What is an Inpatient Addiction Treatment Program?
An inpatient rehab program is a place where men can go to receive treatment for addiction in a residential setting. Men who seek treatment at The Last Resort will typically live at the center for 45 days. Some men stay longer, length of stay is determined by each individual’s specific needs. Factors that can affect the length of treatment include the severity of the addiction, any co-occurring mental health conditions, and whether the person has previously received rehab treatment.
Who is an Inpatient Program Designed For?
Many men wonder whether they need to commit to a residential treatment program instead of tackling their addiction alone. Yes, getting professional help is recommended. This is especially true if you are dealing with other issues, including:
- A co-occurring mental illness
- The effects of past trauma
- Dependence on multiple substances
- Family dysfunction
- Relationship problems
- PTSD from military service
- Legal issues caused by substance abuse
- Grief and loss
- A high-stress career
Drug or alcohol addiction doesn’t happen in a vacuum. All of the above factors can contribute to your substance use disorder. Unless they are analyzed and addressed, it is unlikely that you’ll be able to move forward. That process takes time, especially for men who aren’t used to opening up. A dual-diagnosis treatment facility provides dedicated time for this level of self-reflection.
The Differences Between Inpatient and Outpatient Rehab Centers
Inpatient rehab is what most people think of when they think of rehab. You check in, consult with a psychiatrist and other specialists, attend group and intensive individual therapy, and handle the physical side with detoxification and withdrawal. This can be an excellent option for people who need more structure in their recovery.
The goal of inpatient rehab for men is to provide a safe and supportive environment where patients can focus on their recovery without the distractions and temptations of everyday life.
Outpatient rehab, on the other hand, is a drug and alcohol rehab program where patients do not live at the treatment center. Instead, they come to the center for regularly scheduled therapy sessions and other treatment activities and then return home at the end of the day.
Outpatient programs can be a good option for individuals with a strong support system at home or who have already completed an inpatient drug treatment program and are looking for ongoing support to maintain their recovery.
Both inpatient and outpatient rehab can be effective in helping individuals with substance use disorder, and the best choice for an individual will depend on their specific needs and circumstances.
When Does a Man Need Inpatient Rehab For Substance Abuse?
There are several situations in which a man may benefit from inpatient rehab for substance abuse. Some signs that inpatient rehab may be necessary include:
- The addiction is severe: If a man’s substance abuse is severe and he is unable to stop using on his own, inpatient rehab provides the intensive support and structure he needs to overcome his addiction.
- There are co-occurring mental health conditions: If a man has both an addiction and a mental health disorder, such as depression or anxiety, inpatient rehab offers the comprehensive treatment he needs to address both issues.
- There have been failed attempts at recovery: If a man has previously tried to stop using substances but has been unable to do so, including unsuccessful experiences with intensive outpatient or partial hospitalization programs, inpatient rehab can provide the intensive support and structure needed to achieve lasting recovery.
- There is a lack of support at home: If a man’s home environment is not supportive of his recovery or if he does not have a strong network of sober support, an inpatient rehab center provides a safe and supportive environment where he can focus on his recovery. This can also apply to college students needing rehab due to the setting of a university.
The Benefits of a Men’s Only Residential Rehab Center
Men typically have different reasons and stressors for falling into addiction. The societal pressures on a man to “be manly” often create a situation where men have a hard time opening up – especially in the presence of the opposite sex.
By providing a single-gender environment, men can focus on their recovery and find support from other men with similar experiences and backgrounds. Some additional benefits of a residential rehab for men only are:
- Safe and supportive environment for men to focus on recovery
- Specialized treatment and therapy programs for men’s unique challenges and issues
- Sense of community and camaraderie among residents
- Higher staff-to-patient ratio for personalized support
- Recreational and therapeutic activities for men
- Structured and disciplined environment for healthy habits and routines
- Aftercare and support services to prevent relapse
Our dual diagnosis inpatient rehab programs provide men the intensive support and structure needed to overcome addiction and achieve lasting recovery.
