Why Choose Inpatient Treatment Centers?

  • According to studies, inpatient treatment centers provide the most effective means of treatment for addiction.
  • Statistics show that the longer a patient remains in inpatient treatment, the longer the patient will remain abstinent from drugs.
  • Inpatient treatment centers are safe and effective.

When you decide that it’s time to get help for your addiction, you’ll be faced with the challenge of deciding whether inpatient or outpatient treatment is going to be right for you.  Each of these types of treatment has benefits but they both have their own disadvantages too.  Choosing the right treatment is vital to your success in recovery so it’s important to consider the options and to have a thorough understanding of what each type of treatment can provide before you make a final decision.

Benefits of Inpatient Treatment

Is an inpatient treatment center the best choice for you?

According to studies, inpatient treatment centers provide the most effective means of treatment for addiction.  The primary benefit of inpatient treatment surrounds the fact that the entire recovery process is monitored for patient safety.  Individuals who attend inpatient treatment are more likely to stay sober, remain abstinent from drugs or alcohol and continue working toward their recovery.  Statistics even show that the longer an individual remains in treatment, the more likely he or she will be to stay sober for a prolonged period of time following treatment.

Inpatient treatment provides patients with the following benefits:

  • consistency and around-the-clock care
  • medical monitoring and evaluations to ensure patient safety
  • removal from the drug or alcohol use environment which reduces the risk of relapse
  • support from peers and from counselors or therapists

Choose Inpatient Treatment for Safety

While you may find it difficult to make the decision to go into a residential treatment program, safety should be the primary concern no matter what type of addiction you suffer from.  Inpatient treatment centers offer the safest solutions to recovery from drug or alcohol addiction and they are the only real way for those who suffer from dangerous drug or alcohol dependence problems to properly recover without the risk of relapse.

Medical monitoring during addiction treatment ensures that patients remain stable during detox.  For heavy addictions to alcohol or certain drugs such as heroin or prescription medications, detoxing alone can be highly dangerous and may lead to complications that require immediate medical attention.  Because inpatient treatment offers around-the-clock medical care and there are professional nurses and doctors on staff to provide immediate treatment if necessary, patients can safely detox even from the most dangerous drugs.

Choose Inpatient Treatment Centers for Stability

Not only will inpatient treatment centers ensure that the patient remains medically stable during the challenging times of treatment such as the early days of drug or alcohol detox, these programs also offer the stability in the sense of regular routines.  Many addicts have lost a sense of stability as a result of their addiction. They stay up late, sleep odd hours, don’t take care of themselves or fail to perform routine tasks such as laundry, working to pay bills or caring for their children.  Inpatient treatment centers help these individuals to get their lives back on track by instilling a sense of stability and creating a stable environment that promotes healing and helps the addict to remain stable after treatment which can lead to longer sobriety times and reduced risks of relapse.
