  • Recovery In The Light

    Thousands of centers across the United States, and hundreds in South Florida, offer treatment. Our outpatient program is designed for clients who have either ended or not attended an inpatient program. Most clients who attend outpatient treatment are taking a preliminary step toward recovery, and want to complete a program that helps them while allowing them to carry on with their lives. Clients who choose outpatient care often have other obligations, including at work, at school, or within their families. These obligations can make a 30-day inpatient program impossible. For these individuals, outpatient treatment is often the best answer.

Treatment Programs Offered at Residential Treatment Centers in Illinois?

Residential treatment centers offer intensive treatment to people who may benefit from immersing themselves in treatment away from home, work, and other daily stressors. These facilities are commonly referred to as rehab centers, in part because they are frequently associated with alcohol and drug recovery programs. Rehab centers treat more than just alcohol and drug addiction, though, and each facility may specialize in treating a specific condition, such as disordered eating or mood issues.

Though there may be some differences among establishments, residents can expect to meet with a mental health professional that will carry out a mental health assessment resulting in an individual treatment plan detailing the mental health services to be provided, the reasons for each service, and the length of treatment. Programs tend to run anywhere from several days to several months, or longer.

Even short-term residential treatment programs have proven to be effective in addressing concerns such as acute tobacco dependency. An intensive eight-day program, for example, demonstrated positive outcomes even six months after treatment. These results were significantly better than for smokers who submitted to outpatient treatment alone. Treatment centers may offer outpatient options as well, for those who prefer to return home on evenings or weekends, and as follow-up for former residents.
