Understanding the dynamics of addiction is helpful when choosing between inpatient drug rehab or outpatient services. For instance, in most cases, addiction robs an individual of the regular, daily routine that would typically lead to a healthy, productive lifestyle. If this is the case, inpatient drug addiction treatment can be particularly beneficial, as it helps individuals establish daily routines with accountability mechanisms for sticking with schedules and following through. In addition, long-term drug use usually steals the ability to create and maintain healthy relationships; inpatient drug rehab provides abundant opportunities for individuals to learn and practice complex and challenging social skills in a controlled environment. Addiction may also lead individuals into home situations that aren’t safe, uplifting, or that are full of drama; inpatient drug rehab affords a stable environment for learning new skills, attitudes and behaviors that will result in long-term recovery. Assessing an individual’s specific situation and understanding the impact addiction has on individuals will help determine whether inpatient or outpatient drug rehab is most appropriate.
What Happens In An Inpatient Drug Treatment Program?
When individuals decide to enter an inpatient drug treatment program, they first undergo a thorough assessment to help establish a plan of action known as a “treatment plan.” Those who need to detox from drugs often require the round-the-clock care of an inpatient situation, in order to assure comfort and safety during withdrawal. After detox, the treatment program becomes the focus of daily life, where clients begin to learn about the disease of addiction in a structured, supportive inpatient environment. With stressful circumstances and negatively influencing factors removed, clients can start work on building or re-building life skills, developing new habits and cultivating new attitudes.
Some are reluctant about starting a residential drug treatment program because of the amount of commitment required, as well as the intensity of daily treatment. However, staff members working in an inpatient environment are geared to provide plenty of emotional support for the work that needs to be accomplished, and most rehab centers encourage family participation in a client’s recovery, as well. In addition, the therapeutic community that exists within a residential program provides encouragement from others facing the challenges of recovery.
