Inpatient rehab is a program designed for people who want to take back control of their lives. It’s a chance for the patient to focus on themselves without any interruptions. People should view rehab and Residential Treatment as a place of safety and a place for healing – that is exactly what Daylight Recovery Center’s inpatient rehab program is, a place of serenity. We understand that when a person picks up the phone to ask for help, this is his/her “moment of clarity”. Often, something significant has occurred in one’s life to trigger a person to want to make a change. Losing a job, divorce, DUI, arrest or losing custody of a child are just a few factors that often prompt someone who is suffering from alcoholism or a drug addiction to want to make a change.
Residential Treatment – What to Expect
Whether you’ve lost your job, are doing poorly in school or experiencing relationship problems due to substance abuse, we’re here to help you! First and foremost, we are a judgement-free zone. At Daylight Recovery Center, we applaud those who are brave enough to stand up and recognize they are struggling with a drug and/or alcohol dependency. It may not sound like much, however, it is a huge step in the right direction! Anyone who has battled addiction, or is close to someone who has, knows how large of a leap one must take in order to admit that he/she is suffering from addiction.
To put it into perspective, many people are too ashamed to admit the truth, and end up suffering in silence for an entire lifetime. This is incredibly sad and tragic. Addiction is a disease that typically requires medical intervention to provide safe and effective care for the person suffering from the disease. Without proper supervision from a licensed medical professional in an inpatient rehab-setting, those going through withdrawal symptoms run the risk of many uncomfortable side effects, including seizures.
While this sounds awful, it is the most effective ways to get someone onto the path to recovery. Leaving the problem untreated poses greater risks, including overdose and death. We always recommend doing your research prior to selecting a substance abuse treatment center as treatment plans will vary depending on the facility. Many wonder if inpatient rehab is necessary, especially when they see that outpatient rehab is an option at many facilities.
While we do not disagree with the many benefits that outpatient rehab offers, inpatient rehab (residential rehab) is designed for people with drug or alcohol addictions. Polydrug abusers, when a person consumes more than one drug at once, will benefit significantly from a residential rehab setting. This is because residing where you are receiving your inpatient rehab rids you of temptations and other outside stimulus that you would face if you opted for outpatient rehab and allows you to focus on yourself.
Inpatient rehab is the ideal choice for treating addictions, especially during the early stages of recovery. Residential rehab provides patients with 24-hour care in a safe and comfortable environment. Patients can rest easy knowing that they are never alone while they’re working towards overcoming their addiction. Patients who suffer from other mental health conditions will benefit greatly from inpatient rehab programs since they have access to medical attention 24-hours a day. If a patient is going through a particularly difficult moment during their treatment, they can count on our kind and compassionate medical team to be there when he/she needs it most. Inpatient rehab is highly structured in order to benefit the patient. Most patients appreciate the intensity of residential rehab as it is proven to be highly effective.
Residential Treatment with Daylight Recovery
At Daylight Recovery Center, we believe that a successful treatment plan involves a combination of inpatient and outpatient rehab. In the early stages of treatment, we recommend inpatient rehab for our patients to receive 24/7 round the clock care. People in inpatient rehab programs are more likely to participate in treatments such as therapy and counseling as these activities take place where the patient is staying at the time.
Daylight Recovery Center’s inpatient rehab program is unlike other substance abuse facilities across the nation. We provide a safe, quiet and soothing environment for our patients to maximize the benefits they receive during their stay with us. Rehab is a place for healing so it’s imperative to provide a warm and compassionate environment where our patients feel comfortable.
It’s not unusual for people to be hesitant to the idea of living at a center while they undergo rehab, but it’s important to emphasize that in order to gain the full benefits of a rehab program, one must put 100 percent of his/her time and effort into the healing process. We do our best to help patients feel at home by providing a dedicated flat screen television for each bed. Our recreational room is full of a variety of books, games, exercise equipment and a 450-gallon saltwater fish tank. Our partnerships enable us to provide even more activities for our inpatients. Lastly, we provide an onsite Chef who cooks nutritious and delicious meals all from scratch.
Understandably, people do not want to be away from family and loved ones, yet it’s amazing to see the transformation a patient undergoes after spending some much-needed time reflecting and learning the skills necessary to continue living a life of sobriety. Inpatient rehab programs usually last about three to four weeks depending on the needs of the patient. Upon completion, our team helps you transition to the next phase of your recovery process. We often recommend our patients to continue with an outpatient rehab program as recovering from the disease of addiction is a slow and steady process. With respect to cost, we accept most major insurance providers.
Alternative Options and Extended Care
Partial Hospitalization Program:
After a patient completes residential treatment, he/she will likely transition to a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP). Often described as a middle ground between residential and outpatient treatment, PHP is the ideal program for those wishing to begin the transition to living independently without sacrificing the level and intensity of their addiction treatment. This program is designed to help patients overcome hurdles and triggers that have fed their addiction. Patients continue attending structured programs, like in residential treatment, yet go home in the evening.
Intensive Outpatient Programs:
Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) are treatment programs designed to address addictions, eating disorders, self-harm and other dependencies that do not require medical detox. Patients suffering from Substance Use Disorders (SUDs) and other addictions have found this level of care helpful on their road to recovery. Many patients are unable to enter residential treatment due to family or work commitments. IOPs enable patients to continue with their day-to-day lives, while receiving treatment for their addiction. IOPs will vary depending on the facility you choose. Patients should expect to dedicate 10-12 hours per week for this level of treatment. It’s important that the patient has a stable living environment free of any drugs, alcohol or other triggers that can set back his/her recovery. Those with severe cases of addiction, or co-occurring disorders, are best suited for residential level of care for their safety.
Completing a drug or alcohol residential rehabilitation program is a major accomplishment, but the work doesn’t stop there. Those who have suffered from addiction are at risk for relapse after successfully completing a rehab program. This is because addiction is a chronic disease, meaning it cannot be cured. A structured aftercare plan after completing your rehab program should be in place for this reason.
Examples of aftercare services for those recovering from an alcohol or drug addiction include:
• Individual, family and partner/spouse counseling
• Group therapy and family therapy
• Educational programs focusing on the nature of addiction and mental illness
• 12-step programs such as AA and NA
