Drug and alcohol addiction is devastating for both the substance abuser and their loved ones. Addiction hijacks the brain and turns you into someone unrecognizable to yourself and those around you. With the right treatment, dedication, and support, addiction recovery is possible. Inpatient and outpatient treatment options are available, but often residential rehab is the best place to start.
What Is Inpatient Rehab?
Inpatient rehab programs provide the highest level of care for addiction treatment other than medical hospitalization. People with addictions typically enter treatment at the inpatient level and transition to lower levels of care as they gain more confidence and time in sobriety. Medical detox is sometimes needed prior to addiction treatment. The progression through drug and alcohol rehab usually includes:
- Drug and alcohol detox
- Residential treatment
- Partial hospitalization program (PHP)
- Intensive outpatient program (IOP)
- Outpatient treatment
- Sober-living residence
A residential treatment center provides space and distance from triggers while you’re recovering from drug or alcohol addiction. You live at an inpatient drug rehab, attending addiction treatment during the day and sleeping in onsite residences at night. Some inpatient treatment centers offer private rooms, but the majority provide semi-private rooms that you share with a roommate.
By living at the facility, you have more access to caregivers, doctors, and therapists. You also have the opportunity to grow closer to peers in recovery and further process issues and teachings from the day. With 24-hour monitoring and support, you’re able to keep addiction recovery as your focus. Because an inpatient treatment center is such a structured, supportive environment, many people find it is most conducive to sobriety.
Inpatient rehab for drug and alcohol addiction is often a transformative experience for people. They gain the tools they need for long-term recovery and find themselves in a better position to stay sober. Intensive time with treatment professionals and peers in recovery creates the groundwork for a caring support system.
What Therapies Are Offered in Residential Rehab?
Most inpatient rehab programs offer a variety of approaches to help you address addiction and co-occurring disorders. Because you’re spending more time in treatment, there are more opportunities to experience a range of therapies. This encourages overall healing and helps you determine which approaches best support your long-term recovery. Therapies offered in inpatient drug treatment vary by rehab center, but should include approaches like:
- Individual counseling sessions
- Group therapy
- Family therapy
- Mental health treatment for co-occurring disorders
- Evidence-based treatments like cognitive behavioral therapy
- Trauma therapies like EMDR
- Holistic approaches like yoga, mindfulness, art therapy, and music therapy
- Medication-assisted therapy (MAT)
- Introduction to support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and SMART Recovery
Is Residential Treatment Right for You?
Substance abuse treatment is on a continuum. Some people require the immersion into treatment, structure, and support that a residential program offers where others may do well with an intensive outpatient program. You should strongly consider an inpatient rehab program if:
- This is your first time receiving treatment for alcohol and drug addiction.
- You have an addiction with high relapse rates like alcohol addiction, meth addiction, prescription drug addiction, or opioid addiction.
- You are abusing more than one substance.
- You have a dual diagnosis (i.e., you also struggle with a mental illness like depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder).
- Your living environment or daily life presents roadblocks to recovery.
Recovering from drug and alcohol addiction is rewarding, but hard work. Taking time and space away from everyday life to focus on yourself is what many people need to build a strong foundation in sobriety. This prepares you to face sobriety challenges armed with skills that prevent relapse.
What Happens After Inpatient Treatment?
Many people who leave a residential treatment facility move into a partial hospitalization program or intensive outpatient program. These are both outpatient rehab options that allow you to live at home or a sober-living residence while keeping a strong foothold in drug and alcohol addiction treatment. A partial hospitalization program typically meets around six hours a day. An intensive outpatient program may meet three 9-15 hours a week spread over three to five days.
After a PHP or intensive outpatient program, people usually move into outpatient treatment that meets just one to three hours a week. This enables you to reacclimate fully to work, school, or family life while having regular check ins and support in early sobriety. Following outpatient treatment, most people in recovery continue taking part in practices that help maintain sobriety like:
- Individual therapy
- Family or couples therapy
- 12-step groups or other support groups
- Psychiatry for co-occurring mental health conditions
- Regular fitness, good nutrition, hobbies, and other aspects that support long-term recovery
