Why Taking Time for Yourself With an Inpatient Rehab Program Is Key to Recovery

If you're struggling with substance abuse or addiction, you're not alone. You also have a few different options when it comes to treatment for addiction in Northern California. However, for many people, inpatient rehab is the best option. Below, we'll discuss eight reasons why inpatient rehab for addiction could be the right choice for you.

1. Access to Help Around the Clock

You'll need all the support you can get as you start the journey toward recovery. When you choose inpatient rehab, you'll have access to support from other individuals in recovery, medical professionals and addiction specialists.

2. Fewer Distractions and Stressors

In your daily life, many factors can get in the way of your recovery. Maybe work or a relationship has been a source of stress in the past, causing you to turn to alcohol or other substances to unwind.

These distractions don't exist in an inpatient rehab facility. You can focus on recovery full time while learning healthy coping mechanisms to stay on track long after returning to the real world.

3. Structure and a Schedule

Addiction can make you feel like your life is out of your control. Inpatient rehab offers a space to clear your head and stick to a schedule and much-needed structure. You'll keep appointments with doctors and attend therapy sessions. Focusing on your day-to-day schedule can help you develop a new mindset that doesn't revolve around addiction.

4. Medical Supervision

Withdrawal is one reason why some substances, such as alcohol, are so addictive. Medically assisted detox is a must for some clients. If you're recovering from a severe addiction, you'll be much safer doing so with the help of trained professionals at an inpatient facility.

5. Fewer Bad Influences

If you're struggling with substance abuse, your current environment probably isn't doing you any favors. Maybe you're surrounded by people who have facilitated your addiction in the past. You probably have access to alcohol and other addictive substances, and if not, you know where to find them.

Recovery is tough enough without temptation. Inpatient rehab for your addiction will remove you from that environment so you can begin healing in a safe space.

6. Treatment for Co-Occurring Conditions

Many people who struggle with addiction also deal with underlying mental health symptoms. By treating both conditions simultaneously, inpatient rehab can help address the root of your addiction and decrease your likelihood of future relapse.

7. Therapy Sessions

Therapy is an essential step in the recovery process. It can help you come to terms with the reality of your addiction and develop strategies to stay sober. Many inpatient rehab facilities offer group therapy and support, as well as individual sessions.

8. A Lasting Support System

Recovery is a lifelong process. When you go to inpatient rehab, you develop a support system of professionals who want to help you and other individuals going through the same issues. This support will stay with you long after you leave the facility.
