The decision to stop using drugs or alcohol is a difficult one to make, but once you make it, you want to fully commit yourself to recovery. An inpatient rehab center will allow you to do just that. Desert Cover Recovery is the leading inpatient rehab facility in the Phoenix area. Offering a safe and comfortable environment and using a holistic treatment process, we have helped countless people beat addiction, attain sobriety and regain control of their lives.
What is an Inpatient Rehab Center?
Inpatient rehab is a residential setting that provides treatment for drug and alcohol addiction and abuse. Unlike an outpatient setting, where patients return to their homes after each treatment session, at an inpatient setting, patients remain on the premises of the facility throughout the duration of their treatment.
For the average person, the length of stay at an inpatient rehab center is 30 days, but some patients may need to or prefer to stay longer; 60 or 90 days, for example. At Desert Cove Recovery, the length of stay in our inpatient facility depends on the severity of the addition and they type of substance that a person is using. We also take any underlying mental health conditions into account when determining the recommended length of stay for our patients, as well as the number of times they have been to rehab before.
The Benefits of Inpatient Rehab
As far as addiction treatment programs are concerned, inpatient rehab centers are considered the gold star standard. These facilities offer a number of benefits that have proven to be highly beneficial over other treatment programs.
Focus and Commitment
When someone makes the decision to stop using drugs or alcohol, being focused and committed to treatment is vital for success. An inpatient program removes exterior stresses that may inhibit a person from fully focusing on his or her recovery. Things like work, family life and other stressors that may divert a patient’s attention from recovery and may be triggers for using drugs and alcohol are completely removed. In other words, patients can fully focus on and commit themselves to their recovery, which increases the likelihood of success.
24 Hour Care
At an inpatient facility, patients receive 24 hour care as they are going through recovery. During detox, patients are fully monitored by professionals who specialize in handling withdrawal and can assist them should any emotional or medical issues arise. Once detox is completed, patients continue to have access to 24 hour care. For example, should a person have a difficult time in the middle of the night, a counselor will be available to provide assistance to get him or her through the rough patch.
Sense of Community
Going through recovery alone can be tough. Many people find it difficult when they feel like nobody else understands them, or when they are the only person going through such a tedious struggle. At an inpatient rehab center, there’s a sense of community; patients feel like they belong and can receive the support and strength that they need in order to push through and overcome their addiction. This sense of camaraderie can make all the difference in the world when it comes to recovery.
Faster Rate of Recovery
Individuals who attend an inpatient rehab center have a faster rate of recovery than those who don’t. Patients do not have the ability to access drugs or alcohol, which prevents the ability to relapse while going through treatment. Additionally, since patients are able to be more focused on and committed to their recovery, the rate of recovery is much faster than in an outpatient or any other type of recovery setting.
Greater Long-Term Success
Inpatient rehab centers have been found to provide greater long-term success. Not only do the therapies and treatments that patients receive help them to better understand and therefore overcome their addiction, but before leaving treatment, they receive post-treatment care. Patients receive invaluable tools that will help them remain on track with their sobriety as they return to the ‘outside’ world. Recommendations for outpatient treatment programs and sober living facilities, as well as tips and strategies to effectively handle triggers are all a part of post-treatment care and allow for greater long-term success.
What to Expect
What can you expect when you are admitted to an inpatient rehab facility? At Desert Cove Recovery, our patients undergo a four-step process, which includes:
- Detox – The first stage of the recovery process, detox rids the body of the toxins left behind by drugs and alcohol. During detox, our patients receive the assistance that is needed to help them deal with withdrawal symptoms, ensuring safety and comfort during this crucial period.
- Assessment – Once patients have successfully completed detox, a trained clinician will conduct an assessment. This will allow us to better understand each patient’s specific needs so we can device the most effective treatment plan.
- Treatment – The treatment process will include individual, group and family therapies, educational lectures and activities that are intended to foster accountability and boost self-esteem.
- Post-Treatment Education – Before patients are discharged, they will receive post-treatment education that will help them transition from rehab to the ‘outside’ world.
