What is a Drug Rehab Treatment Program?

Residential drug rehab is a type of addiction treatment where patients reside at a rehabilitation facility 24/7 while receiving supervised and highly structured care for their drug and alcohol abuse. 

Once a person enters inpatient drug or alcohol rehabilitation, they become a full-time resident of their chosen program and receive targeted care and support for 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They may live alone in an assigned room or board with a roommate, eat meals at their facility, and go to structured one-on-one or group therapy sessions several times per day. The average length of stay is 30 days, but depending on the situation, more time may be beneficial to long-term recovery and preventing relapse.

For many, one benefit of inpatient treatment is that it allows for the placement of distance between patients and their potentially problematic home environments. Removed from these distractions and stressors, a person may be better able to focus on recovery efforts—all under the trained guidance and supportive care of a professional addiction treatment team.

About Addiction

Addiction is a multifaceted disease and effective treatment for substance use disorders should adhere to several principles, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). Some of these include:

  • Treatment isn’t a one-size-fits-all endeavor; it should be tailored to each person’s needs, and continually adjusted as these needs change.
  • Treatment should be readily available.
  • Treatment should address any other issues that are present in addition to substance use.
  • Longer treatment periods yield better outcomes. A stay of 90 days or more in treatment may optimize treatment outcomes.
  • Behavioral therapies will be the mainstay of treatment in helping people to maintain abstinence.
  • Medication may be incorporated as needed, in combination with behavioral therapies.
  • Detox is only the first phase of treatment and should be followed by additional treatment to create lasting sobriety.
  • Testing for infectious diseases and education on harm reduction should be available at the program. Programs can help link patients to treatment if they test positive for any illnesses and offer counseling.

Different treatment settings exist on a continuum of care; the most appropriate level is best determined by an addiction treatment professional after careful consideration of a person’s unique circumstances and specific treatment needs.

Many facilities offer both inpatient and outpatient treatment services as part of their program, and a person may move through them as more or less intensive levels of care are needed. Treatment durations may also vary; for instance, a person’s treatment stay could range from weeks to months, depending on the type of program and the person receiving care.

Many patients’ first inpatient experience will be medical detox, where medical staff members are present 24/7 to provide support and medication as needed to ensure comfort and safety during the withdrawal process.

Following a period of medically managed detox, many people will move to relatively less intensive, but still highly structured and supportive residential treatment. Residential treatment programs will initiate frequent and intensive counseling and therapy sessions to help people identify and address the causes of their compulsive substance use. Many residential programs are also equipped to address other issues (e.g., social, medical needs) as part of the patient recovery plan. Residential treatment program lengths vary and may last from weeks to months.

For instance, the therapeutic community (TC) model of care involves a prolonged treatment stay of around 6 to 12 months, and places emphasis on readjusting to life outside of a hospital setting. This type of program provides structure while participants receive counseling designed to challenge maladaptive beliefs and patterns of behaviors, learn more constructive ways of social interaction, and complete any employment or educational training.

What Happens in Drug and Alcohol Rehab?

The experience you have in a drug and alcohol rehab depends on the type of program you attend. Patients will typically remain at their facility full-time throughout the duration of inpatient treatment. Some inpatient treatment facilities offer short-term residential treatment and some facilities have long-term residential programs as well. Treatment therapies consists of individual and group counseling and may also include or behavior therapies. In some cases, medication to reduce cravings may also be provided. 

Do I Need Rehab?

The decision to attend inpatient rehab is highly personal and may be best made after evaluation and guidance from a doctor or other treatment professional. Whether or not you need inpatient treatment depends upon several factors, and the appropriate type of care for one person may be different than another.

Inpatient rehab programs and outpatient treatment programs provide a structured environment for recovery and provide the necessary tools to address how addiction affects various areas of a person’s life.
