A Glimpse Into Our Inpatient Drug Abuse Treatment Program

If you’re considering addiction recovery at Above It All treatment center, you may be wondering what to expect throughout the experience. In this entry, we will offer a glimpse into our inpatient drug alcohol treatment program to provide you with a better idea.

What To Expect

Inpatient drug addiction programs offer patients group and individual therapies to aid in the recovery experience. With the personal education and awareness conveyed during treatment, studies show a higher rate of success when compared to patients taking a solo route.

Patients arriving at Above It All will be expected to complete inpatient paperwork, including permission-to-treat and insurance forms. Once paperwork has been completed, luggage is checked before escorting patients to their rooms. Checking personal belongings is a necessary aspect of treatment to ensure no concealed substances make their way into the facility.

During the initial stay, patient phone calls and visits are kept to a minimum. Patients are permitted to communicate with loved ones through our family counseling, alongside a licensed therapist. In this way, family members are able to hear what their loved ones are going through, and the changes taking place throughout treatment.

Patients are also encouraged to attend 12 step meetings on a daily basis. These meetings serve to keep our patients focused, while providing them with a sense of support and education. In many cases, patients will continue attending 12 step meetings  well after their rehab completion.


Upon admission, patients are assigned an addiction counselor to help support and monitor their progress throughout treatment. This individual offers private therapy throughout the week, in addition to family therapy sessions.

People turn to rehab programs for a variety of reasons, and unfortunately they are not always the right ones. Simply put, the recovery process will be ineffective unless a patient is truly invested in the rehabilitation process. Though many turn to recovery in an effort to avoid consequences with their family, job or through the court, these reasons alone will do little to ensure success in recovery without the proper mindset.

Time Frame

The amount of time patients spend in rehab varies. Determining factors regarding patient stay includes insurance restrictions, and the patient’s own view on their recovery. In some cases, patients may even opt to extend their rehabilitation stay in order to ensure a smooth and healthy transition back into society.

When the time comes to leave rehab, patients will still have a fair amount of work ahead of them. Follow-up treatment is common, and may include 12-step meetings or outpatient counseling. Maintaining sobriety can often be more difficult than slipping back into old habits. As such, it’s important for patients to continue their education and recovery methods well after they’ve left the Above It All grounds.
