In 2021, 46 million Americans met the criteria for a substance use disorder diagnosis, according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. That’s 16.5% of the total population. If we applied the number to the Greater Boston area, that’s just over 1.3 million people. Addiction in America is reaching crisis proportions, but only 1 in 10 people ever receive the help they need to fight this disease. One of the reasons for this is stigma; our society unfairly places blame on those living with addiction for their condition when in reality, addiction is no different than cancer, diabetes, or asthma. Many people internalize this blame, too ashamed to reach out for help.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Science has shown that people can recover from a substance use disorder with appropriate treatment, including therapy, medicine, and support. Developing a substance use disorder is not a character flaw or moral failing. It results from altered brain chemistry; addiction is a medical illness. Like any other chronic illness, finding the proper treatment is the first step in improving your quality of life by managing your disease. This is where PsyClarity health comes in. Our practice follows guidelines established by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, meaning therapies are evidence-based.
What Is Inpatient Rehab?
Inpatient rehab, also called residential rehab, is a program where you live at our residential facility while undergoing treatment. Inpatient rehab is the most intensive care offered for rehab programs and is often recommended to those experiencing severe addiction following a medical detox. Inpatient rehab benefits many people, allowing them to step away from stressors and focus solely on healing from their illness. If you can step away from obligations like school, kids, or work, inpatient rehab is a fantastic choice.
What Is Inpatient Drug Rehab Like?
You’ll be surrounded by love and support while staying at PsyClarity Health’s residential treatment facility. There are onsite fitness facilities, lounging areas, catered meals 3x a day, and many other amenities to make you feel at home. You’ll spend your days undergoing individual and group therapies and relaxing evenings. We offer group fitness classes, hikes, and various team sports to interested persons. Nurses and health care teams are on site 24/7 to provide medical and emotional support, and doctors administer medications. While staying at our facility, you’ll be comfortable, well-fed, and treated with dignity and respect.
What To Expect During Residential Rehab
When you arrive for treatment at our men-only facility, a comprehensive interview will be conducted by our staff. This interview will help us make program recommendations, factor in your family history, history of drug use, and screen for co-occurring disorders. About half of the people who develop a substance use disorder also deal with a mental health disorder like PTSD, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, or ADHD. Both illnesses must be treated for recovery to be possible.
On that note, you should expect to participate in a lot of individual and group therapy. We use evidence-based therapy models that are proven to help reduce symptoms of mental health disorders, such as
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. One of the most common forms of therapy used in addiction treatment, CBT primarily aims to unearth the thoughts and feelings that motivate certain actions, reducing symptoms of various mental health conditions.
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. A modified type of CBT, Its primary goals are to teach people how to live in the moment, develop healthy ways to cope with stress, regulate their emotions, and improve their relationships with others.
- Anger Management. A psycho-therapeutic program for anger prevention and control. It has been described as deploying anger successfully. Anger is often a result of frustration or of feeling blocked or thwarted.
- Seeking Safety. A group focused on the Seeking Safety Model, which is an evidence-based treatment for PTSD, substance abuse, and other problem behaviors that stem from emotional dysregulation.
- Healing through Creativity. A group focused on exploring how we experience life, pain, and healing by integrating art and creativity.
- Distress Tolerance Skills. A group focus on learning the necessary skills concerning tolerating and surviving a crisis and accepting life as it is in the moment, improving impulsive/self-destructive decisions.
- Denial Management. A group focusing on learning how to identify the thoughts, feelings, urges, actions, and social reactions associated with denial patterns and how these patterns might affect their ability to sustain sobriety.
How Long Does Inpatient Rehab Last in Boston?
Each individual responds to treatment at their own pace, which means no two people progress on the same timeline. Research shows that most people need at least three months of treatment to stop their substance use. Those who spend even longer in treatment show even better results. This does not mean you need to spend six months in residential rehab to stay sober, but rather that a tiered system progressing from inpatient to outpatient treatment programs is enormously beneficial to those working towards recovery. Recovery from a substance use disorder is a life-long commitment, and aftercare planning will be crucial to your success. Your PsyClarity team will work with you to find an alumni support organization like Narcotics Anonymous or SMART recovery that suits your lifestyle.
30 Day Rehab
Residential rehab programs are usually divided into 30-day allotments. If you are living with an opioid or alcohol use disorder, a 30-day program is a good starting point. Our staff will monitor you 24 hours a day to ensure your comfort and safety as you deal with withdrawal’s physical and emotional symptoms. The number of external stressors you have to deal with will be significantly reduced in a 30-day residential rehab stay.
60 Day Rehab
As you progress toward the end of your first 30 days, your care team may recommend additional time. Or maybe you don’t feel ready to return to society now that you’ve begun to heal. Your care team will work with your insurance company to ensure you have the time to recover from the terrible disease known as addiction.
90 Day Rehab
For those with a particularly severe form of a substance use disorder or those who may not have a safe home environment to return to, an additional 30 days may be recommended. Since research shows us that three months is the minimum time needed to give someone their best shot at recovery, you shouldn’t feel bad or ashamed that you need more time in rehab. Nobody would think of chastising a person with cancer for needing more radiation or chemotherapy; the same applies to those with a substance use disorder.
