During residential treatment, the patients are cared for in a treatment facility. At Castle Health, patients are monitored and supported during their medical detox, at any time they feel unstable, or are struggling with cravings.
Inpatient rehab includes a hospital or nursing care facility, with beds, amenities, and a specific process for recovery. This programme is suitable for people at the beginning of their recovery process, who need assistance before they are given more freedom and activities to participate in.
At Castle Health, we take pride in the residential treatment services we offer. Residential treatment refers to a more home-like atmosphere, with patients enjoying their own space to live in or share a room with another patient. This type of facility involves fewer beds, more freedom, and more amenities. During residential rehab, patients move from their home into this new, substance-free home for a determined period.
Patients benefit from living for a while away from family, friends, stress factors, and any temptations or bad influences (such as an entourage of friends who also consume drugs). Patients can fully be present and participate in therapy, and may also develop positive interaction with other patients, and focus on their journey back to sobriety instead of the commitments and the pressures of everyday life.
Benefits of Residential Programmes
Residential treatment offers various advantages to patients in recovery. Residential treatment is an essential component of a successful recovery programme. Patients benefit from all these below:
- 24-hour monitoring: Our medical staff supervise the patients to ensure their safety and comfort during this difficult phase of recovery.
- A healing and substance-free environment: As their addictive behaviour got worse, many of our patients have been affected physically, mentally, and emotionally. The healing environment at Castle Health helps patients find ease again by replacing chaos with stability and peace. Physical exercise, a healthy diet and permanent nutritional counselling, along with comfortable accommodations ensure that the patients are properly cared for.
- A supportive community: Residents at Castle Health are surrounded by experienced and qualified professionals who are dedicated to supporting them in their journey back to sobriety. In our facilities, patients manage to develop meaningful and healthy friendships with other patients who face similar challenges and have similar recovery goals.
- An opportunity to focus on recovery: Recovery can be challenging and demanding. Residential recovery offers patients an opportunity to temporarily disconnect from the daily stress and personal, or social commitments and devote their attention entirely to therapy and their wellbeing. Being in a substance-free and safe environment that helps the patients develop new healthier coping life skills is a vital component of healing.
How to choose the right residential treatment centre?
In our residential treatment programmes, patients must adjust to a specific daily schedule that includes activities, various therapies, and meetings. At our centre, patients receive regular healthy meals and benefit from rest periods. The structure and stability of this routine support the regeneration of the mind and body.
The following 7 factors can help you decide if the treatment centre you chose for your recovery process is the right fit for you:
Before you choose a treatment centre’s programmes and amenities, make sure the facility has been accredited by… Credible residential treatment centres will usually display their accreditation on their homepage or a different page on their website.
Accreditation shows that the treatment centre respects rigorous quality standards and demonstrates that the medical staff is committed to offering the best care for their patients.
At Castle Health, we have experienced and highly trained personnel that includes a medical director, clinical director, therapists, nurse practitioners, a chef, equine therapy specialists and many others. Every member of our team was carefully selected based on their experience in successfully treating patients suffering from dependency and mental health disorders.
The therapies offered by a residential treatment centre are also very important. Our treatment centres offer both one-on-one and group therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, and medication-assisted treatment if needed.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment
Treating co-occurring disorders is an essential component for a successful recovery. In many cases, substance abuse may be a result of a mental health condition or it may trigger one, such as anxiety or depression. Treating only the addiction will leave the patient vulnerable to cravings and relapse after the rehab period is over.
Castle Health offers dual diagnosis treatment for all our patients. We help them detox, while also addressing underlying mental health issues that led to the addictive behaviour.
Detox is not enough for patients to be fully prepared to go back to their everyday life. Addiction affects both the body and brain, and during recovery, patients need patience and the right treatment to leave addictive habits behind and learn to live a sober life. When choosing a residential treatment programme, make sure the facility offers aftercare.
At Castle Health, patients may benefit from inpatient and outpatient treatment, along with online therapy.
Being surrounded by compassionate and caring people during your residential treatment is essential for your full recovery. Addiction can be very challenging, and patients need to be treated with empathy and understanding. At Castle Health, every member of our admissions team understands your situation and is focused on helping you get the support you need.
