The groundwork for a successful recovery from addiction begins with a sober thought process, sound decision-making and healthy behaviors. For many who are now in recovery, these traits developed during the inpatient rehabilitation phase of treatment.

There are many inpatient rehabilitation centers in South Florida. The Recovery Village Palm Beach at Baptist Health can help you make informed decisions about your treatment and help you choose an inpatient rehabilitation program that is right for you.

What Is Inpatient Rehab?

Inpatient rehabilitation, often shortened to the phrase inpatient rehab, is a phase of drug and alcohol addiction treatment where clients stay at a facility for an extended time to focus on recovery.

Inpatient rehab usually follows medical detoxification, or detox, and is often followed by step-down programs like a partial hospitalization program or outpatient treatment, which offer less restrictive structure and greater independence. Inpatient rehab is often called residential treatment, as clients stay at a facility for several days or weeks.

In residential care, clients learn how to live without the influence or use of drugs and alcohol. To achieve this learning, clients receive intensive medical and psychiatric education and support, participate in daily individual and group therapies, and engage in enriching and nurturing physical activities.

Cost of Inpatient Rehab

The cost of an inpatient rehabilitation program varies, depending on the type, availability and quality of services offered. Typically, inpatient rehabilitation cost quotes are between $14,000 and $30,000, but these rates are only estimates and vary depending on the facility.

While there are relatively few studies on the costs of inpatient rehab, one 2009 study (which included government-sponsored inpatient programs) showed the average cost of inpatient rehabilitation for drug and alcohol addiction to be $11,000. However, inpatient rehab costs vary widely, ranging from $5,000 to upwards of $60,000.

To find out how much inpatient rehab costs at The Recovery Village Palm Beach at Baptist Health, call one of our representatives. The total cost of rehab for you will depend on several factors, including health insurance coverage. Our representatives can help you get a better idea of how much rehab would cost you or a loved one.

What Does Inpatient Rehab Include?

Inpatient rehabilitation for drug or alcohol addiction may include:

  • 24-hour access to medical and nursing care: Receiving around-the-clock care is important for people who are just beginning recovery.
  • Regular physician visits, including visits with a counselor or psychiatrist, if appropriate and desired: These contacts allow individuals in recovery to understand the impact of addiction on their bodies and minds, to devise management strategies for healing and to foster a sense of self-worth about their health.
  • Individual and group therapy: Here, recovering individuals can develop trusting, healthy relationships with their therapists, which can lead to important insights into the origins of addictive thinking and behavior. Therapy also allows clients to understand their vulnerabilities and strengths.
  • Nutritional support: During inpatient rehabilitation, healthy eating and activities are major points of emphasis. Therefore, nutritious meals are prepared on-site.
  • Recreational therapy: Art therapy, yoga and exercise are often significant components of the rehabilitative process. These activities help reaffirm a person’s sense of value and develop positive habits around self-care while retaining the protection and safety of the treatment setting.

Inpatient rehab offerings vary by the facility type, location and program structure. The most important aspects of inpatient rehab are high-quality medical support and counseling.

Who Should Seek Inpatient Rehab?

The best candidates for inpatient rehab have:

  • A history of difficulty with or of losing control around drugs or alcohol
  • Completed the medical detoxification process
  • Been actively looking for help with a substance use disorder

Offered Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab

Inpatient drug and alcohol rehab programs vary depending on several factors, including program length. Inpatient program lengths may range from 28-30 days to 60 days or 90 days. The appropriate length of stay depends on each client’s unique needs, but typically, a longer stay means a more well-rounded recovery.

  • 30-day inpatient rehab: Most 30-day inpatient programs focus on the management of withdrawal, interpersonal support through individual an group therapy and crafting an aftercare plan. Usually, 30-day programs are the most common and least expensive inpatient option as they are the shortest. However, a short program may not be beneficial for clients who have complicated addictions or need further support for co-occurring mental health conditions.
  • 60-day inpatient rehab: Programs that last for 60 days build upon the treatment of 30-day programs but may include more thorough medical support and mental health treatment. Sixty-day programs are usually more expensive than month-long programs as clients receive long-term support over two months.
  • 90-day inpatient rehab: Ideal for clients who have medical complications or who have experienced multiple relapses, 90-day programs offer continuous support and counseling over three months. While 90-day programs are more expensive than shorter ones, 90-day programs usually offer the most comprehensive treatment and support to set people up for long-term recovery.

Inpatient Drug Rehab Programs

Inpatient drug rehab programs focus on helping people heal from addictions to prescription or illicit drugs, like heroin, oxycodone, methamphetamine and Xanax, to name a few substances.

Because drug addiction usually has uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms, inpatient rehab helps mitigate withdrawal and cravings after detox is completed. Additionally, most inpatient drug rehab programs also include counseling to uncover the roots of addiction to prescription or illicit drugs and help people heal emotionally.

One primary feature of inpatient drug rehabilitation programs is that patients stay on-site for extended periods of time. This feature allows a person with an addiction to focus exclusively on recovery efforts without distraction, with discretion and in unity with other recovering people.

Inpatient Alcohol Rehab Programs

For people who struggle with alcohol addiction, inpatient rehab programs can be life-changing. Medical professionals and counselors can help mitigate any leftover withdrawal symptoms and alcohol cravings during inpatient care.

The pervasive effects of an alcohol use disorder are often best managed in an inpatient alcohol rehab program. Such programs can successfully manage potentially life-threatening alcohol withdrawal and help those whose thoughts and actions have been controlled by alcohol regain a sense of control over their lives.

Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

In the inpatient rehab setting, substance use disorders and coexisting mental health conditions can be treated simultaneously. This approach is known as co-occurring disorders treatment and is of critical importance.

Most people who have a drug or alcohol addiction meet criteria for a mental health condition, and many people with mental health issues are at risk for substance use disorders. Common co-occurring mental health conditions include depression and anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder and bipolar disorder.

Inpatient drug and alcohol rehab can help a person who has co-occurring disorders navigate a delicate and vulnerable time. Even after achieving some abstinence or recovery time, many people in early recovery are still ensnared by the same thought and behavior patterns that marked their addiction and must undergo intensive efforts to reshape those thoughts and actions. Inpatient drug rehabilitation can offer the structure, opportunities and modeling that facilitate the challenging work of reforming thoughts and behaviors that were once commandeered by addiction.
