WHAT IS INPATIENT TREATMENT?

Beating an addiction is difficult when you are constantly faced with temptations that make you want to use or drink again. For many people struggling with addiction, a total change in environment is necessary for treatment to be effective.

Entering an inpatient treatment program allows you to remove yourself from an environment of triggers, temptations, and stressful situations that can keep you from being able to focus fully on your recovery.

Inpatient treatment can take place at hospitals, residential treatment centers, and some specialized medical detox centers. Inpatient treatment provides 24/7 medical care and support and studies have shown that inpatient treatment is among the most effective treatment methods.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

The two most common forms of inpatient treatment are short-term treatment and residential treatment.

The difference between the two is that short-term inpatient treatment can apply to any inpatient treatment between five and 28 days long, whereas residential treatment is long-term, generally lasting at least 90 days and often upwards of a year.

Short-term treatment also tends to focus more on immediate treatment matters such as detox and other initial intensive treatment, while residential treatment is more community-minded due to its lengthier process, with a highly structured schedule of different activities, including individual counseling, group therapy, educational classes, and more.

Determining the right treatment program is essential to addiction recovery. Whether you opt for short-term inpatient treatment or residential treatment, Drug Treatment Center Finder will help you find the treatment center and program that’s best for you.

TREATMENT GUIDES

It’s not easy to find the right drug treatment center, especially when there are thousands of them available and minimal information on how to narrow the possibilities down to the best fit. Choosing the right rehab requires lots of information and answers to tricky questions many people have of the recovery process, such as the difference between inpatient and outpatient programs and how to pay for rehab.

HOW DO I KNOW IF SHORT-TERM INPATIENT TREATMENT IS RIGHT FOR ME?

While the length of time you will spend in a short-term inpatient drug treatment program will vary depending upon the medical facility or clinic that you choose to use, the approach to addiction treatment is the same no matter extent of your stay.

From the minute you arrive, you will attend therapy services and receive around-the-clock medical care and medication management as you undergo intensive treatment and preparation for your return to your regular life.

Short-term treatment might be the right choice for you if detoxification is a priority, or if your addiction is not as severe as that of someone who requires the lengthy removal from regular life that residential treatment provides.

If you’re looking for a stress-free environment where you won’t be distracted from your detox and recovery by the temptation of drugs or alcohol, even if it’s only for a short while, short-term inpatient treatment may be right for you.

HOW DO I KNOW IF LONG-TERM RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT IS RIGHT FOR ME?

Long-term inpatient treatment, otherwise known as residential treatment, requires a significant time and financial commitment and should not be taken lightly.

However, a residential treatment program can make all the difference in a successful recovery, giving an individual both the time and supportive environment they need to devote themselves to understanding their addictive behaviors and learning how to change them for good.

Long-term residential treatment may be right for you if you are:

  • Struggling with an especially severe addiction to drugs or alcohol
  • Suffering from mental illness or other health issues
  • Have experienced intense trauma
  • Have tried other forms of treatment but have been unable to achieve sobriety

Residential treatment will typically follow the “therapeutic community” treatment model, which uses the treatment program’s entire community, from residents to staff, and social setting as active elements of treatment along with the structured therapeutic and educational activities.

We want you to find the best program for you. When you call our addiction treatment hotline, we will listen to you and create a drug treatment plan that is unique to your current situation.
