Inpatient rehab for opiate addiction is the highest level of care available for addiction treatment. It starts with medically monitored detox and continues with a full range of integrated mental health services. At intake, a clinical staff conducts a complete history that includes medical and mental health, drug use, and other personal factors that help create an individualized inpatient treatment program for you or your loved one.
At Pennsylvania Adult & Teen Challenge (PAATC), every step on your recovery journey, from patient intake, through residential rehab, to professional aftercare programs, is guided by our caring, professional team.

Your Inpatient Rehab Program Wellness Team
The disease of addiction encompasses the whole person, including the mind, body, and spirit. Thus, the team that cares for people in recovery must treat the entire person in a multidisciplinary, coordinated approach. In a residential rehab program, your team may include:
- MDs and NPs (physicians, including psychiatrists and nurse practitioners)
- Psychologists and social workers
- Addiction counselors
- Family and marriage therapists
- Fitness experts
- Case managers
- Continuing care coordinators
The group of licensed professionals that collaborates on providing your care will be available to you round the clock in a residential program.
How Does a Residential Rehab Program Work?
The first step is detox. A medical team will monitor your withdrawal from opiates and manage your symptoms with medication. Therapists will be on hand to help you cope with the rollercoaster of emotions that can arise and feel overwhelming. Inpatient detox is the safest and most effective way to withdraw from opiates.
Once detox is over, the transition to the residential program is seamless. You will settle in, meet peers and practitioners, and begin participating in the activities and faith- and evidence-based services that will make up a large part of your stay.
Components of your residential rehab for opiate addiction may include:
- Mental health therapy (including cognitive-behavioral therapy or dialectical behavior therapy)
- Group therapy
- Dual-diagnosis treatment if you have a co-occurring disorder
- Fitness activities
- Health and wellness assessments and counseling
- Mindfulness and meditation
- Faith-centered group support
Your inpatient opiate addiction treatment works to stabilize your health to prepare you, body, mind, and spirit for an ongoing lifetime of recovery. You will follow the schedule the treatment team provides for you, as they’ve designed this individually tailored plan to meet your specific needs.
Do I Need an Inpatient Treatment Program?
How do you know if residential rehab is for you? Once you adjust for outside factors such as school, work, and family commitments, how do you know what is best? We recommend inpatient opiate addiction treatment for people who have:
- Relapsed in the past
- Tried outpatient rehab without success
- Co-occurring medical or mental health challenges
Another consideration is your home situation. If your situation at home will provide space to prioritize your recovery, a stable, healthy environment, and support for your process, outpatient treatment could be a good option. If not, or if you’re unsure, inpatient is probably the way to go. You will have built-in support, an environment devoid of outside stressors and triggers, and round-the-clock access to professional addiction recovery personnel.
