Inpatient Alcohol and Drug Rehab centers in Atlanta

Inpatient addiction treatment is for people with Substance Use Disorder (SUD), or co-occurring SUD and mental health, who need a higher level of care than an outpatient treatment program. The majority of inpatient treatment centers have a detox component which is typically the first step when you arrive before you start various therapies. Inpatient treatment centers that do not have co-located detoxification programs, have referral arrangements with nearby hospitals to help you or your loved one safely overcome withdrawal symptoms.

What is the Detox Process in an Inpatient Setting?

Detox—the process of methodically ridding your body of substances—permits you to embrace the follow-on therapy with a clear mind, so you’re capable of working with your treatment team on the underlying issues that may initially have caused you problems with substances. Inpatient addiction treatment involves living 24/7 at the facility, taking you out of the potentially toxic environment where you used substances, giving you a safe, distraction-free, place to heal.

After your period of detoxification at the inpatient addiction treatment program, you will learn more about the nature of your Substance Use Disorder. This newfound knowledge is important as you progress in your recovery to avoid the pitfalls that lead to relapse

How Long Does Inpatient Rehab Last?

Inpatient drug rehab generally lasts from a week to 30 days, but can be for a longer period depending on your progress and clinical needs. Studies show that longer term treatment is more effective than shorter term.

Do I really Have A problem? I Can Quit On My Own!

Substance use does not have to become “severe” to negatively affect your life. Many people wrongly believe that they do not have a problem—a thought process known as denial—or that they can “quit” on their own—despite clear evidence to the contrary, such as legal problems, concerned friends or family members, having problems at work, or losing a job because of their substance use. Addiction is a complicated medical, progressive, brain disease that has serious, potentially deadly, consequences if left untreated. Addiction is often referred to as “the disease that tells you that you don’t have a disease”. Indeed, addiction is a disease of self-deception—cunning, baffling, and powerful.

Are Inpatient Alcohol And Drug Rehab Centers Right For Me?

If you or your loved one have been struggling with substance use, it is in your best interest to take action and explore attending an inpatient addiction treatment center. Inpatient rehab centers offer a more personalized, targeted, and in-depth level of care than outpatient programs or self-help meetings like Alcoholics Anonymous. Inpatient facilities are designed to provide a supportive, healing environment where you can get medical help from highly specialized doctors, nurses, therapists, and support professionals.

Inpatient drug rehab may be ideal for those who:

  • Have relapsed after outpatient or intensive outpatient (IOP) treatment
  • Have insurance resources that readily cover a higher-level of treatment
  • Find themselves in toxic environments from which they need to remove themselves
  • Have chronic health conditions associated with their substance use that requires ongoing medical care

What is the Cost of Inpatient Drug Rehab?

The cost of inpatient alcohol and drug rehab will vary based on a variety of factors, including location, insurance resources, length of stay, and the exact scope of care needed. The majority of insurance plans cover inpatient drug and alcohol treatment just as they do other medical problems.
