Should I Stay In Treatment Long-Term?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Transitional care programs maintain emotional support: Over the course of six months or longer, you create friendships with staff members and recovery peers which give you support. For those early months of the recovery process, a consistent flow of emotional support is critical for keeping your head up and charging forward. You have people who have seen how far you have come. In moments when you forget, they are right there to remind you.
  • More time working on yourself and changing your life: Addiction and alcoholism can last for years. Treatment should last for a long period of time as well. When you go to treatment, you are taking special time in your life to heal, learn, grow, and most importantly, you’re saving your life. It cannot be put any other way- when you go to treatment you’re learning to save your life by learning how to live without drugs and alcohol.
  • Learning to take care of yourself: Staying in treatment is about so much more than staying away from drugs and alcohol. Recovery is a lifestyle that requires you to change every area of your life. You’re learning how to do things in a whole new way which promotes self-efficacy and independence. Taking care of yourself is something you’ve only done through drug and alcohol abuse, no matter how successful your life has looked on the outside. Taking time to reinforce and practice life skills in a safe environment has benefits for a lifetime.
  • Maintaining therapy: At Harmony Place, we highly emphasize the relationship between a client and their individual therapist. Our residential treatment program has clients meet for long hours with their individual therapist three times a week, a high ration for treatment. As clients transition through our lower levels of care, they maintain the therapeutic relationship and the consistency of regularly meeting with a therapist as part of their routine. For the first year of recovery, regular therapy is an essential for continual growth, accountability, and exploration.
