What is Inpatient Treatment?


Inpatient treatment may consist of detoxification, short-term residential, moderated and long term residential.  The treatment level that is needed is based upon the information that is gathered at the assessment for treatment services.


Detoxification is the process whereby a drug or alcohol intoxicated or dependent client is assisted through the period of time required to eliminate the presence of the intoxicating substance (by metabolic or other means) and any other dependency factors while keeping the physiological and psychological risk to the client at a minimum.  This process also includes efforts to motivate and support the client to seek formal treatment after the detoxification process.


Short-term residential treatment is a type of service that includes 24-hour professionally directed evaluation, care, and treatment for addicted client in acute distress.  These clients’ addiction symptomatology is demonstrated by moderate impairment of social, occupational or school functioning.  Rehabilitation is a key treatment goal.


Moderate and Long-term residential treatment is a type of service that includes 24-hour professionally directed evaluation, care and treatment for addicted clients in chronic distress, whose addiction symptomatology is demonstrated by severe impairment of social, occupational or school functioning.  Habilitation is the treatment goal.

Partial hospitalization treatment consists of psychiatric, psychological and other types of therapy on a planned and regularly scheduled basis in which the client resides within the facility. This service is designed for those clients who do not require 24-hour residential care, but who would benefit for more intensive treatments than offered in Outpatient treatment options. Partial hospitalization services consist of regularly schedule individual and group treatment sessions of at least 3 days per week, with a minimum of 10 hours of treatment per week.
