What is Inpatient Rehab All About?

Inpatient drug rehab centers are facilities designed to provide intensive, close-up treatment to individuals dealing with addiction. They provide the highest level of rehab treatment for patients whose lives have become unmanageable due to their addiction. Patients with a severe addiction case or who have tried less intensive treatment options without success may also require inpatient rehab. Individuals who do not have a home environment that is healthy and suited to addiction recovery will also find inpatient rehab valuable for the sense of support and community on offer.

Individuals spend 30 days or longer in inpatient rehab, depending on their treatment program and the specifics of their case. Inpatient addiction treatment centers usually allow patients’ loved ones to be part of their treatment. This helps them identify and root out relationships that may be detrimental to their recovery efforts. Professional evaluation is usually required to determine whether an individual needs inpatient rehab. A licensed professional will also examine the patient to determine the type and level of residential rehab most suitable to their case.

Our Approach to Inpatient Addiction Treatment

At Canadian Centre for Addictions, we understand that no two addiction cases are the same. Each patient comes to our inpatient treatment center with a unique situation, so we devise a client-centered approach for everyone who walks through our doors. We tailor our inpatient treatment strategies to the specific needs of the individual, so they can get well and learn to remain healthy after completing their treatment.

How Do We Treat at Our Inpatient Treatment Center

Our treatment approaches to inpatient drug rehab include the following:

• One-to-one therapy

During one-to-one therapy sessions, the individual spends time with a professional who evaluates their situation to create a treatment recommendation.

• Group therapy

Group therapy is similar to one-to-one therapy, but the professional evaluates clients in groups. Participants may collaborate and exchange feedback with other clients in an open, trustworthy setting that allows them to improve and thrive.

• 24/7 medical supervision and medical detoxification (if required)

Medical detox is a process that helps to eliminate all traces of a drug from the client’s system. 24/7 medical supervision is necessary during detox to manage the often dangerous withdrawal symptoms.

• Mental health support

Many addiction cases exist concurrently with other health issues like depression, anxiety, PTSD, and schizophrenia. We offer mental health support to clients with co-occurring disorders in addition to their addiction treatment.

• Nutrition

Proper nutrition plays a vital role in wellness and addiction recovery. Our in-house chef prepares nutritious gourmet dishes and provides a fine dining experience for all our residents.

• Meditation

Meditative practices help to relax the body and calm the mind. Our full gym and yoga classes provide ample space and opportunity for clients to meditate and focus on their recovery. Massage therapy is also available and is an excellent way to promote mindfulness and relaxation.

• Physical activity

Physical activity has many benefits and helps in the addiction recovery process. Exercise triggers the release of endorphins that releases stress and helps relaxation, taking the mind away from the addiction.

• Lifetime aftercare

Lifetime aftercare is a crucial part of addiction recovery. An aftercare addiction treatment plan helps to avoid relapse long after treatment ends.

• Family programs and support

Addiction impacts an individual and other people in their lives. Family programs and support help family members cope with the effects of addiction on their lives.

Aftercare Follow Up

We remain committed to your lifetime of sobriety and success long after you leave our inpatient treatment center. We provide a lifetime aftercare program that is accessible online from anywhere in North America, or you may choose to continue in person up to twice a week with one of our trained counsellors.

What Therapies and Amenities Can You Expect at Our Inpatient Rehab Center

We understand that overcoming addiction goes beyond treating the addiction and underlying health issues. At Canadian Centre for Addictions, we offer holistic treatment strategies for your physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. We provide the following options to help our patients return their minds and bodies to a healthy state:

• Yoga

Yoga is an ancient practice that centers the mind and keeps the individual grounded through definite rhythmic movements. Patients who have become used to disconnecting from reality via drugs and alcohol can reconnect their minds to their bodies and the moment.

• Nutrition

Hippocrates famously said, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Our clients begin their journey to wellness and sobriety with a healthy foundation of nutrition and good food. Our professional chef creates gourmet dishes for each meal, providing nourishment as well as a fine dining experience for each resident.

• One on One Counselling and Psychotherapy

Being able to identify the underlying issues that led to the addiction in the first place is a crucial step in the journey to authentic recovery. Canadian Centre for Addictions Psychotherapists and Addictions Counsellors provide a minimum of 3 one on one on one sessions weekly to ensure that more effective coping mechanisms are developed and nurtured to help set each person up for success.

• Medically Monitored Detox and Withdrawal Management

Canadian Centre for Addictions’s Medical Team of Physicians, Nurses and Personal Support workers work diligently to help mitigate and alleviate the terrible withdrawal symptoms that prohibit many people from being able to quit drugs and alcohol on their own.

• Physical Activity and Fitness

Physical exercises and fitness have immense mental health benefits and are important in getting and remaining sober. Our full gym, outdoor pool, and yoga classes offer daily opportunities to move, relieve stress, reconnect with your body, distract from the addiction, and prepare for the day or night ahead.

• Recreation

Recreational activities allow clients to recharge when they are not in active therapy. Canadian Centre for Addictions offers many forms of wellness and recreation, from walking on our beautiful grounds, participating in our yoga sessions, or We continually evaluate and upgrade what’s available at our center to keep our residents engaged, rested, and healthy.

How Do I Know If I Need Inpatient Treatment?

It is not always evident that a person has an addiction or needs inpatient therapy. Individuals with addiction tend to deny the problem and hide it from those around them for as long as possible. Every individual has a unique and different route to recovery, and outpatient treatment can be as effective as inpatient treatment for some patients.

However, the following signs suggest that you or your loved one may need inpatient addiction treatment:

  • Trying and failing to stay sober multiple times
  • Attempting outpatient treatment without success
  • Addiction-related adverse physical and mental health effects
  • Legal and financial troubles due to the addiction
  • The presence of a co-occurring mental health problem
  • A home environment that is not supportive or conducive to recovery

What Addictions Do We Treat in Our Inpatient Treatment Center

Our inpatient treatment center helps those seeking relief from the following addictions:

Alcohol Addiction

Alcohol addiction occurs when a person cannot stop consuming alcohol despite obvious negative consequences. As a socially acceptable substance, alcohol is one of the world’s most used drugs, and many people deal with a drinking problem at some point. Alcohol addiction changes the brain and impairs proper functioning. We offer inpatient treatment for alcohol addiction, helping clients find healthier ways of coping without alcohol and supporting them throughout the challenging alcohol withdrawal timeline.

Prescription Drug Addiction

Prescription drugs can become addictive if misused or without a prescription. Examples of potentially addictive prescription medications are opioids, benzodiazepines, barbiturates, depressants, and stimulants. Our inpatient treatment for prescription drug addiction depends on the drug(s) of choice and attends to the root of the addiction while equipping the clients to learn to use prescription medications appropriately.

Heroin Addiction

Heroin is a powerful and highly addictive drug with usually severe withdrawal symptoms. Our heroin addiction treatment approach is intensive and patient-oriented, giving the client a high chance of returning to normal life without heroin. We also offer lifetime aftercare services to help treated clients resist triggers and remain sober.

Methamphetamine Addiction

Methamphetamine is a powerful synthetic drug usually sold illegally and smoked, snorted, injected, or ingested orally. Also known as meth, this drug is highly addictive and has severe adverse mental and physical health effects. We provide intensive inpatient treatment for meth addiction and help clients develop behavioral strategies for living meth-free after treatment.

Cannabis Addiction

Cannabis is one of the world’s most abused and divisive drugs. Popularly known as weed or marijuana, the drug is socially acceptable and often overlooked as an addictive substance. However, cannabis is addictive and can affect a person’s health and relationships. We treat cannabis addiction by identifying the root cause of cannabis use and equipping our clients with healthier coping strategies.

Cocaine Addiction

Cocaine is a potent and highly addictive stimulant drug obtained from the coca plant. It is snorted or injected and produces a powerful euphoria lasting a few minutes to an hour. Our inpatient cocaine addiction treatment starts with getting all traces of the substance out of the client’s system and developing client-oriented strategies for living without cocaine and dealing with triggers.

Crack Addiction

Crack is a faster-acting and more addictive derivative of cocaine that is either smoked or snorted. The effects of crack are more intense and do not last long, making addiction easier. Our inpatient treatment strategies for crack addiction are similar to those of cocaine; client-oriented and aimed at helping the patient learn to live without crack.

What Can You Expect from an Inpatient Program?

When you go in for an inpatient drug rehab, you should expect to live in the facility for at least 30 days while undergoing your treatment. The first thing that will happen is an interview or evaluation to determine the specifics of your situation, which will help in preparing a customized treatment plan. You will have to answer questions about drug use habits, your relationships, and your family situation. Even though it can be difficult, it’s important to provide honest answers to these questions to help your evaluators develop an accurate treatment plan.

Detoxification is the next stage after your evaluation. In detox, your body is rid of all traces of the addictive substance to prepare you for your therapy sessions. The detox process may also involve using medications to help you handle withdrawal symptoms if they become severe. After detox, you’ll participate in individual or group therapy, family counseling, support programs, social tasks, and other activities required for your recovery as outlined in your treatment plan.

What Would a Typical Day In an Inpatient Treatment Look Like?

Inpatient rehab centers are structured facilities where patients follow routines to minimize stress and the number of daily decisions they need to make. This way, they develop consistency that makes their recovery process easier. A typical day in an inpatient treatment facility varies for every patient depending on their personal circumstances and treatment plan. However, most inpatient centers offer similar activities.

Residents wake up at a set time each morning and have a healthy breakfast. Some may receive medications for withdrawal symptoms or co-occurring mental issues before attending their first session. Other programs may involve morning exercises, meditation, or yoga for relaxation. Morning sessions may involve individual or group counseling with a therapist, after which residents take a break to reflect, practice, or document what they’ve learnt.

After lunch, residents may continue their treatment with individual therapy, light exercise, counseling, or participate in an educational activity that emphasizes the need for sobriety. They may also enjoy some free time to pray, meditate, chat, or do whatever they deem fit.

There’s dinner in the evening, followed by another group or support session where participants reflect on progress made. They get time to prepare for bed and are encouraged to get sufficient sleep. For a more in-depth information on the topic, take a look at our guide on what inpatient rehab is usually like.

What are the Benefits of an Inpatient Treatment Program?

Inpatient addiction treatment has the highest success rate of any drug rehab program. The benefits of this type of program include:

  • Direct and focused treatment of addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders
  • Freedom from distraction or outside influences that may impede the recovery process
  • Safe and serene resort-like environments that promote recovery
  • Round-the-clock medical supervision that helps to manage withdrawal symptoms safely

Frequently asked questions

What should I bring with me?

The most important thing to bring to inpatient drug rehab is a desire to get better. But for the day-to-day, we recommend multiple changes of comfortable clothes, including shoes (we do have activities that include yoga, a pool, and a full gym), toothbrushes and toiletries, and any medication prescribed by your physician, which will be presented at your intake. For other comforts, because your family can visit on the weekends, you can always discuss with your counselor what they can bring when they visit.

Can I have visitors while I am in rehab?

Yes! We know that family support is critical for clients’ ongoing success in an inpatient program, so we encourage family visitation every Saturday and Sunday.

Can I have my smartphone with me?

We do not allow daily use of personal electronics at our inpatient treatment center so clients can focus wholly on their treatment and health. All electronic devices are securely locked in storage, but we permit access to retrieve family contacts. However, our house phone and email access are available to each client daily.

How long is the treatment for?

The duration of inpatient addiction treatment is based on the needs of each individual. However, the length of treatment is usually 30 days but can be extended based on a client’s requirements.

Do I need a doctor’s referral? What is the process of entering the program?

A doctor’s referral is not needed to attend Canadian Centre for Addictions’s inpatient addiction treatment. You only need to call us and speak to one of our admissions specialists to discuss the best treatment for you or your loved one.

What is the best form of treatment for addiction?

The best form of treatment for addiction is one that is tailored to meet the specific needs of the individual. It usually involves a combination of therapy, medications, support, counseling, and aftercare.

Is addiction recovery lifelong?

Addiction recovery is a lifelong process that requires patience and discipline. A person who has fully recovered from addiction needs to learn how to avoid triggers and behavioral patterns that led to the addiction in the first place.

Can you get rid of an addiction on your own?

Addiction is a brain disease that requires professional medical intervention. However, many people recover from addiction without help. It’s possible but dangerous to quit an addiction on your own due to potentially harmful withdrawal symptoms. The best way to get rid of an addiction is under the guidance of a professional.
