What is Inpatient Addiction Treatment?
Inpatient substance use disorder treatment programs (also called Inpatient drug rehab and inpatient alcohol rehab) are intensive, rehabilitation-focused, and residential. The treatment approaches taken and level of care offered in residential rehab programs can vary, but almost all of them include different types of therapy, medical care, and other support services. Designed to help people with serious and complex addictions through the recovery process, residential treatment programs require patients to stay full-time at a particular rehabilitation and treatment facility, sometimes for as long as six months. During that time, patients address their substance use disorder and any co-occurring behavioral health challenges or dual diagnoses with emotional, social, psychological, and medical support from trained addiction staff.
The Benefits of Inpatient Treatment
Both inpatient and outpatient treatment programs offer different benefits and serve different types of patients with different types of needs. Alcohol inpatient and inpatient drug treatment programs generally offer the following benefits:
- Residential treatment programs provide safety and aim to keep patients as comfortable as possible during detox and withdrawal.
- Inpatient alcohol treatment drug rehab centers have a higher success rate than outpatient programs.
- Inpatient rehabilitation programs provide 24-hour support.
- Inpatient addiction treatment programs operate outside of the stressors of daily life and work, so patients can really focus.
- The community bonds formed between patients in alcohol inpatient and inpatient drug treatment programs can also be very beneficial in recovery.
- Inpatient treatment facilities also often provide help and resources, such as aftercare or a sober living house, to reduce stress when it’s time to transition back into “normal” life.
How long is a treatment stay? Do we offer any shorter lengths of stay?
Treatment stays may last up to six months but can also be shorter, depending on the needs of the patient.
Types of Addiction Best Treated With Inpatient Care
Inpatient drug rehabilitation facilities serve best those patients who are struggling to manage symptoms and cravings in outpatient care, have made efforts at rehabilitation before and been unsuccessful, or who have complex addictions. Inpatient drug and alcohol rehab may also be the best choice for patients who need Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for opioid addiction. While some outpatient programs include medication-assisted therapy, for many patients in need of Medication-Assisted Treatment — especially if they’re undergoing medical detox for alcohol or benzodiazepines — a residential program is ideal.
