Inpatient Treatment

Inpatient treatment refers to the residential stay at a rehabilitation center for those addicted to alcohol and other narcotic substances. Inpatient treatment, also known as residential treatment, involves staying at a facility specifically designed to provide comprehensive care and support for individuals battling addiction. During your time at the rehab center, you will live onsite, away from any external triggers or influences that may hinder your recovery.

One of the primary goals of inpatient treatment is to offer a structured and controlled environment. By immersing yourself in this therapeutic setting, you can focus solely on your recovery without distractions or temptations. Inpatient treatment programs generally last around 28 days but the duration may vary depending on individual needs.

These programs provide a range of evidence-based therapies and interventions to address the physical, psychological and emotional aspects of addiction. Medical professionals and addiction specialists are available at all times to support and guide you through the recovery process.

Connect Confidentially

Inpatient treatment typically includes individual therapy sessions, group therapy and educational workshops to help you understand the root causes of your addiction and develop healthier coping mechanisms. Additionally, holistic approaches like art therapy, yoga and mindfulness exercises may be incorporated to promote overall well-being.

While in residential treatment, you will also benefit from a structured daily routine. This routine often includes set meal times, exercise and communal activities to create a sense of community and promote healthy habits. Importantly, inpatient treatment provides a safe space for you to connect with peers who are also on their recovery process, creating a support system that can last long after rehab.

It is key to note that inpatient treatment has a long history in the field of addiction recovery. Over time, treatment approaches have evolved to become more personalised and tailored to individual needs. Today, many rehab centers offer specialised inpatient programs to address specific substances or co-occurring mental health disorders that often accompany addiction.


Inpatient rehab programs allow patients to focus on their recovery in a new environment and provide comprehensive support for individuals. Get help from qualified counsellors.
