Signs You Need an Inpatient Level of Care

Overcoming addiction for the long term requires the proper level of care. For some people, outpatient or virtual treatment is sufficient. However, some people may need an inpatient level of care to help them get started on the right foot. If you are struggling with a severe drug or alcohol addiction, there is no shame in seeking help from an inpatient rehab center. These programs will provide the additional structure and support you need to stay on track.

Whether you are looking for the convenience of virtual addiction treatment or need the more intensive structure of inpatient addiction treatment, Promises Brazos Valley has a program to meet your needs. Call us today at 979.426.0086 to schedule an assessment to determine if an inpatient level of care is the best option to kick off your recovery.

What Is Inpatient Addiction Treatment?

Inpatient addiction treatment offers the most intensive type of treatment. You stay at the treatment center and receive around-the-clock care. Most inpatient treatment programs last 30 to 90 days, although some can last longer if necessary. Inpatient addiction treatment provides the safest and most secure environment for people needing the maximum level of structure and support to get through withdrawal symptoms and cravings without relapsing.

Do You Need an Inpatient Treatment Program?

Inpatient addiction treatment requires the most time and commitment of all addiction treatment programs. However, it can be a necessary component to help you avoid triggers and temptations early in your recovery. Here are some signs that you may require an inpatient level of care:

  • You are unable to quit using drugs or alcohol on your own. If you have tried to quit many times without success, you may benefit from the structure and support provided by an inpatient treatment program. Being in a safe, structured environment removes the temptation of drugs or alcohol and surrounds you with staff to support you 24/7.
  • You have been in rehab before but still cannot abstain from substance use. If you have tried outpatient treatment before and relapsed, you may think treatment will not work for you. However, it may simply be a matter of needing more intensive treatment, such as an inpatient treatment program. 
  • You want to cut back on drug or alcohol use but cannot. If you try to moderate your substance use, you may find that everyday stresses get in the way of your efforts. Once you have a bad day at work or start worrying about money, you may reach for comfort through self-medication. Inpatient addiction treatment lets you escape everyday life for a while in an environment free of substances.
  • You have lost your job because of substance use. Getting fired for showing up to work under the influence, being late, or calling out sick frequently because of substance use is a sign that addiction is a serious problem in your life. Losing your job may also trigger you to fall deeper into addiction.
  • You have gotten into legal trouble due to substance use. You may be stuck in a downward spiral if you have been arrested for drug- or alcohol-related offenses. An inpatient treatment program can help nip it in the bud before things get worse.

One of the most important aspects of starting your recovery strong is surrounding yourself with people who support your efforts to quit drugs or alcohol. When you enroll in inpatient addiction treatment, you will have around-the-clock support from the staff and your peers in the program.
