ORC’s Inpatient Drug Rehab Program

Our inpatient drug rehab program offers inpatient treatment (also called residential treatment). That means you live at our treatment center where medical, clinical, and psychiatric staff provide 24/7 care and supervision. 

Our program’s safe, structured environment helps you avoid triggers (people, places, or other things that make you want to abuse drugs). It also gives you immediate access to doctors and nurses in case of any medical emergencies.

Our inpatient rehab program can benefit anyone. However, it’s particularly helpful for people who have moderate-to-severe addictions or co-occurring mental health conditions (such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, or schizophrenia).

What Happens When You Enter Our Inpatient Drug Rehab Program?

When you enter the program at ORC, a team of medical professionals will assess your needs and create your personalized treatment plan. Our team will consider personal factors such as:

  • the severity of your addiction
  • whether you have received addiction treatment in the past
  • your physical and mental health

If you have any co-occurring mental health conditions, your treatment plan will likely include dual diagnosis treatment. This type of treatment addresses addiction that occurs alongside other mental health conditions. 

Treating all of your conditions at once significantly reduces your risk of relapse. 

Your treatment plan will also include the length of your stay. Our inpatient program is likely to last somewhere between 14 and 30 days, depending on your needs.

In addition, the plan will outline which specific treatments you will receive.

Inpatient Treatment Services At ORC

Our inpatient drug and alcohol rehab programs offer the following treatment services:

Medical Detoxification

When you regularly abuse a drug, you will likely become physically dependent on it. That means your body will start requiring the drug to function normally. 

When you stop using it, you may experience unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms vary depending on your body and the drug, but they often include anxiety, sweating, and trouble sleeping. 

Withdrawal symptoms cause many people to relapse. That’s why our addiction treatment program starts with medical detox, a short-term program that includes medical support and supervision. 

During our detox program, health care providers will help you stop using drugs slowly, as stopping too suddenly can make your withdrawal symptoms more severe. 

You may also be given medications, such as anti-anxiety medications or sleep aids, to ease certain withdrawal symptoms. Finally, you’ll receive daily monitoring and evaluation for post-acute withdrawal syndrome (PAWS).

Behavioral Therapy

While medical detox addresses the physical side of addiction, therapy addresses the psychological side. More specifically, therapy can help you:

  • develop healthy coping skills to manage drug cravings and other uncomfortable experiences
  • treat any underlying mental health concerns that made you want to abuse drugs in the first place 
  • resolve personal conflicts related to your drug abuse and addiction

The types of therapy you receive in our residential treatment program are designed to help you achieve long-term recovery, including:

  • cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT)
  • motivational interviewing (MI)
  • group therapy
  • family therapy

Medication-Assisted Treatment

If you live with opioid or alcohol addiction, your treatment plan may include medication-assisted treatment (MAT). That means your treatment providers will coordinate medication prescriptions and administrations to ease cravings and withdrawal symptoms. 

Medications used to help treat opioid addiction include:

  • buprenorphine, which can reduce opioid cravings
  • methadone, which can reduce opioid cravings and withdrawal symptoms
  • naltrexone, which discourages opioid abuse by blocking the pleasant effects of opioids 

Medications used to help treat alcohol abuse and addiction include:

  • acamprosate, which can reduce alcohol cravings
  • disulfiram, which discourages alcohol use by causing unpleasant side effects (including nausea, headache, and chest pain) when you drink alcohol
  • naltrexone, which discourages alcohol use by blocking the pleasant effects of alcohol

Wellness Activities

Throughout the addiction recovery process, it’s important to take care of your mental health. That’s why we offer activities that boost your sense of well-being and promote healthy socialization. 

The activities available to you at ORC are documented in our Monthly Activities Calendar, and can include:

  • arts and crafts
  • exercise classes
  • game nights
  • movie nights

These activities can help you destress between therapy sessions. They can also show you how to have fun and enjoy yourself without drugs. 

Aftercare Planning

Before you leave our rehab center, you and your treatment team will work together to create an aftercare plan. This plan will include interventions designed to reduce your risk of relapse. Depending on your needs, these interventions may include:

  • ongoing therapy
  • support groups
  • treatment for any co-occurring disorders
  • assistance with employment, education, or sober-living housing
  • case management

In addition, your treatment team may suggest that you transition to an outpatient treatment program. Intensive outpatient programs allow you to live at home while strengthening the skills you learned during inpatient treatment.
