Is residential treatment the right choice?

It can be difficult to know whether your adolescent requires a comprehensive Residential Treatment program. Before you decide whether Residential Treatment is the right choice for your adolescent, the team at Stonewater Adolescent Recovery Center will first perform a mental health assessment to better understand your adolescent’s environment and set of unique experiences. For most adolescents, residential recovery with around-the-clock supervision is a helpful option which provides a stable space to develop abstinence and critical life skills.

Stonewater Adolescent Recovery Center is a safe place where adolescents can receive substance use and mental health treatment with 24/7 support to develop the skills and abilities necessary to improve health, wellness, independence, continuing education and motivation to reach their full potential in a life of recovery. As teens come to understand substance use disorders and negative lifestyle influences, a space removed from these unhealthy external influences is imperative. At Stonewater, Residential Treatment is conducted in a secure, compassionate and motivational space to fully equip your adolescent for the journey ahead.

The Residential Program at Stonewater

Stonewater’s Residential Treatment services are provided to patients in the wooded hills of Northeast Mississippi. Stonewater sits on a tranquil, waterfront property surrounded by nature, creating a peaceful, safe place to begin the path to recovery. The grounds include a custom-built residential lodge, a state-of-the-art fitness facility, inviting counseling and therapy spaces and diverse recreational activities. During the intake meeting with an addiction recovery specialist, your teen will receive a customized treatment plan to be used throughout their stay with us. Residential Treatment programs begin at 30 days and can be extended to 60 or 90 days.

In residential recovery, your teen will receive individual therapy sessions with a dedicated therapist as well as group therapy sessions, meditation and mindfulness practices, physical fitness training, healthy meals made with locally grown produce and a variety of experiential therapies. Each teen has a daily schedule that fosters independence from negative influences both internally and externally. Every activity focuses on a specific aspect of therapy with regard to reducing stress, managing symptoms of mental health conditions and pursuing lifelong recovery. Becoming clean from drugs and alcohol and being surrounded by peers who are achieving the same goals will inspire your teen to do more. Every teen involved at Stonewater Adolescent Recovery Center has something amazing to contribute to the world and, with focus and positive guidance, they can discover the motivation to find this purpose.

The Best Time for Recovery Skill Development

Because adolescents are still in developmental stages where decision-making capabilities and personality haven’t completely matured, they are often most influenced by peers, rather than parents or other family members, during this time. Separating your teen from influential peer groups is often the most effective way to reduce social and behavioral pressures to abuse substances. The Stonewater Residential Treatment program will guide teens into healthy lifestyles in an environment removed from their normal social influencers.

Families are encouraged to participate in family counseling and collective group activity days as specified. Involving family members in the recovery process reestablishes comfort and care within the family unit. Your family will be involved in the treatment process as your teen advances through the program while still allowing therapists and counselors the space and respect needed to make a difference in your adolescent’s life.
