We Do Recover

The term inpatient can be defined as an individual who resides and receives treatment at a medical or rehabilitative facility. It refers to a type of addiction treatment where you stay at a specialized facility for a specific period of time. During your stay, you receive comprehensive and structured care to help you overcome addiction but are classified as an “inpatient”.

The history of inpatient dates back to the early 20th century when the first addiction treatment centers were established. These centers were often based on the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), a renowned mutual support program for those struggling with alcohol addiction. Throughout the years, inpatient treatment has evolved and become more effective in addressing various types of addictions, including drug dependencies.

When you opt for inpatient treatment, you benefit from a safe and supportive environment. The facility offers round-the-clock medical care, counselling sessions, and therapeutic activities tailored to your recovery needs. Many inpatient programs also provide detoxification services to help manage withdrawal symptoms during the initial phase of recovery.

Inpatient treatment typically lasts for a specific duration, ranging from a few weeks to several months. The length of your stay depends on various factors, such as the severity of your addiction, your progress, and the recommendations of your treatment team.

During your time in an inpatient program, you’ll have the opportunity to engage in individual counselling, group therapy, and educational sessions. These treatment modalities aim to address the underlying causes of your addiction, teach coping skills, and help you develop a relapse prevention plan.

Inpatient treatment can offer a more structured and intensive approach to addiction recovery compared to outpatient programs. By removing yourself from external triggers and negative influences, you can focus solely on your recovery and increase your chances of long-term sobriety.

While inpatient treatment can be an effective option for addiction recovery, it may not be suitable for everyone. Factors such as financial constraints, work commitments, or the absence of a supportive network can influence your decision. It’s important to explore all available treatment options and consult with addiction professionals to determine the best path for your recovery.
