Addiction hurts. It destroys relationships. It ruins lives. It kills.
Resources for Finding Residential Treatment Centers
There are many kinds of resources available when looking for and evaluating residential treatment centers. Two of the most helpful are:
- Speaking directly to a variety of residential treatment facilities
- Using a focused internet search
Speaking directly to a counselor or intake specialist is an excellent option. At Inpatient Recovery, we encourage this approach because often individuals or families who are desperate for help don’t know which questions to ask or even how to begin looking for treatment options. Personal, and empathetic guidance, either face-to-face or over the phone, makes the difference between going to the right treatment facility for your needs. Contact us at 877-733-5680. We’re available 24-hours a day.
Internet searches are helpful in identifying residential drug treatment centers, as well as general information on residential treatment programs. An internet search helps give a “big picture” view of the option available.
Evaluating Residential Drug Treatment Centers: Good Places to Begin
Many people search only in their local neighborhood or city for residential treatment centers. This may not be the best choice. For many addicts and alcoholics, a geographic separation is a better option. It allows them to focus fully on getting better, without being tempted back into familiar surroundings and companions who supported the addictions.
While drug and alcohol treatment services are offered in many places and locations, detox and residential treatment programs are statistically the most effective initial levels of care. Someone with a drug or alcohol addiction needs the right treatment, at the right time and in the right setting. This means a personalized, attentive approach that is rarely available in large clinical facilities who treat hundreds of patients at a time. Inpatient Recovery has a variety of residential treatment centers, including a detox program, within one intimate treatment grounds. This allows each client to have more dedicated counseling and support staff than is found in larger facilities.
