Alcohol Detox and Inpatient Programs

Treatment Options for Alcoholism
Alcoholism treatment usually begins with a medical alcohol detox program. Medical detox at America’s Rehab Campuses helps you safely withdraw from alcohol, so you can avoid many of the risks and dangers associated with quitting alcohol on your own. Medical detox treats alcohol dependence and often involves the use of medications that help relieve alcohol withdrawal symptoms.
Inpatient Residential Rehab
Inpatient residential rehab, also known as residential rehab, allows you to live at the treatment center as you recover from alcoholism. Inpatient rehab programs provide daily nutritious meals and fill your schedule with a range of therapies and therapeutic activities, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, meditation, and exercise.
Partial Hospitalization Program
Partial hospitalization programs are for people who need help establishing healthy, daily structure but do not need 24-hour monitoring and support. PHP is also referred to as day treatment and meets five days per week for six hours per day.
Intensive Outpatient Program
Outpatient rehab is more flexible than other recovery programs and is structured around your work, education, and home life. Intensive outpatient programs are also available and ideal for those who want the flexibility of traditional outpatient rehab with more frequent therapy sessions that occur three days per week for three hours per day.
Medications Used to Treat Alcoholism
In addition to therapy and medical detox, medications can be used to reduce your cravings for alcohol or make you experience adverse reactions to alcohol in the event you relapse and start drinking again. This treatment is known as medication-assisted treatment, or MAT, and is proven to help with long-term abstinence.
Acamprosate, for example, reduces alcohol cravings and withdrawal symptoms to help you stay focused on therapy and achieving a healthier, alcohol-free lifestyle. Naltrexone is another medication used to reduce alcohol cravings and is also used in opioid drug rehab. Disulfiram produces unpleasant effects such as nausea, vomiting, chest pain, blurred vision, and choking when you consume alcohol while on this medication.
Choosing the Right Alcohol Rehab Program
How do you know which alcohol rehab program is best for you or your loved one? If you need help choosing the right program, a doctor and psychologist can perform a thorough medical evaluation and make a professional recommendation. Medical alcohol detox is usually included as part of your treatment program to reduce the risk of withdrawal-related complications like seizures, delirium tremens, and heart problems.
Next comes choosing a program type: inpatient, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, or outpatient. Inpatient rehab is recommended for those who need 24-hour supervision and support and who want to recover in a safe, comfortable environment away from distractions and negative influences. Outpatient rehab programs are recommended for those who are highly determined at staying abstinent and who are also managing families, work, and school outside of addiction treatment.
America’s Rehab Campuses offers fully integrated alcohol rehab programs for those who need help recovering from alcoholism. Our treatment programs have been thoughtfully designed to individualize treatment for each patient and begin with a biopsychosocial and medical evaluation by a medical doctor and psychologist.
