In considering drug or alcohol addiction treatment, you may be wondering what you can expect from inpatient treatment. An inpatient rehab center provides intensive, 24/7 supervised treatment without distractions from the outside world, enabling you to focus all of your attention on your recovery. When choosing an addiction treatment program, you should consider your lifestyle, the level of care you require, the therapy options offered, and your goals for recovery.
Generally, an inpatient rehab begins with a comprehensive assessment from the intake specialists. Typically, the team will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan to achieve your recovery goals from the information you provide about your mental health, medical, and substance use history.
Who Are the Inpatient Treatment Care Providers?
Knowing what to expect before committing to inpatient addiction treatment can help alleviate some of the worries or fear you may be feeling about entering rehab. Following your intake assessment, if you are currently using, you will enter a medically supervised drug and alcohol detox center. Generally, the team will strive to minimize discomfort during the withdrawal process. Typically, the medical and clinical staff will monitor you around the clock to ensure that you are safe and as comfortable as possible.
With detox behind you, you will be ready to begin the real work of recovery in an inpatient addiction treatment center. Here, your treatment team will include:
- Physicians, nurses, and psychiatrists
- Licensed addiction counselors
- Clinical case manager
- Wellness and fitness specialists
- Continuing care coordinators
Inpatient treatment is usually highly structured and organized to provide the security and support necessary for effective treatment. Inpatient treatment offers an extensive array of evidence-based, holistic, and alternative treatment modalities adaptable to meet each client’s unique needs. Our treatment team professionals have extensive experience in their chosen fields and have helped countless clients overcome the symptoms and effects of their substance use disorders and mental health disorders.
A Typical Day in Inpatient Addiction Treatment
Inpatient treatment has the most effective success rate for all levels of addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders. In most cases, substance abuse or addiction is a symptom of an underlying mental health condition. At Westwind Recovery®, we know the importance of treating co-occurring substance abuse and mental health disorders simultaneously to achieve the best results for lasting recovery.
Routine and structure are the cornerstones of inpatient treatment. Having to adhere to a regimented daily schedule reinforces accountability, which most people suffering from addiction have lost. You will be required to wake up at a set time, follow a program based on your individual treatment plan, and go to bed at a set time. A typical day will include the following:
- Scheduled meal times
- Individual therapy sessions
- Group therapy sessions
- 12-step meetings
- Recreation time
- Time to complete therapeutic assignments
At Westwind Recovery®, we firmly believe that a critical component to keeping clients invested in the process of recovery is to make it as engaging as possible. To that end, we provide experiential, holistic, and recreational therapies that enhance traditional and evidence-based treatments.
