What Is Inpatient Addiction Treatment?
When you are in residence at an addiction treatment center, you receive care from a team of therapeutic professionals for the duration of your stay. There are short-term and long-term inpatient options available for every client. Our team will also make decisions about which treatments might be best for your unique needs and history.
Factors that our team will consider include:
- Whether you have been in rehab before and relapsed
- If you have a co-occurring physical or mental health disorder
- If you have the flexibility to be away from work and home for a set period
- Whether your home environment is free of substance use triggers
Inpatient care is not ideal for all, but it is a good idea for many. It offers a secure sanctuary away from the things that could remind you of your life of drug or alcohol abuse. Consider the many benefits of an inpatient rehab program.
Inpatient Rehab Program Benefits
If you are starting your recovery journey, that is an inherent good. You deserve all the support and respect in the world. One empowering, effective way to launch your sober life is in an inpatient rehab center.
Benefits of residential treatment include the following:
Detox Under Medical Supervision
Detox is the first step in recovery. You cannot undergo addiction treatment when your body is still suffering from the toxins of drugs or alcohol. Under medical care, your detox will be much less challenging and painful than it would be if you tackled it alone.
Medication and therapeutic support join forces to reduce pain and side effects and help you weather the process. Your recovery outcomes are likely to be better with a medically managed detox. You can then transition into the rest of residential treatment is seamless.
A Safe Environment
In a residential treatment center, you have a trigger-free space to achieve sobriety. The most vulnerable time in your recovery is at the beginning. People who white-knuckle detox and early sobriety are at much greater risk of relapsing early on, overdosing, or giving up on sobriety altogether. In an inpatient program, there will be fewer temptations, fewer people from your old life to trigger you, and an entirely new space untainted by memories of drug or alcohol abuse.
Our community is a pillar of a successful rehab. Living on the premises during your addiction treatment, along with everyone else in your program, means you have 24/7 access to peer support. Whether you are in group therapy, participating in a 12-step or other support meeting, or simply relaxing over a meal, you and your peers will benefit. Shared accountability, non-judgmental listening, common experiences, and goals are all part of being part of a community while you are in residence.
A structure can be a comfort to the newly sober. Your goal, and that of your care team, is your sobriety, self-care, and healing. In your inpatient rehab center, your time will be carefully managed from the start. We create an individualized treatment plan, which is formulated according to your needs. For instance, your day might involve things such as:
- Group therapy sessions
- Faith-based treatments
- 12 -step meetings
- Individual therapy
Your only daily responsibility is to get to show up at your appointments and be on time for healthy meals prepared for you.
There are few, if any, secrets in residential rehab. Because you and your peers share the same goals and aspirations, and probably similar fears, anxieties, and vulnerabilities, there is nothing to gain by cutting corners or hiding from others. You will hold your peers accountable, and they can do the same for you as you walk the path of recovery. You can also expect a helping hand if you stumble and the opportunity to celebrate milestones together.
