For those who can’t control their drinking or drug use, consider residential treatment. Participants live onsite in one of our treatment centers supervised 24 hours a day, 7 days per week by knowledgeable, compassionate staff.
SSH has been in the treatment field for over 25 years—we know what works!
Clients entering residential treatment first participate in an orientation and assessment to help acclimate them to the program. This also lets our staff get to know them and build a rapport. New clients are then paired with a certified counselor, who will guide them through the entire treatment process.
The first week of treatment, clients work with their counselor to develop a treatment plan with achievable goals. The target? Living a healthier lifestyle, clean and sober.
Our daily schedule of educational and therapeutic groups supports the stabilization and early recovery processes. Counselors help coordinate services, tailoring them to individual needs, work with family members/loved ones if the client desires, and troubleshoot any issues that may arise.
In addition to individualized treatment planning, counselors and clients work together to identify a discharge plan that supports long-term recovery. We also offer legal system advocacy, transportation to appointments, medication monitoring, healthy snacks and meals, access to fitness equipment, and recreational opportunities during treatment.
Residential treatment clients benefit from living with others who have gone through similar experiences. You’ll be paired with another resident—a “peer buddy"—upon admission.
Peer buddies help new clients learn about program expectations and the daily schedule, while providing invaluable support at an often stressful time. This initiates the process of showing clients how to build a network of peer support that will serve them after they return home.
Clients may have family members that are interested in learning more about recovery and how they can manage their own stress and issues relating to their loved one’s substance abuse. SSH recognized the need for family support and started a family educational program many years ago. Family members are free to attend this program on Saturdays at no cost.
Residential treatment is not “cookie cutter." We individualize the program based on your needs. The average stay is around 28-30 days, but this can be adjusted as clinically appropriate.
