Residential: Short-Term

Short-Term Residential

Short-term residential care is for those whose recovery is complicated by continuing physical and/or emotional issues that need stabilization. Often times a patient’s potential to relapse into harmful use of substances despite their high level of motivation is heightened due to the lack of a strong support system, inadequate living arrangements, broken relationships, or a combination of external stressors that serve to complicate recovery.

Patients may be directly admitted to or transferred to the short-term residential program from any level of care in our continuum. The services are provided in the same facility as our residential detoxification program and the same nursing, physician and counseling staff facilitate care. This allows for continuity of care for those patients who no longer need detoxification services, but could greatly benefit from a drug rehab program through a continued stay (5 to 10 days) in a supportive residential setting.


In addition to nutritious meals and comfortable accommodations, the patient will receive the following services:

  • Intake assessment and evaluation
  • Physical evaluation by a physician or nurse practitioner
  • 24 hour monitoring by our nursing staff
  • Individualized plans of care
  • Individual and group therapy
  • Family sessions as indicated by the plan of care
  • Educational groups
  • Self-help support groups
  • Continuing care planning

Pine Rest also offers long-term residential services.
