Inpatient treatment provides many benefits beyond outpatient services, especially for those struggling with severe or long-standing addictions. The first advantage is creating a safe and substance-free environment, with immediate access to medical care and therapeutic support.
Further, the residential setting promotes peer support – living alongside others on a similar journey encourages a sense of community and mutual understanding, significantly contributing to recovery.
Most crucially, inpatient treatment allows for the developing of a comprehensive and personalized treatment plan. Patients engage in individual and group therapies, family counseling sessions, and various holistic treatments like yoga and meditation. This amalgamation of treatments is tailored to address each individual's unique needs and recovery goals.
The inpatient treatment process at Pathways Recovery Center begins with a detailed intake procedure. Our team of professionals conducts a comprehensive assessment of the patient's health status, the severity of addiction, and personal history, enabling us to design a personalized treatment plan that best suits their recovery needs.
Our inpatient treatment program begins with detoxification, a critical initial step. Under the supervision of medical professionals, this process utilizes medication and support mechanisms to manage withdrawal symptoms effectively. Detoxification is essential, given that 6.4% of Californians met the criteria for alcohol abuse
from 2015 to 2016, necessitating medical detox in some cases.
Following detoxification, patients transition into the healing phase of treatment. This phase includes various therapeutic strategies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and motivational interviewing (MI). These therapies are aimed at reshaping thought patterns that drive substance abuse.
In addition, education about addiction and recovery forms a significant part of our treatment process. Through workshops and counseling sessions, patients understand addiction's nature, the recovery process, and strategies to prevent relapses.
If you or a loved one is struggling with substance addiction and finding it challenging to quit despite previous attempts, inpatient treatment should be considered. Indicators that inpatient care may be required include experiencing withdrawal symptoms during periods of abstinence, neglecting essential responsibilities, and persisting in substance use despite its detrimental impact. Notably, in a 2021 survey on drug use and health
, statistics revealed that 16.5 percent of the population met the DSM-5 criteria for a substance use disorder within the past year, highlighting the significance of seeking appropriate treatment.
Inpatient treatment is particularly beneficial for those with severe addictions or recurrent relapses. It’s also a viable option for individuals with co-occurring mental health disorders, as our center provides integrated treatment for addiction and mental health conditions.
