Inpatient treatment is the ideal option for those looking to get away from their current temptations and focus 100% on sobriety with no distractions.
Inpatient drug rehab offers 24-hour-a-day care that allows you to focus solely on recovering from your addiction and your new-found sobriety. Inpatient treatment often includes at least:
- Supervised detox
- Administration of medication, if appropriate and required
- Group and individual therapy
- Family Therapy
Programs do vary and may include a number of other features ranging from family therapy and life skills training to yoga, exercise, meditation, art/music therapy and nature/beach walks.
Types of Inpatient Rehab
The most common types of inpatient recovery programs include:
- Residential: These are live-in programs where you stay for the duration of treatment. You attend individual and group therapy sessions, receive medical care and engage in other activities with residents.
- Luxury: Luxury programs offer many of the same services as residential. But they include other amenities and treatments such as massage therapy, swimming, horseback riding, fine dining and private accommodations. They may also be located in desirable settings such as beaches or mountains.
Benefits of Inpatient Treatment
Inpatient treatment programs often require you to live at the facility full-time for a fixed period of time – typically between 30 days and 90 days. While some may see staying in an inpatient program for an extended amount of time as a drawback, in terms of recovery, it can be a huge benefit. Inpatient treatment:
- Allows you to get away from your normal environment, which is likely rife with the temptation to use, and focus on your sobriety without distraction
- Puts you in a healthy environment with addiction treatment professionals and others who are focusing on recovery
- Provides ongoing skills training and education.
