When you are struggling with an addiction and are ready to seek support, one of the very best options is to remove yourself from all possible triggers and environments which have been associated with your substance abuse. The bottom line is any acceptance of help is positive and can be a lifeline to helping you recover. If you are considering an inpatient program, there are many benefits to this option you should consider.


Benefits of a Residential Drug Treatment Program
  1. Structure: These programs have multiple activities and treatments that can keep you from too much downtime, which, in many cases, can be problematic. They will keep you going throughout the day so that you won’t be spending your time craving and dwelling on your alcohol or drug of choice.
  2. Comprehensive Support: These programs have faculty and staff available and there for you 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If you find yourself in a situation where you feel like you can’t make it or you are in need of help, someone will be there throughout the entirety of the program at all times. This is particularly important for the initial stages of recovery when the chances of a relapse are the highest.
  3. Dry Environment: Alcohol and drugs are not present in a facility, so the risk of obtaining these substances very difficult, if at all possible. That makes it a much safer environment to seriously work on your recovery and have the best chance for sobriety.
  4. Socialization: You are surrounded by people just like you who are going through very similar situations and understand your plight, creating an environment that promotes acceptance and disincentivizes judgment. You may even develop very real and long-lasting relationships with some of the other members who are working towards sobriety with you.
  5. Nutrition: When many enter rehabilitation, their bodies have been ravaged by the substance abuse and they likely have not taken care of the appropriate nutritional requirements needed to be healthy. In order to heal, nutrition can be a powerful tool. These programs ensure that each patient is building their bodies back up through a balanced diet made for you by expert nutritionists.
  6. Integrative Therapies: Many therapy options, such as group counseling, one-on-one counseling, medical interventions, activities like yoga or meditation, massages, and even some holistic treatments, are usually included in a well-rounded in-patient recovery program.

Finding the Right Program for You

Everybody’s story and the situation is different, and finding the right combination of treatment options to help you be successful is important. Those that are alcoholics and those that suffer from mental disorders tend to do better in residential treatment programs that have a stronger structure and support model.

The needs that are most-fitting for you are that which are best served by in-depth discussions with an addiction specialist. A professional who understands the options available and the unique requirements of each person can better help you design a customized program. This personalization may offer you the best chances of achieving success.

  • Discovery Place was the answer for my son. He did the 90 day and then the step down program and sober living. We give this organization 10 stars. They met my son where he was …emotionally, mentally, physically. They helped him put his life back on track. Discovery Place employees care about their guests. If your son, brother, nephew, grandson or husband needs excellent supportive care THIS is indeed the facility.

  • I have remained sober and it is because of DP. DP is the best place there is, hands down. I keep everyone there in my prayers, and I encourage everyone there to take what they are practicing and do it in their lives, after.

  • Over the past year, I’ve been putting into actin what Discovery Place taught me, and I have experienced a complete perspective change of the world, and the people in it. I get to be a man of service and love today, and for that I am grateful to Discovery Place.

  • Discovery Place means the world to me. They showed me the tools that I’ve tried to use everyday in my life to think less often of myself, and more frequently of others. I am learning to lend a hand when I am able and to have a honest and humble relationship with God and the people around me. Not only am I clean and sober, but also I am happy and fulfilled.

  • When I got to Discovery Place my whole life was in shambles, but I didn’t know it. I spent 6 months in their programs, participating in all three phases, and was met with kindness and love all along the way. It is unbelievable to me, where I am now relative to where I was when I arrived at DP.

    Lance Duke
  • I can never say enough good things about Discovery Place and the people who work there. Before checking in to DP, I was out of options and out of answers. Fortunately, Discovery Place has a solution. Taking suggestions from the staff at DP saved my life, and as a result, I’m now more content and hopeful about life. I’m grateful for Discovery Place showing me how to live a healthy life so that I can become a better man and help the next guy.”
