12 Benefits of a Long Term Treatment Program

Long term addiction treatment can set you up for lasting sobriety. At Royal Life Centers, we treat drug and alcohol addiction holistically, treating the mind, body, and spirit for long term recovery. Substance use disorder disrupts all aspects of life, so part of recovery is teaching a new way of life. Long term treatment programs offer many benefits.
At Royal Life Centers, we provide a number of treatment programs at varying lengths. Our treatment programs include: medical detox, a residential inpatient program, a partial hospitalization program (PHP), an intensive outpatient program (IOP), an outpatient program (OP), sober living and graduate housing.
All of our treatment options provide intensive therapies. Royal Life Centers provides each guest with a primary therapist, upon their arrival to our treatment facility. Primary therapists will oversee that individual guest’s therapeutic treatment for their stay, building trust and offering support along the way. Our guests are also given a case manager, who is responsible for collaborating with guests to develop an individualized treatment plan— which we call an individual service plan (ISP). Our guests are collaborated with, so that we can be clear of their goals and needs through out the treatment process. In addition to individual therapy sessions, Royal Life Centers also provides group therapy, support groups, adventure therapy, activity therapy, and equine therapy.
Royal Life Centers treats many addictions, with programs that vary in length and are designed to follow our guests through the recovery process. No matter what your addiction may be, Royal Life Centers can help you get your life back from addiction. Our programs defy the normal conception of a rehabilitation center, with programs that offer many freedoms and individualized treatment. Long term treatment is recommended for optimal success in lasting sobriety.

Here are 12 benefits of a long term treatment program:

1. Support
Long term treatment programs offer support in every sense. At Royal Life Centers, we help our guests as they navigate the recovery process, offering support to help guide them.
2. Coping Skills
In addiction treatment, you learn coping skills to deal with stressors. A long term treatment program will offer you opportunities to learn more coping skills and practice them.
3. Safe Space
A long term treatment program offers a safe environment that has support, medical staff, and peers who all keep the space safe.
4. Learn a Balance
Long term treatment allows guests to find a balance between life and recovery, while you add in stressors like work and other situations or relationships. We teach guests how to balance life in a safe place with lots of support available to them.
5. Therapy Sessions
Even in our lightest level of care, we offer behavioral therapies, group therapies, support groups, and individual therapy sessions. We also provide adventure therapy, activity therapy, and equine therapy to enhance the recovery process.
6. Comfort
We offer comfort. Guests are able to experience more freedoms, while still having the comfort of a support system and their therapists. Our facilities are comfortable and accommodating.
7. Behavioral Health Stabilization
Our medical professional staff is available to provide medications along with behavioral therapies, to ensure optimal mental/behavioral health.
8. Making Meetings
Making 12 step meetings like Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous meetings is easy while you’re in long term treatment. Royal Life Centers provides transportation to and from various meetings each day so that you can put your recovery first.
9. Knowledge of Drug Addiction
Through intensive therapy and psychoeducational groups, our guests learn about the root cause of why they fell into drug addiction. Long term treatment allows for guests to have the opportunity to explore their thoughts and feelings, to understand why they turned to drugs in the first place.
10. Self-Awareness
Along with intensive therapy, guests gain an invaluable sense-of-self. This makes the recovery process easier as they can identify things that may disrupt their recovery, and learn how to best manage these things.
11. Confidence
Guests will gain confidence in their capabilities as they learn to manage life circumstances without having to pick up a drink or drug. This confidence will allow guests to redefine their lives.
12. Guidance through the Recovery Process
Guests will have guidance through out their recovery process. Guests gain access to their own case manager, who will help them with anything from legal issues to applying for government assistance.
Addiction treatment is always helpful for those who struggle with alcohol use disorder or substance use disorder. Short term treatments like 30 day programs are helpful, but it is proven that longer term treatment is more effective for lasting sobriety. Long term drug rehabs are also advanced in their ability to manage mental health circumstances as well. The amount of time spent in a long term rehab will reap many more benefits that are best explained through experiencing them. Our long term programs will set you up for a happy, healthy, and successful life in sobriety, which is something you just can’t explain. Our substance abuse treatment offers you the tools to rebuild your life, giving you confidence in your ability to handle anything life may bring— without needing to alter your mind. Our guests are filled with gratitude after their treatment process, and the benefits are far from being measurable.
