Residential treatment is an option for people that have substance use disorders, mental health disorders, or dual diagnosis disorders. One of the benefits of residential treatment is that it offers the comprehensive tools that are needed for successful outcomes in treatment and for ongoing recovery.
The residential treatment program at Oceanfront Recovery offers the opportunity for residents to begin their recovery in a tranquil, healing environment. The professional staff at the residential treatment facilities in Laguna Beach, California provide high-quality care to every client receiving residential treatment.
Learn why the benefits of residential treatment often make it the ideal treatment for people entering a recovery program.
What is Residential Treatment?
Residential treatment offers many benefits that are similar to the benefits of outpatient substance abuse treatment and mental health treatment programs. Clients in both types of treatment typically receive an assessment and an individualized treatment plan. The medical professionals, therapists, and other treatment team members address the needs of each client.
There are some differences between residential and outpatient treatment programs, such as:
- Clients live at the treatment facility instead of reporting to treatment or meetings at certain times and then leaving
- Residential treatment programs offer a home-like atmosphere for clients
- Residents have greater access to 24-hour onsite treatment that is often not available to those in outpatient treatment
- Treatment is more highly structured than intensive outpatient treatment and other outpatient treatment programs
Residential programs are usually designed for people with substance use disorders. This is true even though many clients likely have co-occurring dual diagnosis disorders. An example is the fact that the Anxiety and Depression Association of America explains that there are few residential treatment options for people that have anxiety disorders.
Oceanfront Recovery welcomes clients into the anxiety treatment program. Staff members address the needs of the whole person when a client receives treatment at one of the Oceanfront Recovery locations.
The Benefits of Residential Treatment
Some sources consider the benefits of residential treatment to be ‘moderate,’ compared to the benefits of outpatient treatment programs. Other sources, such as a PsychCentral contributor, tout the benefits of residential treatment as being at a safe location. The site contributor indicates that residential treatment programs are the ‘cornerstone’ of the daily life and the activities of clients.
