Inpatient programs are one of the best addiction treatment plans in South Florida. Find out if inpatient rehab is the right choice for you.

Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab

Generally, most people will start their recovery journey with inpatient rehab. These programs have a minimum length of 28 days, and patients reside in a medically supervised treatment facility. Here, patients have a secure and safe place to undergo the more intensive treatment portion of their recovery plan.

Inpatient rehab programs follow a rigorous schedule and guidelines. These are meant to provide a sense of structure and allow patients to rebuild responsibility, integrity, life skills, and other attributes lost to addiction.

Thanks to the organized structure, patients are also removed from stressful home circumstances, environmental triggers, and other situations that can interfere in their recovery and lead to relapse. The idea is to focus on recovery, leaving all distractions outside the treatment facility solely.

Often, inpatient rehab programs will also offer partial hospitalization services. These can be beneficial for those struggling with the adverse health consequences of addiction. Focusing on a healthy body and mindset is paramount for recovery.

There are many inpatient rehab centers to choose from in South Florida. After becoming free of harmful withdrawal symptoms is when treatment begins. Lighthouse Recovery Institute is one of the very few addiction centers to offer comprehensive addiction treatment after detoxification. Our commitment is to help men and women recover from addiction.

Our mission is to offer personalized treatment and offer holistic solutions to help our patients find long-term recovery.

Residence Substance Abuse Treatment
My daughter has been struggling with addiction for a while now. I found Lighthouse Recovery Institute, and I’ll be forever grateful for their help for my daughter and my family. They remained in constant communication with me, and their family support liaison directed me to many resources that helped me get support for myself. I would recommend them for someone struggling with addiction and whose family needs support as I did.

Advantages of Choosing an Inpatient Program

The decision to enter an inpatient program is a major one that requires the entire family’s support and encouragement. We believe in the importance of creating a personalized level of care that caters to each patient’s unique needs. Most of the time, recovering addicts will start their journey with medical detox, then move into an inpatient facility. Eventually, they’ll move to an outpatient setting as they transition back into their daily responsibilities.

Medical Support

Detox from certain substances can be life-threatening. Having access to medical support, trained to handle these situations can be life-saving. Inpatient rehab provides medical support once someone leaves detox to ease the program and guarantee a better outcome.

Structure and Guidance

Inpatient rehab is a structured environment with every second of the day accounted for. Rehab programs follow a structured plan to help people embrace healthy living and start working towards their recovery.

Nutritional Support

Nutrition plays a vital role in addiction recovery. Meals in inpatient rehab are designed to meet the nutritional needs of someone detoxing from drugs and alcohol. Those in recovery need a diet high in thiamine and other vitamins that substance abuse depletes. Nutritional support can also help with withdrawal symptoms like nausea, vomiting, stomach upset, and cravings.

Safe Environment

Not everyone who chooses to detox from drugs and alcohol is surrounded by a safe environment of a supportive group of people. Inpatient rehab offers an opportunity to change the scenery and walk away from a toxic environment. Rehab helps people build new and healthy relationships that don’t involve substances.

Easy Access to Treatment

Most addicts don’t have the means for transportation, which means they won’t meet the scheduling demands of other forms of treatment. Inpatient rehab allows them to live in the same place they receive treatment. With the right support, transportation assistance, and proximity to the treatment center, patients are more likely to fulfill the program and embrace sobriety.

Types of Therapy Services in Inpatient Care

While inpatient and outpatient rehab programs offer similar therapy sessions, the difference lies in the intensity and frequency. Inpatient rehab programs for substance abuse treatments are more intense and allow patients to receive individual and group therapy sessions at a greater frequency than those in outpatient care.

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, a patient works with a licensed professional in private sessions to acquire self-knowledge, insight into their addiction, and coping skills for their maladaptive behaviors.

The session objectives can frequently change throughout treatment. They can shift focus to various clinical topics to include the patient’s process in addiction treatment, personal obstacles to recovery, interactions with family outside of addiction treatment, cravings, new coping skills, and goals.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

The majority of men and women who suffer from substance use dependency also have a co-occurring psychological disorder, such as depression or anxiety. Upon arrival at our drug rehab facility, each patient will meet with the on-staff psychiatrist, who will carefully evaluate him or her for any potential underlying dual diagnosis disorders.

Each patient will be reevaluated several times throughout their stay and treated for any professionally diagnosed disorders concurrently.

Group Therapy

The ability to honestly and authentically open up in a group setting is a necessary component of lifelong addiction recovery. Even after drug rehab, recovering addicts and alcoholics will find the clear majority of their support within a group.

Group therapy gives recovering addicts the opportunity to learn new coping techniques, practice their communication skills, and gain hope and strength from their peers.

Family Therapy

Family counseling plays a vital role in the success of the patient’s long-term success from drug or alcohol addiction turmoil.

Providing support enables the therapist to assess the family system and all the unique issues the family has experienced. The purpose is to assist the family as well as the patient to understand the disease of addiction.

Family therapy aims to encourage understanding and collaboration among family members to solve the issues within the system and enhance communication, trust, and honesty.


Does Insurance Cover Inpatient Rehab?

Insurance plans will cover some or all the costs of inpatient programs and substance use disorder treatment. Suppose you or a loved one are considering entering our intensive outpatient program for drug or alcohol addiction and looking to obtain detailed information about the insurance plans. In that case, our trained staff could provide a free assessment. For more information regarding insurance coverage for our recovery programs, contact us today.

How Long is Residential Treatment?

There are many timelines for drug rehab programs out there. Overall, long-term treatment programs are preferred over short-term ones. Research indicates that most addicted individuals need at least 3 months of treatment to significantly reduce or stop their drug use. The best outcomes occur with longer durations of treatment.

However, to some people, the possibility of enrolling in a long-term rehab program is impossible. Those with responsibilities like work or family might not have the support they need to check into a rehab facility for more than a month.

Are all programs the same?

No. Our addiction treatment programs are designed and personalized to match your individual needs and your addiction.

Is alcohol rehab the same?

No. While the structure might be similar, alcohol addiction affects the brain differently, and we follow specific therapies and treatment programs designed to help those with alcohol use disorder.

Is family involved in treatment?

If possible. At Lighthouse Recovery Institute, we believe family inclusion in treatment is critical for long-term recovery. Whenever possible, we’ll do our best to incorporate family members into the treatment process. We’ll also assist family members who might be challenging to cope with their loved ones being in rehab. People in recovery need the support of family and friends to make progress, so we often invite family members to form support groups during therapy.

Do you use medications?

If needed. For specific addictions, a medication-assisted treatment program might be beneficial, particularly during the early recovery stages. Medications can help ease withdrawal symptoms, control cravings, and make the recovery process easier on those in treatment.

How long is the treatment?

It depends. Our rehab programs are personalized to address your needs. However, most of our programs range in the 60- to 90-day, with many choosing continuum care after leaving rehab. 

Is detox mandatory?

Most of our patients come to our rehab center after completing our drug and alcohol detox program. Someone must be no longer using substances to start a rehab program. Otherwise, withdrawal symptoms can interfere with treatment and make progress too challenging.

Our commitment lies in helping you or your loved one find the best addiction treatment that channels your unique needs. Help for addiction is available, start today.
