What Is Residential Rehab?

Residential rehab, sometimes called inpatient treatment, is an intensive, highly structured level of care. Clients live onsite at the facility to get away from drugs or alcohol and receive treatment throughout the day from licensed professionals. Residential rehab lets you focus entirely on your recovery so you get the tools you need to stay sober.

I got a lot more than I bargained for. I came for a mental vacation, to get my head clear. To my consternation I got treatment, real life valuable treatment. This place equipped me for the next phase of my sober life. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here. There are things that can use improvement but nothing in life is perfect. I got waaay more than I gave. This was definitely a win for me. Love this place and I want to say a very public thank you to the staff and especially my two therapists: Rachel and Jensi. You two were ABSOLUTELY amazing and what I needed

My time at RVA, will always be a time that I'll forever cherish. I was able to build lasting friendships and discover a part of myself I was afraid to face. Being a member of the transgender community life has been rough. RVA was kind enough to provide me with a room of my own. My Therapist Jasmine Jenkins was the best therapist I have ever had l, and I've had a few. Grace the recreational therapist always went above and beyond for of her patients.

I've been a patient here 2 times and can say the program is solid clinically. Rachel is an excellent therapist. All of the clinical staff and the BHTs are kind and see you as an individual. Special props to Rodney for being so patient and understanding. Ms. Tracey the BHT who is sweet and knows you by name and is the type of person who genuinely cares . These folks know about addiction and addicts. The rules may not be for everybody but if you are truly there to get well and learn how to live then I would highly recommend. If you're looking for a vacation from your kids or just a place to stay this may not be for you. There are expectations for the clients and one of those is acting like an adult who takes recovery seriously. The food may not be restaurant quality but you'll get full. The place is pleasing to the eye and comfortable for the most part. Any issues my roommate and I had and brought to the attention of staff i.e. hot water problems and hvac problems were addressed. In conclusion: if you are ready to get slightly uncomfortable and work hard to save your life RVA is for you.

Will I lose my kids if I go to rehab?

Treating addiction is the best way to create a better future for your children. While there are no guarantees of child custody, completing rehab and reducing the negative effects of addiction on your life make you more likely to keep your children in your life than continuing substance abuse.
