Determining whether to enter an inpatient alcohol treatment program or engage in outpatient alcohol treatment requires an understanding of an individual’s specific needs and situation. If a person has been living in the chaos of alcoholism, focused exclusively on how and where to obtain and drink alcohol, daily routine has likely been cast aside and the drama of life has taken over. In this case, long-term alcohol rehab in a residential facility could be the best option, as it helps the addicted individual establish regular routines that bring him or her back into the mainstream of life. Schedules are set and maintained during residential treatment, and clients are held accountable for sticking with their routines and following through.
Inpatient alcohol rehab also provides a safe haven for recovery, away from family and friends who drink or use illegal drugs, away from the turbulent home life that often results from an alcoholic lifestyle. Finding peace, warmth, and congeniality in an inpatient setting can be a good place to start recovery. In addition, inpatient alcohol rehab affords the opportunity to build a new support network of people who are on the same road to recovery. Both within and outside a residential program, healthy relationships are built and can result in long-lasting friendships that build confidence and hope.
Feeling Welcome in an Inpatient Alcohol Rehab Program
First on the agenda when an individual arrives at an inpatient alcohol rehab program is a comprehensive evaluation covering all aspects of his or her health, including mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health. The assessment results in an action plan that determines the course of treatment throughout a client’s stay. If the plan calls for detoxification from alcohol, 24-hour care in an inpatient setting may be called for, in order to assure comfort and safety during withdrawal. After detox, clients begin daily life by learning about the disease of addiction and participating in individual and group psychotherapy.
Inpatient staff are trained to deal with the anxiety that may come from reluctance to enter an inpatient program. Anticipating the start of a new life in a brand new environment with strangers can be frightening, but the emotional support and guidance provided by an empathetic staff helps alleviate apprehension. Feeling welcome and hopeful about the future often replaces feelings of doubt.
Our Inpatient Alcohol Treatment Facility Is Considered Top-Notch
In addition to inpatient drug addiction treatment, Anaheim Lighthouse offers a robust inpatient alcohol treatment program with multiple treatment options. Collaborating with therapists and addiction counselors, clients create treatment plans to address specific needs on a holistic basis, encompassing the spiritual, emotional, physical and psychological sides of each individual. In this way, the whole person is treated, not just the person’s physical addiction. Individual and group psychotherapy, alcohol and drug education, classes on life skills and coping mechanisms, introduction to 12-step programs, an exercise and nutrition regimen – all contribute to the opportunity for a vigorous drug rehab experience and tools for long-term maintenance. When appropriate, we also involve the client’s family in recovery through counseling and family events.
