Features of Inpatient Treatment

WhiteSands sets itself apart from competitors in that they offer all levels of care and a full continuum of addiction treatment and mental health programs directly on-site. Why does inpatient treatment work? Some of the reasons why inpatient residential treatment programs work includes:

  • Immersive program 
  • Structured days – provide a safe, nurtured, and structured environment in which to recover
  • Direction, guidance, support, help, encouragement 

Residential treatment programs aim to provide individuals with the tools and resources necessary, along with education on the foundation of their addiction, so they can work toward lasting sobriety. Inpatient residential treatment programs typically last for 30 days, but some programs may last for 60 days or longer. During treatment, individuals will receive 24/7 care from a team of professionals. This team may include doctors, nurses, counselors, and other addiction specialists. Treatment will typically involve some form of detoxification, individual and group therapy, medication, and other activities.

Some of the tactics and mechanisms that patients will learn throughout the course of treatment include:

  • Coping mechanisms
  • Trigger management skills
  • Aftercare and 12-step facilitation
  • Outreach programs

Addiction is a relapsing and chronic disease that requires ongoing care and support to properly manage. While there is no cure for the disease, it can be overcome and managed.
