There are various levels of treatment available for someone living with a substance use disorder. The level of care that is needed depends on the severity of the person’s addiction and other factors. At The Recovery Village at Palmer Lake, inpatient rehab treatment is the most intensive level of care offered following medical detox.

What Is Inpatient Rehab?

Inpatient rehabilitation offers constant live-in care for people with substance use disorders. At an inpatient care facility, all evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation is supervised by medical professionals. Inpatient services can include medical support, individual and group therapy, family therapy, medication management and recreational therapies like yoga. Consistent and thorough support is given on a structured schedule to help support patients in their recovery. 

How Long Is Inpatient Rehab?

Inpatient treatment varies depending on the person. Short and long-term facilities provide different levels of care. Long-term inpatient treatment can be anywhere between thirty to ninety days or more. 

What Is the Criteria for Inpatient Rehab?

Inpatient rehab requires a person to meet certain criteria. The criteria that are common among most inpatient rehab programs are:

  • A diagnosis of chemical dependency with symptoms lasting over a month
  • Medically stable and not in active withdrawal
  • Proven social support for aftercare
  • Emotional capacity to participate in the rehabilitative therapies in a productive way

How Much Does Inpatient Rehab Cost?

Inpatient rehab cost depends on the location, whether it is a private or government-owned facility, provided amenities, and how much of the cost is covered by the individual’s insurance. The average cost of an inpatient rehab stay is approximately $12,500. 

Is Inpatient Rehab Covered by Insurance? 

All insurance companies have different criteria regarding what they will cover for substance use treatment. The best way to find out whether or not an inpatient stay is covered by your insurance is to call the insurance company or speak with us to verify your insurance.

Benefits of Inpatient Rehab 

Inpatient rehab offers a safe, secure and stable environment for those who are seeking treatment for substance abuse. Anyone who’s been unsuccessful with less structured options and requires a higher level of care can utilize many benefits of inpatient rehab:

  • On-site detox
  • Comprehensive assessment and ongoing evaluation 
  • 24-hour clinical support and nursing staff
  • Psychiatric care
  • Individual and group therapy
  • Recreational therapy
  • Sense of community 
  • Medication management
  • Meals prepared by an on-site chef
  • Aftercare and discharge planning

Inpatient Rehab Programs

Drug rehab treatment caters to the source of the addiction, and should also address any co-occurring conditions. Treatment depends on the individual, and it specializes in the specific substance in order to provide targeted and effective treatment for the person’s unique needs. In most cases, patients start with a medical detox, then transition into inpatient rehab once they’ve cleared the substance from their system.

Inpatient Alcohol Rehab

Alcohol rehabilitation begins by addressing the mental and physical symptoms of alcohol abuse and withdrawal. One severe alcohol withdrawal symptom called delirium tremens requires close medical and psychological monitoring. Alcohol rehab can also include individual and group therapy, vocational and life skills training, and other supportive modalities.

Inpatient Drug Rehab

Drug rehab features many of the same interventions as alcohol rehab, but specific treatment may vary depending on the drug used. Those who have used intravenous drugs will also need to be screened for HIV and Hepatitis B & C. Drug rehab includes various therapy methods and medical monitoring to ensure patients’ well-being and safety.

Inpatient Rehab for Co-Occurring Disorders

Some people who need treatment for a substance use disorder also suffer from other mental health conditions like depression, anxiety or bipolar disorder. In the case of co-occurring disorders, each condition requires treatment to lay the roadmap for successful recovery.

Co-occurring disorder treatment includes medication management for the co-occurring mental health condition, therapeutic interventions and individual behavioral therapy to strengthen coping skills and mental health.
