How to Get Alcohol Help for Yourself or Family

Alcohol-Inpatient-Addiction-Services-Rehab-DetoxFor the most part, alcohol is widely available. Furthermore, its use is socially acceptable and it is highly addictive. Because of this combination, AUD (alcohol use disorder) sometimes progresses more rapidly than other kinds of substance abuse issues.

To help patients overcome these problems, the alcohol inpatient rehab centers near you use a variety of tools. Just as no two patients are alike, at Amethyst Recovery, no two alcohol inpatient detox programs are alike.

If you are struggling with alcohol addiction, you are certainly not alone. Roughly fifteen million Americans are in the exact same boat. Tragically, only a tiny percentage of these individuals attend the treatment programs they require. False information about the effectiveness and success of alcohol inpatient rehab is everywhere. But the truth is that these programs have worked in the past, and they can make a major difference for you and your family.

About Alcohol Addiction Inpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment is ideal for many people. After as little as one or two hours a day for eight or ten days, many people see amazing results. But if your AUD is more advanced, an outpatient treatment center may not be enough.

What is the Inpatient Alcohol Detox Process Like?

In many respects, inpatient addiction treatment is just like outpatient treatment except everything takes place inside the facility. The setting helps patients avoid temptation during treatment. These intensive outpatient and inpatient treatments usually include:

  • Counseling, which could involve a non-12-step program,
  • Nutrition and fitness classes to strengthen the body,
  • Meditation and other activities to strengthen the mind, and
  • Antabuse, Naltrexone, and other FDA-approved drugs to ease alcohol cravings.

A Few Steps Further

Yet inpatient addiction treatment also goes several steps further, to help deal with advanced AUD cases. Some people need inpatient drug rehab care because they have physical withdrawal issues. These problems often require 24/7 supervision and care, at least for a brief time.

Furthermore, the inpatient environment is much more relaxed. That’s a significant plus for patients who drink because of stress. Finally, inpatient settings offer additional alcohol rehab resources. These treatment center resources could include pools, spas, additional classes, and other items depending on the individual inpatient alcohol detox protocol.

How Long Does Inpatient Alcohol Detox Take?

There is no single answer to this question. But many times, complete addiction recovery and detoxification requires between five and fourteen days.

Detox is only part of the alcohol rehab equation. At Amethyst Recovery, we help patients replace old unhealthy habits with new healthy routines. Without such replacement, the chances of serious relapse are alarmingly high.

With an additional investment of time, the relapse probability drops significantly in our experience. Furthermore, if relapse does occur, it is usually much less severe.

What Should I Expect from an Alcohol Inpatient Detox Program?

In short, you should expect to invest time in your recovery, and you should expect to get better.

Even a few days away from family and friends is significant. This is a time that is lost forever. But if you need inpatient alcohol treatment, such a plan is the best approach.

Additionally, you are not going to rehab for anyone other than yourself. If you sign in to please your boss or your spouse, you will almost certainly fail. If you expect to succeed, the success rate is usually much different.

What Makes Amethyst’s Inpatient Alcohol Treatment Programs Different?

Alcohol-Inpatient-Field-Joy-Rehab-DetoxOur holistic approach to drug rehab makes us different from some other inpatient treatment options. We believe that AUD is both a chemical and an emotional problem. So, we focus on both of these areas.

There is a wide range of drugs and other therapies available to assist in the recovery process and break alcohol’s grip on families. Our addiction counselors and trained medical professionals work together to find the right combination.

But we do not stop there. If drug therapy alone was enough, many people could probably do rehab at home. In the cloistered inpatient environment, we help patients replace substance abuse with more meaningful habits.

The Cost of Inpatient Alcohol Rehab Programs

In addition to the temporal investment, recovery usually involves a financial investment as well. Both these investments usually pay significant dividends.

What Factors Affect Rehab Costs?

Length of stay obviously affects cost. A two-week stay in an alcohol rehab facility is more expensive than a one-week stay. There are some other factors as well, such as:

  • A degree of medical treatment necessary,
  • Amount of insurance reimbursement,
  • Other aspects of the alcohol withdrawal inpatient protocol, and
  • The patient’s progress as determined by frequent inpatient alcohol counseling sessions.

The type of recovery program may affect pricing as well. At Amethyst, we offer a number of programs tailored to certain age groups, such as seniors or young adults. Faith-based treatment options also work very well for some patients. After all, psychologist Carl Jung once said “Alcohol is the reduced form of spirit. Therefore, many people, lacking spirit, take to drink. They fill themselves with alcohol.”

Does Insurance Cover Inpatient Alcohol Programs?

Many insurance plans, as well as many Medicare, plans, at least partially, cover inpatient and outpatient treatment costs. Severe AUD involves such serious health risks that many insurers believe preventative care is cheaper than the alternative.

The financial counselors at our drug and alcohol inpatient rehab center have successfully used this approach in the past. We have convinced many reluctant insurance companies to pay some benefits now as opposed to an eye-popping amount of money later.

Life After Drug and Alcohol Inpatient Rehab

Alcohol-Inpatient-New-Life-Rehab-RecoveryThe road to recovery is not always smooth or straight. But it does almost always end in a much better place. We have a deep alumni network to provide ongoing support, as well as inspirational success stories. These resources help former inpatient treatment recipients carry the momentum they’ve built up into their everyday lives.

The final step is to pay it forward. Many people face the exact same struggles you have overcome. In the same way, recent alums benefit from the ones who have gone before, you can help change a life through sober living.

The Effects of AUD Recovery

AUD recovery affects your entire family for years to come. Children of alcoholics are more likely to become alcoholics themselves. “People with family histories of alcoholism tend to have lower levels of endorphins,” explained author Andrew Solomon. Therefore, they use artificial morphine (alcohol) to replace natural morphine (endorphins).

With help from one of our inpatient programs, you can break that cycle. You can do better for yourself and your family. If you think you need inpatient alcohol treatment, give us a call today.
