What Is Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Treatment? Inpatient treatment, also referred to as residential treatment, provides the highest level of rehab services for patients diagnosed with alcohol or other drug addiction. Typically, inpatient drug rehab programs include medical detox and integrated mental health services. At Hazelden Betty Ford, inpatient treatment for substance abuse begins with our clinicians getting a good understanding of your specific situation. Our treatment team will evaluate your medical health, mental health and chemical use history in order to design an individualized drug and alcohol rehab plan for you. With your permission, our rehab staff may also talk with your family members and consult with professionals you might already be working with to address your needs and challenges. Because addiction is a disease that affects your body, mind and spirit, we bring a multidisciplinary team together to provide you with a holistic healing plan. Your licensed team members for residential treatment may include: Physicians Nurses Psychiatrists Psychologists Licensed marriage and family therapists Licensed addiction counselors Nutritionists Wellness and fitness specialists Continuing care coordinators Financial advocates Clinical case managers Our inpatient drug rehab programs are also gender-specific, which has been shown to help patients stay focused on the recovery process, explore sensitive issues in a safe and supportive environment, and strengthen trusting relationships with peers. How Does Detox Work? Detox is the first step in helping your brain and body heal from substance abuse. The detox process begins with evaluations by medical doctors and nurses to determine which, if any, medical interventions are needed. Detox is primarily a time to flush the chemicals from your body, which can be an uncomfortable experience without the right medical care to help ease discomfort and/or drug cravings. Hazelden Betty Ford medical staff will work with you to evaluate your level of discomfort and provide you with medications, if needed, to address any discomfort or cravings. During the detox process, you will be medically monitored 24/7 until medical staff determine you are stable enough to take part in rehab programming and activities. What Happens in Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab? Following detox, you will move to your residential treatment unit where you will meet your treatment peers and participate in rehab services and activities. At Hazelden Betty Ford treatment centers, inpatient drug rehab activities may include: Group therapy to address chemical health Individual chemical health assessments and therapy Integrated co-occurring mental health services with mental health practitioners (may include individual, group and family therapy) Individual mental health assessments and therapy Medical appointments Wellness and fitness activities Family program participation Nutritional assessment Spiritual care Educational and experiential workshops Continuing care planning Our drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs are based on science, evidence and our experience of what works best in helping people get sober and stay sober. Hazelden Betty Ford pioneered the field’s leading approach to addiction treatment and we continue to evolve and advance the use of evidence-based treatments in order to provide our patients with the best opportunity for lifelong recovery from substance use disorder. Some of the evidence-based treatments our clinicians use include: Acceptance Commitment Therapy Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Contingency Management/Motivational Incentives Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Interpersonal Therapy Medication-Assisted Therapies Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy Motivational Enhancement Therapy Motivational Interviewing Psychoeducational Groups Solution Focused Brief Therapy/Solution Focused Therapy Twelve Step Facilitation Inpatient addiction treatment focuses on stabilization and assessment of your health to ensure you are ready—physically, psychologically and emotionally—to learn about core recovery concepts and to begin practicing recovery principles.

People who benefit most from an inpatient level of addiction treatment typically fall into one of three categories: Individuals who are at a high risk of experiencing drug or alcohol withdrawal Individuals who have experienced a relapse Individuals who have tried a less intensive level of drug or alcohol treatment but were unable to stay sober Most patients who come to us for inpatient rehab also struggle with a co-occurring mental health condition, such as depression, anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), that needs to be addressed during addiction treatment. Another factor to consider in choosing between an inpatient and outpatient rehab center is whether you have a healthy and supportive home environment where your recovery will be a priority. If you do, outpatient treatment could be a good fit. Otherwise, a residential treatment program where you will have a built-in system of support will probably be the most effective option. A licensed addiction professional can help you weigh all of the different factors and determine the best level and type of treatment program to meet your needs. How Long Is Inpatient Alcohol Rehab? At Hazelden Betty Ford, your length of stay in inpatient alcohol or drug rehab will be based on your progress in meeting specific clinical milestones. Our clinical team will work with you and your family as well as your insurance provider to come up with the best timetable and plan for you. Just as addiction doesn’t happen in the course of a few weeks or months, it’s unrealistic to expect recovery to occur that quickly. As you discharge from inpatient treatment, you will receive recommendations for follow-up care and ongoing recovery support to strengthen your sobriety and reduce the risk of relapse. Like diabetes or hypertension, addiction is a chronic disease. Regaining your health means learning to manage your symptoms, first within the structure of an inpatient rehab program and eventually in your home environment where you are in charge of maintaining and strengthening your recovery. How Much Does Inpatient Addiction Treatment Cost? The cost of inpatient rehab programs depends on the treatment center selected, the level of clinical care recommended, and the length of time in treatment. The amount you pay will also depend on whether you’re able to access insurance benefits to help cover the cost or you’re paying out-of-pocket. Hazelden Betty Ford is in-network with most insurance carriers, and most of our patients use their health insurance benefits to help cover treatment costs. Insurance policies and benefits vary greatly, so it's important to check with your provider about coverage specifics in your case. As a nonprofit treatment center, the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation offers patient financial assistance funds as available, on a limited basis, to help offset the cost of addiction treatment for qualifying patients. How Do I Start the Admissions Process for Inpatient Rehab at Hazelden Betty Ford? Your first step is to call our Patient Access Team for a confidential phone assessment. You will talk with a recovery expert who will determine whether drug or alcohol treatment is needed and, if it is, will recommend the appropriate level of care and work with you to coordinate insurance benefits. If alcohol or drug addiction is not clearly indicated or if you’re not ready to commit to an inpatient stay, you can learn more about your situation and possible next steps by participating in one of our residential evaluation programs. Residential evaluations typically involve a four-day stay at one of our treatment centers where a number of screenings and assessments will help to identify your particular needs and challenges. Hazelden Betty Ford inpatient drug and alcohol programs are available at the following locations: Rancho Mirage, California; Center City and Plymouth, Minnesota; Naples, Florida and Newberg, Oregon.
