Residential Treatment

Substance abuse treatment may be provided in a variety of settings — outpatient, residential treatment, or while in confinement for those convicted of crimes. In many cases, substance abuse treatment that occurs in residential treatment facilities will involve some type of therapeutic services provided over a sustained period of time, and may address issues such as motivation, problem solving, and developing skills to resist substance abuse or other problem behaviors.
