Inpatient rehabilitation programs refer to services provided by residential centres, where patients stay in the centre for the duration of a specialist treatment program under professional guidance. It offers a convenient and safe environment, free from unsolicited distractions, where patients can concentrate fully on their recovery programs. They can also avoid feeling isolated and can redeem their self-value by interacting with empathic fellow patients.

We can help you with personalised advice and referrals to residential facilities for recovery from behaviour and substance use disorders.
Local support groups, medication, willpower and self-help projects can help with overcoming some disorders, but an inpatient rehab program is widely accepted as the preferred solution for severe behaviour and substance use disorders. Some people are, at first, reluctant to submit to residential treatment, but this attitude usually changes after the treatment starts and they conclude their stay with a positive outlook.
Most patients undergoing treatment in residential rehab centres suffer from behaviour and substance use disorders, with concurrent anxiety, depression and other emotional afflictions. These, in turn, usually stem from traumatic events that happened in the recent or distant past. Dysfunctional families, peer pressure, an obsessive or compulsive nature, and many other issues, contribute to the development of these disorders.
Some rehab centres accept adult and adolescent patients of all genders and persuasions and allow them to mingle in demarcated communal areas. Other centres only accept patients from specific sectors of society, based on criteria such as age, gender or faith. People in prominent career situations can attend executive centres from where they can maintain contact with their associates and projects during treatment.
Modern inpatient rehab programs
The length of stay in residential centres varies, depending on the gravity of disorders and the rate of progress. It typically lasts from 21 to 60 days, but can take longer. Because patients stay for a relatively long time and treatment methods differ, the choice of venue is important. One should obtain expert advice before settling on a particular inpatient facility.
Many new therapeutic techniques have been developed and tested in recent times and, with the current pace of technology, more refinements are constantly being introduced. Though some centres still offer older programs, most facilities have switched to modern, evidence-based modules. Many centres blend some of the proven older principles with the latest techniques. Inpatient treatment consists of group and individual therapy sessions.
Patients with severe injuries or withdrawal symptoms require medical intervention before therapeutic treatment can commence. This often involves hospitalisation, but some rehab centres offer dedicated in-house detoxification. Most centres have special arrangements with medical entities to attend to patients on certain days or in emergency situations.
Some people may not be able to attend inpatient treatment, due to illness or other restrictions. In such cases, specialist home care or outpatient services can be better options. When people resist residential treatment for invalid reasons, rehab centres often assist with interventions to obtain their cooperation.
The amenities at residential centres range from moderate to luxury levels. The level of amenities and quality of therapy determine the fees charged, but there are other factors that also influence it, such as management policies, location, travel expenses, foreign exchange rates, etc.
The cost of treatment may be irrelevant compared to the cost of living with a problem, including the consequences not measurable in monetary terms. However, the reality is that some do need more affordable solutions. It may be less comfortable, but the outcome can be just as successful.
