n.noun


Residential treatment centers are a live-in health care facility providing therapy for multiple disorders including but not limited to substance abuse, mild to severe depressive disorders, bipolar disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder, Reactive Attachment Disorder and many other behavioral afflictions. Residential treatment is typically an option for those who have failed to achieve psychological wellness through traditional, therapeutic means. One of the many advantages to residential treatment is the constant availability of the healthcare staff, the therapies and the other resources needed to reap the benefits of recovery fully. 

Residential therapy requires clients to live on the grounds of the facility throughout their treatment. Living on grounds ensures the customer’s safety while they undergo intensive, treatment. Additionally, residential treatment centers are typically clinically focused and commonly provide treatment to adolescent teens with various disorders, diseases or conditions.
