Why Long-Term Residential Treatment is the Best Option – Especially During a Pandemic

Long-Term Residential Treatment is a safe option with a high rate of success.

One reason for long-term residential treatment: The 2020 coronavirus pandemic has increased addiction and complicated recovery.  Achieving sobriety and achieving recovery are two vastly different objectives.  Most people who are addicted to drugs or alcohol can achieve a day or two of sobriety, and some mistakenly believe that since they can do that, they aren’t really addicted, or they can quit any time they want.

The 2020 pandemic has changed that drastically.  Now in many places, public meetings are not permitted, and even where gatherings are still allowed, many people are afraid to be around strangers who may or may not take social distancing or wearing masks seriously.  People must consider if going to a meeting is worth the risk of becoming infected with COVID-19.

Many support groups have changed from in-person to virtual. Virtual meetings are certainly better than nothing, but they don’t offer the level of support found during in-person meetings.  Unfortunately, some people just stop going because the virtual meetings don’t feel like the in-person meetings.  Without the needed support,  recovery becomes more difficult and relapse becomes even more common.

For someone looking for recovery, the most logical treatment option might be long-term residential treatment.  In a long-term treatment program, safety concerns are greatly reduced when all residents and staff have been tested for COVID-19 and individuals are tested and must be negative before they are admitted into the program.

In addition to the instant opportunity for camaraderie and peer support, care in a long-term treatment facility offers more intensive, individualized, and focused care than peer-support meetings.
