Inpatient Rehabilitation Will Save You From Living with Drug and Alcohol Addiction
Inpatient rehabilitation is continued therapy after inpatient medical detox treatment. Rehabilitation is crucial to recovery, and is one of many decisive factors defining drug prevention and stress management techniques used to prevent future relapses. Inpatient rehabilitation addresses the mental throes of addiction, and provides clients with extensive therapy from certified physiatrists.
Harbor Village Detox works with a close association of rehabilitation programs and recommends a treatment course fitting to your unique needs. Long-term substance abuse treatment is a process exclusively relative to your level of dependence. Rehabilitation programs aim to discover the reason why patients chose to abuse drugs and alcohol.
Drug consumption is often confused with drug addiction, the two are connected, but differ. Drug consumption can lead to subsequent addiction, and often does for those who are using drugs and alcohol to self medicate. Dependence on opiates, like heroin or pain killers further exacerbates internal conflicts already present.
Specialized substance abuse therapy seeks to address the inner troubles that lead you to a life of addiction. Group therapy is a vehicle of self expression, and encourages patients to reestablish themselves as social beings, who are aware of the feelings and emotions of others. Group therapy can help change the perspective of recovering addicts when they become instruments to help others overcome addiction. With the influence of peer support, sobriety becomes readily attainable.
Patients of inpatient rehabilitation regularly form lasting relationships with their peers, and create a network of support to depend on after the rehabilitation process. Patients can expect to attend inpatient rehabilitation from one week to 90 days. While battling the dark seeds of addiction, an expert addiction recovery therapist will monitor your mental and medical condition as you progress to the road of sobriety.
Identifying the root causes of addiction is the cornerstone of your rehabilitation treatment. Exploring the source of your addiction will help you better understand your condition, and helps to ensure that you will not relapse after treatment is completed.
The medical staff monitoring your rehabilitation will administer specific medications, exclusive to your substance of abuse, that will help to curb the cravings of drug use during your stay, which allows you to focus on recovering. If you are addicted to an opiate based drug, like oxycodone, you may be prescribed methadone- which is a synthetic drug that is administered once per day, and satisfies your body’s biological need for an opiate.
Synthetic opiate replacements enable you to function as you normally would without the effects of illicit substances. Remember: synthetic medications can be addictive, and only serve as a bridge to a life of sobriety in the future.

Upon the successful completion of inpatient rehabilitation, you enter the final stages of drug and alcohol recovery. Instead of submerging yourself into living independently, without having experienced rehabilitated life without the aid of an addiction center, you may choose to enroll in a sober living community. Sober living communities are essentially halfway houses for rehabilitated patients; they serve to re-acclimate recovering drug addicts into everyday life, and allow patients to come and go as they please, while adhering to specific rules, and sobriety.
The benefit of living in communities of recovery is that you are never alone. The residents of your recovery community are experiencing the same struggles you are.
Long-term rehabilitation is not the end of your journey to abstinence, it is merely a portion of the effort required to get clean. In every aspect of your recovery process you will be pushed to the limits of yourself. Upon graduation you will be able to abstain from drugs and alcohols by using the techniques to cope with intense emotions that you’ve learned in therapy. You will learn to avoid old triggers of abuse, which may include certain people, places, and circumstances.
