When confronted with the residential question, families naturally struggle with feelings of guilt or abandonment, as well as doubts about being away from a loved one. Meanwhile, prospective Spring Lake Ranch residents may fear the stigma of inpatient or long-term mental health treatment in a residential facility.
But residential treatment can be wonderful for families who have fought a difficult battle with mental illness and addiction. Families can rest easy knowing that their loved one is in a safe and caring environment, getting the treatment they need. And the resident, far from being marginalized as a patient or case, benefits from the change of pace, time to focus on wellness goals, inclusion in a community of professional staff and empathetic peers, and round-the-clock response to keep situations and crises managed.
