With mental health issues on the up rise, residential treatment centers have become a necessary tool. A residential treatment center is mental health facility that provides care and therapy to individuals that struggle with mental illness, substance abuse, and other behavioral issues. A residential treatment center offers youth the proper treatment for their issues and disorders such as, school refusal, depression, anxiety, ADHD, OCD, bipolar disorder, substance abuse, and many others. A residential treatment center will often utilize multiple forms of therapy including, group, family, and individual to ensure the most holistic treatment possible.
Four Benefits of Residential Treatment Centers:
- Assessment: For some struggling youth who need a residential treatment center, they are unaware of the therapeutic approach they need. At most treatment centers, they provide a full comprehensive child assessment. This allows the program to gain a better understanding of the child’s needs and strengths, allowing them to focus on building upon them to make each student as successful as possible.
- Residential: A common goal of a residential center is to create a program that provides youth with a structured, home-like environment blending individual therapy, academics and student life. Youth who attend a residential treatment center are a part of an active community where they have the chance to build social skills and develop stronger relationships. The environment provided at residential treatment centers often help adolescents build self-confidence, trust, and stability.
- Academics: For most students who enter a residential treatment center, their academic performance is related to their struggles. Many programs offer an accredited academic program that provides youth with an individual academic plan, study skills, and classroom settings or individual attention with a credentialed teacher.
- Adventure: Many programs have off campus activities, that are structured therapeutic adventures designed to challenge student’s skills. Some of the off campus activities include, hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, canyoneering, and many others.
