How Successful Is Residential Rehab?

how successful is residential rehab

It can be difficult and embarrassing to admit you need residential rehab. For many people struggling with addiction, residential rehab can offer the space and support to regain control of their lives. Finding the right residential addiction treatment center can be overwhelming. Because of this, many people attempt to quit drugs or alcohol cold turkey at home. Without medical or psychiatric support, relapse is likely. Those who quit cold turkey are also more likely to overdose or use other drugs. They may even suffer from health complications during their drug withdrawal. Luckily, residential addiction treatment programs across California offer compassionate professional care and networks of post-rehab support.

If you or a loved one is struggling with drug or alcohol addiction and are attempting to quit at home, call La Fuente Hollywood Treatment Center, Southern California’s top LGBTQ addiction treatment facility at 888.903.9898 or visit us online today.

What Happens in Residential Rehab?

Residential rehab programs differ in size, duration, and location. Some California facilities are surrounded by redwood trees. Others have vast ocean views. Usually, size and location aren’t as important as a treatment center’s mission and who they serve. There are residential programs across the country and across the state of California designed to safely support detox with medical and psychiatric care. Some programs are single-gender. Others are faith-based or mindfulness-based. Programs may also include:

  • Group therapy
  • 12-step programs
  • Alumni programs
  • Relapse prevention programs
  • Individual therapy
  • Cognitive-behavioral Therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Biofeedback and EMDR
  • Art or music therapy

Most residential rehab programs last 30, 60, or 90 days, depending on an individual’s needs. Long-term drug rehab facilities are increasingly popular. Some people need longer stays to address persistent withdrawal symptoms or to receive care for dual diagnosis. These programs often transition into sober living homes and other aftercare to prevent relapse. All residential rehab programs help residents rebuild their life with healthy, structured activities.

Why Choose an LGBTQ Residential Rehab Program?

Residential rehab is often the safest and most effective choice for recovery. Unfortunately for those in the LGBTQ community, not all rehab facilities are created equal. Some may feel unsafe or not as conducive to authentic sharing in group therapy. However, LGBTQ residential rehab serves both the individual and community to address individual and collective causes of addiction. Sadly, both alcohol and drug addiction are prevalent among the LGBTQ community for several reasons. Bars are often considered safe spaces within the community. Both alcohol and drug use is a popular social activity. For many, this can lead to self-medicating in response to bigotry, family stress, and other life stressors. An inclusive LGBTQ rehab facility is mindful and aware of challenges facing the community and works to address them alongside traditional medical and therapeutic help. A safe space is the bedrock of recovery. For many, meeting and working with others with similar life experiences can make them feel less alone in their addiction. Often, this makes overcoming addiction and returning to everyday life feel possible.
