You may be able to admit that you have a problem with drugs and alcohol. You may even be willing to admit that you need professional help. However, many addicts will balk at the idea of committing for 30 days to an inpatient drug rehab. They will make half- hearted attempts at getting sober, progressing further and further into their addiction. Doing what you have to do to get sober, and not making excuses, can save you from even more pain and loss.
- You have tried drug counseling or outpatient substance abuse treatment and it didn’t work
If outpatient counseling did not work for you it may be because you require a higher level of care and the support of caring and dedicated professionals 24/7. Inpatient offers a comfortable environment where one is safe from people, places and things that may act as triggers.
- You require medical supervision
Medical supervision is required for those who have developed a physical dependency on their drug of choice and need to detox. Detoxing can create certain medical and psychological risks. It is important that you have 24/7 assistance and monitoring. Medical supervision is also recommended for those who have other medical issues in addition to addiction. Drinking and drugging—and the lifestyle that goes with it— can take a tremendous toll on the body. The recovery process must represent a balance of the mental, physical and spiritual. It is important that you understand where you are at physically as you begin on the road to recovery.
- You suffer from a co-occurring disorder
Those with a dual diagnosis must get mentally and physically stabilized before the recovery process can truly begin. A dual diagnosis—such as depression, PTSD, OCD or bipolar disorder— can complicate the treatment of addiction. Choosing an inpatient rehab is often recommended to ensure ongoing psychiatric treatment alongside therapy and the 12 Steps.
