Making the decision to seek professional treatment for your addiction is an important and necessary first step on the road to recovery. However, things can quickly become complicated when you realize you have a host of recovery centers to choose from. Many facilities are defined as either inpatient rehab, implying that all patients live at the facility, or outpatient rehab, which allows patients to live home while they recover. Which one is right for you?
While both inpatient and outpatient rehab help individuals in overcoming their addictions and equipping them with the therapies and tools they need to live healthier lives in recovery, there are some slight variations between the two. Our team at The Nestled Recovery Center is happy to walk you through the many benefits of inpatient rehab so you can determine which option is right for you – however, we also recommend you give us a call beforehand so our clinicians can assess your condition and offer you an expert opinion.
Inpatient rehab may be the best option for you if:
- Your addiction is severe: Individuals who ask for help before their addictions worsen are generally able to recover in outpatient programs, but if your addiction is long-term and/or severe, you may benefit from inpatient rehab. By staying with us, you can get the 24/7 care you need from medical professionals who understand what you’re going through. If you’re also experiencing mental health issues, inpatient rehab can give you a safe space to rest.
- You require medical detox services: If you need to go through detoxification, doing it alone can be dangerous. Withdrawal symptoms vary from person to person, and if you attempt to go through the process by yourself, you may not be able to get the help you need if you experience symptoms like seizures. By checking into an inpatient facility that has detox services, you can begin healing while having your progress closely monitored by medical professionals who can help you at any time.
- You require structure: Many individuals with addiction have lost their sense of self-discipline and any kind of structure in their lives. Because inpatient rehab often involves highly structured treatment, from curfews to no-phone policies and more, patients can benefit from developing routines and challenging themselves.
- You need to get away from daily life: Life comes with distractions and temptations of all kinds, especially if you live in the city. By checking into an inpatient facility that is secluded, you can get away from all the noise and take this time to focus on yourself and your health. This might not be the best option if you have a family to take care of or children to raise, but if you’re able to put your responsibilities on hold, taking a pause to commit to sobriety can make a huge difference.
- You want to be surrounded by others like you: If you check into inpatient rehab, you’ll likely have a roommate or be surrounded by other patients who are going through the same struggles as you. This can be incredibly comforting, and many people who form friendships in rehab keep them for the rest of their lives.
It’s important to know that there is no one right way to recover. What might have worked for your coworker or neighbor, for instance, might not necessarily work for you. Choosing between inpatient and outpatient rehab is your decision and ultimately depends on your current situation and needs.
