What Is Inpatient or Residential Treatment?

While the work of recovery is a lifelong effort, many of the new, healthy habits that keep people on the path to success are formed during residential treatment. Patients in this stage of rehabilitation live at The Recovery Village Columbus Drug and Alcohol Rehab full time. There, they begin to learn the coping skills needed to overcome substance use disorders and move on to less restricted levels of care, including partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs.

Residential treatment is a critical step on the path to recovery. By achieving a healthy distance from destructive influences, patients gradually begin to shed the harmful people, thought patterns and perceptions that fuel their addictions. From there, they can reimagine a new life free from the grips of drug or alcohol dependence. Our facility’s caring nurses, physicians, psychiatrists and addiction counselors are available around the clock to help patients through every stage of this transformative process.

Who Needs Residential Treatment?

After successfully overcoming the difficult detoxification period, residents can finally begin the rewarding work of recovery in residential treatment.

An ideal candidate for residential treatment has:

  • Completed the medical detox process
  • Difficulty stopping drug or alcohol use
  • The desire to overcome an addiction to drugs or alcohol

What to Expect During Inpatient Drug Rehab

Following medical detox, the next step in the rehabilitation process is residential treatment. Also referred to as inpatient care, this intensive stage of recovery focuses on defining each patient’s treatment goals and building the skills necessary to achieve them.

It is a simple fact that the places and people associated with an addict’s substance abuse can trigger intense cravings. During the residential treatment process, patients stay in our Ohio facility on a full-time basis to avoid the environmental influences that could lead to relapse. Here, people work through their recovery in peace with the help of peers and professionals committed to sobriety.

Because we believe inward reflection and understanding are key to lasting change, individual and group therapy sessions are the cornerstones of most residential substance abuse treatment plans. During individual therapy sessions, clients are given the opportunity to explore the roots of their addiction, address co-occurring disorders, assess their progress on individual goals and move closer to the change they desire. In group therapy, patients are reminded of the common struggles they share with fellow residents. This supportive environment fosters closeness among peers and helps lay the foundations of empathy and self-acceptance necessary for recovery.

Topics discussed during individual and group therapy may include patterns of substance abuse, experiences with grief and loss, sexuality, trauma survival, self-esteem, family patterns, assertiveness and interpersonal relationships. Counselors incorporate other holistic and evidence-based methods of treatment into these therapeutic sessions to further set patients up for success.

Much of the work of recovery is creating a new, balanced life without drugs or alcohol. At The Recovery Village Columbus, we make this transition easier by providing patients with access to recreational activities that promote health and well-being, including yoga, art, fitness and sports.

The goal of residential treatment is to plant seeds of wellness and health during the delicate period following medical detox. The Recovery Village Columbus can help you complete this stage of rehabilitation safely and successfully with:

  • 24-hour monitoring
  • Comfortable accommodations
  • Individual therapy sessions
  • Group therapy sessions
  • Individualized medication management
  • Recreational therapy
  • Three nutritious, well-balanced meals a day

Once patients have developed essential coping skills to curb their cravings, they usually continue on to a partial hospitalization program (PHP). Here, they begin the gradual transition out of full-time treatment and learn more about the skills they will need to continue recovery outside of the rehab facility.

Why Consider Inpatient or Residential Treatment?

The period after detoxification is a fragile time for many individuals with substance use disorders. Our residential treatment program at The Recovery Village can lend you the support you need to stay focused on getting better during this turbulent stage of your recovery. With this in mind, here are a few reasons you might want to enroll in a residential treatment program:

  • You struggle with intense cravings. Even after you’ve successfully completed the detoxification process, the physical and psychological temptations of substance use are still difficult to resist.
  • You desire a structured treatment setting. The regimented, controlled setting of residential treatment can provide you with the stability needed to develop lifelong, healthy habits.
  • You want to understand the roots of your addiction. Our talented counselors, psychologists and counselors can help you better understand the complex causes of your substance use disorder.
  • You need separation from your triggers to focus on recovery. Continuing on the path to health can be particularly challenging if you are near the people and places associated with your past substance misuse.

Your Recovery Is Possible with Residential Treatment

The right treatment during the beginning stages of your recovery is the key to transitioning to maintaining sobriety in everyday life. At The Recovery Village, our experienced staff of caring professionals give you the tools to carve out a new, addiction-free life.

I had an amazing time, came in unaware of my addiction and went on a beautiful journey of discovering my sober self, the other clients taught me so much outside of the classes that provided copious coping skills and the counselors were always on top of how I was feeling and what was on my mind and ways to deactivate overwhelming situations so I could learn how to do it on my own, this will be a long road of recovery but it began here, sometimes things went a lil sideways but it always came back on track with a million helping hands, I was never afraid to ask for help, and it is like a microcosm of the world in here and how to deal with it, I've processed a lot of trauma with the help of my therapist and others, EMDR and meditation are amazing, this place is truly what you make it and I've had an amazing experience, don't be afraid to reach out and ask for help!❤️

Counselors are great ! But the medical staff is a joke. Had paperwork sent over for fmla/disability. Left the facility and the paperwork was never filled out. Tried to reach out to the doctors several times, no response. Terrible customer service.
