Residential (Inpatient) Substance Abuse Treatment
Individuals that are suffering from frequent or chronic drug addiction or alcoholism find Residential Treatment or also referred to as Inpatient Treatment very effective. Inpatient treatment programs are usually 28 to 30 days for a minimal stay with a more intense form of treatment compared to outpatient treatment. There are long term and short term residential inpatient treatment programs throughout every state depending on the individual's addiction needs. Because every patient is different the length of stay depends on the individual.
Some people in need of inpatient treatment are reluctant at first but soon realize the importance of a safe and supportive setting when it comes to recovering from their addiction. The patients are able to receive a much more individualized form of treatment in an inpatient setting and it helps to be around other recovering addicts going through the same things. Residential Treatment Programs are available for adults and also adolescents and teens. There is also gender specific inpatient treatment programs designed for either men or women. In a long term Residential Treatment setting, the patient remains at the residence usually for 6 to 12 months depending or the individual's needs and progress.
Inpatient Treatment programs are designed for individuals that have a need for a more intense form of treatment that offers around the clock care if needed. Patients that have a long history of drug or alcohol abuse and addiction do much better when they're not in their normal everyday surroundings. Family support is also a big part of most inpatient treatment programs and makes a positive difference when it comes to long term recovery and success.
Many residential treatment programs use a Holistic approach for treating substance abuse and focus on treating and healing the mind, body and spirit during recovery. 12 step based treatment and therapies are utilized during the recovery process. Holistic treatment emphasizes healing the individual physically, nutritionally, emotionally, socially, and spiritually bringing health and balance to the whole person.
There are different types of residential treatment programs, Therapeutic Communities (TCs) are very structured programs also and patients remain in treatment for 6 months to a year depending on their circumstances. These programs are designed to help change a patient's attitude, their perceptions, and behaviors when it comes to substance use.
Now we even have Therapeutic Communities that are designed for women who are pregnant or that already have children and are in need of treatment.
There is a wide range of treatment therapies used in Inpatient substance abuse settings. Some of the programs utilized in residential treatment include detoxification, evaluations, behavioral therapies like CBT, counseling, individual and group therapy, coping skills, life skills, relapse prevention, 12 step based therapy, and family therapy. Many residential treatment centers also include after care programs.
