Residential Treatment Q & A

What is residential treatment?

Residential treatment is a type of program for recovery and rehabilitation from chemical dependency or substance abuse. As opposed to outpatient models, residential treatment involves a temporary stay at an inpatient facility where you undergo treatment, education, and counseling during the day and sleep at night. 

Residential treatment at Bridge the Gap Addiction and Mental Health Services, PLLC, involves a comprehensive assessment at the beginning of your stay as well as regular follow-ups as you work toward your goals. Your residential treatment program might also involve:

  • Individual counseling
  • Group therapy
  • Medication management or medication-assisted treatment (MAT)
  • Support groups and recovery programs

Each day is highly structured with a consistent schedule. While most of the day consists of gainful parts of your program, there is also some downtime for reflection and relaxation. 


What are the benefits of residential treatment?

Residential treatment and outpatient treatment each have their own benefits, and Hazel can direct you to the option more suitable for your circumstances. A few noteworthy advantages of taking part in residential treatment for substance abuse and addiction are:

  • 24-hour support
  • The ability to distance yourself from harmful people and circumstances 
  • Frequent sessions
  • A consistent, structured schedule of care
  • Detailed evaluations
  • Multiple modalities of therapy 

If you experience substance abuse, and live in an environment where it’s especially difficult to stay away from a particular substance, or if you experience domestic abuse or other forms of violence in your daily life, residential treatment may be the safer and more effective option for your recovery care plan. 


Who should consider residential treatment?

Residential treatment is an option at Bridge the Gap Addiction and Mental Health Services, PLLC, for men experiencing substance abuse and addiction. Using nearly any mind-altering drug or substance excessively can lead to a chemical dependency, and they’re far from uncommon.
