How Do I Know If Residential Treatment Is Right For Me?
With Amanda Morrow and Shannon Yates
Today we invite Clinical Supervisor Amanda Morrow and Admissions Director, Shannon Yates to help us explore how to determine if residential care is the right next step in your recovery journey. They outline how the Milestones and Admissions teams collaborate to help people assess their unique needs and goals and make the right choice for their season and situation.
"It often feels like the work done in residential is work that can't be done in outpatient therapy. There's something truly magical about stepping out of your busy life to give yourself the time and space to do the work."
- Christopher O'Reilly
No one escapes adversity. Yet some of us have had to endure more than our fair share of pain, hardship, and struggle. Sometimes the pain of our past builds up, interfering with the demands of our present, leaving us stuck, not knowing how to move forward.
