Serenity Rehab Addiction Treatment
Everyone has different needs when it comes to seeking treatment for substance abuse, so each person should consider options specific to their needs. Inpatient programs offer some of the most intensive treatment to keep individuals focused on their goals over their urges. There are many components to a treatment program, and each element provides its own benefits.
Benefits of a Treatment Program
Overcoming a struggle with drug use can be challenging for any individual, but seeking care in a professional environment makes it much easier. In a treatment program, patients are offered additional tools, guidance, and assistance not available elsewhere. They can explore the various factors that led to their drug use and the methods to overcome it. Once treatment ends, clients can maintain contact with treatment professionals or stay involved in aftercare programs to keep them on the right path.
Inpatient treatment programs teach individuals how to cope with the stresses of life without relying on substance use. Inpatient treatment may last from one to three months on average, but it may take longer for some individuals. A benefit of this option is the chance to step away from everyday life to focus on overcoming the addiction.
Whether a client is enrolled in our inpatient program or our PHP (Partial Hospitalization Program) or the IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program), they can be assured of getting the exact level of care they need for their unique situation.
At Serenity, our PHP provides treatment five days per week for 6 hours per day. Patients remain on-site for treatment and are assessed daily according to ASAM standards and, as they progress, the frequency of treatment is reduced.
Inpatient facilities are also likely to offer additional services and treatment methods, and these may include personalized meals or religious observation. This treatment option provides care throughout the day, and this may involve helping those that need immediate attention to deal with urges. After inpatient treatment has concluded, the individual must stay involved in treatment aids to reduce the risk of relapsing upon returning to the outside world.
Intensive Outpatient Treatment
An intensive outpatient program (IOP) provides treatment that is briefer by comparison. At Serenity, our IOP offers 9 to 20 hours of treatment per week. Another advantage of outpatient treatment is that it is not likely to disrupt the healthy patterns of the individual’s life. They can quickly return to their affairs considering an outpatient program may be just a few weeks to over a month in duration. Some programs begin with inpatient treatment then graduate to outpatient. Because of the short time spent in treatment, individuals are encouraged to continue with aftercare programs to stay on track in daily life.
Individualized treatment helps key in on each person’s specific needs based on their addiction. It also helps focus on the goals they hope to achieve from their program. This treatment is beneficial for those individuals that have unique circumstances or cope better without others around. Because of the particular care, patients may also receive assistance with improving family relations, employment status or legal troubles. Individualized treatment focuses on short-term improvements in the behaviors that led to drug use, and it helps the patient develop strategies to avoid substance abuse and maintain sobriety.
Group Treatment Program at Serenity
There are also benefits to receiving parts of the treatment in group sessions. Patients can share everyday experiences and gain feedback to feel as though others are coping with the same issues. Group therapy helps provide social reinforcement to encourage lifestyle changes, and it can give each new perspectives of their struggle to become sober. Patients also get the opportunity to learn from others’ experiences to shape their lives in the future. When exchanging experiences in group treatment, individuals can create similar goals for their lives after a treatment program.
For many patients, the longer or more severe their substance use is, the longer they will need treatment. More severe use may require more intense treatment as well. Inpatient treatment provides a thorough environment to keep patients on track, but even after the program ends, follow-up care is essential to aiding successful recovery.
