Inpatient programs treat individuals with substance use disorder (SUD) and related mental health conditions. Most people attend shorter 30-day programs, but some require long-term residential care. The severity of your symptoms and side effects will determine which program is best for you. Facilities like California Care Detox and Treatment use prescreen and admissions assessments to decide what services will be most helpful in your treatment. Inpatient treatment provides the best support for individuals with mild to severe symptoms.

How is Inpatient Rehabilitation Different From Outpatient Programs?

Inpatient treatment takes place in a facility where multiple people attend daily treatment sessions. California Care Detox and Treatment offers residential inpatient programs that can last from a week to three months. According to the results of clinical research published in Addictive Behaviors, study participants who completed inpatient treatment had a lower risk of relapse.

The next step after inpatient treatment is usually an outpatient treatment program (IOP), sober living community, or other forms of community-based or private continuing care. Partial hospitalization (PHP) and IOPs consist of weekly or daily treatment sessions.

Intensive outpatient programs allow you to stay at home overnight and attend to personal or professional responsibilities between sessions. Some facilities offer in-home outpatient care where a trained professional either visit daily or stays at your home for a set period.

What Happens During Inpatient Treatment?

During inpatient care, you will have daily individual and group therapy sessions and other treatments to help you manage the mental and physical symptoms of withdrawal. The facility provides a private space where you can sleep and spend your free time between mandatory activities. Standard services you can expect to benefit from during residential inpatient rehabilitation include:

  • Mindfulness-based therapy and activities
  • Medically supervised detox and withdrawal
  • Relapse prevention therapy and education
  • Development of essential life skills

Collaboration is essential for successful inpatient treatment, which means you will be working closely with your care team to create and implement a comprehensive care plan. The team responsible for your treatment will consider any religious, cultural, or personal preferences while determining which services and treatment modalities would be the most beneficial for your recovery. Attending an inpatient program gives you access to the following:

  • Structured and controlled environment
  • 24/7 medical assistance
  • Higher rate of successful long-term recovery
  • Less risk of severe reactions to detox and withdrawal
  • Regular nutritional meals
  • Peer support

How Do You Prepare For Inpatient Treatment?

During inpatient treatment, you will be away from your home, family, and work for weeks or months. Preparation is vital to make the transition less stressful for yourself and your family. You may need to do the following:

  • Inform your workplace or school about your absence
  • Pre-pay or set up autopay for recurring bills
  • Make arrangements for children or loved ones
  • Have someone you trust available to look after your pets or home
  • Inform your doctor or therapist about your plans
  • Make transportation plans to and from the facility
  • Contact the facility to make sure you know what to bring

At California Care Recovery, patients can expect to receive personalized addiction treatment that is tailored to their specific needs. The first step in this process is an assessment, which takes into account various factors such as the patient’s medical history, psychological profile, and the type and length of addiction. 

Based on this initial assessment, the patient will be asked to join a short-term or long-term residential rehab program. The residential rehab program focuses on addressing the root causes of the disease, helping you or your loved one recover from the ground up, and minimizing the chance of a relapse.

You will have multiple departments looking after your care and ensuring you meet recovery goals.
