Inpatient Rehab

Reading Time: 7 minutes

Inpatient rehab is one of the many treatment options available if you or a loved one has been suffering from drug abuse and addiction. In fact, it is often the best way to begin your addiction recovery in order to safely and effectively end your substance abuse and create a better life. There are many different inpatient drug rehab programs that provide a number of treatment methods and opportunities for people like you to build a strong recovery from addiction.

What is Inpatient Rehab?

Inpatient treatment is a type of rehab program for addiction in which you will receive 24-hour surveillance and care from medical professionals (including doctors, nurses, and counselors). These facilities offer accommodations to patients in order for you to stay at the center overnight for as long as your program lasts. Inpatient drug rehab programs also often offer:

  • Extended treatment options beyond the evidence-based approaches normally offered in most rehab centers
  • A controlled environment where you can safely recover from addiction away from any problematic issues you may otherwise encounter at home
  • Medical and psychological care for any additional issues with which you may be struggling
  • A personalized treatment program that is assessed and modified continually based on your changing needs and progress in the program
  • Help to transition into aftercare treatment once the program has ended

There are a number of benefits associated with this program, and many people choose inpatient care as their initial treatment program for addiction. Let us help you find the right center for your needs as well as answer any questions you may have about rehab in general.

Do I Need Inpatient  Rehab?

Inpatient drug rehab is often a very beneficial choice for addiction treatment, specifically because it is such a hands-on option and because you will receive access to many more treatment methods by attending it. But how do you know if you need inpatient drug rehab specifically?

  • Inpatient rehab, as previously stated, is a better choice for addiction recovery if you have never before attended a professional treatment program for your substance use disorder. This is because of the well-roundedness of the program as well as its ability to meet the multiple needs of patients. If you are just beginning your recovery from drug abuse, call 800-654-0987 to find an inpatient rehab program that will fit you. Then, once your initial treatment program has ended, you can transition into an outpatient facility or another type of program that provides less intensive treatment as aftercare.
  • Those who suffer from co-occurring mental disorders in addition to addiction will often fare much better in a more intensive treatment program like inpatient rehab. This is a serious concern, as the population of individuals with substance use disorders is twice as likely to also suffer from a mental disorder. Therefore, if you have a mental disorder in addition to your addiction, inpatient care is the best choice. If you have not been tested for this possibility, make sure to do so as soon as possible so you can be aware of what treatment options you will require in your recovery.
  • If you do not have a strong social support system at home, inpatient care is the best option for you. In a controlled, tightly structured program like this, your doctors, nurses, counselors, and even other patients will become a part of your social support network, helping you avoid the possibility of further substance abuse and any other issues associated with your addiction.
  • Many people who have been using drugs do not feel safe at home or are living in an environment that is not conducive to recovery. If you have had a similar experience, it will be much more beneficial for you to attend inpatient care than to leave treatment every day and go back to an unsafe or unfavorable environment.

These are some of the strongest reasons to attend inpatient drug rehab rather than another option for addiction treatment. However, it is best to consider which option seems to be most beneficial to you overall and to choose that one. Inpatient care can be very helpful under a number of circumstances; call 800-654-0987 to learn more about this type of treatment program.

Treatment Options in Inpatient Drug Rehab

The treatment options offered in inpatient drug rehab centers are often more varied than those offered by outpatient facilities. They can include:

  • Medications, for the treatment of withdrawal symptoms, cravings, and the reestablishment of normal brain functions
  • Behavioral therapies, for the ability to learn better life skills, including how to cope with stress and cravings, how to avoid triggers, and how to make smarter and healthier choices when it comes to substance abuse and other important issues
  • Holistic options, for the treatment of the entire individual, not just specific symptoms, including:
    • Yoga
    • Meditation
    • Massage therapy
    • Dance therapy
    • Art therapy
    • Animal therapy
    • Journaling
  • Other options, including:
    • Vocational counseling
    • Housing help
    • Educational counseling
    • Nutritional classes

Some inpatient rehab centers also provide luxury accommodations to patients, including a pool and spa, hotel-like rooms, and gourmet meals. Depending on your specific situation, you may feel that one or more of these options are especially important to your recovery, and we will help you find a treatment center that provides them. It is always important to consider your needs as a patient and an individual before searching for the right rehab center for your recovery.

How Long Does Inpatient Drug Rehab Last?

Most inpatient rehab centers offer treatment that lasts 30, 60, or 90 days. Which length you will receive will depend largely on the severity of your addiction and dependence and the decisions you and your doctor make together about your recovery program. In addition, some inpatient drug rehab programs provide long-term options that can last a year or more, so it is necessary that you discuss all your options with your doctor in order to create a program that is best for you.

How Will I Pay for Inpatient Drug Rehab?

Although there are some free or low-cost inpatient drug rehab programs, access to these facilities is based largely on need. If you can pay for treatment, it is better that you do, so as not to take a place in one of these centers from someone who truly requires it. Also, rehab is a form of healthcare, and it is usually safer and more beneficial to choose an option better and more reliable than whatever is the cheapest available choice.

You can pay for your inpatient drug rehab in a number of ways:

Insurance Options

Your insurance plan should pay for at least a portion of your rehab, especially if you bought it through the Health Insurance Marketplace. If you have questions about what your insurance will cover, you can always call your provider to find out. We can also help match you with rehab facilities that will take your insurance plan.


As you will likely still have a copay even if you do use your insurance plan to pay for some of your programs, you can finance this cost so that you do not have to pay it all at once. When you come to the facility, you will likely be asked to pay a portion of the amount due, and then, to pay it off gradually after you attend the program. This can be a very reliable and easy way to pay off your rehab costs.

You can also ask for the help of your friends and family who will very likely want to see you succeed in your recovery and will want to help you pay for the program if they can. Just remember that addiction treatment is a form of healthcare and while expensive in some cases, it will be essential to your safe recovery and to your healthy life after addiction.

Finding the right inpatient drug rehab center can seem like an extremely daunting task, especially if you are searching for a facility for your loved one. We are here to help you find the right option that will create a strong foundation of recovery and begin a beneficial chapter in your life.

  • First, consider your needs, especially those associated with your addiction. It is still important, though, to consider any that are not specifically associated with your substance abuse but will still be affected by your treatment program.

    • Provide the treatment options you need

    • What is your facility’s success rate with addicts in my condition?
    • How long do your treatment programs generally last?
    • What treatment options do you provide to patients?
    • How much of my costs will be covered by my insurance plan?
    • What can I bring to the facility? What shouldn’t I bring?
