The 3 Benefits of Short-Term Residential Treatment
A stay at a short-term mental health facility could be just what your child needs to improve their mental health. Here are three benefits of short-term programs:
1. Significant first step
Short-term residential treatment is a significant step in your child’s mental health journey.
A short-term residential program is an excellent option if your child needs a higher level of care than outpatient therapy. Short-term programs can help them overcome mental health challenges and reach their full potential.
Short-term residential treatment programs are frequently covered by insurance.
Short-term residential programs are shorter in duration than long-term residential care, making them more affordable while still giving a high level of intense care. These programs are frequently reimbursed by insurance.
Short-term residential treatment requires less of a time commitment than long-term residential care but is still effective.
Short-term programs have a length of stay between 30 and 90 days. During this time, your child participates in robust therapy sessions and has access to psychiatric services. They also receive an aftercare program that will help them build a solid foundation for a life of healing.
