Residential Rehabilitation

Residential treatment is the highest level of rehab services for patients who are diagnosed with alcohol addiction. The inpatient rehab programme sometimes includes a social detox a well as a comprehensive and structured programme in a residential setting. Usually for no less than 30 days. The primary goal of residential rehab is to provide a supportive and therapeutic environment where individuals can focus on their recovery journey without the distractions and temptations of the outside world. This involves a combination of individual counselling, group therapy, 12-step programme, educational sessions, relapse prevention, coping mechanisms, and life skills training. By immersing themselves in a caring environment, individuals can focus on their recovery, develop healthy coping mechanisms, and gain the skills necessary for long-term sobriety.

30 day residential programme

Inpatient treatment for alcoholism begins with learning about your specific condition. Because addiction is a disease that affects your body, mind and spirit, a variety of dedicated professionals and recovered individuals are used. A rehab is a supportive, educational setting providing a safe and supportive environment to study and practice these principles.

Ongoing recovery/ aftercare

A comprehensive residential rehab programme will also focus on developing an aftercare plan (exit plan) to support individuals as they transition back into their regular lives. This may involve referrals to outpatient counselling, 12-step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), and other community resources for ongoing support.

Many residential rehabs offer an after-care programme at no additional cost. These programmes are crucial for helping individuals maintain their sobriety and prevent relapse. Many aftercare programs incorporate participation in 12-step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or other support groups.

The long term outcome

Sobriety can have numerous positive long-term outcomes for individuals.   Prolonged alcohol use can take a toll on the body, leading to various physical health issues.   Sobriety often brings about improved mental health and emotional stability. It can alleviate symptoms of anxiety, depression, and mood swings that may have been exacerbated by alcohol use.   Maintaining sobriety can help repair damaged relationships and establish healthier connections.   It's important to note that everyone's journey in recovery is unique, and the long-term outcomes of sobriety can vary from person to person. However, with a commitment to sobriety and ongoing support, individuals can experience significant positive changes in various aspects of their lives.


Prices vary depending on the type of room. Typically costs will be around $20,000 to $25,000 for a 30 day programme which is all inclusive. Contact your preferred provider for up to date costs.
