Residential Care for Addiction Recovery

A home-like setting that supports recovery

McLean offers expert residential care for those struggling with issues related to substance use, with treatment taking place in an environment that feels like a home, not a hospital.

“Residential treatment helps patients who are struggling and can benefit from around-the-clock support from experts in behavioral health,” explained Catherine Milliken, LCSW, LADC, CCS, program director at McLean’s Borden Cottage location. “This approach is also incredibly helpful for those who have relapsed and are trying to get back into recovery.”

The residential approach helps staff members address both psychiatric and medical issues. “When a person comes to us, we look at all realms of their life,” Milliken said. “We want to care for the whole person.” This type of comprehensive care is ideal for helping patients identify and treat co-existing conditions such as depression, anxiety, trauma disorders, or personality disorders.
