How Does Inpatient Addiction Treatment Work?
Inpatient or residential addiction treatment is often the first level of rehab care recommended for patients after medical detox from drugs or alcohol. Because clients live on-site and have 24/7 access to clinical care, inpatient rehab is one of the most intensive and structured addiction treatment programs available.
Upon admission to our Lafayette, New Jersey inpatient rehab facility, our staff assesses each patient to determine the appropriate course of addiction treatment and tailor a recovery program to meet their unique needs.
At Sunrise House, the goal of our inpatient drug and alcohol rehab program is to address the various aspects of a person’s life that underlie addiction. Our research-based curriculum is designed to help participants stop the cycle of compulsive drug or alcohol use by re-evaluating negative thought and behavior patterns, while developing the more positive and useful ones required to get and stay sober.1
Our inpatient drug and alcohol rehab facility in New Jersey takes place in a non-hospital rehab environment with doctors, nurses, counselors, and other specialists on-staff and ready to assist with any medical concerns. Patients at our Lafayette, NJ rehab facility participate in a rigorous daily schedule of group and individual sessions. Programming may incorporate various therapies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and music therapy, and involve topics like:
- Relapse prevention
- Coping skills
- Anger management
Our inpatient drug and alcohol rehab facility is also able to offer some forms of medication for addiction treatment (MAT).2 This is carefully evaluated on a case-by-case basis, as MAT may not be appropriate for everyone. At Sunrise House, we specialize in the treatment of co-occurring disorders, which is when a person suffers from a mental health issue (e.g., depression, anxiety, PTSD) and a substance use disorder at the same time. Evidence suggests that in order for treatment to be effective, both conditions should be addressed simultaneously.3 The presence of a co-occurring disorder is an example of a situation that could require MAT.
The recommended length of stay in an inpatient residential program varies based on a person’s needs. Depending on their history of substance use and severity of addiction, someone may prefer short-term medical detox programs, month-long inpatient rehab programs, or in some cases, 2-3 month addiction treatment programs.
As patients become ready to transition out of inpatient care, the staff at our Lafayette, New Jersey addiction treatment facility will help ensure they receive the continued support needed to sustain their recovery.
What Happens After Inpatient Addiction Treatment?
After someone leaves residential rehab, they may wish to extend their treatment through outpatient or aftercare services. Studies show that programs like these reduce the risk of relapse.1, 4
Another way to stay engaged in treatment is by moving into a sober living residence. At Sunrise House, we are in the works of opening Resolutions Franklin (coming soon!), a sober living community geared toward men. Resolutions Franklin will provide a safe and substance-free haven for program graduates who may not quite be ready to re-enter their daily lives.
People can also stay connected to the tools and relationships they’ve built in rehab through Sunrise House’s robust alumni program. Prior to discharge, our staff works with each participant to draft a rehab aftercare plan that will help them maintain their sobriety. These resources may include:
- 12-Step meetings or mutual support groups.
- Alumni coordinator check-ins.
- Weekly alumni meetings held at the facility.
- Our free Recovery App.
- Monthly medallion ceremonies.
Does Health Insurance Cover Inpatient Rehab for Addiction?
Although health insurance coverage is likely, the amount of addiction treatment covered will vary based on the individual insurance plan. Some plans may require members to stay in-network to qualify for reimbursement.6 Luckily, Sunrise House is in-network with many popular insurers in New Jersey, such as:
