Getting Started with Inpatient Rehab in Florida
What is Inpatient Rehab?
Typically following a detox program, Inpatient rehab, which is also often referred to as residential treatment, is where the bulk of the work of addiction is done. Inpatient rehab requires that individuals leave their personal home environment and live at their treatment facility for periods anywhere from 30 to 90 days.
During inpatient rehab, patients focus on various forms of education and therapy. The goals of this step in treatment are both numerous and varying in nature. Inpatient rehab will require patients to identify addiction triggers, understand where they come from, understand the mechanisms of addiction, learn how to cope with addiction triggers, form relationships with support staff and peers, prepare for the next steps in the journey of recovery, and of course, relax during downtime.
Who Should Attend Inpatient Rehab?
Choosing the right treatment program can be as important as the quality of the program. Despite boasting a great deal of benefits, Inpatient Rehab is not intended for everyone. When it comes to deciding if Inpatient rehab is the right program for an individual, several factors must be considered in combination. The more of these that apply, the better someone is suited for residential treatment.
Firstly, inpatient rehab is a great benefit to those individuals who are lacking a supportive home environment with healthy relationships. This is especially true for individuals who live in environments that increase their risks of substance use and addiction. Such environments make drug access more convenient. As such, individuals that live in these environments need to be relocated in order to focus on their recovery. However, this alone is not enough as sober living programs are made to target this issue.
Secondly, individuals who require detox treatment are very good candidates for inpatient treatment. It is not typically the case for an individual to finish detox and not enter a form of residential treatment. The period of treatment after detox can be a highly sensitive period and as such, treatment experts must capitalize and ensure that individuals are treated before the risk of relapse becomes too great.
Thirdly, individuals who have made attempts in the past to stop using substances and failed at these attempts are excellent candidates for inpatient rehab. For these individuals, the acceptance of the issue and motivation to solve it exists. The challenge becomes overcoming addiction, which is seldom done alone. This is exactly what inpatient rehab is made for.
Fourth, individuals who have tried other treatment programs, especially less intensive or less-structured programs and have not benefited from such programs should highly consider inpatient rehab. It was previously mentioned that inpatient rehab may be more than necessary for some individuals and that outpatient care would be more suitable. The inverse is also possible. Some individuals may require much more care and structure than what outpatient programs are designed to provide.
Benefits of Inpatient Rehab in Florida
The benefits of attending an inpatient rehab program in Florida are both numerous as well as varying in nature.
Guests of an inpatient rehab program can benefit from treatment that is specified for their particular substance addiction, the severity of their addiction, the presence of any co-occurring disorders, their specific causes of addiction as well as their triggers, and lastly coping with their specific environment.
Around-the-clock (24/7) Care and Support
Patients will always have medical support available from nurses in case of minor issues or serious medical emergencies. Additionally, counseling of many kinds, such as personal, relationship, or legal counseling is frequently available.
Community and Relationship Building
Residential treatment allows patients to build communities and mutually-supportive relationships that will be forever beneficial in their recovery. The relationship and community-building practices are facilitated through group meetings, events with guest speakers, alumni events, and more.
Life Skills Training and Education
Finally, patients can greatly benefit from learning life skills that will teach them to cope with addiction triggers, how to apply to jobs, how to write cover letters and resumes, how to prepare and participate in interviews, and how to build and sustain healthy relationships.

Services Offered in Inpatient Rehab
Firstly, among the many integral services offered within inpatient rehab, psychiatric treatments are among the most important. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) are among the most important and effective treatments provided.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, as the name suggests, places focus on thinking and behavioral patterns. This form of therapy focuses on amending thinking and behavioral patterns to align with more desirable outcomes. Often, people misbehave due to undesirable perceptions of the world and of the events around them which causally lead to undesirable behaviors.
CBT also places a great emphasis on how one’s thoughts and feelings affect each other. CBT is a well-tested form of therapy that has been supported time and again to be a highly effective form of treatment for addiction.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy, which is a specialized form of CBT, is another supported form of treatment for addiction. While essentially being very similar to CBT, DBT places further emphasis on emotional and social factors.
