Residential treatment is what comes to mind when most people think "rehab." Patients will remain on the property for a 35-day duration and join in activities like support meetings, individual therapy, group therapy, and more.
Our residential treatment takes 35-45 days. Undergoing a medical detoxification is not mandatory, but is encouraged after patients enroll. During the detoxification process, they will undergo withdrawal symptoms from the substance and receive supplied medication to ease symptoms.
Stabilization and improved life functionality is the ultimate goal of Landmark Recovery's Residential Treatment program for patients who have already completed withdrawal from alcohol, opioids, and other drugs. The residential program aims to assist you in transitioning back into your community as a sober, healthy and prepared individual, and to continue your recovery.
Therapy sessions offered in the residential treatment programs are focused on exploring the underlying causes, or triggers of substance abuse problems, as well as teaching skills related to continued sobriety. Support groups are also offered to provide a safe, private environment to share personal stories. In this group, the patient can begin building the support and skills to last them far after they leave our facilities.
A balance of structure and free time is given to patients during their rehabilitation. Our treatment centers provide both individual and group therapy sessions in some form. Therapists and counselors will be assigned to patients by either group blocks, or appointment times for individual appointments.
To learn about the recovery progress, patients will assemble under one or more therapists/counselors in a group setting. Topics can vary from broad things like family dynamics, tools for resisting cravings, and the disease of addiction. Additional topics include 12-Step, SMART Recovery, and Seeking Safety programs during group sessions. Group therapy seems like the worst place to deal with personal issues, but it actually helps many patients share similar stories and perspectives.
At least 21 hours is dedicated to group therapy each week for Landmark patients. Group therapy helps patients to open up and be more honest. Group therapy is a good opportunity to get support from other recovery patients. Sharing stories can help build friendships, relieve burdens, and boost emotional healing, even if it might be difficult at first. The companionship created in group therapy can last beyond your time in the facility.
Individual therapy is conducted in the afternoon. This form of therapy is the backbone of recovery. A patient who has a trusting and supportive relationship with his therapist is more likely to complete addiction treatment and sustain long-term sobriety. The individual therapist can combine the patient’s aptitude, requirements, and expectations into a specific but modifiable plan for recovery. Individual therapy is attended by an assigned therapist and patient. Landmark Recovery patients will receive at least 2 hours of individual therapy per week. The frequency of these sessions is determined by a medical director. Some topics covered in these sessions are:
One of the best tools used in addiction treatment centers is CBT. This form of treatment is generally used because it's aimed at specific and personal triggers that create and uphold substance abuse. After identifying the trigger, therapists will work towards developing healthier responses for patients to defeat negative thoughts. Patients are asked to be open and willing to discuss their deepest insecurities, fears, etc. with their therapist during these one-on-one sessions. The results are astonishingly beneficial despite the difficulty.
For those who need it, family therapy is offered at some treatment centers. Addiction is often inherited genetically and backed by an unhealthy or dysfunctional familial environment, hence why it's often called a "family disease". Addiction corrupts family relationships in a variety of ways, making family therapy handy for addressing and resolving any issues regarding addiction in the family and what may be contributing to it.
Socialization with other patients is just as important as it is to receive healthy and tasty meals. There are 3 meals a day provided to the patient. These meals offer a chance for patients to talk and learn about each other outside of therapy sessions. Snacks are also provided at any time at Landmark Recovery facilities. The meals are given at the following times:
Patients are given a chance to take part in alternative therapies for recovery in the afternoon, such as music therapy, fitness, and other enrichment activities. Activities that give joy and entertainment during the recovery process are especially popular. Sessions are given out based on the patient's needs, and to further delve into topics regarding previous sessions.
Patients will be asked to participate in a 12-Step, or a meeting similarly structured to 12-Step by the Landmark Staff. There is no particular structure or topic to follow in a 12-Step session, but patients can voluntarily discuss their ideas and thoughts. Storytelling, advice from others, feedback on activities, any treatment questions, and more can all be part of this form of therapy. A safe and secure environment is provided for patients in these support meetings to unwind and reflect on the day's discussions, as well as sharing with peers.
At Landmark Recovery, all residential treatment patients must bring the following:
Do Not Bring
Enrolling in rehab might lure you into false confidence, even if it is a significant first step on the path to recovery. In an attempt to give one "last hurrah" to your drug of choice, you might be tempted to binge. Bingeing like this can be life-threatening because addicts can consume a larger dosage than usual as a send-off for finally deciding to get clean. Those individuals who take opioids or binge drink alcohol are especially at risk. Bingeing can ultimately make detoxification more challenging to deal with. Cold turkey is also not advised, as it might cause harmful side effects that can ruin your willingness to attend rehab.
When discussing your plans to attend a residential treatment center for rehabilitation with your family and friends, be open and honest with them about your intentions. Guilt and shame thrive in the secrecy of your addiction and treatment. You might feel embarrassed or uncomfortable talking to family and friends, but the truth is, getting help is a positive thing. Your decision to get help will be supported by those who genuinely care about you. Support from friends and family can help you while you are in rehab, and after you are released.
When you battle a substance abuse problem, addiction, or alcoholism, reaching out for help is the first step in your recovery journey. Addiction doesn’t happen overnight, nor does recovery. Your brain and body need time to fully heal from addiction. This is why reaching out is the perfect way to regain control of your life.
