Sometimes, the recovery process cannot commence until one leaves the environment that gave rise to his or her addiction. Inpatient programs help addicts dedicate themselves to comprehensive treatment in nurturing, distraction-free environments. Often, complete immersion in residential treatment produces deeper healing and better results.
What is inpatient rehabilitation?
Residential or inpatient addiction treatment typically involves medical detoxification, individual counseling, group counseling sessions and family counseling services. Programs may also offer spiritual counseling, exercise and nutrition advice and other wellness-promoting activities.
The most successful inpatient rehab programs approach addiction holistically, meaning they address a patient’s physical addiction as well as the social, spiritual, physical and emotional factors that contribute to it.
