Quitting a drug or alcohol addiction requires support. However, some people require extra support through an extended residential program. This type of long-term rehab gives patients a safe place to focus on their mental, physical, and emotional health as they work toward sobriety. At Baltimore Detox Center, our extended residential program provides the foundation for genuine, long-term recovery.
What Is Long-Term Rehab?
Long-term residential treatment is an option for getting away from everything to put all focus on recovery. This option means that patients live at the treatment facility as they seek recovery through various forms of therapy. These therapies often include the same types of individual and group programs as other types of rehab. However, these therapy sessions happen more often, giving patients even more time to work through personal issues that led to drug or alcohol abuse.
The number of patients at a long-term rehab facility can influence the amount of personal care each patient gets. For instance, at Baltimore Detox Center, the facility has twenty-six beds. Therefore, each patient can receive the individualized attention from staff they need to get better.
Who Benefits from a Long-Term Residential Treatment Program?
Long-term rehab benefits several specific groups of people seeking recovery. These groups include:
- Patients who need a safe place away from their lives for recovery
- Individuals who did not feel they succeeded with shorter recovery programs
- Those who have experienced a relapse
- Patients who want or need additional support
Long-term substance abuse recovery programs at Baltimore Detox Center include personal support, individualized care, and a safe environment to foster healing of the body and mind.
Those who need a safe place for recovery can find a supportive environment in a residential program away from triggering people or situations they may experience in their daily lives. By staying away from things that promote substance use, patients have fewer hurdles toward successfully recovering.
However, for some people, outpatient programs may not provide enough support to sustain lasting recovery. Those who have gone through lower levels of care may need the extra intensity of long-term rehab to make a breakthrough in recovery.
Patients who relapsed may want to change their recovery choice by going through long-term residential treatment instead. Long-term rehab includes a relapse prevention treatment program to reduce the chances of returning to a recovery center.
Lastly, long-term rehab offers 24-hour support for people who need extra help in their path toward giving up drugs or alcohol.
What Happens During Long-Term Rehab?
During long-term rehab at Baltimore Detox Center, patients have several forms of therapy to help in different ways. For instance, group therapy ensures that patients have help from their peers in the program. Additionally, individual therapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), gives patients a chance to learn about personal coping methods and how to fight the thoughts and emotions they have about addiction.
Other treatment options that patients may experience during long-term rehab include:
- Dual diagnosis treatment program
- Family therapy program
- Meditation therapy
- Community reinforcement and family therapy (CRAFT) treatment
- 12-Step program
- Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
- Depression treatment
- Anxiety treatment
The above treatments represent a handful of the many options that the treatment team may choose from when planning the patient’s recovery program. Each patient will receive care based on what they need from the program. Moreover, with customized care that includes how patients interact in their personal lives with friends and family, recovery with long-term rehab is possible.
