Frequently asked questions

Which method of alcohol rehab is the most effective?

Inpatient alcohol rehab is largely regarded as the most effective way of therapy for overcoming alcoholism and maintaining long-term sobriety, regardless of the degree of the addiction.

What factors influence your decision to seek inpatient alcohol treatment?

Several factors, including your medical history, length of prior alcohol use, and frequency of drinking, will influence the type of treatment you choose. If you've struggled with heavy drinking for years, an inpatient treatment clinic may be the best option for you.

What are the phases of rehabilitation from alcoholism?

Recovery is divided into three stages: abstinence, repair, and growth.

Dealing with cravings and avoiding repeating alcohol consumption is at the core of the first stage. The main purpose of the second stage is to restore the damage that the addiction has caused. The growth stage is marked by the development of previously unlearned skills that have contributed to addiction vulnerability. This final stage focuses on going forward with one's life and developing mechanisms and strategies for long-term sobriety.

What’s the distinction between inpatient and outpatient alcohol treatments?

The primary distinction between inpatient and outpatient alcohol care is that inpatient care involves a patient's overnight stay in the hospital (or controlled setting), whereas outpatient care does not. You will be supervised by a healthcare team in the facilities throughout your treatment and recovery while you receive inpatient alcohol recovery care.

How long does inpatient treatment last?

People who go to inpatient rehab facilities and stay for longer periods of time have better treatment outcomes in general.

An inpatient alcohol rehabilitation treatment should last at least 28 to 30 days. These are, however, best suited to those with minor addictions who have access to continuing support and a sober living environment outside the program.

What’s the cost difference between inpatient and outpatient alcohol treatments?

Inpatient alcohol treatment will be more expensive than outpatient care because of all the professionals, logistics and facilities involved.

Is there an inpatient alcohol aftercare programme?

Yes, and it's commonly referred to as sober living or sober living houses (SLH). This stage serves as a bridge between rehab and normal life, allowing patients to continue to be monitored and receive assistance while returning to their everyday activities. Patients can stay at most sober living residences indefinitely as long as they follow the house rules and remain sober. Individuals will, however, grow out of sober living and be ready to live on their own once they reach a particular point in their recovery.

What therapies are included in an inpatient alcohol rehab program?

Inpatient alcohol rehab includes support groups, individual or group counselling, co-occurring mental health treatment, and the start of long-term addiction recovery. Depending on your needs and peer group, each inpatient recovery programme may be different. A programme for teenagers, for example, may differ from one for senior individuals.
