Inpatient Rehab

What is Inpatient Rehab?

Drug and alcohol inpatient rehab centers serve several functions related to addiction treatment and recovery. Recovery starts with getting sober and is a part of your life indefinitely. And then, after you stop drinking or using, you still have a lifelong challenge of staying clean and sober. So, you will need a solid commitment. Providing therapy, education, and support for recovery after treatment is just as crucial for a treatment center, if not more so than helping you get sober. The majority of programming at any rehab center is focusing on building skills and habits that encourage long-term sobriety.

There are an estimated 17 million adults with alcohol use disorder (AUD). Sadly, the National Institute on Drug Abuse estimates that only 1 of every ten seek or receive any treatment. Part of the reason for such dismal numbers is that most individuals aren’t aware that they have a drinking problem. [1] Others don’t want to undergo inpatient rehab programs due to several reasons.

Alcoholism is a severe and debilitating disease that will progressively get worse the longer it goes untreated. Exhibiting even one of these behaviors can be indicative of potentially dangerous alcohol addiction. An alcohol rehabilitation center can help mitigate the unpleasant withdrawal effects and help with behavioral therapy for this chronic relapsing brain disorder.

How Much Does Inpatient Rehab Cost

Anyone looking for a drug and/or alcohol inpatient rehab treatment is likely to have their insurance benefits considered if they are available. Alcohol rehabilitation is costly, but it does not have to break the bank if you have an insurer we accept.

How Long is Inpatient Rehab

Alcohol addiction rehab at a residential treatment program typically happens on a 30, 60, or 90-day basis.  Ideally, a patient will enter residential treatment and will undergo evaluation regularly to determine their progress.  This would be the sole factor in determining the length of their stay.  However, factors such as financial limitations and family or work obligations play into the decision.  Therefore, in some cases, individuals may spend longer than 90 days in their residential treatment program.

How Long is Inpatient Alcohol Rehab

Withdrawal from alcohol is an important first step to overcoming your alcohol-related problems. However, withdrawal isn’t an effective treatment by itself. You’ll need further treatment and support to help you in the long term. [2]

The length of time you or your loved one will be in their alcohol rehabilitation program could vary from a few days to the better half of a year. A significant variant in how long a person will be in rehab is what type of rehab program(s) they are admitted to. For instance, one person may be hospitalized for inpatient rehab treatment, then transition to a residential program to complete a 30-day program.

Most residential addiction treatment programs require an alcohol use disorder to go through detox before admission. Many rehab companies have detox facilities, whereas others have relationships with detox centers that they refer to. Alcohol detox can range anywhere from 4 days to over a week. 5-7 is a typical timeframe for alcohol detox and withdrawal. Once detox is completed, they may transition into residential treatment to have therapies or approaches to underlying issues or the causes of addiction. This is extremely helpful for relapse prevention.

What Happens in Inpatient Alcohol Rehab

First, each client, upon arrival at our rehab treatment center, undergoes an extensive and comprehensive physical and psychological exam. These exams are conducted by our team of physicians, counselors, and mental health specialists. Together your clinical team will determine the whole of your underlying issues for proper treatment. After that, a customized individualized treatment plan is devised. And where appropriate, integrated dual-diagnosis co-occurring treatment for secondary related mental health disorders is incorporated.

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), 7.9 million adults suffered from co-occurring disorders in 2014. [3] We now know that for many clients their development of addiction may have come about as a response to secondary mental health issues left untreated.  For this reason, the treatment community recognizes that long-term recovery does not come in a one-size-fits-all program.

There are two significant signs of alcohol addiction:  tolerance and withdrawal. First, the body builds up a tolerance to alcohol after continued exposure. As the body adapts to continue functioning, the tolerance increases and leads to a person needing to consume even more alcohol to achieve the desired effects. Furthermore, the body begins to expect the presence of alcohol, and the chemical make-up of the body depends on it. The second sign is withdrawal. These withdrawal symptoms are dangerous because they might be fatal. So, the need for inpatient rehab is necessary without a doubt during this critical time.

Physical symptoms of the second stage include stress and anxiety, accelerated heart rate, disorientation; nausea, the need to purge, and insomnia. If a person experiences these symptoms yet continues to drink to calm the discomfort, these are true, clear signs that help is necessary.

We Level Up TX treatment center is well staffed with full-time primary therapists, including family therapists and or family support specialists, case managers, clinical directors, and behavioral techs. Each client is assigned their primary therapist generally within 24 hours of admission.

Clients in inpatient rehab and detox level of care focus on medical stability. They meet with medical staff daily along with nursing staff several times throughout the day. Client med pass occurs multiple times per day. Patients are evaluated by nursing staff, receive detox progress evaluation. And have their vitals taken along with the provision of prescribed medications. Once clients are medically stable, they may progress to a residential level of care. At this level of care, clients now see medical staff twice per week (unless required more often) and they are required to attend both one-on-one and group therapy sessions.
