– A Comprehensive Drug and Alcohol Treatment Program –

If you’re looking for residential substance abuse treatment in Virginia, but are struggling to find a program that will help you or your loved one get the care they need, you’re not alone. Many families are searching for the right program to help their loved one recover from addiction. Fortunately, our 28-day drug and alcohol addiction treatment center located in Richmond, VA could be the right fit for you.

What is Residential Substance Abuse Treatment?

Residential substance abuse treatment, also known as inpatient rehab, is a form of treatment that allows people to live at the facility they receive care. This type of treatment is intensive and usually lasts 28 days or more. It is often used for people who have relapsed after other forms of treatment or who have a strong dependence on drugs or alcohol. Residential substance abuse treatment is one of the most effective addiction treatment options.

Benefits of Residential Substance Abuse Treatment

There are many benefits to residential substance abuse treatment, especially for those struggling with addiction. In a residential treatment program, patients have 24/7 access to care and support. They are able to focus on their recovery without the distractions and temptations of everyday life.

Residential treatment programs also offer a variety of therapies and activities that aid in recovery. These may include individual and group counseling, 12-step programs, recreational activities, holistic activities and more. Additionally, patients in residential treatment usually have the opportunity to develop close bonds with other patients, which can provide ongoing support after they leave treatment.

What Happens During Our 28-Day Residential Treatment Program?

At Williamsville Wellness, we believe that the key to successful and lasting recovery is through individual attention. Where other addiction treatment centers in Virginia rely primarily on group therapy sessions, we provide 15+ one-on-one sessions per week with our multidisciplinary staff.

During our drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs, Williamsville Wellness addresses the body, mind, and spirit through a variety of techniques to help patients identify barriers to recovery. Within individual and group sessions, our patients are able to address risky behaviors, contributing factors to addiction, emotional and mental health, family issues, and the impact of addiction on their lives.

Features of Our Addiction Treatment Center

Throughout treatment, patients stay within one of our warm and welcoming houses – an environment for recovery much different than the clinical setting found at many other rehab centers. Our Richmond, Virginia addiction treatment center features shared bedrooms, a formal dining room, an in-house kitchen where nutritious meals are prepared, and a gym that features various workout machines/equipment as well as a massage chair.

Our Addiction Treatment Modalities

Williamsville Wellness offers addiction treatment based on individual needs. This means that we tailor our approach to each person, taking into account their unique circumstances. Our focus is on helping people heal their mind, body and spirit.

Therapists at Williamsville Wellness implement multiple approaches based on individual needs to address addiction and mental health problems. Therapy approaches include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
  • Trauma-Informed approaches
  • Schema Therapy
  • Solution-Focused Brief Therapy

Group therapy is a commonly used treatment modality for individuals suffering from addiction. Our group sessions tend to focus on interpersonal processing, skills building, and psychoeducational material to promote recovery.

On-site*, telephonic, or video conference sessions with family is critical for optimal for long-term recovery and wellness and is consistent with our treatment model. Patients are expected to engage in family session(s) with the clinical staff. Through family therapy, loved ones will be educated on addiction and learn how the entire family can support the patient. Family therapy can consist of half day on-site visits* or online sessions and include meetings with psychologists, therapists, and peer counselors to address areas such as recovery planning, rebuilding trust, parenting, and establishing emotional safety.

Mindfulness is the practice of maintaining a present focus on our thoughts, feelings, body sensations, and surrounding environments without creating judgment. When we practice mindfulness, our thoughts tune into what we’re sensing in the present moment rather than rehashing the past or imagining the future. This is particularly helpful for addicts who have difficulty tolerating emotional experiences. Patients will have plenty of opportunities to practice mindfulness meditations in therapy with our mindfulness coach.

Work with a therapist to address issues surrounding the expression of anger. Learn and practice techniques for calming down and responding to feelings of anger effectively and assertively. Anger management is based on the premise that anger is a normal emotion when expressed appropriately.

Confidential testing identifies strengths and weaknesses of our patients, including an analysis of their personality characteristics and cognitive capacity. Testing is just one tool we use to help the patient understand the core issues leading to their addictive behavior.

Seeing others who have struggled with drug or alcohol addiction and have been able to live successfully in recovery provides hope and inspiration for those still trapped by addiction. Support and guidance from others in recovery becomes a powerful motivator and a beacon of hope for our patients.

Our peer counselors help patients understand the 12-Step philosophy and facilitate step-work with patients. Patients attend on- and off-site* 12-Step meetings each week while in our program. In addition, the 12-Step philosophy can be integrated into individual sessions.

For patients who are ambivalent about 12-step philosophy, Williamsville Wellness also offers a 12-step alternative program: SMART principles for recovery. The SMART series focuses on applying scientific knowledge and reason to achieve recovery from addiction, with less emphasis on spirituality. Patients attend on- and off-site* SMART Recovery meetings each week while in our program.

Our patients have access to an onsite gym to work out as part of a healthy lifestyle. Also, balanced and nutritious meals are provided by our award-winning chef and can be tailored to dietary preferences.

Patients will learn life skills, such as cooking and meal planning that will help support a holistic recovery. Patients work with our chef once a week in this group experience.

What to Expect After Alcohol and Drug Rehab

We believe long-term addiction recovery and wellness is gained through ongoing treatment and support. Our team works closely with the patient to develop an individualized relapse prevention and aftercare plan. Typically, aftercare plans include a transition to outpatient support such as an intensive outpatient program (IOP), individual therapy, and psychiatric/medical follow-ups. In order to complete the Williamsville Wellness residential program, patients are expected to schedule outpatient therapy and IOP.

Does Insurance Cover Inpatient Rehab?

When it comes to inpatient rehab, insurance coverage can vary widely. Some policies may cover the full cost of addiction treatment, while others may only cover a portion. In some cases, rehab may not be covered at all.
If you have insurance, the first step is to contact your provider and find out what kind of coverage you have. Williamsville Wellness works with both in and out-of-network insurance policies.

If your insurance doesn’t cover our treatment program, there are still options available. Self-pay and payment plans are available to those who need them. There are also a number of government and non-profit organizations that may provide financial assistance for addiction treatment. For example, Medicaid and Veterans Affairs (VA) may cover a portion of residential substance abuse treatment costs.

Note: Williamsville Wellness does not accept Medicaid.
