Most experts claim that inpatient treatment is the most effective way to help people maintain long-term sobriety. Outpatient treatment may be sufficient to treat short-term addiction. However, a residential treatment program is crucial to help people change negative behaviors and prevent relapse. Learn about inpatient rehab and its benefits.
About Inpatient Rehab
Addiction treatment has three main stages. These include detox, rehab and aftercare support. Stage two, rehab, is a necessary part of the road to recovery. The importance of rehab makes choosing inpatient or outpatient treatment a turning point in the recovery process.
A residential program is ideal for people who have abused drugs for a long time. It’s also a better option for people with severe addictions and co-occurring mental disorders.
Treatment Approaches in a Residential Program
Detox alone isn’t enough to support long-term addiction recovery. People who want to remain sober also need therapy to address the cause of their drug problem. There are several forms of therapy that therapists use to get to the root of the issue.
- Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is used amongst therapists and clients to pinpoint the negative behaviors and thoughts that promote their addiction. Then, they work to correct these negative aspects. Clients also learn how to identify risky situations and develop skills to prevent relapse.
- Contingency management (CM) involves therapists providing clients with incentives or rewards for shifting towards more positive behaviors. This conditioning therapy reinforces these actions and helps clients to continue to make a permanent change. Additionally, therapists sometimes put consequences in place to discourage negative behaviors.
- Family behavior therapy (FBT) is an approach that addresses co-occurring problems in parents, children, and other immediate family members. Some of these issues include depression, conduct disorders, family conflict, child mistreatment and unemployment. During FBT, therapists see a client and at least one family member.
Rehab Amenities for Inpatient Treatment
At Silver Pines Treatment Center, we offer amenities that aid the recovery process. The goal is to create a sense of community that provides support. Amenities such as a gym, yoga classes, and meditation allow clients to relax, regain strength and achieve inner peace.
Residential Treatment Benefits
There are several main advantages of enrolling in a residential program. The first is that it removes clients from the detrimental influences that trigger their drug use. They don’t have to worry about family, school or work responsibilities. With these cares aside, all that they have to do is focus on recovery.
The 24-hour care and structure that clients receive during inpatient treatment have other benefits. Stopping drug use after addiction develops is difficult. Therapists and other staff provide around-the-clock support to help those who struggle. The structure that this treatment provides sets the stage for long-term sobriety.
Since inpatient rehab creates a sense of community, clients receive support from each other as well. They see that they aren’t the only ones who struggle with addiction. Many clients experience very similar situations throughout drug use and recovery. Having people to share feelings with provides key emotional support.
