Types of Inpatient Rehab that you Might Not Know About
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, there are many types of treatment for drug addiction. Not all types of care work for all people. This is why it is important to know about all the types of inpatient care available to you before making a decision as to which one you need.
Focused Inpatient Drug Rehab for a Specific Drug
This type of rehab focuses on treatment for a specific drug or medication. You might want to be with others that are suffering from your exact drug problem. You might not realize this but sometimes an addiction center that specializes in your addiction can be more beneficial than one that uses more broad techniques.
Inpatient Alcohol Rehab
This type of rehab focuses on just treatment for alcohol addiction specifically. Again you have the benefit of being in a treatment center that specializes in one addiction rather than many. Depending on the severity, alcohol addiction can be very dangerous when you quit. An alcohol specific rehab can give you the medical and singular attention that you need to overcome your alcohol addiction.
Therapeutic communities are highly structured programs where the entire community acts to help with your recovery. The staff, patients, and other people involved in the day to day operations of the therapeutic community are all involved in your treatment. In a therapeutic community you are also expected to help with both the community and in supporting other patients.
Inpatient Behavioral Addiction Rehab
This is an inpatient facility that specializes in behavioral addiction rather than drug addiction. A behavioral addiction is an addiction to a specific behavior such as eating, gambling, or shopping. These addictions are just as strong as a physical addiction to drugs. Many behavioral addiction facilities treat multiple types of behavioral addictions.
Holistic Inpatient Rehab
Holistic inpatient rehab is a rehab based off the belief that in order to treat an addiction you need to treat the whole person. This means that the physical, psychological, and spiritual aspects of a person need to be in balance before the addiction will go away. Holistic treatment centers often use alternative therapies such as:
- art and music therapy
Holistic treatment centers also sometimes combine traditional treatment methods with alternative therapies.
Short Term Residential Treatment
This is the most common type of inpatient treatment. Short term residential treatment facilities often help the patient detox from the drugs and then transfer the person either to a long term facility or outpatient treatment. Short term treatment is preferable when the drug addiction does not have an underlying cause or to temporarily treat someone who is a danger to themselves or others.
Dual Diagnosis Inpatient Rehab
Dual diagnosis inpatient rehab is designed to help those who have a mental or physical disorder as well as an addiction. When people have a disorder that causes the addiction, the addiction goes away after the disorder is treated.
Although the different types of treatment centers might be confusing, it is important to choose the right center for you. You can find information about any of these inpatient rehab facilities by simply calling us at 800-681-7369Who Answers?.
