Inpatient Addiction Treatment
Getting sober on your own is not only dangerous during the initial detox, it is also more likely to result in a relapse later on.
There are several options for inpatient addiction treatment. Rehabs differ by location, therapies offered, staff experience, amenities and more. It’s important to find the one that best fits your specific needs.
What is an Inpatient Rehab Program?
Inpatient rehab is a residential treatment center where patients reside for various lengths depending on their program. The average stay is 30 days, but most addiction treatment facilities offer longer programs (60 days, 90 days or even longer).
The length of treatment depends on several factors, including the severity of the addiction, the existence of any co-occurring mental health conditions, and whether the person has been through rehab before.
Most inpatient centers offer family programs, where members of the patient’s family participate in family counseling and activities. This provides the opportunity to mend trust and identify dysfunctional relationships or dynamics that could trigger a relapse. Families can help encourage and support their loved one by being actively involved in their recovery.
Each inpatient residential facility provides its own unique accommodations. Some are basic, with shared rooms, cafeteria-style meals and recreational activities like pool and ping-pong. Others may offer private luxury suites with gourmet meals and a host of amenities, like a pool, spa and gym.
How to Choose an Inpatient Treatment Center
Because every person who needs addiction treatment is different, there are also a variety of differences among treatment programs. It is important to ask the right questions to find the treatment program that is right for you.
