Inpatient Drug Addiction Treatment (RTC)

New Choices Treatment Centers Offers Extensive Support, Quality of Care, Medical Expertise and Help to Those Struggling to Attain Sobriety

Chaos and instability are the antithesis of recovery, and residential treatment, a long-term addiction treatment plan, provides a safe, secure environment to help you heal. We offer residential services at our small yet fully staffed 40-bed campus, where our staff-to-client ratio far exceeds the national average and you’ll have access to both traditional and alternative and complementary therapies to provide you with the best chance of lasting recovery.

From your first day of care through your successful transition into an alumnus, where you may support others in recovery, we are committed to helping you start practicing new ways of living and bringing you into our thriving community. But long term treatment center is a term that’s often misunderstood and confusing. Here are the facts.

What Is a RTC Program?

A RTC program is a long-term option, taking a few weeks to complete, for those that have suffered through addiction and mental health problems. There are also different forms or stages of long-term treatment, including:

  • Initial drug and alcohol detox. Detoxification, detox as it’s more commonly known, is the first step toward full recovery, and our team closely monitors your full health to ensure all substances are removed safely to release your dependence on them. We have fully licensed nursing staff on-site 24 hours a day and our Medical Director is on call when he is not on-site with our patients.
  • Around-the-clock support in our facility. Overcoming addiction has a far greater chance of success when you’re surrounded by people who truly care and support you, and in our long term care facility, we’re able to provide a higher tier of support. We have Recovery Coordinators (RC) on-site 24 hours a day to help with all your needs. Our clinical team will meet with you while in detox daily, then two individual sessions per week with your counselor and access to a case manager as needed.
  • Rebuilding relationships within our community. Those receiving services in our inpatient, residential addiction treatment program also begin building new relationships within a tranquil, supportive community to give the mind, body and soul a chance to fully heal. We have alumni clients come on-site to share their experience, strength, and hope with our residential clients.
  • Transitional support into intensive outpatient treatment (IOP). Part of a successful plan of care hinges on full support during the transition from residential to outpatient care. This provides core skills and emotional stability to allow you to return to society and thrive. Our IOP counselors will get to know you while you are in residential care as they come on-site once a week for groups.
  • Helping others and continuing to provide support. Many who have completed our program go on as alumni to help others entering treatment and recovery as well, creating a circle of trust and recovery that will endure. Our alumni meets once a week and during this time they get to know our residential clients by name.

Inpatient or Residential Treatment Versus Outpatient Treatment

Unlike IOP, long term drug treatment is a fully immersive process that helps you explore “your story:” your mental resistance and fear that has limited your ability to thrive and function in the world in a safe and secure environment. This is an intensely holistic experience of medical, clinical, and physical intervention that begins the transformative process from isolation to thriving within a matter of weeks.

Additional core functions of residential programs for drug or alcohol abuse, as well as those with co-occurring mental health disorders, include:

  • Support from medical, clinical, recovery coaches and recovery advocates each week, averaging more than 10 weekly contacts from 8 or more staff members without the worry of traveling to group therapy.
  • Creating a deep, emotional, mental and spiritual resilience in our empowerment approach to help you face challenges that have interfered with your recovery attempts in the past, including various behavioral therapies and complementary and alternative practices.
  • Uses a layered multimodal, multidisciplinary approach to connect clients to others and themselves from the initial process of stabilization in detox through healthy living and helping others.
  • Overcoming substance abuse through respectful, meaningful therapeutic engagement and problem-solving modalities between clients and their therapist, recovery coach, recovery coordinator, peer recovery support team, physician, psychiatrist, nurses, and peers.
  • Providing a tranquil and safe environment to help you feel renewed, stabilized and empowered to achieve lasting results and healthy living.

While each of these functions occurs in IOP, they’re taken to a higher level of intensity and safety in a residential setting. This provides the best outcome to lessen your cravings and create a the most comprehensive treatment plan possible. Plus, lower staff-to-client ratios ensure you’re able to participate and feel valued throughout the whole experience.

When Is a Residential Drug Treatment Program the Right Fit?

Inpatient rehab or any medically assisted inpatient program can feel overwhelming, and many may feel unsure whether such treatment is the right fit. However, there are a few ways to know when residential treatment is a better alternative to outpatient care, including the following.

You Continue to Experience Trouble Staying Sober on Your Own or in Outpatient Treatment

Multiple attempts to achieve sobriety and experiencing the negative effects of relapse on your own is a clear indicator that residential drug addiction treatment is necessary. You may have attempted numerous options on your own, including attending group meetings or stopped using drugs or alcohol for an extended period, but then, you suddenly find yourself in the grip of addiction again.

A residential program can help you build the tools and skills to thrive.

You Could Be Living With a Co-Occurring Mental Health Disorder

Many that endure the cycle of addiction may also have a co-occurring mental health disorder. Such comorbidities increase the risk of relapse, especially if the underlying condition isn’t treated. But finding such issues can be difficult in outpatient settings.

Clinical care professionals can help to find any such underlying issues and determine the best way to treat them and ensure you’re able to get control over this dual diagnosis at last.

Your Environment Contributes to Your Addiction

Our surroundings greatly influence our behaviors, and if your environment isn’t conducive to recovery, it could lead to an inability to achieve sobriety and healthy living. You may need assistance with medical care, maintaining a balanced diet and avoiding scenarios where you may abuse substances.

Residential treatment creates a fully holistic environment to keep these factors from affecting your judgment and health.

You’re Experiencing Physical Symptoms of Addiction, Including Withdrawal

Physcial withdrawal symptoms are perhaps the most recognizable sign that residential, long-term drug treatment is best. Depending on the severity of addiction, additional medications can help to prevent the worsening of symptoms. Further, physical symptoms of addiction, ranging from cardiovascular disease, contraction of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), anemia, seizures or other engaging in other risky behaviors, indicate you will benefit from residential care.

Residential care can help you identify and treat these physical symptoms safely and holistically and with the right guidance and support.
