What Is Inpatient Rehab?

Inpatient rehab involves a patient living at a treatment facility while they receive various treatment services and take part in treatment programs. Most inpatient rehabs provide medical, clinical, and spiritual treatment in order to heal the mind and body for lasting recovery.

Inpatient rehabilitation services vary depending on the facility, but most centers offer care that ranges between 30 and 90 days, depending on the needs of the individual. BetterAddictionCare offers a nationwide recovery network of inpatient rehab centers that can assist with addiction recovery.

Why Is Inpatient Rehab Necessary?

What may begin as recreational substance use can turn to a dangerous drug addiction. Substance use and abuse encompasses not only illegal illicit drugs, but prescription medication and alcohol, too. For this reason, inpatient rehabs in our network are available to address a wide and growing number of commonly abused substances.

New recovery programs are constantly being developed in order to address the latest abuse trends and problem substances, including heroin, cocaine, methamphetamines, and marijuana.

How Does Inpatient Rehab Work?

Each substance has its own unique side effects and, upon admission into inpatient rehab facilities, some may require time spent undergoing medically-assisted detox in order to wean the body from a physical dependency

 The available detox programs are designed to keep patients safe and comfortable, and includes the administration of medication that helps the patient better tolerate the effects of the abuse substance leaving the body. After the initial critical phase of detox, patients may move on to the customized addiction counseling phase to address behavioral symptoms.

Each patient enrolled in an addiction recovery program is different. Whether an addict is dealing with physical or psychological dependence, professionals at inpatient drug rehab centers are experts at helping patients resolve addiction issues.

Highly trained therapists provide the individualized treatment patients require in order to recover most successfully. During inpatient rehab, addicts explore the reasons behind their addictions and potential triggers that lead to drug or alcohol abuse.

Once these triggers are identified, therapists teach patients new, healthier ways of coping once they return to their life after rehab. Patients can use these learned skills to stay sober and maintain a healthier, substance-free lifestyle.
