What are the Benefits of Residential Treatment?

Benefits of Inpatient Rehab

The 2020 National Survey on Drug Use and Health suggests nearly 40 million Americans had a substance use disorder in that year. This number represents an increase of almost double the data provided for the 2019 survey. Addiction is a disease that touches the lives of people from all demographics without concern for age, ethnicity, gender, income, or otherwise. Addiction is diagnosed based on levels of severity, and choosing the most effective addiction treatment program requires considering the level of care and support you need to achieve lasting sobriety. If you (or a loved one) struggle with a severe drug or alcohol addiction or have previously completed treatment and experienced relapse, inpatient rehab at Liberty House in Michigan may be the best level of care to meet your treatment goals. By learning of the benefits of residential treatment, you can find the best rehab for you.

What Is Inpatient Rehab?

Inpatient rehab programs like Liberty House Recovery are intensive programs that require the participant to “live” at our Michigan rehab facility throughout your treatment program. Inpatient programs, also called residential rehab programs or residential programs, are highly suggested for someone struggling with a severe addiction, relapsing addiction, or with co-occurring mental or physical health concerns. Relapsing addiction occurs when you have completed an addiction treatment program in the past and returned to harmful drug or alcohol use patterns.

When you choose a residential rehab program, you will “check-in” and remain on-site throughout your 20, 60, or 90 days of treatment. The duration of your program is unique to your needs and goals. The “right” length of treatment depends on how long it may take to adequately address the roots behind addictive behaviors. Our patients have access to essential psychological, physical, and spiritual care at an inpatient rehab.

Many inpatient addiction treatment programs have higher rates of success than other levels of care (such as outpatient) because the “residential” treatment environment reduces interaction with potential relapse triggers during the course of treatment.

Top 3 Benefits of Inpatient Rehab

Inpatient rehab offers several benefits. This is not to say that outpatient or intensive outpatient programs are unsuccessful; however, there are instances where inpatient rehab provides more significant opportunities for success.

Medically assisted detox and withdrawal

Depending on the specific nature of your addiction, detox and withdrawal can be challenging. Certain substances produce powerful, sometimes dangerous withdrawal symptoms that are best managed with the help of medically assisted detox services. At an inpatient rehab, you will have consistent access to medical and mental health supports to help make the detox process more manageable. Additionally, inpatient rehab removes access to triggers and substances in general, which leads to improved detox success rates.

Structure and support

Inpatient rehab programs are designed to be heavily structured. This allows for minimal free time to fixate on cravings and other challenges that can lead to difficulties during treatment and recovery. Keeping busy and reducing “idle time” helps dramatically reduce relapse rates during and after treatment. Also, constant access to treatment professionals helps your treatment better assess the effectiveness of your current treatment plan. This allows them to determine if your current plan is working well or if your treatment team should adjust your individually designed program to meet your needs better as your treatment needs evolve.

Uniquely designed, personalized treatment

The struggles one faces when addicted to drugs or alcohol are unique to that person. Each substance has differing impacts on your physical and mental health. These differences are related to the substance itself and to the person. The challenges associated with getting sober are equally as personal. Therefore, inpatient rehab centers need to work directly with each patient to develop individualized treatment plans based on their specific care needs. Individualized treatment plans are proven to provide greater opportunities for positive treatment outcomes as they address your particular needs.
