At our residential treatment program in Los Angeles, we’re often asked questions by people unsure if the program is right for them. One question we get quite a bit: “do I really need a residential treatment program?” It’s a valid question. After all, in our modern age, it can seem like everything comes faster and faster, so why should you step out of your life for one to three months for your treatment? The truth is, going to a residential treatment facility can help you to develop the kind of life skills that will help you to stay sober long after you leave.
A Structured Residential Treatment Program in Los Angeles
The life of an addict is chaotic at best. Seemingly nothing happens on time or when it should. At our residential treatment facility, life is the opposite: it’s structured. It’s not so structured as to be oppressive, but it is structured in such a way that it can help you develop a routine free of worry. Instead of being concerned about what you’re going to do from one moment to the next, your day is laid out ahead of you. That way, you can really take the time to focus on yourself, without the distractions and obstacles that come from having to deal with a constantly-shifting schedule.
A Community that Cares
Imagine a place full of great people who have each other’s backs, who support each other, and help each other to grow and develop. For almost every addict, that’s one thing they don’t have. Here at CARUS, we’re quite proud of the supportive community that we’ve constructed. Here, everyone, from the staff to the patients and everyone else, helps build our supportive environment. Instead of feeling threatened, ostracized or out of place, you can take advantage of the real, tangible benefits that come from being in a positive environment.
A Community that Knows What You’re Going Through
Many of our patients have spoken of how that’s one of the best parts of our community. No one here judges you. No one here misunderstands. Just about everyone you’ll encounter at CARUS knows exactly what you’re going through. In fact, so many of them have been in your exact shoes. What’s so rewarding about our community is how it allows our patients to grow together. For example, when you arrive, you might see someone who’s further along in their recovery than you. You can learn from them, see how they operate, and then, once they’ve moved on and you’ve progressed through your recovery, a new patient can learn from you.
It doesn’t hurt that we’ve built CARUS in an utterly gorgeous part of the San Fernando Valley, either. Here, at our residential facility, you can partake in so many therapies and opportunities that would be hard to find elsewhere. We can put together an individualized therapy plan just for you.
