Inpatient Drug Rehab
For many of us, “inpatient” brings up thoughts of locked wards and sterile hospitals. However, this is not the reality for many facilities. At Everlast Recovery Centers, our inpatient program takes place in a comfortable residential setting that feels more like home than a hospital.
What Is Inpatient Drug Rehab?
During inpatient treatment, our clients live in the facility where they receive clinical care which allows for more intensive support and monitoring throughout their treatment stay. Our clients benefit from the 24 hour staff availability as well as the community support of the other clients. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, inpatient treatment decreases relapse rates and gives people more tools to recover with success.
Inpatient treatment helps people with more severe addictions, mental health issues, or a high risk of relapse in their current living situation.
An inpatient stay with Everlast Recovery Centers typically lasts for 30 days, but we work with each patient to determine the best course of treatment for them. No two people with substance abuse disorders have the exact same clinical needs, so we customize each treatment plan for every client.
Is Inpatient Drug Rehab for Me?
Certain drugs, such as opiates or methamphetamines, have more stigma attached to them than others. Some people have had more legal or social problems because of their addiction. However, none of this determines whether a person needs inpatient drug rehab. Anyone who struggles with addiction and needs more intensive treatment can benefit from an inpatient stay. The skills you learn in inpatient treatment will help you to transform your life regardless of what brought you to admit into treatment.
At Everlast, we understand that leaving home and spending the time needed in treatment sounds intimidating. It may sound like more treatment than you need, and you may feel that you don’t fit the picture of the person who needs inpatient treatment. In truth, there is no one type of person who comes to inpatient drug rehab. Whether you are paying for treatment with your health insurance or self-pay, all clients will feel welcome at Everlast Recovery Centers.
To determine if inpatient drug rehab fits your needs, these four treatment options may be considered:
Medically Managed Inpatient Services
The most intensive level of treatment — medically managed inpatient services — involves 24-hour direct nursing care and daily doctor visits and usually takes place in a hospital setting.
People who need intensive psychiatric or medical care for underlying issues may need this level of care, especially early on in their recovery journey.
Most people will transfer down from medically managed inpatient services once their psychiatric or medical conditions have stabilized. At this point, it may be clinically appropriate to transfer to a residential facility like Everlast Recovery Centers, where they receive around the clock support and clinical care along with weekly doctor visits, but the individual does not require 24-hour medical supervision.
Clinically Managed Inpatient Services
There is a range of inpatient services available to people based on their needs. At Everlast Recovery Centers, we offer clinically managed inpatient services.
Our exceptional facility provides medical assistance during detox, monitors each person’s health, and provides clinical levels of treatment. However, other options are available for those who need more intensive programs and require more treatment for serious issues.
All inpatient services take place in our residential treatment facility. Certain programs have less intensive clinical treatment that may happen in more open environent facilities that provide more independence for their clients, while more intensive programs will require more consistent monitoring and offer less opportunities for clients independent living.
If Everlast determines that our program is too intensive or not intensive enough for the level of care an individual requires, we will refer them to an appropriate treatment provider. Someone who comes to us with mental health issues we cannot clinically treat, for example, may need to be sent to a higher level of care or a primary mental health program. A client displaying symptoms of schizophrenia or another serious psychiatric condition may need treatment at a facility that treats these types of disorders as a primary diagnosis. A client with major medical issues may require more intense medical monitoring during rehab to protect their health. Finding you the care you need is important to us because we care about your overall well-being and success on your recovery journey.
Partial hospitalization, despite the name, does not mean that the person stays in a hospital. Instead, they typically attend an all-day program of therapy and activities, then return home or to a sober living environment at the end of the day. Although Everlast Recovery Centers does not provide partial hospitalization services, we collaborate with a number of programs that we trust with your care.
Intensive outpatient programs (IOP) involve up to 20 hours of treatment per week. They often consist of group and individual sessions several times during the week. IOP may serve as a step-down from inpatient rehab or a partial hospitalization program as a means of maintaining clinical support. Although Everlast does not provide intensive outpatient treatment for our clients, we have a long list of local and national providers that will continue your care after residential treatment.
Outpatient therapy usually takes less than ten hours per week, and patients see their treatment professionals for sessions but do not live at the facility. However, if you need detox or more intensive treatment, this type of program will not cover your needs. Most people benefit from outpatient therapy after completing an inpatient stay.
What Happens in Inpatient Drug Rehab?
The time a person spends in inpatient care will focus on teaching the individual new life skills, learning the tools to live a new life in sobriety, as well as creating structure around preventing a potential relapse upon returning home. Typical treatment methods will include:
Each of these types of therapies teaches coping skills, behavioral changes, and improved ability to manage emotional stress. The world outside an inpatient facility will be challenging for a person in early recovery. Everlast makes it a priority to provide the coping skills and emotional self-regulation needed for long-term sobriety.
Everlast’s inpatient program also offers holistic treatment options, including:
After spending part or most of the day in individual or group therapy, patients have time to spend relaxing and socializing with other clients and our staff at Everlast. This one-on-one time can lead to essential lessons not learned in a clinical group or individual session with a therapist. At Everlast, we ensure you feel like family and are treated as such.
Attending Our Inpatient Drug Rehab
At Everlast, you may be admitted to our detox program prior to residential inpatient treatment depending on your circumstances to make sure we manage your withdrawal symptoms in a safe and comfortable environment. From there, the next step will be our inpatient residential program. During an inpatient stay with Everlast, you will practice and expand your knowledge on everything you started learning in detox to begin your new road to recovery.
At Everlast Recovery Centers, we want you to spend your time with us feeling supported and cared for while gaining the skills to begin your new life in recovery. We are committed to making your experience as easy as possible from the moment you call our admissions line until the day you discharge. At Everlast, you can be sure to receive the best treatment available anywhere.
