There are many myths surrounding alcohol addiction. Of these, two of the most prevalent are the ideas that overcoming addiction must involve complete abstinence and that managing alcohol addiction must purely be a matter of will. In reality, the success of approaches like the Sinclair Method demonstrates that abstinence-based treatment models are not the only option and that if anything, abstinence is far more likely to result in relapse. Additionally, addiction specialists have known for decades that despite conventional wisdom, alcohol use disorder is a disease, and not merely a question of willpower. In the luxury residential treatment program at Deerhaven Gardens, we have heard the myths, and can say from first-hand experience that they are just that: convenient perhaps, but not accurate.
Taking control of an alcohol use problem takes time away from the stressors and triggers of everyday life. This is why the first step for many individuals struggling with addiction issues choose a residential program like the one at Deerhaven Gardens. If you are interested in learning more about the benefits of enrolling in a residential treatment program, Deerhaven Gardens has answers for you.
What Is a Luxury Residential Treatment Program?
The term “residential treatment program” refers to any program that includes staying in a facility 24/7 as part of its treatment. A residential program provides its clients with around-the-clock support, supervision, and treatment; there is always a member of staff available to provide care and guidance, no matter the time of day or night.
At Deerhaven Gardens, we also focus on the luxury aspect of residential treatment. The fact that our residential treatment program is administered in an amenity-rich environment is more than just a question of comfort; it is part of what makes the program so successful. By limiting our clientele to only women and limiting the number of clients we are treating at any given time to no more than six, we are ensuring that each client gets the help that she needs in an atmosphere that is conducive to recovery. And by providing these services in a beautiful, calming mountain resort replete with all of the amenities one could ask for, we allow our clients to focus on what truly matters: taking control of their alcohol use.
The Benefits of a Residential Treatment Program
In addition to our “smaller-is-better” approach, there are certain advantages that accompany residential treatment in a more general sense. Among these are:
- Residential treatment programs can offer more intensive therapy programs. In addition to the Sinclair Method, at Deerhaven, we provide a broad range of addiction therapy services, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, trauma-informed care, motivational interviewing, solution-focused brief care, biosound healing therapy, and psychoeducational therapy, among others.
- Although at Deerhaven Gardens we focus on individual treatment, the fact that you will be surrounded by women who are undergoing similar treatment using the Sinclair Method and who have similar recovery goals to yours is a singular benefit.
- Because of the secluded nature of a residential treatment program, clients are isolated from the pressures of everyday life. This means that they can focus on what matters most: taking control of their alcohol use. At Deerhaven, we take this aspect of recovery particularly seriously.
- A residential treatment program provides clients with a disciplined, structured approach to rehabilitation that other types of treatment programs cannot.
This list is, of course, far from comprehensive. The above benefits, however, can make all the difference between successful recovery and relapse and should not be taken lightly.
