What Types of Addiction Does a Residential Facility Treat?
Most inpatient treatment centers offer a wide range of options, though there are some facilities that focus specifically on alcohol abuse, whereas others have a wider range of options for drug abuse recovery.
Other facilities cater more to addicts who suffer from prescription drug abuse and may require a more supervised detoxification process. Many facilities will also treat process addictions (gambling, shopping, eating disorders, etc.) if necessary.
While drug addiction and alcoholism can send an individual down a troublesome path, it is important to address the other underlying issues many addicts struggle with, such as trauma, codependency and mental illness.
On top of imparting healthier coping mechanisms, many treatment centers will often lead group therapy or teach various life skills to help diminish the possibility of future relapses.

What Are the Differences in Inpatient Treatment Models?
Many inpatient treatment centers today use a 12-step model to help patients recover from the disease of drug addiction or alcoholism, although some prefer the non-faith-based SMART Recovery® model. The 12-step model often involves attending meetings and working the 12 steps of AA or NA. SMART Recovery similarly stresses group-based support.
Some inpatient facilities may offer a wider range of options when dealing with patients who may have a dual diagnosis. Speaking to a referral professional about which facilities offer the best options can help immensely in making the right choice as to which program is best suited to meet your loved one’s or your own unique needs.
