The residential programs at Advanced Recovery Systems centers are designed to promote health, wellness and recovery in an environment that appeals to the senses as well as the spirit. Living at our centers full-time means our clients have the opportunity to focus their attention on recovery while reaping the benefits of intensive therapy.
Men and women aged 18 and older who participate in residential treatment are offered the highest level of evidence-based care. Our multidisciplinary team addresses the physical, psychological and spiritual needs of our clients through a combination of trusted, clinically proven therapies. Case managers and discharge planners work with our clients to maintain stability in their personal and financial lives while they undergo treatment.
Residential treatment offers numerous advantages to individuals in recovery; however, national statistics show that these programs are under-utilized. The Surgeon General’s Report on Alcohol, Drugs and Health reported that only one in 10 individuals received rehabilitation treatment for their substance use disorder in 2015.
Residential treatment is one of the core components of a comprehensive recovery program. It paves the way to a successful recovery by giving our clients these important advantages:
In residential treatment programs, clients have a full daily schedule of therapy, activities and meetings along with healthy meals and rest periods. The structure and stability of this routine help restore the mind and body to a healthy state.
At ARS, we believe in making world-class residential treatment as accessible as possible. Our recovery services are reasonably priced, and we accept most types of insurance. Our facilities are conveniently located near major sources of transportation, recreational areas and cultural centers (See: Our Rehabs Near You). By promoting health and wellness at all levels, clients will feel the healing effects of treatment and create lasting relationships that will help them throughout recovery.
Our residential treatment centers are part of a full continuum of recovery services. For most of our clients, treatment begins with a period of detoxification. Once they are medically stable and feel rested and mentally alert, clients are ready to make the transition to a residential program.
Our advanced therapies include:
Residential treatment can open the door to a fulfilling, meaningful life. To help our clients meet this goal, our residential programs draw from the latest evidence-based therapies.
In residential treatment, clients maintain close contact with their treatment team, working with staff on a daily basis. Our staffs comprise therapists, counselors, nurses, nutritionists and dietitians, case managers and holistic therapists. Physicians and psychiatrists prescribe and monitor treatment programs and guide the activities of the team. Together, these professionals form a strong, stable network that continues to sustain our clients long after they advance to the next phase in their recovery.
Recent research studies have shown that longer stays at residential treatment facilities may produce better outcomes. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, treatment as long as 90 to 120 days may be the most effective length of care. At ARS, we believe that the length of stay in treatment should be determined by the client, not by externally imposed guidelines.
In particular, clients with co-occurring disorders or complex conditions may need longer periods in treatment in order to fully address their needs.
Throughout the course of treatment, we continually monitor and assess the individual’s progress, revising the client’s specialized treatment program as necessary.
Effective treatment must begin with a comprehensive assessment and evaluation. Before recommending a course of treatment, all potential clients are carefully evaluated by credentialed professionals.
