What you won’t see in substance abuse inpatient drug rehab centersMany addicts fear inpatient clinics because they believe that they will be subject to societal perceptions and become a social outcast. Here’s what you won’t have to deal with if you decide to check yourself into an inpatient facility to get clean and return to a healthy lifestyle. (About)
- Locks. A rehab clinic is not a mental health facility for people with serious psychological problems. Because of this, you’re free to come and go as you please and no one will restrain you.
- Proselytizing. You’ve probably heard of addicts finding faith and transforming their lives to believe in God to overcome their drug and alcohol problems. Some programs even have language describing how you are “powerless” before your addiction. Because of this, some people fear that they are going to be preached to if they go to an inpatient drug rehab center. But unless you specifically seek out a treatment facility that caters to a specific religion or set of beliefs, this is simply not true. (See faith-based recovery.)
- Shock treatment or padded rooms. This is not a mental health facility, where you may expect these to be present. The people treating you will be well-versed in the latest medical findings about the best ways to work with addicts. Ask the facility in advance what kinds of therapy treatments they provide to help you overcome your addiction.
What you will see in an inpatient drug rehab centerNow that you know what you don’t have to fear, it’s time to get a sense of what you will experience. (PsychCentral)
- One-on-one time with doctors. Most facilities offer one-on-one meetings with doctors to personalize your care and allow them to get to know you and your individual situation and temperament better.
- Conversation. You’ll talk in your individual meetings with doctors, you’ll talk in group counseling, as well as interact with other residents through conversation and activities. A major piece of an inpatient drug rehab center is simply about working through your emotions and learning to listen to other people.
- People like you. The people who tend to come to an inpatient facility know that they have a serious problem and they are working diligently to overcome it – just like you are. They may come from all walks of life, but they will be there to support you and you will likely relate to each other and surpass your hurdles together.
