
Individuals in residential care live at the treatment center. As a result, they are able to benefit from 24-hour access to treatment professionals, as well as a carefully structured and controlled environment that is designed to provide maximum safety and security. In addition, living at the treatment center promotes bonding between individuals in treatment, giving them many opportunities to support and be supported by one another. Individuals in residential treatment benefit from a singular focus on managing mental health symptoms or building skills for long-term sobriety.
Smooth Transitions Between Levels of Care
Residential treatment programs often provide multiple levels of care. As a result, individuals in these programs can often transition directly to partial hospitalization programs (PHP) or intensive outpatient programs (IOP) in order to continue their journeys towards improved mental health and sobriety. The TPS team has extensive expertise in helping individuals find the right programs and levels of care that can best meet their needs.
