Residential substance abuse treatment refers to a short-term (30 day) or long-term (more than 30 day) arrangement, where clients live in a therapeutic environment, alongside other clients, with 24-hour supervision and access to on-site clinicians. The general intent is to provide the tools that will allow clients to cease substance abuse in order to avoid the negative psychological, legal, financial and health consequences. Clients typically suffer from symptoms of dependence on psychoactive substances such as alcohol, prescriptions drugs or various “street drugs” such as heroin, amphetamines, or cocaine.
