Inpatient drug rehabIf you are living with drug addiction, you may need professional help to heal and recover. If your addiction is severe, you may benefit from an inpatient program. Inpatient drug rehab is the most powerful of all the addiction treatment program styles and offers a chance for you to break the addiction cycle.

To decide if this is the right treatment for you, you must understand how inpatient drug rehab programs work.

What Happens During Inpatient Drug Rehab?

Before you can enter into the “flow” of an inpatient drug rehab program, you must first engage in detox. Drug detox helps the body cleanse itself of the harmful toxins found in drugs and alcohol. During this process, you may experience a number of withdrawal symptoms, but when detoxification is complete, you should be healthy enough to continue on with the remainder of the program.

Drug addiction counseling is the next step to recovering from your addiction. Counseling and therapy make up the lion’s share of your day during inpatient drug rehab.  This is where you will have the chance to talk openly and honestly about your addiction with counselors, fellow patients and family members.  Therapy can bring about a real breakthrough, teaching you how to respond more positively to the triggers that bring about drug abuse in the “outside world.”

Following these two stages, you will then engage in aftercare. Aftercare programs are a means for learning how to cope, post-rehab, in the vital weeks and months following treatment.  In a world filled with stress and potential temptation, the support and structure provided by these programs are quite invaluable. Some common aftercare programs include:
