Has anyone gone through residential programs before?

I'm considering entering one, it'll be more intensive treatment with classes everyday. It was recommended by my therapist and she is referring me.

Does anyone have any insight into what it would be like?

No, it is not a state hospital. It's more like residential partial hospitalization. You get your own apartment and there are less restrictions on your comings and goings, unlike a hospital. You do live there though and attend daily groups and classes.

You'll be fine! I was in a residential program for 10 months but it was for kids, so I'm sure they're similar in some ways. The hardest thing for me was realizing that the majority of the staff are there to help you. Don't give up on your program no matter how hard it may be. I'll be honest, it wasn't my favorite place in the world, but I was a lot happier when I had a positive attitude about it.
