Intensive Inpatient Treatment

Intensive Inpatient Treatment is also known as Residential Treatment.  Residential treatment is a form of rehab where the patient lives in a facility for a certain amount of time. With residential treatment,  a person has access to medical professionals and a variety of other amenities. 

Highly Structured Treatment for Mental Illness, Mood Disorders, and Substance Abuse

The inpatient program provides intensive, highly structured treatment for mental illness, mood disorders, and substance abuse issues in a safe, controlled environment. A personalized intensive inpatient treatment program is created for every patient. The length of stay in the inpatient treatment program will be determined based upon the treatment needs and goals identified between the care team and the patient.

Intensive Inpatient Treatment

Those individuals dealing with symptoms related to their condition or addiction get the best results with inpatient treatment. Recovery in a comfortable, welcoming facility offers a nurturing environment to focus exclusively on healing during your stay with us.

Depending on factors such as the type of substance being abused, the individual, and any co-occurring disorders, the length of treatment may vary. Patients can attend treatment for between 30 and 12 months. Inpatient rehab programs of 30 days are a good place to start for many people.

Inpatient Treatment

Receive 24 Hour Specialty Treatment

In the inpatient treatment program, patients admitted receiving 24-hour supervised treatment and expert, professional support for often co-occurring mental health conditions and substance abuse that often exist. It is a fact that addiction and mental illness are, more often than not, co-occurring. With that in mind, treatment for dual diagnosis is generally part of every inpatient treatment program.

The inpatient treatment program is meant for adults age 18 and over who struggle with depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD, personality and mood disorders, and many other illnesses. The primary addiction treatment services include alcohol abuse, illegal drug addiction, and prescription drug and opiate abuse.

Highly Structured Treatment

Create New Habits in an Inpatient Setting

By working directly with highly trained, compassionate care teams, including psychiatrists, specialty physicians, nurses, social workers, therapists, and other experienced professionals, you can best begin the road to a life of better wellness.

During an inpatient program, you will learn coping strategies to achieve recovery. Using a combination of traditional and alternative therapies, we can manage your condition or addiction with proper education and learning new coping activities and techniques. Patients will also be provided with medication management.

The benefit of Intensive Inpatient Treatment is that patients are removed from their everyday routines in an inpatient setting and can concentrate fully on getting better. This facilitates a more rapid, long-term recovery. While inpatient treatment may not be appropriate for everyone, it is a great way to develop coping skills and learn more about the disease or disorder you are suffering from in your recovery.

When patients arrive at the facility, they tend to have been living in a universally unhealthy manner. Nutritional staff ensures the patient eats detoxifying foods and also learns about healthy eating.

Because the patient is removed from daily life, their stressors and responsibilities outside of their recovery are gone. This allows them to truly focus on themselves and their needs, making it more likely that they will get to the root of their addiction.

About Intensive Rehab Treatment

To succeed at recovery, one needs to commit completely. Alcoholics and other drug addicts can recover completely from the obsession to use. A reliable recovery rate a year after treatment is extremely difficult to establish. In lieu of giving the reader an inaccurate impression, we chose to quote reliable studies showing that these actions greatly increase the chance for a happy, joyous and addiction-free life.

The benefits are clearly obvious, but patients doubtless wonder if they apply to success. There is no 100% success rate for addiction treatment facilities, and it is possible that some patients will relapse. According to some evidence, beginning treatment in an inpatient setting often yields the best results.

Inpatient rehabs combine these therapies with medical treatment for addiction recovery, which gets the highest success rates. However, statistics indicate that shorter stays result in poorer outcomes, so it is recommended to either extend the stay beyond the usual 30 days or to follow the inpatient stay with residential treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will I be a patient going through intensive inpatient treatment?

Though people with co-occuring mental illnesses traditionally spend longer periods of time in an inpatient program, the average inpatient stay can be anywhere in between one to four months. There are some patients that are able to successfully make positive strides towards sobriety and a new level of wellness in just a few short weeks. What is most important is wellness.

How will I be able to afford intensive inpatient rehab?

Rehab is best financed by your current health insurance plan. Your mental health benefits may be included in the HMO or PPO that you contract with through your employer. Individual policies, however, can be more complicated. Check with your insurer to see if you have coverage for inpatient treatment. A rehab clinic might not be included in your network, so you might also need to check the state laws about out-of-network care when you require vital services.

What does the average day during inpatient treatment look like?

Schedules may change slightly from one day to the next, but most weekdays will follow a similar format. Activities include:

  • One-on-one counseling
  • Peer group discussions
  • Classes on stress and anger management
  • Psychiatric therapy for mental patients
  • Exercise
  • Twelve-step meetings
  • Daily reflection time

There are also meal periods and there is also an one to three hours a day that is set aside for recreation and personal hobbies. Weekends during an inpatient treatment period can include group outings, extra downtime, and visitations with family members and time with friends. Generally when a patient is prescribed attendance at family counseling tend to have those sessions on either Saturday or Sunday.
