Due to the complexity of addiction, treatment is never a simple process. At Recovery 360, we understand how overwhelming it can be to navigate the world of addiction treatment. We can help facilitate this process and provide the education needed for you to make the decision that is best for you, your family, or your loved one.
There are a variety of treatment types and styles to help meet each individual’s needs.
Inpatient treatment refers to addiction treatment in a residential facility. It is important for the individual with addiction and their loved ones to understand that inpatient treatment is not jail. Individuals receiving inpatient treatment receive therapy, treatment, and education in a safe environment where they can focus on their recovery without the triggers and stress of their daily environment. Treatment in these facilities can last 14 days to 6 months. Recovery 360 can help you decide which facility best meets the needs of you or your loved one’s situation.
Individuals may also receive treatment on an outpatient basis. This may occur after inpatient treatment, or if going to a residential treatment facility is not an option at the time. Outpatient treatment can be intensive (daily meetings with a counselor and/or group), or more basic, (meeting only a few times a week).
Finding the Right Treatment Center for You
When considering where to go for treatment, it’s important that you ask questions. The following is a list of questions we feel is important for you to ask to help you make the best decision.

2. What is the general licensing or education of the staff?
3. What type of treatment methods are used and how is your effectiveness measured?

Preparation for patient’s return and transition
When a loved one goes into in-patient treatment, families will often feel that they will come back “cured” or “fixed”. It is difficult for families to understand that the entire family system needs to change in order to support the individual when they return to the community. Recovery 360 will not only use the time that the individual is in treatment to work with the family to improve the family system and increase their understanding of addiction, but will also assist in the difficult and very stressful transition time when their loved one returns. Recovery 360 will facilitate the transition process by providing Monitoring Services, individual and family therapy.
Recovery 360 offers Monitoring Services to aide the individual returning home in their transition from treatment back into the community. More than half of those with addiction will relapse after leaving a treatment facility. Monitoring services provide a safety net of accountability for the individual and gives objective support to the individual and their family.
