Our continued goal is to be your “one stop” on the road to recovery, and provide you guidance to select the best possible recovery provider possible.
What is Inpatient?
Inpatient or “rehab” is a residential treatment center where patients reside for various lengths depending on their program. The average stay is 30 days, but most addiction treatment facilities offer longer programs (60 days, 90 days or even longer).
The length of treatment depends on several factors, including the severity of the addiction, the existence of any co-occurring mental health conditions, and whether the person has been through rehab before.
Most inpatient centers offer family programs, where members of the patient’s family participate in family counseling and activities. This provides the opportunity to mend trust and identify dysfunctional relationships or dynamics that could trigger a relapse. Families can help encourage and support their loved one by being actively involved in their recovery.
Inpatient is typically followed by a outpatient program where the client continues their treatment but resides in a sober living facility, in an effort to transition them into their daily lives.
