Recognizing Alcohol Addiction
Have your loved ones been bringing up your drinking or asking you to stop drinking? Are you noticing changes in your body, your behaviors, and your overall well-being due to alcohol? Have you experienced alcohol poisoning yet continue binge drinking the next weekend? There are many signs you need inpatient alcohol detox and rehab or outpatient treatment from a safe and accredited rehab facility. These include:
- Drinking in the morning, drinking alone, or feeling guilty about drinking
- Craving alcohol and having withdrawal symptoms without it
- Prioritizing drinking over your responsibilities, interests, and other people’s needs
- Continuing to drink even when it causes health, money, and relationship problems
Who Will Benefit Most From Inpatient Rehab
The people who will benefit most from inpatient treatment for alcohol use disorder include anybody who:
- Is still feeling withdrawal symptoms after detox
- Is getting treatments for other substances at the same time as alcohol addiction treatments
- Is working through dual diagnosis mental health treatment for a co-occurring mental illness along with alcohol addiction treatments
- Does not have a supportive, safe and sober-friendly place to live during drug or alcohol rehab
- Needs extra medical care or 24-hour medical oversight due to health issues caused by alcohol or drug use
- Does not feel ready to return home after detoxing, or who feels they need extra time and support from professional doctors, nurses, therapists, and other care providers
How Inpatient Rehab Works
When you come to our rehab center’s inpatient rehabilitation program, you will live inside the residential treatment center’s walls 24 hours a day for the full span of your treatment plan, usually 30 to 90 days. You will live on our tranquil 7.5 acre property, staying in a clean and modern room that has ample storage, a private bathroom, a comfortable bed, and your own TV with movie access.
On a typical day, you will wake up in the morning, have a full schedule of daily activities, therapy, groups, holistic treatments, inpatient mental health care, life skills programs, relapse prevention programs and more. All care is provided by our caring and nonjudgmental staff, all of whom are dedicated to helping you find and heal the underlying social, emotional, psychological, physical and spiritual reasons behind your addiction, and providing you with the recovery skills you will need once you leave inpatient alcohol rehab. Once your day of inpatient care, therapy, and hard work is complete, you can join us and the other guests in the common areas to hang out, play basketball, or spend time on your own.
Inpatient vs Outpatient Rehab
Inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is one of several levels of care offered at Serenity Oaks. We also have outpatient programs including the intensive outpatient program and our partial hospitalization programs. When considering inpatient vs. outpatient rehab, it is important to be honest with yourself.
One of the benefits of inpatient rehab is that you will be removed from the temptations of drinking, and you will be away from the people and places that may trigger a relapse, whereas when you are in outpatient rehab you need to take full responsibility for your actions every single day.
Even a partial hospitalization treatment plan allows you to go home every evening, giving you plenty of time on your own. If you have good support at home (or move into a sober living home), are not actively craving alcohol or feeling withdrawal symptoms, and believe you will be able to stick to your rehab plan and avoid drinking on your own, you may be a candidate for our outpatient programs.
