How Private Accommodations Can Improve Recovery for Professionals

Home » Blog » How Private Accommodations Can Improve Recovery for Professionals

As a working professional, you are most likely accustomed to having your own space at work and home. You probably prefer the ability to control your environment to suit your specific needs. At a treatment center, you may also desire private accommodations to allow you that same sense of control. 

Having your private room while undergoing treatment provides you with flexibility. In a private room, you can make adjustments to your environment that improve your treatment experience and can lead to a better outcome. You want to be comfortable while working through issues that arise during treatment. Having plenty of space improves your experience during treatment, and ultimately this can enhance your long-term recovery success. 

Private Accommodations

During residential addiction treatment, you would stay at a facility for extended periods. Depending on the treatment facility, different accommodations are available. One such option is private accommodations. This is where you have your own room and can make yourself comfortable without worrying about roommates. 

Private accommodations, however, are still different than living at home. While you have your own space and are not bunking with another person, you are still under the care of a treatment center. Everyone is different, and some people will need more structure and support in their living space, while others may thrive with more autonomy. 

Whether you prefer more social support or if you can flourish in relative independence, private accommodations can meet your needs. You can communicate your needs to the center’s mental health care professionals while they collaborate with you to create a personalized treatment plan. 

Benefits of Private Accommodations

As a working professional, it’s easy to see why having private accommodation can be a good fit. This private space allows your treatment to be specific to your needs, which includes your preferred schedule, comfort requirements, and desired level of autonomy. 

Schedule Flexibility

Addiction treatment for each person is unique. For working professionals, treatment may include even more specific needs. Staying in private accommodation allows for these needs to be met in a way that is well suited for each client and their treatment success. 

Working professionals are commonly accustomed to a specific schedule. However, this varies for each client. Some may need to adjust their schedule to improve sleep or overall health. Regardless of the situation, rooming with other people may not allow for this. 

While many who enter treatment may be in between jobs, working professionals are commonly still employed or running a company while in treatment. Some clients may be unable to stop working during this time. Having private accommodations allows for the possibility of doing a certain amount of work while in treatment.

However, each case will be different. Working while in treatment is not always conducive to positive treatment outcomes and will need to be discussed with the facility and mental health care professionals involved. 

Getting Comfortable

Staying in a treatment center away from your home and routine can be uncomfortable. This is on top of the discomfort of addiction treatment, which is challenging in itself. Having private accommodations is one way to increase comfort while going through treatment. 

Comfort in your environment is about more than simply feeling good. Researchers have found that when people feel safe and comfortable they are more open to change and learning new things. This is very important in treatment as sustainable recovery requires many changes in one’s life. 

During treatment, you will be asked to assess multiple aspects of your life. This includes your self-care habits, stress levels, and use of substances. For you to maintain your sobriety, you will need to discover which changes you need to make. While these will differ for each person, you can be sure that you’ll need to make changes in your life. Staying in a comfortable environment during treatment improves your chances of making these changes effectively. 

Being Treated Like an Adult

Part of addiction treatment is learning how to take responsibility for your life. When you are treated like an adult, it is easier to assume responsibility. Having private accommodations helps you feel like an adult while you are living in a treatment facility. 

An important point to address, however, is the autonomy of adults with addiction. Adults struggling with addiction often have compromised self-control. However, the surgeon general of the United States says that this differs from a lack of autonomy. Individuals struggling with addiction can take responsibility for their actions and exercise personal autonomy. 

Increased Accountability 

A sense of accountability is very important in addiction treatment. Having accountability helps you acknowledge that while addiction does impact self-control, there are changes you can make. By taking responsibility, you can mend relationships and learn how to make the changes you need to stay sober. 

When you are a working professional, staying in private accommodations can facilitate the feeling of autonomy. While you are still in the structure of the treatment facility, you have a certain amount of separation. When you have your own room, you can more easily make helpful adjustments. This will facilitate your feeling like you can make the necessary changes both during treatment and beyond. 

The environment we inhabit makes a difference in how we feel, which is why our environment is vital in addiction treatment. At Pacific Sands Recovery Center we understand the need for private accommodations to increase comfort, provide flexibility, and improve the autonomy of our clients.
