Inpatient Treatment for Substance Abuse & Addiction

For individuals struggling with addiction in a world filled with triggers, comprehensive inpatient care offers a supportive environment with a clear path to healing. In a residential facility, professional addiction specialists create personalized treatment plans designed to help patients overcome substance abuse.

At Beachway, mixed therapeutic modalities address both the psychological and physical aspects of addiction recovery. The goal is inpatient substance abuse treatment that assists every patient in their fight to achieve long-term sobriety and nurture overall mental health and wellness, both during treatment and beyond.


Understanding Inpatient Substance Abuse Treatment

Outpatient substance abuse treatment is sometimes favored because it appears to offer greater flexibility. Patients can stay in school or continue to work while they meet with therapists and attend support groups. But trying to balance recovery and everyday life can be difficult, especially for someone with a history of severe substance abuse or a patient whose home environment or community dynamics aren’t conducive to sobriety.

Inpatient treatment allows patients to focus solely on their personal well-being while under consistent holistic supervision. Away from external stressors and with the added benefit of a structured care environment, individuals can detox, trial medications, begin therapy, and potentially find success beyond what was possible in the past via other rehabilitation methods.


Effective Treatment Approaches

Beachway anchors its inpatient setting using evidence-based practices, such as:

  • Holistic Therapy
  • Trauma-Focused Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
  • EMDR Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Solution-Focused Therapy

Some therapy sessions center on individual needs. Others might occur in a group setting or involve family members. Specialized interventions are also scheduled to help get to the root cause of a patient’s addiction.

These multifaceted therapeutic approaches come together to build a framework that embraces individuality, respect, and compassion.


Starting the Journey: The First Step in Treatment

Committing to substance abuse inpatient treatment is a huge step, but it’s not the first step toward recovery. Sobriety begins when an individual acknowledges they have a problem and expresses willingness to seek help. These points are crucial and lead to another important step: admission.

Those joining Beachway’s Inpatient Substance Abuse Treatment program will go through a detailed admission process that includes:

  • A full medical history
  • Discussing insurance benefits and other payment arrangements
  • Arranging travel from the patient’s home to Beachway’s treatment facility
  • Arrival at Beachway and a warm welcome from our experienced team
  • Patient assessments and personalized care planning

Patterns of Drug Abuse

Whether someone’s wondering about their own substance abuse or looking to help a loved one, it can be helpful to understand what drug abuse looks like. Levels of functionality can differ from person to person, but there are some more common signs of addiction:

  • Feeling an intense urge to use the substance throughout the day
  • Inability to stop using the substance without assistance
  • Doing things under the influence of the substance they wouldn’t normally do
  • Needing increased amounts of the substance to keep getting the same “high”
  • Having trouble at home, school, or work due to substance use
  • Changes in behavior, especially when those changes negatively impact relationships and/or responsibilities

Being able to recognize those signs can open the door toward admitting there’s a problem and seeking professional support.

The Role of Structured Schedules and Therapeutic Activities

Life at Beachway includes a structured daily schedule that promotes engagement, encourages accountability, and facilitates emotional regulation. This three-pronged plan aims to prevent relapse by tackling addiction from every angle.

As residents go about their day, they’re anything but isolated. In fact, those in the inpatient program are part of a supportive community full of conversation, shared experiences, and collaborative opportunities.

The Role of Surrendering in Recovery

In addiction treatment, the concept of surrender means individuals need to accept their inability to control their addiction without help. Realizing the importance of surrender can kick start the healing process, and it’s revisited again and again as a part of treatment and recovery.

Therapies Unique to Inpatient Care

Inpatient treatment for drug addiction allows for more continuous clinician support. In particular, Beachway utilizes intensive therapy sessions and integrative approaches that work in a residential environment but wouldn’t be feasible in an outpatient setting. With no distractions and support on tap around the clock, patients have fewer barriers in place when it comes to processing challenging emotional issues.

Part of therapy is trial and error. Beachway has an expansive therapy portfolio, and its team is adept at determining which approaches work best for each patient.

Minimizing Triggers and Distractions in Inpatient Care

In the “outside world,” every phone call, email, work shift, school essay deadline, and social obligation can be both a distraction and a trigger. Beachway’s inpatient environment offers time away from that stress, and other needs, such as meals and laundry, are taken care of so patients never have to split their focus.

Addressing Trauma and Co-Occurring Disorders

Many people with a substance abuse disorder also have a co-occurring disorder, which is a mental health issue that occurs in tandem with drug abuse. This may lead to a dual diagnosis, such as substance abuse disorder and clinical depression or PTSD. In those cases, Beachway turns to specialized interventions and therapies that jointly address underlying trauma and mental health disorders.


Personalized Care and Treatment Planning

Beachway’s commitment to personalized care is evident in the way every treatment plan is uniquely tailored to each patient’s individual needs. Patient history, personal preferences, and recovery goals are all taken into account, and residents are encouraged to actively participate in every aspect of the decision-making process.

Transitioning Back to Community: Aftercare and Support

When it’s time for a patient to leave their residential substance abuse program, Beachway offers extensive transitional support. From case manager oversight to aftercare programs, such as life skills education and access to Beachway’s alumni network, every resource is chosen to ensure patients feel confident as they return to their lives and communities.
