What is a Residential Treatment Center?

Residential treatment centers are programs designed for teenagers with a wide range of diagnoses that offer therapeutic services by trained professionals in a structured environment. Residential treatment centers address teen’s individualized needs in a group setting and offer a support system that helps teens make lasting changes in their lives.

This level of care not only minimizes the chance of your adolescent running away or being influenced by unsupportive peers, but also delivers an uninterrupted atmosphere where teen students can gain perspective, grow up, and achieve an improved level of maturity while addressing behavioral obstacles.

Residential Treatment Center vs Inpatient Hospitalization

Residential treatment is a step down from inpatient treatment. While there is still structure and supervision, it offers more of a home-like environment. This means processing groups and therapy sessions are spread throughout the week and there are more opportunities to socialize or participate in recreation activities. Many residential treatment centers, like Elevations RTC, also offer accredited academic programs so that students do not fall behind in school. While inpatient treatment is usually short-term, residential treatment can last several months to a year, depending on how an individual responds to treatment. 

Inpatient hospitals are a good fit for teenagers who need immediate crisis intervention, if they are struggling with self-harm, suicidal ideation, or withdrawing from substances, while residential treatment centers help teens practice incorporating healthier coping mechanisms into their everyday life.

Substance Use Treatment in Residential Programs for Teens

If you are considering an addiction rehab center for your troubled teen, then our successful substance use therapy program may be the answer to your prayers. Often, when parents recognize that their son or daughter is struggling with drug addiction or other types of substance use, they panic and begin to blame themselves. Panic and self-blame is natural, but be assured that your loved one’s addiction is not likely your fault. Experimenting with substances is typically a sign of deeper emotional struggles rather than the primary problem. Many teens turn to substances when they are struggling to cope with stressful emotions and experiences in a healthy way.

Elevations RTC provides more than just rehabilitation for adolescents. Through our unique “5 Peaks” program, our students experience a top-notch clinical & medical program, college preparatory academics, exciting adventure-based activities, planning for the future, and strong leadership value training. Also, we are a recovery center. Here your child can recover from their struggle with substance use and addiction. Your loved one will acquire healthier habits and become both physically and emotionally wholesome again. Elevations RTC has been successfully functioning as a residential treatment center for years. This experience as a recovery center has provided us a level of expertise, and our proven results can’t be equaled.
