Inpatient Addiction Treatment

Inpatient or residential treatment programs provide a drug- and alcohol-free living environment along with services that help you build a strong recovery. Residential rehab programs should include evidence-based group and individual counseling. They may also include individualized treatment programs and daily activities that reinforce sober-living skills.

Residential rehab programs that offer a continuum of care, from detox to aftercare and alumni programs, can help to increase your chances of long-term, successful recovery. These programs are also a good choice for treating co-occurring mental health disorders.

A number of studies have shown that MAT can be effective in treating opioid and alcohol use disorders. MAT can be used as part of a residential treatment program or it can be a stand-alone program offered on an outpatient basis.
