EP. 012:

How Do I Know If Residential Treatment Is Right For Me?

With Amanda Morrow and Shannon Yates

Today, we invite Clinical Supervisor Amanda Morrow and Admissions Director Shannon Yates to help us explore how to determine if residential care is the right next step in your recovery journey. They outline how the Milestones and Admissions teams collaborate to help people assess their unique needs and goals and make the right choice for their season and situation.

“It often feels like the work done in residential is work that can’t be done in outpatient therapy. There’s something truly magical about stepping out of your busy life to give yourself the time and space to do the work.”

– Christopher O’Reilly
