Why is it beneficial to be away from home for treatment?

Although it can be a difficult step to take, leaving behind the environment in which you used substances will help you in your recovery. Residential treatment provides a safe environment away from the stresses and triggers of daily life, and also helps you break away from the connections that allowed your substance use to continue. In treatment, you learn to deal with your issues in a safe space, and then transition back to your daily life with the skills you need to maintain your recovery.
