Recovering from an addiction isn’t easy, but it can be done. There are plenty of treatments available that have helped people stop abusing drugs and start living productive lives again. While the treatment doesn’t provide a cure (there isn’t any), it does help people maintain their sobriety. If you’re looking for rehabilitative treatment for yourself or a loved one, it’s important that you understand the programs that are available. One of these is the inpatient treatment program.
An inpatient treatment program or residential rehab involves individuals living in the treatment facility full-time. This type of program provides patients with the help they need to overcome their addiction within a safe, secure environment – one that separates them from negative outside influence. In addition, it provides them with 24/7 emotional and medical support. Generally, an inpatient program can last for a month up to a year.

All rehabilitation facilities have their own process, but it is more than likely that the patient will need to be interviewed and assessed by a professional in order to determine what treatment option and approach will work best with that particular individual.
This interview and assessment will help the facility in developing a personalized treatment plan based on your specific circumstances and needs. The patient may undergo several extensive assessments such as a medical examination and a psychological assessment. The patient will also be asked about his history of drug use and any family history of addiction. It is also during the intake process that the patient may be asked to discuss financial arrangements regarding his treatment. All of this will help the facility determine how to tailor the program in order to meet the patient’s current situation and needs.
The actual treatment program starts with a medically assisted detox. This involves a team of physicians and other medical professionals who will monitor the patient’s vital signs as he undergoes withdrawal. Medications and other treatments may also be provided to help the patient manage any withdrawal symptoms such as muscle pain, vomiting, diarrhea, and insomnia. In addition, the team can quickly provide assistance if the patient experiences any changes in his health that require immediate medical attention such as a seizure, stroke, or heart attack.
After detox, the focus will be on helping the individual get well and teach him how to live a life that is free from substance abuse. It will include helping the patient identify and address the root cause of the patient’s behavior as well as any triggers that may lead him to relapse. It will also help the patient learn more constructive patterns of behavior. -Aside from therapy, the program will provide the patient with help to address other issues such as social, medical, and financial needs. Part of the program may include participation in other types of activities such as wellness and fitness activities, educational and experiential workshops, and nutritional assessment.
