Inpatient Drug Rehab Centers

Inpatient Drug Rehab Centers

Drug and alcohol addiction are serious problems in the United States, affecting every city and town. 20 million Americans currently have a substance abuse disorder and an average of 78 people die every day from an overdose. The heroin crisis in our country has created an even bigger need for inpatient drug rehab programs. The costs of addiction are staggering as well. In the U.S., alcohol, drug, and tobacco abuse cost the nation more than $740 billion a year in crime, healthcare, and lost work productivity.

While the majority of Americans know someone with a substance use disorder, only 10% of people addicted to drugs or alcohol receive any treatment. Besides saving lives, drug and alcohol abuse treatment is also cost effective, yielding a return of between $4 and $7 in reduced drug-related crime, theft, and criminal justice costs for every dollar spent on treatment programs. There is also increased benefits of greater workplace productivity, reduced number of children in foster care, and fewer drug-related accidents and deaths.  Clearly inpatient drug rehab saves lives, saves families, saves money, and saves communities.

The Importance of Inpatient Drug Rehab

For many with drug or alcohol addiction, an important component of treatment involves getting out of harmful or stressful situations, dangerous or inadequate living situations, and peer groups that reinforce the addiction. Inpatient treatment allows you to spend time healing, away from the people, places, or things that helped reinforce or encourage your drug or alcohol use. During your treatment, you will be surrounded by people who understand what you are going through and can help support you through your recovery, teaching you healthy coping strategies and behaviors to help you live a clean life.

In addition, early recovery is when cravings are typically the highest. Inpatient treatment removes the temptation to drugs during this time. Without inpatient settings, relapses are more common because the temptation to use drugs or alcohol, especially during the detox and withdrawal stages. Turning to substance use during this time is not an option during inpatient treatment.

Finally, inpatient treatment can make it easier to diagnose co-occurring mental health disorders. Dual diagnosis is common with substance use disorders. In fact, 7.9 million people in the U.S. are living with both an addiction and a mental health disorder. Sometimes when only the addiction is treated, the co-occurring mental health disorder is missed. Inpatient treatment can allow for both conditions to be detected, diagnosed, and addressed.

What to Expect During Inpatient Rehab

The first step to getting sober and living a clean life is to have the courage to seek help for your addiction. Seeking help is not a sign of failure or weakness. In fact, it takes strength to reach out and accept help. Once you make the call for inpatient drug or alcohol rehab, you will typically follow four major steps: intake, detox, treatment, and aftercare.


During intake, you will meet with a team of specialists, which might include nurses, mental health professionals, and addictions counselors. You will be assessed for the severity of your addiction, as well as any additional mental health disorders like anxiety or depression. It is essential that you are honest and up-front during this process. There is nothing you can say that a team of qualified addictions professionals has not already heard and when you are honest about your problem, you can receive help that is most appropriate for your situation.

 During this time, a personalized treatment plan will be created based on your physical, mental health, and spiritual needs, as well as your personal preferences.


The detoxification process can be a physically and emotionally difficult process. For many drugs, the withdrawal process can have uncomfortable physical symptoms, in addition to worsening any underlying anxiety or depression. There are also some drugs that can be dangerous to detox from cold turkey and must be done with a gradual weaning.

It is important to have a team of qualified addictions specialists to help you through your detoxification. Having a team with you 24/7 can help you manage your detox symptoms and drug or alcohol cravings. They can also help you with gradual or medication-assisted detox if appropriate for your situation.


Following detox, you will begin treatment aimed at giving you the tools necessary to live a clean and sober life. During this time, you may undergo group and individual therapy to address your addiction, any history of trauma or abuse in your life, and any co-occurring mental health disorders. You might also undergo nutrition, medical, or exercise therapy to help your body heal from the effects of drug or alcohol use. Finally, during this time, you will learn strategies to cope with stressful situations, cravings, overwhelming feelings, and everyday life, including mending relationships and developing a support group outside of the treatment facility.


Aftercare can be one of the most important components of your treatment. Your recovery may last months, years, or even a lifetime, and it is essential to have support throughout. This may include support groups like Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous. It might also involve individual psychiatry or counseling to help monitor your recovery. Some employers might require drug or alcohol testing as well. Finally, controlled living environments, such as sober living houses or halfway houses might be included in your aftercare plan if needed.

Detox During Inpatient Addiction Treatment

Detoxification can be a mentally and physically taxing process. Going through detox during inpatient rehab is the best option because you will have professional support with you 24/7 to manage withdrawal symptoms, cravings, and any gradual weaning necessary. You are also free from the temptation to use drugs or alcohol to avoid withdrawal symptoms. In inpatient treatment, while going through the detoxification process, you will also learn about yourself, your addiction, and how to fight it, giving you the best chances at a full recovery.

Are alcohol and drugs ruining your life?


Inpatient vs Outpatient Treatment

There are several key differences between inpatient drug rehab and outpatient treatment. Often, inpatient drug rehab is recommended as a starting point when finding recovery. Inpatient drug rehab is an intensive therapeutic program that takes place at our facility with around-the-clock care. You will live at Monarch Shores’ treatment homes during your detox and initial treatment and spend your day in group, individual, and recreational therapy. These homes have ocean views, luxury furnishings, a fitness center, and chef-catered meals to help you be comfortable and relaxed during your treatment process.

Once you are ready to step-down to a less intensive approach, you will begin outpatient treatment. Monarch Shores we offer outpatient treatment after your inpatient drug rehab is complete. However, if you are ready to return to your hometown than part of our aftercare plan is to find you an outpatient facility in the community you are returning home to. Outpatient programs are a great way to help you stay sober in early recovery. It is also a place where you can discuss the coping skills and other addiction recovery tools you learned during inpatient treatment and how they are working for you in real life situations.
