A Deeper Level of Care
As much as we love our families and cherish our careers and lifestyles, there are times in which we must remove ourselves from them when we develop a serious drug or alcohol problem. Recovery must come first because if it doesn’t, every other aspect of life will suffer, including our relationships, families, financial security and our physical and psychological health. Despite everything else a person may have going on in their lives, there comes a time in which addicts must do the necessary work to repair our lives so we can be there for ourselves and the people we care about.
What Is Inpatient Rehab?
Inpatient therapy is a long-term residential therapy option designed to immerse patients fully in their care. It involves patients staying at an inpatient facility where they will get some combination of detox and rehab over an extended period of time (usually 28-30 days or longer). Each inpatient rehab facility is different and has its own set of guidelines for residential patients. Some specialize in different specialized areas of care and some offer a broader scope of capabilities. Prospective patients should have their loved one or an experienced professional help them research the inpatient program that is right for them so they end up making an informed choice.
What Happens during Inpatient Rehab?
Inpatient rehab gives patients the opportunity to address the root causes of their addiction through a customized course of behavior modification and psychotherapy. The goal of the process is to help patients live a life free from substance abuse so they can successfully rebuild their lives and relationships. This is accomplished through a series of techniques, including group therapy and individualized counseling, to help patients gain heightened self-awareness and help them develop coping techniques that they can apply in high-pressure situations. Rehab provides the behavioral framework for lasting recovery and ongoing success.
Benefits of Inpatient Rehab
Inpatient addiction treatment provides a variety of clinical and value-added benefits that other treatment options just can’t provide, including:
- A private, discreet and distraction-free environment
- Round-the-clock supervision from qualified treatment experts
- Assistance with medication (if applicable)
- A close and supportive treatment community
- Referral to support groups and addiction-trained therapists
Many inpatient drug and alcohol treatment programs offer onsite detox so patients can go through each component of their treatment in one location. It’s not uncommon for clients in inpatient treatment to form lifelong relationships from which they can gain support and strength during the more difficult parts of their long-term recovery.
Do I Need Inpatient Rehab?
While it is an effective care option, not everyone actually needs inpatient treatment. The best candidates for inpatient treatment include:
- Users with an extended history of relapse
- Users whose lives have been severely impacted by addiction
- Users who have been abusing drugs or alcohol for years without seeking treatment
- Users who have found little success in outpatient care
There are also long-term care options for those who need an extended period of time (multiple months to a year) in treatment.
