Florida Center for Recovery (FCR) offers inpatient addiction treatment programs for individuals age 18 and older. This treatment program strives to assist those who suffer from addiction or co-occurring substance abuse and mental health disorders. Individuals with moderate to severe addictions should attend inpatient addiction treatment. This is because inpatient addiction treatment provides intensive therapeutic services and 24/7 supervision and care.
What Is Inpatient Addiction Treatment?
Inpatient addiction treatment is any rehab program that requires its patients to live in the rehab facilities that they’re receiving treatment at while attending rehab. These treatment programs require patients to do this because those attending inpatient treatment need constant care and supervision to remain sober. Often, inpatient care is necessary in cases of severe addiction.
Types of Inpatient Addiction Treatment Programs
Not all inpatient addiction treatment programs are the same. In fact, there are two separate types of inpatient addiction treatment programs, standard inpatient treatment and residential treatment. Although many people use the terms inpatient treatment and residential treatment interchangeably, there are differences between the two.
Similarities Between Standard Inpatient Treatment and Residential Inpatient Treatment
There are many similarities between standard inpatient treatment and residential inpatient treatment. For one, both require their patients to live in the rehab facilities that they’re receiving treatment at while attending rehab. Both forms of inpatient treatment also provide 24/7 supervision and care.
Another similarity between inpatient treatment and residential treatment is the amount of time that they occur in. In fact, both inpatient and residential forms of addiction treatment last from around 28 days to 90 days. Both of these forms of inpatient addiction treatment need to last this long to provide those with moderate to severe addictions with the intensive treatment and care that they need to achieve long-term sobriety.
Differences Between Standard Inpatient Treatment and Residential Inpatient Treatment
One key difference between inpatient and residential treatment is their intensity and structure. Standard inpatient addiction treatment programs are slightly more intense and structured than residential inpatient treatment programs since inpatient rehab is most suitable for patients who suffer from slightly more severe addictions.
In many cases, residential treatment patients suffer from slightly less severe addictions than standard inpatient treatment patients do. As a result, residential treatment is a bit more casual, allowing patients to have more free time to themselves. Residential treatment patients partake in more holistic treatment practices and recreational activities than standard inpatient treatment patients.
The Advantages and Benefits of Inpatient Addiction Treatment
There are benefits to attending all forms of inpatient addiction treatment. One pro to inpatient treatment programs is the safe and secure living environments that they provide. This is particularly beneficial for recovering addicts who live in toxic environments with addiction triggers and temptations.
Inpatient treatment programs’ removal of real-world addiction triggers and temptations can also be seen as a benefit. This is because removing all distractions, triggers, and temptations can help individuals focus on their recovery while in rehab.
Another benefit to attending inpatient addiction treatment is that you’ll receive 24/7 supervision and care to help prevent you from relapsing. This is beneficial since relapsing is very common for individuals that attend addiction treatment. This is especially the case for individuals that attend rehab for severe cases of addiction like those that attend inpatient forms of addiction treatment.
Cons of Inpatient Addiction Treatment
Just like with anything in life, there are also cons to attending inpatient addiction treatment. One con to attending inpatient addiction treatment is that you can’t maintain your day job or upkeep your day-to-day responsibilities. This is because inpatient addiction treatment takes individuals away from society.
Not being in everyday society also prevents recovering addicts from being able to practice the skills and coping mechanisms that they’re learning in rehab in the present time. Therefore, recovering addicts must wait until after rehab is over to test if the skills and coping mechanisms that they learned in rehab actually work for them. This is a con because not containing the ability to practice one’s addiction prevention skills and coping mechanisms while in rehab could hinder individuals from making necessary adjustments to their addiction prevention plans until it’s too late.
Inpatient Addiction Treatment vs. Outpatient Addiction Treatment
There are many differences between inpatient and outpatient forms of addiction treatment. Some of these differences are described below.
Living Arrangements: One difference between inpatient and outpatient forms of addiction treatment is that inpatient treatment programs require their patients to live at a rehab facility. Outpatient treatment program patients live in their own homes when not receiving treatment.
The Level of Intensity and Structure: Another difference between inpatient and outpatient forms of addiction treatment is that inpatient treatment is more intense and structured. Therefore, individuals with severe addictions should attend inpatient forms of treatment.
The level of severity of addiction of a person that’s attending outpatient treatment varies. It varies depending on the type of outpatient addiction treatment program that the individual is attending.
The Amount of Supervision and Care: Inpatient treatment programs provide 24/7 care and monitoring while outpatient treatment programs do not. As a result, patients of outpatient rehab programs go back to their own homes once treatment is over.
The Ability to Maintain Day Jobs and Responsibilities: Inpatient treatment program patients are not typically able to maintain their day jobs or upkeep their day-to-day responsibilities because they no longer live at home. Outpatient forms of addiction treatment differ in this aspect, allowing patients the time and flexibility to maintain their day jobs. Outpatient treatment programs also provide patients with the time and flexibility to upkeep their day-to-day responsibilities while in rehab.
The Ability to Function in Society: The 24/7 monitoring and care of inpatient treatment programs also prevent inpatient addiction treatment patients from interacting in society. Outpatient treatment programs, on the other hand, provide patients with the time and flexibility to function in regular society.
Length of Treatment: Inpatient addiction treatment programs also last much longer than outpatient addiction treatment programs. For example, an inpatient treatment program tends to last anywhere from around 28 to 90 days.
Outpatient treatment programs, on the other hand, last anywhere from a couple of hours a day, once or twice a week to all day, five to seven days a week. It depends on the type of outpatient addiction treatment program an individual is attending.
