Drugs Inpatient Care
When a person has tried all the outpatient alternatives (like counseling) for drug addiction then outpatient treatment is the only choice for them. The inpatient drug rehab program (also called residential treatment) is most successful in the treatment of “Long-Term” drug addiction. Its goal is to obtain long-term abstinence from addiction. In inpatient treatment, the addict admits and stays at a rehab center for some time-period. There he learns to apply various recovering techniques on himself for overcoming addiction. Also he gets to know the ways for eloping relapse and how to identify it. He takes part in various therapy processes and counseling to completely recover from addiction. The patient is able to get the information he needs and is protected from outside influences. The person entered inpatient rehab program has no contact with the outside world – not even with their parents and friends. It is done for helping him to recover and to stop worrying about outside world problems. The inpatient treatment program is of two types:
It depends upon some factors for taking decision about the best suited program for someone out of these two. It includes: length of the time the addict person is taking drugs or alcohol, policies of the rehab center and upon addict himself.
The main feature of inpatient drug rehab program is that it provides its professional treatment & counseling for 24 hours a day and 7 days a week (24x7). Thus each person gets support from counselors and other patients in this 24x7 care service. Each patient gets individual attention in this program and thus is able to recover very fast. The inpatient program provides plenty of counseling for patients as well as their families. It can also be useful for those who have undergone outpatient treatment but remain unsuccessful in overcoming addiction. Also those people who are living very far away from drug rehab center or the addict is also suffering from some other medical problems.
The main disadvantage of residential rehab program is that it is very costly. It is not affordable by many people. So this limits its scope because of its high cost. The people are looking mostly for low cost treatment centers.
The people who are suffering from drug or alcohol addiction could join this program. It provides both short-term and long-term modes of treatment. It is bit expensive program but those people who can afford this could definitely get benefit. This program is available for people of all age groups.
