What Are the Benefits of Inpatient Addiction Treatment Programs?

An inpatient addiction treatment program typically begins with detox, followed by residential programming. A standard inpatient program lasts for about a month from start to finish. Participation in an inpatient program involves attending scheduled sessions throughout the day. Inpatient care provides an immersive experience in which a patient dedicates the majority of their time to education around matters like:

  • Science of addiction
  • Mental and emotional health
  • Communication and coping skills
  • Identifying and handling triggers
  • Relationship building
  • Planning for life in recovery

Patients also receive individualized attention and support in handling matters like co-occurring mental health conditions, unresolved trauma, and other concerns that may contribute to substance use. Inpatient addiction treatment allows patients to prioritize their health and healing. By giving full-time focus to a program, patients can build new habits that will become the foundation for a lasting recovery.

Should I Choose Outpatient or Inpatient Addiction Treatment?

When you’re new to addiction treatment, it can be hard to tell which option is right for you. Furthermore, patients are sometimes hesitant to commit to an inpatient program because it can feel confining to reside full-time at a treatment center. Fortunately, the decision isn’t one you’ll need to make alone. A behavioral health facility will recommend the treatment option that best supports long-term healing from substance use disorder.

Treatment Plan Considerations

Typically, the more prolonged or severe a patient’s relationship with substance use, the more likely it is that inpatient care is the right choice.

Outpatient care offers many of the same benefits as an inpatient program. It’s an effective treatment method when responsibilities or finances make inpatient care impossible.

However, an inpatient treatment program offers many additional benefits that aren’t possible in an outpatient program. Most notably, the immersive environment of inpatient care allows patients to pause their current lifestyle, identify the factors needed to effect lasting change, and eventually leave treatment with a plan in place.

Inpatient treatment also makes relapse an impossibility for the duration of the program. This can be highly effective at helping patients remain substance-free after they’re discharged, as they’ve already spent around 30 days adjusting to life without substances. Patients can leave an inpatient treatment program with the confidence and coping skills they need to remain committed to a lifestyle based on recovery.
