When addicts and their family members are trying – often desperately – to find a structured, medically-supervised path to sobriety, it’s important to explore whether inpatient treatment might be an appropriate option.

In its latest blog post, A Forever Recovery, an open-ended drug and alcohol treatment program that gets clients off to a great start and gives them a solid foundation in recovery they can believe in, is helping people answer the potentially life-changing question: is inpatient treatment right for me?
“When addicts and their family members are trying – often desperately – to find a structured, medically-supervised path to sobriety, it’s important to explore whether inpatient treatment might be an appropriate option,” commented A Forever Recovery’s CEO Per Wickstrom.
According to A Forever Recovery, inpatient treatment is suitable for some addicts because:
- It provides a supportive, structured setting that is medically supervised 24/7 to help deal with ongoing challenges, including detox and withdrawal symptom management
- It eliminates access to drugs, alcohol, negative influences and other triggers
- It introduces addicts to others who are on the same journey to sobriety, which can lead to bonding and peer support
- It lets addicts focus on recovery, without the burden of worrying about day-to-day tasks (e.g. going to work, paying bills, etc.).
“Many people believe that inpatient treatment lasts for several months,” added Per Wickstrom. “And while that’s possible, the average program lasts an average of 53 days, which believe it or not is actually shorter than an outpatient program, which lasts an average of 76 days. Essentially, this is because more can be accomplished during an inpatient program, which can help addicts return to a functional life more quickly.”
Addicts and their family members who are exploring the viability of any treatment option – inpatient or outpatient – should consult with their doctor. They can also call a local licensed, accredited and certified rehab facility for information on various treatment programs and methods, as well as online and community resources.
