The good news is, there are options when it comes to drug rehab. If you are struggling with heroin abuse or addiction, it’s time to get help. The kind of help you seek is up to you. One of the first decisions you will make is whether to do an inpatient treatment program. The benefits of residential addiction treatment programs include medically supervised detox and an integrated mental health plan that comprehensively outlines all the services you will receive while in residence. Supervision of detox and recovery by medical professionals is a very safe way to obtain successful, long-term sobriety.
Inpatient heroin treatment also provides momentum to the recovery process and readies clients to continue treatment on an outpatient basis once the residential program ends. People with heroin use disorder are in a more stable condition for ongoing recovery after an inpatient program than people who have only experienced outpatient treatment, or none at all. That does not mean that inpatient is the only way to go.
Pennsylvania Adult & Teen Challenge (PAATC) offers both options because we know that there are many factors to be considered.

Inpatient Treatment Process for Heroin Addiction
There are four stages to the process of inpatient heroin treatment.
During your intake, the staff will conduct numerous medical and psychological assessments and take a drug history. This evaluation allows them to create an individualized plan just for you.
The inpatient detox process is monitored closely by medical professionals as your body removes all remnants of heroin. The staff will provide you with relief from some of the more difficult symptoms of heroin detox and ensure that you stay safe from medical crises and as comfortable as possible.
The entire inpatient rehab program builds a foundation for your long-term treatment and sobriety. At PAATC, in addition to ensuring that you receive nutritious meals and are secure in a trigger-free environment in which you can heal, the inpatient addiction treatment program at our treatment center offers:
- Individual therapy with a licensed practitioner
- Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy
- Dialectical Behavior Therapy
- Group therapy
- Support groups, including 12-step offerings
- Faith-based rehab treatment
- Holistic wellness practices such as exercise, meditation, and yoga
We tailor the treatments each person receives to their needs, allowing them to overcome their unique challenges.
Treatment does not end when inpatient rehab ends. Part of your inpatient treatment program is to plan for long-term treatment and ongoing aftercare to support you in living a sober life.
The Emotional Safety of Inpatient Treatment
One of the factors that positively affect those who undergo inpatient heroin treatment is emotional healing, and that starts with a feeling of being held safe. Choosing inpatient treatment means you will begin your recovery within clear boundaries: no temptations, no distractions, and plenty of round-the-clock support. When you are in residence, there is a buffer between you and the world. You have the space you need, without personal challenges, work stress, family responsibilities that might cause anxiety as well as a loss of focus on your purpose: to begin a healthy recovery. The emotional safety of inpatient rehab provides peace of mind that greatly benefits overall treatment.
