The road to recovery from drug and alcohol addiction is long, and it requires addressing the many underlying concerns that can lead to substance abuse. This is why inpatient treatment is so helpful for those struggling with drugs or alcohol. Inpatient rehab, also known as residential treatment, provides the intensive care and around-the-clock support that many people need in early recovery. In these programs, clients receive evidence-based treatment through therapy sessions, peer support and holistic activities that help heal both the mind and body.
Although inpatient care is a highly effective way to begin the recovery journey, it’s only one step in the process. Long-term healing often requires the continued support offered by full-service treatment facilities like the Orlando Recovery Center. At our rehab facility, clients receive a full continuum of care that helps them gradually progress through each step of treatment — from detox to aftercare — in a way that meets their unique needs in recovery.
Inpatient rehab is an intensive treatment program that helps clients begin healing from addiction in a safe, supportive environment. Each client lives on-site at the rehab facility and follows an individualized treatment schedule that addresses their substance use and its underlying causes. A person’s treatment plan typically includes:
Inpatient rehab is typically the most effective option for those with moderate to severe addictions. However, since substance use and intoxication greatly reduce the effectiveness of treatment, clients must complete detox before beginning rehab. Detox can be difficult or even dangerous due to withdrawal symptoms that occur when quitting drugs or alcohol. Fortunately, medically assisted detox programs can make the process safer and much more comfortable.
The treatment process doesn’t end with inpatient care. Instead, clients graduate to outpatient treatment, which provides more flexibility and independence while still offering a high level of support and care. Following outpatient treatment, clients begin the long-term aftercare stage. Aftercare helps promote lifelong recovery through services like alumni events, routine check-ins, peer support group meetings, relapse prevention plans, medication-assisted treatment and more.
Alcohol is a unique substance because although it is addictive and can be dangerous, it is widely available and legal to use. Alcohol addiction can develop slowly, gradually changing from a way to “wind down” to an everyday coping mechanism. It can be tough to stop the cycle, especially when trying to quit leads to uncomfortable or dangerous withdrawal symptoms.
Since alcohol use can be both difficult and dangerous to stop, many people turn to professional rehab facilities for medical detox, inpatient care and ongoing support. Rehab treatment helps people address their addiction and the underlying factors that caused it, such as stress, difficult home environments or undiagnosed mental health concerns. It also teaches people healthier ways to cope with life situations or events that would have triggered alcohol use in the past.
Effective drug addiction treatment also involves addressing the whole person — not just their substance use. For example, one person may begin misusing a medication because it helps them sleep, while another might use an illicit drug to cope with symptoms of anxiety. If these underlying causes of substance abuse aren’t treated, recovery will be nearly impossible. The same triggers and negative feelings that originally led to drug use will still exist, making relapse likely.
Inpatient rehab addresses these concerns and teaches people healthier and more effective ways to manage difficult feelings. Many addictions stem from mental health disorders, for example, and treating these mental health conditions can go a long way toward preventing future drug use. Inpatient treatment provides medication assistance, therapy, counseling and relapse prevention strategies that help people maintain a healthier, drug-free life in recovery.
Since inpatient rehab includes on-site accommodations, meals and around-the-clock support, it can be more costly than less intensive services. Many factors can contribute to the cost, including amenities, type and length of program, insurance coverage and more.
Fortunately, most health insurance providers will cover some or all of the costs of rehab. If you do not have insurance, many rehab facilities offer individualized payment plans that can accommodate your financial situation.
Everyone deserves to get the treatment they need, and the Orlando Recovery Center will work with you to make it possible. Contact one of our helpful representatives to learn more about what your insurance provider may cover.
