Substance Abuse Treatment, Explained

Substance abuse treatment is the best way to understand why you abused substances in the first place, and then continue treatment with therapy to work on those reasons. That’s where Royal Life Centers comes in. As an illustration, we guide you through recovery from start to finish, starting with abstinence and ending with true recovery—a new life that will be really worth living. 

For that reason, Royal Life Centers provides a full continuum of care within our substance abuse treatment for substance use disorders. Foundationally, our programs include medical detox, residential inpatient, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, outpatient, and sober living.

Medical Detox for Substance Abuse

Medical detox is typically the first step in substance abuse treatment. Granted, if you detox yourself completely off of a substance before seeking treatment, you may not require medical detox. However, depending on the severity of your addiction, and the substance of addiction, it is suggested that you seek professional medical care in order to detox. Indeed, certain substances, especially alcohol and benzos, can lead to serious health complications such as fatal seizures during withdrawal without proper medications and monitoring. Within the detox portion of substance abuse treatment, medical staff will safely remove all toxic substances from your body.

Residential Inpatient Programs

Residential inpatient programs are typically what most people think of when they hear the term substance abuse treatment. Following medical detox, where the toxins are removed from your system, you move into residential inpatient. Within this level of care which spans for a few weeks to a month, you will participate in intensive therapy, groups, and counseling. Most importantly, this highly structured setting is perfect to establish good habits before moving onto a less restrictive level of care.

Partial Hospitalization Programs/Intensive Outpatient Programs

People who continue treatment after residential inpatient increase the chance of achieving long term success. By the same token, these two phases are where you’ll be given much more freedom, and be able to explore your newfound sobriety in a safe and supportive environment. In fact, a quality substance abuse treatment program will continue your therapy sessions. For instance, Royal Life Centers goes above and beyond to create a customized program just for you.

Outpatient/Sober Living Programs

Completing substance abuse treatment is a marvelous accomplishment. Nevertheless, recovery is an ongoing process. In fact, you are never “cured.” Indeed, addiction is something you must remain vigilant against, or else it tries to take advantage of you. For this purpose, continuing substance abuse treatment into outpatient to help you reacclimate yourself into your community is a beneficial way to solidify your recovery. Additionally, living in a sober living program after completing substance abuse treatment is a great way to hold yourself accountable to peers and professionals while you build up your sobriety.
