Residential treatment is a type of treatment
for drug and alcohol dependence and residential treatment
is considered the most effective type. Residential treatment
is founded on evidence that drug abuse and addiction behaviors
need to be fully interrupted before they can get better. By
physically taking a person suffering from drug and alcohol
abuse and putting them in residential treatment, you are taking
them away from drug using peers and an environment that enables
them to drink and use. According to the National Institute
on Drug Abuse, the more residential treatment received by
an alcoholic or addict, the better their chances for long
term abstinence. Spencer Recovery Centers residential treatment
facility has been serving the recovery community for over
a decade and we think if you read on you will see that it
can work for you and your loved ones as well.
The goal of Spencer Recovery Centers is to show
our clients how to achieve long lasting sobriety and emotional
and mental stability. Drug and alcohol abuse can either cover
up or exaggerate emotional problems and chemical imbalances
like depression, isolation, aggression and problems with authority.
Spencer addresses the physical and mental aspects of any disorder.
Our staff physician and psychologist monitor our clients throughout
their stay. From the initial assessment upon admission to
tracking the progress of the customized treatment plan, our
staff professionals have seen it all and can help you or your
loved one too.
The length of stay at residential treatment
ranges from 3 to 6 weeks and can be adjusted depending on
needs. The most important aspect of residential treatment
is for the client to be removed from the drug using environment
and put in a safe place where he or she can take an honest
look at their life. According to the National Institute on
Drug Abuse residential treatment does not have to begin voluntarily
to work. Many of our clients come in after family interventions.
Call us to find out how an intervention can work for you too.
While in Spencer residential treatment, our
clients are kept busy with writing and reading assignments
and several group and individual counseling sessions a day.
Family group therapy is also encouraged for those having communication
problems with the family and substance education classes are
made available to clients and families as well.

of all ages and walks of life find happiness based on honest
living and we know we can help you too. If you are having
