How To Choose An Inpatient Rehab

Roughly 21 million Americans suffer from an addiction, only “10% have attained treatment” attending either inpatient or outpatient facilities to access quality care. Moreover, some may feel intimidated by the idea of getting treatment and struggle with uncertainty in accessing facilities for change.

Choosing An Inpatient Rehab: How Inpatient Rehab Differs From Outpatient Rehab

Individuals seeking substance abuse recovery have the option to choose between inpatient or outpatient rehab. Both offer transformation through healing, with similar characteristics. Understanding what they both provide while understanding how they are different can help those seeking treatment make a choice. Inpatient rehab is when a person seeking recovery decides to stay “on campus” or in the facility. As a result of the quality of care, exposure to medical staff, ongoing emotional and mental support, and a lengthy program, such factors can be responsible for the higher success rates of inpatient rehab. Inpatient rehab usually spans between 30, 60, or 90 days depending on the treatment needs of the prospective patient.

Outpatient rehab differs in cost and allows the patient the flexibility of partial outpatient care. This means the patient can access treatment for a few hours on campus while balancing it with other commitments. While outpatient rehab benefits some, inpatient provides the needed hands-on care, along with the structured care patients would need to feel the needed support for recovery. Additionally, outpatient rehab can occur between 10 to 12 hours per week. Furthermore, outpatient rehab is ideal for someone suffering from mild addictions, versus inpatient rehab which is ideal for serious addictions.

Why Choose Inpatient Rehab?

Individuals suffering from substance abuse may feel baffled when considering where to go for treatment. Thankfully, individuals seeking treatment have several options they can consider and use that to make a decision. Inpatient rehab offers hands-on, around the clock care and support. Patients receive breakfast, lunch, and dinner at certain times of the day, with scheduled activities.

Some facilities allow family members to visit, providing much-needed support and comfort amidst the recovery process. Additionally, some facilities provide funding or unique payment options for some patients. Inquiring about amenities available can help someone make a focused decision, along with understanding the reputation of the facility. There is typically an aftercare program and post-rehab activities to ensure the patient is continuing to live a healthy life once they receive treatment. As a result of staying on campus and having access to certain amenities and care, inpatient treatment typically has a higher success rate of recovery when compared to outpatient rehab.

Empowered Choices: Knowing Your Needs And Preferences For Treatment

Acknowledging the addiction and deciding to get help takes much courage. Choosing an inpatient facility includes a lot of steps that involve research, a knowledge of preferences, awareness of recovery goals, awareness of treatment needs, and whether or not travel should be involved. Fortunately, professional treatment providers are available to guide future patients to make the choice ideal for them. If the idea of talking to a treatment professional makes you uncomfortable, consider writing a list of ideal rehab expectations and services, and what it is you or your loved one aspires to achieve. For example, consider questions or factors including:

  • Are there dietary restrictions?

  • Available amenities

  • What insurance does the facility take?

  • Are family members allowed on site?

  • Exploring the success rate of the facility

  • Finances or financial assistance

  • History/length of operation

  • Exploring the licenses and accreditations of the facility

  • The reputation of the facility

  • What specialties are available?

  • Examining the medications used for treatment

  • Examining the current specialists who are on-site

  • Available detox programs

  • How long does the program take?

  • What aftercare or post-rehab services are available?

All Things Considered: Examining The Staff And Their Qualifications

It is important to consider the credibility of the facility before choosing an inpatient rehab. Credible facilities can be found under the Joint Commission and another non-profit organization known as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. The prospective patient wants to ensure the facility in question is genuine. Additionally, it would be wise to research who works at the facility. For example, seeing a variety of licensed staff who specialize in specific practices can assure the prospective patient that the facility is not using staff members to cover too many bases. These can include, but are not limited to:

Secondly, looking out for professionally licensed staff with titles such as Licensed and Certified before their job title (i.e. Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Certified Addiction Counselor) can reveal quality professionals. This is vital in providing the patient with professional and knowledgeable care, deepening their recovery experience. Credible facilities can be found under the Joint Commission and another non-profit organization known as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. Lastly, factors like the length of program time, and whether or not travel is best for the individual patient can be very helpful in determining if the facility would be able to cater to you or your loved one’s needs.

Traveling Versus Staying Local For Inpatient Rehab

Location and the visual appeal of rehab is a major deciding factor in making a sound decision. Inpatient facilities can either be local or out of the city or state the patient resides in. Traveling for inpatient rehab can have benefits ranging from a deeper desire to follow through with treatment. Since traveling is a factor, fewer distractions are present.

Patients can concentrate on the new setting without being reminded of past sounds, reminders, or locations associated with trauma. As a result, the patient may thrive in such settings. On the other hand, if patients prefer local settings and value having access to family members, traveling may seem overwhelming. Additionally, costs differ based on local or distant rehab accommodations; understanding your budget can help define which location would be best.
