What Is Inpatient Addiction Treatment?
Inpatient rehab is a form of intensive addiction treatment, providing safe, stable housing with medical and addiction specialists available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
At AdCare Treatment Centers in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab begins with a comprehensive evaluation of each patient’s individual situation and needs. This includes assessing the level of addiction, determining if there are any underlying medical or psychological conditions to be addressed, and developing a personal addiction treatment plan.
Unlike AdCare’s outpatient addiction treatment options in New England, which are more flexible and counseling-based, our inpatient addiction treatment facility in Worcester, MA and our inpatient rehab in Rhode Island treat alcohol and drug addiction in a more structured, residential rehab environment. Some participants may need to complete our medical detox program before starting the rehabilitation phase.
Inpatient addiction treatment programs may include individual, group, and family therapy, case management services, support groups, and .1 The addiction treatment services rendered vary and are determined by factors specific to the individual and treatment facility. At our inpatient drug and alcohol rehab facilities in New England, you can expect:
- 5–7 hours of group therapy per day.
- Health and wellness groups led by nurses and licensed medical staff.
- Educational groups led by addiction specialists.
- Process and focus groups.
- Relapse prevention services.
- Meetings that follow the 12-Step model.
- Counselors trained in and
- Individual therapy at least once a week, usually more.
- Family integration, including a family day and monthly family groups (in-person availability is subject to change due to COVID-19; family services may be via telehealth).
- Treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders.
AdCare’s residential addiction treatment facilities throughout New England provide family-style cooking, comfort food, and Sunday brunch, as well as a large dinner on Sunday evenings. Coffee, snacks, and juice are always available, and a nutritionist is on staff to help with meal planning.
Patients at our inpatient rehab facilities can expect semi-private rooms, private baths, a fully equipped gym, and many other amenities. Recreational activities include:
- And more.
AdCare’s two residential addiction treatment locations also offer crisis stabilization, designated for patients with both addiction and serious psychiatric symptoms that require immediate care. Staff performs a psychiatric evaluation of the patient and determines what medications or therapies are needed to manage symptoms.
How Long Do You Stay in Inpatient Rehab for Addiction?
The length of inpatient rehab differs from person to person and can include:
- Short-term medical detox from drugs or alcohol
- 30-day inpatient addiction treatment programs
- 2-3 month combined inpatient and outpatient addiction treatment plans
Someone’s recommended stay in residential care depends on variables, such as age, type of substance(s) used, extent of addiction, and underlying mental or physical health conditions.
While any amount of professional addiction rehab may be beneficial and jumpstart a person’s recovery, studies show that staying in treatment for enough time is crucial to a person’s recovery and that, very often, people need at least 90 days to stop their substance use.2 At AdCare, we offer a full continuum rehab of care to keep you supported and engaged in your recovery after inpatient rehab.
What Happens After Inpatient Rehab?
Inpatient treatment is just one step in the recovery process. At our Massachusetts and Rhode Island inpatient addiction treatment facilities, we understand the importance of continued care after residential rehab ends, which is why our rehab aftercare planning starts on Day 1. Upon admission to one of our residential rehab facilities, each patient meets with our skilled clinicians and is assigned a case manager; this team works together to develop a treatment and follow-up plan tailored to the patient’s individual needs.
While inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is considered the most intensive form of addiction treatment, there are less intensive options as a person progresses along the continuum of care, including outpatient services. These include:
- Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
- Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
- Standard Outpatient
AdCare is uniquely equipped to help program graduates continue their recovery with aftercare plans and alumni connections. Additionally, case managers can arrange appointments for every patient with their primary care doctor, who can help manage follow-up and aftercare.
