What are the Benefits of a Residential Drug Rehab Facility
What is inpatient rehab?
A person with a substance abuse issue can get 24-hour care and treatment at an inpatient rehabilitation facility. This differs from day treatment programmes where patients return home at night, where inpatient programmes provide round-the-clock care.
When an individual requires medical supervision due to a serious addiction, inpatient rehabilitation (also known as residential therapy) is the best option. This type of environment often exists outside of a hospital and serves to foster a group of people who can help one another through the process of overcoming substance misuse. A typical stay in a residential treatment centre lasts 30 days, while there are programmes that provide more extensive care (between 60-90 days). A person’s need for long-term or short-term residential treatment depends on the extent of their addiction. Inpatient rehabilitation has several advantages, which we explore next.
