Residential Treatment Offers Change
In order to decide if you need a residential addiction treatment program, you will need to know what residential treatment centers have to offer you. One of the most important things a residential addiction treatment program offers you is change. This may seem like an obvious statement because change obviously comes with treatment. However, the change a residential addiction treatment center offers refers to your current situation. For the duration of your addiction recovery, you will be living in the residential treatment facility. This means that a residential addiction treatment program offers you a drastic change in your current life style. What you need to consider is if your addiction is too severe and if your current lifestyle is too tempting for you to reach sobriety while still living in it. What you need to ask yourself is “Do I need the drastic change that a residential addiction program offers?”
We do offer you a drastic change from your current situation if you call Cliffside Malibu at 1-800-501-1988. However, this change is a good thing. You will be changing from a life dominated by your addiction to a life of luxury and recovery. At Cliffside Malibu, we will offer you things such as 180-degree views of the Pacific Ocean, a gourmet chef, wireless Internet, and Jacuzzis. There will be a change at Cliffside Malibu but this change does not have to be overly stressful.
A Residential Addiction Treatment Program Offers Support
A residential addiction treatment program offers you support. However, because any type of addiction treatment program offers some extent of support, you might wonder what is so significant about a residential drug treatment programs support. In other treatment programs, you might have support a couple times a week. Sometimes this is not enough to keep you on your path to sobriety. As we already stated, with a residential addiction treatment program, you will live in the treatment facility for the duration of your addiction treatment. This means that a residential addiction treatment program offers continuous support, night and day, for the duration of your treatment. This also means that you will have constant structure, help, attention, and just about anything else that you need to overcome your sobriety. This is something else that you will need to consider when deciding if a residential addiction treatment program is what you will need. You need to decide if you can reach sobriety with part-time treatment or if you need the constant support and structure a residential treatment facility offers.
As you are receiving the support and structure you need at Cliffside Malibu, you will also be receiving the comforts and attention that you deserve. If you call Cliffside Malibu at 1-800-501-1988, we can assure you that you will receive the support you need as you are being made as comfortable as possible.
Short-Term versus Long-Term Residential Treatment
One other thing you will be faced with as you are researching a residential addiction treatment program is short-term (30 to 60 days) and long-term (90 days or longer) residential treatment facilities. Choosing between these two types of facilities will be one of the more difficult things you will have to decide partly because you may not know if you need a long-term residential addiction treatment program until you are already in drug abuse treatment. Generally, though, if you have been dealing with your addiction for a long period of time, if you have a concurring mental health issues, or if you have multiple addictions a long-term residential addiction treatment program is going to be the better choice. This is because you will basically need a long period of time to re-learn how to live your life without the presence of your addiction.
We give you a choice of residential addiction treatment program progressions at Cliffside Malibu. You first enter into primary care, then you can progress into extended care, and then you have the option of entering into sober living. All but the sober living, which can last as long as you need it to, will last up to 30 days.
A Residential Addiction Treatment Program Ensures Aftercare
We realize that you have a lot to consider as you are trying to find the most effective addiction program but we want to impress one more thing on your mind. A treatment program ensures that you are set up with aftercare programs. You do not have to worry about living in a residential addiction treatment center for an extended period of time and just being thrust back into your life. You will have continued support in the form of aftercare or outpatient programs. At Cliffside Malibu we will create an individualized exit plan for you that may or may not include sober living, sometimes known as a halfway house. We will help you get setup with the outpatient programs that will keep you on your path to sobriety.
