Recovering from addiction is a full-time job, and a major benefit of inpatient drug rehab facilities is that they’re designed for you to succeed
Discover the Many Benefits of Inpatient Drug Rehab with OHR Program Options
When you, or a friend or loved one, are in need of San Diego drug rehab, it’s often overwhelming to evaluate all of the different options for addiction treatment. Outpatient care can be quite convenient; however, inpatient drug rehab in San Diego often has a higher success rate and comes with many conveniences that aren’t available in an outpatient setting. Read on for the top benefits of inpatient drug rehab for addiction treatment.
Living On-site = Intense Focus on Recovery
When you choose an inpatient setting for drug rehab, the clients undergoing treatment reside in the facility for a certain period of time. The length of time depends on the length of the program; however, many drug rehabs in San Diego offer 30, 60, 90 day or even longer treatment programs for their clients. If you are able to stay, choosing a longer treatment program is very beneficial and has a strong correlation to your chance of successful recovery without relapse.
There are many benefits to living on site of the addiction treatment program. By living onsite, the client is being placed in a new environment where there aren’t threats to sobriety and recovery. Drugs and alcohol are strictly prohibited in an inpatient rehab program, so the option to ‘use’ when things are getting difficult is removed. In addition, when things do become difficult, as they often do during recovery, there is always someone to turn to for help because there are staff members available around the clock. There are no distractions from the outside world in inpatient rehab, so you can truly focus on your recovery in our San Diego inpatient rehab center.
Detox and Get Treatment in One Place
San Diego inpatient drug rehab has detoxification centers on-site. A medically supervised licensed detox is the safest way to detox from drugs or alcohol. Should you require detox before treatment, finding an inpatient rehab with a detox center in the same location is highly recommended. By going directly into rehab following detox, you increase your rate of success in treatment because you aren’t going to be lured back into drinking or using drugs after you detox from them. Instead, you’ll immediately begin addiction treatment in an inpatient setting.
More Variety of Treatment Options
San Diego Inpatient drug rehabs typically offer a larger variety of treatment options since they are able to utilize more staff, more room, and more structure to the program. Addiction treatment options such as group and individual counseling, recreational activities, access to medical staff, and relapse prevention/life skills training are highly sought after in the recovery world. Finding a treatment program with most or all of these options is difficult if you are looking for an outpatient recovery program. Most reputable inpatient rehabs are able to offer a wide variety of treatment options so that each person can be treated as an individual, which also increases the success rate of recovery without relapse. In addition to the variety of programs that inpatient rehabs can offer, they can also treat more than one type of addiction, or even offer dual diagnosis treatment.
If you or a loved one has made the decision to start treatment, don’t delay in contacting an inpatient rehab in San Diego today to get the process started. It’s never too early to get help with treatment. The important thing is to get help before it’s too late.
