Residential treatment is a truly transformative approach to recovery and sobriety. However, knowing if an individual is ready for residential treatment and understanding how it may benefit their recovery journey can be difficult. Each individual will have their journey with addictive substances, with unique needs and goals. Determining not just if an individual is ready for residential alcohol treatment or drug treatment but also ensuring that they are open and willing to engage in its transformational potential are crucial parts of recovery. Fortunately, our professionals at Hawaii Island Recovery can help each person best prepare for this important level of care. 

The Benefits of Residential Treatment

Being ready for residential treatment means being prepared for how residential treatment may benefit each journey to a healthy future, one free from the use of addictive substances. Residential treatment comes with important, around-the-clock care and support to address any challenges that manifest, including mental health needs.

In addition, peer and professional support are available on-demand to help individuals process urges and cravings commonplace throughout the recovery journey. Moreover, residential treatment fosters a carefully curated environment to help those in recovery physically and mentally separate from at-home stresses or reminders of past use that may compromise present recovery efforts.

This new and sober environment is paramount for meeting peers and breaking through feelings of isolation that can be prevalent due to substance use. Meeting others who understand and accept an individual for their dedication to sobriety can deconstruct stigmas and any other personal barriers that may impede their ability to fully commit to sober change. 

Residential treatment also empowers those seeking a healthy and sober future to explore a holistic approach to an entirely new lifestyle. With opportunities not just to address a person’s needs in addiction recovery but also to explore new hobbies, self-care outlets, daily routines, spiritual healing, and communication and life skills, each person in residential treatment can embrace recovery as a comprehensive, transformational approach that embodies the spirit of recovery at Hawaii Island Recovery.

How Do I Know If I Am Ready for Residential Treatment?

While residential treatment has many transformational benefits for those overcoming the use of drugs or alcohol, it can still be difficult to know if an individual is ready to embark on such a journey. Not only does this mean that each person will have to ask themselves, peers, supports, or Hawaii Island Recovery professionals if they would best benefit from residential treatment, but also if each individual themselves is emotionally prepared to embrace such change. 

Determining the Best Living Space

Addiction recovery is incredibly stressful, with any number of challenges and changes surfacing every day. Ensuring that each person has a stable and supportive living environment is necessary during this time. For those with less than supportive or understanding family or home life, residential treatment can provide the necessary change in scenery for a sober future. The structure and stability provided by a curated recovery space can be instrumental while first embracing new lifestyles and surrounding oneself with supportive individuals, peers, and professionals to facilitate a healthy mentality surrounding the decision to pursue sober change.

Being Open to a New Life

Addiction is a disease that encapsulates much more than just the use of drugs or alcohol. It affects entire lifestyles, with each person potentially building daily routines reliant on the use of such substances or around opportunities to engage with drugs and alcohol. Recovery demands that each individual not only be ready to cease the use of drugs or alcohol but also be open to challenging the routines and practices that were normalized as a result of their use. Being emotionally prepared to relinquish daily routines and establish new daily practices is necessary for each person to be ready for residential treatment.

Preparing for a new life also means being ready for the various forms of healing necessary. From grounding strategies and education about addiction as a disease to spiritual healing and more, residential treatment also encapsulates exploring several new experiences and perspectives from professionals and peers alike. 

Committing to Sobriety

Being ready for residential treatment also means being confident in each person’s decisions and commitment to a sober future. Residential programs at Hawaii Island Recovery last anywhere from 30 days to over 90, depending on each person’s unique needs, goals, and progress in recovery. Readying oneself to spend this time on-site at a dedicated recovery facility, working with professionals or workplaces to take this time, and organizing any other responsibilities on the homefront are all necessary to commit to residential treatment.
