Inpatient treatment is when someone stays in a rehabilitation facility – day and night – to receive detailed and around-the-clock support and treatment for specific health conditions or concerns.

For those suffering from drug [1] and alcohol addiction, [2] as well as mental health issues [3], inpatient support can be beneficial if symptoms are particularly severe, there’s a risk to your safety or if you require medically-supervised detox [4].

Types of inpatient treatment

In the same way, as if you were receiving outpatient treatment, inpatient treatment for your addiction is tailored to your needs and requirements. An expert team of medical professionals and counsellors will continuously monitor you to determine which types of therapy and treatment will be best. This includes:

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Here, a trained counsellor will encourage you to open up about past experiences, memories and feelings before supporting you to deal with any emotions – without leaning on alcohol or drugs to cope.

Art Therapy

Art therapy sessions, alongside drama, are a popular form of group therapy in rehab centres. It’s believed that being creative allows individuals to release certain feelings and recreate experiences and memories that have been affecting them. Together, you’ll then be supported to analyse your creations, sparking discussion and communicating how you felt.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Talking therapy is used on a group and one-to-one basis to help individuals to challenge negative thought processes. While a counsellor won’t tell you how to feel and act, they will support you to come up with your own solutions.

Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)

In this session, a therapist will listen to you and your feelings. They will accept these behaviours but highlight why they might be wrong and how they could be improved. While the goal isn’t to change your feelings or thoughts, you will be supported to change your behaviours and coping strategies.

As well as these therapy types, sessions can also be carried out on a group or individual basis. What’s more, friends and family members may also be invited to further aid with the recovery process.

It’s thought that a mixture of therapies works best but this will be determined by you and your needs. A variety of well-being and mindfulness activities including yoga, acupuncture, exercise and meditation might also be used to help you to focus on your body, mind and spirit.

Inpatient vs outpatient treatment

If you’re considering whether inpatient treatment is right for you, you may have come across outpatient treatment programmes [5]. The latter would mean that you have access to the same teams and therapies as inpatient rehab but, at the end of the day, you’d return home. This is suitable for those who don’t need 24/7 support but still require ongoing treatment.

There are also daycare support groups that individuals attend on a weekly basis, for either one day or half a day at a time. There isn’t a right or wrong choice when it comes to drug or alcohol rehab and it will depend on your individual circumstances. A trained team of medical professionals will be able to advise on the best route through.

How beneficial is inpatient treatment?

This type of treatment for addiction is the most intensive type of support but has a huge success rate. Not only does it provide you with 24/7 support from a team of medical professionals but you’ll also be away from any triggers and influences in your usual living situation. This means you can focus fully on your recovery. Other benefits include:

  • Structured days filled will therapy, activities and support
  • A safe environment and the chance to meet and be motivated by similar people
  • Opportunities to focus on your physical, mental and emotional health and wellbeing
  • Around-the-clock risk monitoring and support with detox and withdrawal symptoms

It’s completely normal to feel overwhelmed when it comes to residential rehab treatment [6]but it’s important to remember that you’re not alone. What’s more, at Addiction Advocates, we’re here to help you to find a rehab centre that suits your needs to ensure that your path to recovery is a smooth one.
