After detox, the residential treatment program is the second phase of mental health and addiction treatment where our clients are under the 24/7 care and supervision of out skilled clinical team.
At AKUA Mind & Body, every participant undergoing our residential treatment program receives comprehensive care right from the beginning.
Our highly qualified and dedicated therapists and case managers work to tailor individual recovery plans in such a way that all of their unique needs are addressed.
At AKU’s residential treatment centers, we focus on lasting sobriety and mindfulness-based relapse prevention. Our unique programs combine the time-tested Eastern techniques such as yoga and acupuncture with the Western scientific approach to medication management, physical exercise and more.
Each client is assigned a treatment team consisting of a therapist, a physician, a dietitian, a nurse, and ancillary staff who will provide medication, psychotherapy, lead group discussions, and ensure each client is learning how to adopt positive coping skills and conflict resolution skills.
On average, an individual will participate in five to six hours of therapy each day.
The following are specific treatments that are offered at a residential rehabilitation facility:
AKUA Mind and Body is a full-service treatment program that offers a wide range of “east meets west” treatment modalities for many different populations struggling with substance use and mental health disorders. We offer both intensive inpatient programs as well as outpatient treatment. AKUA Mind & Body works diligently with each client and their family to ensure that treatment plan is specifically tailored to their needs, and not just their disorder.
Residential treatment programs typically last 30–90 days, depending on each client’s needs. In some instances, clients will take part in a shorter inpatient treatment program, such as 28-30 days, and then transition into an outpatient care program that lasts much longer. Although some inpatient programs only last 28 days, the most effective inpatient programs last 90 days or longer, per the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
Co-occurring disorders are substance abuse disorders that occur in the presence of mental health disorders.
Studies show that one in five Americans is diagnosed with a mental health disorder, and within this group, approximately 9 million Americans are also suffering from a substance abuse disorder.
An individual can be struggling with alcohol addiction but may be diagnosed with anxiety or depression at the time of residential treatment admission. Many substance abuse disorders can trigger the mental health disorder, or vice versa. It is important to treat the substance abuse disorder simultaneously for an individual to fully recover.
Residential treatment at AKUA Mind & Body has a specialized treatment track for individuals who have a substance abuse disorder co-occurring with a mental health disorder.
