Residential treatment centers are a live-in health care facility providing therapy for substance abuse, mental illness, or other behavioral problems. Residential treatment is used after traditional therapy, or addiction treatment fails to treat an individual effectively who suffers from psychological and addictive issues.
Residential treatment centers cater to adults and adolescents. Although similar in their treatment methods, residential treatment centers for adolescents differ from adult residential treatment, by offering an academic curriculum to its teenage enrollees. Additionally, residential treatment is a viable option for troubled teens as it provides both treatment and educational services.
Residential treatment is one of the most widely utilized treatment programs for troubled teens. These specialized facilities provide teens, who display out of control behaviors, the opportunity to achieve psychological restoration.
