Residential & Inpatient Rehabilitation
Addiction requires professional treatment to achieve lifelong sobriety. Enrolling in immediate treatment is quintessentially the choice between fatally overdosing and learning how to reclaim one’s life and live prosperously.
Substance use disorders (SUDs) are volatile conditions rooted in unhealthy coping skills, undiagnosed mental health disorders, and latent traumas.
Upon diagnosis of drug addiction- or a substance abuse disorder, the next consideration is choosing a reputable, and accredited inpatient drug rehab facility. Often, inpatient treatment is referred to as residential drug rehabilitation and vice versa.
Many in need of treatment forgo enrolling into an inpatient drug rehab center because of the overwhelming fear of withdrawal. The process is frightening for most and foments an undue amount of anxiety. This stems in part from the stigma against seeking help for addiction treatment; this notion extends to receiving and seeking treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders.
These feelings are isolating and demoralizing.
Largely remaining untreated, the aforementioned barriers to recovery cost thousands their lives. Addiction is an entirely treatable disease with the correct care.
The surgeon General’s report on Facing Addiction in America found 1 in 7 Americans will struggle with substance abuse at some point in their lives.
One’s substance use disorder does not define their character or merit.
Addiction is a disease.
The same kindness and consideration shown to those with physical maladies must extend to those with substance use disorders. Lack of medical care and the neglect of societal psychoeducation exasperates treatment disparities throughout all socioeconomic brackets.
Medical care is the right to pursue happiness and live the fullest life possible.
What Is an Inpatient Drug Rehab Program?
Inpatient drug rehabilitation consists of 30-120+ days of intensive addiction treatment. Clients remain on-site and recover with their peers with a comprehensive treatment plan. Each treatment plan is specialized to each client’s individual needs.
Those who have suffered from an untreated substance use disorder for longer periods of time typically require longer in-house treatment. Those who have newly developed a substance use disorders may recover faster- but this is not always the case.
During the course of treatment clients undergo an evidence-based addiction treatment program surrounding cognitive behavioral therapy, recreational therapy, trauma-informed groups specific to sexual assault, LGBTQ+, domestic violcence and so on.
Recovery times are entirely unique to each individual. Emphasis should not be placed upon recovery time but effectiveness of treatment; measurable by managing emotions, changed behavior, overcoming cravings, and healthy inner dialogue.
Treatment focuses on the mind and body. Throughout treatment therapists may diagnose clients with mental health disorders previously unnoticed- potentially masked by one’s SUD. Inpatient treatment gets to the root of addiction, teaching clients how to remain sober and take control of their lives back from drugs.
Discovery Point Retreat’s approach is full-wellness; our inpatient rehab programs address the mind, body, and spiritual pursuits of total wellness. Clients undergo massive transformation, identifying triggers and disarming them with newly learned coping strategies.
Many enrolling into a residential treatment program often receive treatment outside of their hometown. It is quite common for those in recovery to relocate to a new state either temporarily for treatment, or permanently to begin sober life anew.
Avoiding common triggers for abuse, remaining far away from old environments of abuse, including other substance abusers is key during the first rung of rehabilitation and beyond.
Inpatient rehabilitation affords clients the safety of a 24 hour medically monitored facility.
At Discovery Point Retreat clients are protected in a controlled, substance-free environment, ensuring abstinence and continual psychological support and care.

Our facility boasts a range of evidence-based treatment programs, springboarding clients to rediscovering the joys, passions, and hopes of life addiction strips away.
Inpatient Medical Detoxification (Detox)
Before clients officially begin in-house treatment they must first complete a medical detox. Detox clears the body of one’s addictive substance of choice and induces withdrawal. The process lasts for ten to fourteen days, depending on the severity of symptoms.
The body becomes physically addictive to one’s substance of choice; many attempt to quit “cold turkey” on their own. This is a common pitfall well-intentioned substance users perish to as result of not having immediate access to medical care as withdrawal symptoms occur.
Withdrawal symptoms are potentially fatal. Each substance’s withdrawal symptoms vary, yet care is required for all of them. This includes medicine to ease withdrawal and care for mental health and medical conditions simultaneously.
During the process, medical professionals may check your blood pressure, heart rate, temperature, and breathing regularly. Therapy doesn’t begin until the next stage of treatment, although some clients may participate in group therapy if they are well enough to attend.

After completing detoxification, clients move onto the next phase of addiction treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy.
Here, clients explore any trauma and deep-rooted issues contributing to substance abuse. Be it childhood trauma or painful events one’s experienced, therapy teaches clients how to come to terms with harsh realities and begin rebuilding one’s life.
CBT is a psychological treatment with proven efficacy in the treatment of substance use disorders, inappropriate displays of anger and rage, debilitating anxiety, major depression depression, and personality disorders.
Cognitive behavioral therapy teaches clients to reflect on their thoughts and behaviors mindfully, allowing them to respond healthily to everyday and stress-inducing situations. CBT realigns cognitive processes and interpretations.
Clients gain new perspectives, challenging old fears, trepidations, and points of frustration with ease. With treatment begets new understanding of how to navigate normalcy while maintaining sobriety.
There are several types of cognitive-behavioral therapy including:
12-Steps for Alcohol Recovery in Residential Treatment
You have probably heard of Alcohol Anonymous’ 12-steps.
We have adapted the 12 step modality for those interested in faith-based alcohol treatment. The foundation of the 12-steps are to use group dynamics and self-improvement to seek out a better path to recovery and wellness.
The 12 step modality heralds a large emphasis on group treatment and cathartic expression of active addiction, laden trauma, the aftermath of tragedy, and the triumphs of recovery. Finding solidarity and camaraderie affords peer to peer companionship and teaches clients how to engage with others appropriately.
Many make lasting friendships for life, offering a helping hand during troubling times and laughter in the jovial rays of recovery.
The guiding principles of this program help clients achieve and maintain sobriety. It does so through accepting shortcomings, learning to trust a higher deity, and making amends with one’s past.
Recreational Therapy for Inpatient Rehabilitation Addiction Recovery
Recreational therapy is a unique treatment approach utilized by our rehabilitation centers. This modality focuses on reinvigorating life with one’s own passions, hobbies, and recreational activities. Therapy encourages clients to rediscover who they are after debilitating depression and the aftermath of recovering from addiction.

How Long Does It Last?
The length of inpatient rehab treatment depends on one’s needs and the severity of addiction.

At Discovery Point Retreat we have an intensive outpatient rehab program designed to navigate clients through returning to normalcy. The program includes developing life skills, pursuing a meaningful career or securing work, continuing one’s education, and addressing the common triggers of relapse in a tangible post-treatment environment.
What Will Inpatient Rehabilitation Cost Me?
Medicare and Medicaid provide coverage for substance abuse treatment because of the Affordable Care Act. The American Medical Association classifies substance addiction as a disease, as such, most public and private health insurance providers accept cover treatment.
However, the amount they cover for residential drug rehab varies.
We accept many common insurance plans. If you do not have coverage, explore medicare options for treatment. Treatment grants are also available online; one must be tenacious in checking for them as they appear.
They are typically not available for long.
For those who do not have insurance, there are other financial options to assist funding inpatient treatment. Discovery Point Retreat offers payment options and may have scholarships available for client use.
Those without coverage may contact Discovery Point Retreat to help secure medical coverage. Other options to explore include loans and healthcare based credit cards.
