Sometimes a person struggling with drug or alcohol addiction needs to be isolated from the outside world so they can truly focus on recovery. Inpatient rehab, also commonly referred to as residential treatment, allows an individual to escape from the distractions of everyday life while their brain and body adapt to sobriety. The inpatient rehab treatment offered by Landmark Recovery of Knoxville, includes individual and group therapy options as well as family therapy and various recreational activities and support meetings to teach residents how to begin a path towards living beyond addiction.
Inpatient rehab is what often comes to mind when you picture “rehab.” It provides the opportunity for structure and learning to be integrated into an individual’s daily routine. On average, a patient will spend about a month (30-35 days) as a resident in an addiction treatment program. Sometimes, a patient must first go through medical detox before entering inpatient rehab, which is why the length of stay varies from person to person.
During inpatient rehab at Landmark Recovery of Knoxville, our patients are given a structured schedule so they can maintain a daily routine and keep themselves on track. We offer individual counseling, along with group and family therapy plus set meal times, recreational activities, and scheduled support meetings for our residents. Our patients find themselves immersed in a supportive environment with other people who are committed to stopping the cycle of addiction and starting their recovery journey.
While the process of inpatient rehab may vary from place to place, the goal is always the same – to help patients regain control of their lives and experience a successful recovery from addiction. A safe, structured environment without the triggers and temptations to use drugs or alcohol provides patients with the tools to adapt to a life of sobriety before reentering the outside world. We help people heal, and address any negative influences that could lead someone off the path to recovery.
The steps to enrolling in an inpatient drug and alcohol rehab program are similar amongst most addiction treatment centers.
Step 1: Admission
Admission is the first step in inpatient rehab. At Landmark Recovery, the patient – or their loved one – will contact our admissions team and speak to a representative who will ensure they are admitted to their treatment center properly and that all questions are answered.
Step 2: Intake
When a patient enters the treatment center, they begin the intake process. Basic information about the patient is gathered at this time. Our staff provides reassurance that drug rehab can help them regain control of their life. Any forbidden items are confiscated for the safety and wellbeing of the patient, the facility’s staff and other residents.
Step 3: Assessment
Each patient is assessed individually by a physician to determine which treatment methods will best benefit them in their recovery. Biographical information is also obtained to help create a profile for therapists.
Step 4: Detox
Before enrolling in inpatient treatment, patients may be asked to undergo medical detox, during which they withdraw from their substance under close medical supervision. Medical detox is intended to reduce the risk of physical harm to an individual from the effects of quitting drugs or alcohol after using for a long period of time.
Step 5: Inpatient Care
Patients normally stay in Landmark Recovery’s residential treatment program for 30-45 days. During residential treatment, our patients follow a daily routine and are given multiple methods of group therapy, individual therapy, and family therapy as well as recreational time. When a patient completes treatment, they are provided with continuing support and resources to prevent relapse.
Landmark Recovery of Knoxville is an addiction treatment center in Seymour, TN, located off US-441S and less than half an hour away from the University of Tennessee Knoxville campus. In addition to inpatient rehab, Landmark Recovery of Knoxville also offers medical detoxing, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient (IOP) treatment.
So, what is the difference in processes between inpatient rehab and outpatient rehab?
Inpatient rehab is residential treatment, requiring a patient to check themselves into an addiction treatment center for an extended period of time. Intensive outpatient (IOP) treatment, however, is based outside of a treatment center, allowing an individual to stay in housing of their choice. Intensive outpatient rehab can involve medication-assisted treatment and various forms of counseling. It is often used to treat milder cases of addiction.
