While outpatient drug rehab is intended for those who are dealing with a mild addiction, inpatient drug rehab is meant to help those who are struggling with more severe substance abuse.

Inpatient substance abuse treatment centers require patients to stay in the residential treatment center as they undergo anywhere from a 28-day to 6-month program.

At the same time, the patient receives 24-hour medical and emotional support. In terms of outcomes, inpatient treatment programs offers a higher success rate than its intensive outpatient or outpatient alternative.

Inpatient Drug Rehab: What to expect

Family Contact and Support

Most residential treatment programs recognize the importance of family involvement in the patient's recovery.

Patients may receive emotional support and encouragement while in their rehab center. Your chosen addiction treatment center may even offer family therapy services for your family, as well.

However, it’s important to note that the frequency and the means of communication between the residents and their families are based on the facility’s policy and each persons specific family dynamic and situation.

Meetings with Mental Health Experts

Inpatient addiction treatment makes it easier for the residents to become sober because they’re shielded from the distractions of daily life.

Each day spent in an inpatient rehab facility is carefully planned and scheduled.

Mental health experts like psychologists, psychiatrists, and counselors set up meetings with their patients individually and in small groups.

These daily meetings with mental health professionals allows each patient in substance abuse treatment programs to receive continuous help and guidance not only navigating their recovery from addictions but their mental health as well.

Medically-Assisted Detox

The initial step of inpatient rehab involves a medically-assisted detox process in which addiction specialists, as well as physicians and nurses, monitor the patient’s status and vital signs as the drugs are exiting the individual’s system.

During this phase, it’s common for residents to experience drug cravings. However, with constant medical care, the patient’s withdrawal symptoms will be managed.
