Hospitalization for residential addiction treatment

Hospitalization for residential addiction treatment

The residential treatment program at New Ulm Medical Center is a program for patients with addiction problems for whom outpatient and short-term hospitalization treatment programs do not work.

If you have a substance use problem that requires medical intervention, you may need to be hospitalized. For some, this hospitalization may need to be longer than an inpatient program. In this case, you may need a residential program. A residential hospital treatment program is for individuals with addiction problems who require more in-depth treatment. Residential treatment provides 24-hour care in a residential setting. Length of treatment varies by individual, but typically lasts about 30 days.

To qualify for a program, a substance use disorder comprehensive assessment (formerly known as Rule 25) is necessary. Through this assessment, our referral specialist can help select the treatment option that best suits your needs.

What to expect from your visit

Your provider will work with you and your family to create an individualized treatment plan that may include:

  • medication-assisted treatment
  • a program that allows for off-unit privileges while remaining on the hospital campus
  • services that support your mental health
  • an array of group therapy options addressing topics such as mental health, psychotherapy, relapse prevention with recovery planning, individual sessions, anger work, grief, life coping skills, family education and therapeutic recreation/leisure skills
  • daily rounding by a primary counselor and nursing staff
  • recreational therapy, smoking cessation, community speakers, spirituality groups and medical education and nursing groups
  • services to address co-occurring mental health issues
