Inpatient Addiction Treatment Centers
One of the main benefits to inpatient rehab centers is that the providers of care have full control of the environment that create success for the patient. These 90 day rehab programs not only treat the patients but they become residents at the rehab facility and have supervision 24 hours per day. This level of care is highly recommended when appropriate for those who may have endured dependencies psychologically and/or physical health issues.

Methods & Treatment for 90-Day Addiction Rehab
There are many types of rehab programs available for drug acciction. Treatment methods for 90-day drug rehab are focused on groups and people having a common goal, along with regular individual therapy sessions. These groups help the members provide support by others of the same age that can help people stay away from drugs and alcohol. Groups often focus on activities that people wish to complete together and may discuss common problems that the group members share. These groups may include:
12-step programs with group meetings.
What Happens During 90-Day Addiction Rehab?
The first step in the process is intake, which is when the patient meets with a counselor to provide a detailed history of the addiction to be treated, as well as any pertinent medical and mental health considerations, in order to determine the best course of treatment. When a person starts addiction rehab, the first step is intake. During intake, program rules will be explained, as well as completion of consents forms and any other necessary paperwork.
Following the intake step is detoxification (detox). Detox can vary from a few days or a few weeks, depending on the addiction. An inpatient structured detox rehab facility allows people to withdraw from various abused substances in a safe and comfortable atmosphere.
After detox, patients will transition into ongoing addiction therapy for the remainder of the rehab duration. Addiction therapy includes a number of behavioral therapeutic techniques and, in some cases, medication-assisted treatment interventions to address an individual’s recovery needs.
Prior to completion of a 90-day substance abuse treatment program, aftercare planning will take place. A strong aftercare plan can make all the difference when it comes to long-term sobriety. Various aftercare programs, including sober living arrangements, ongoing outpatient group therapy, individual substance abuse counseling appointments, and regular 12-step or other support group meeting attendance can help people stay on course once the initial period of rehabilitation has ended.
Individuals identified with mild-to-moderate drinking problems may benefit most from a brief intervention, a time-limited, client-centered counseling strategy focused on changing behavior and improving compliance with therapy. Brief interventions typically include five components:
* A statement of medical concern from the counselor or health care provider about the client’s alcohol use.
* Screening and assessment to determine the nature of the alcohol problem.
* Feedback and advice on how to abstain from or reduce alcohol use.
* A course of action that sets specific goals for abstaining from drinking or reducing alcohol consumption.
* A summary of the discussion and the agreed-on course of action and the scheduling of a follow-up appointment.
Brief interventions usually can be conducted in less than half an hour, making them especially useful in settings in which health care providers have limited time, such as hospitals, primary care clinics, and urgent care facilities.
People with mild-to-moderate alcohol use problems often respond well to brief interventions. However, those diagnosed with alcohol use disorders or dependence require more intensive behavioral treatment approaches, such as cognitive behavioral therapy and motivational enhancement therapy.
Motivational enhancement therapy encourages clients to use their own resources to change their behavior. Based on a therapist’s assessment of the type and severity of clients’ drinking-associated problems, clients receive structured feedback to stimulate their motivation to change. Research has shown that cognitive behavioral and motivational therapies have comparable long-term success rates. Another approach, known as 12-Step facilitation, adapts traditional 12-Step methods to behavioral therapy.
Cognitive behavioral approaches to alcohol treatment help clients identify high-risk, relapse situations; learn and rehearse strategies for coping with these situations; and recognize and cope with their cravings for alcohol and its effects Clients participate in role-playing activities and are assigned homework to help develop behavioral and cognitive skills that enable them to cope better with situations that might tempt them to resume former alcohol habits.
Treating Alcohol Problems
Most people who drink do so without adverse consequences. However, some may develop alcohol problems that require some type of intervention or treatment. Nearly two-thirds of the 3.5 million persons who received treatment for a substance use disorder in the past year received treatment for alcohol problems—an estimated 2.4 million persons (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration [SAMHSA] ). Problem alcohol use can lead to various physical, psychological, and social consequences. Early detection and treatment of alcohol problems can minimize or prevent these consequences and related costs. This issue of Substance Abuse in Brief discusses several aspects of treatment, including identifying problem alcohol use, applying brief interventions, introducing behavioral treatment approaches, and providing supportive services and appropriate treatments.
Identifying Alcohol Problems
Identifying risky drinking behavior, alcohol abuse, or alcohol dependence can be difficult. Related health, social, and personal problems often develop slowly and may not be detected without a precipitating event such as a workplace crisis, an incident involving the police, or an alcohol-related automobile crash. In addition, people often are reluctant to acknowledge or discuss alcohol-related problems, even with their doctors. One study found that approximately half of those with alcohol use disorders never mentioned the problem to their doctors and, of those who did, only half were diagnosed as a result. Studies such as this point to the importance of routine screening and assessment by primary care providers to detect and identify problems with alcohol consumption (Center for Substance Abuse Treatment [CSAT] 1997).
Health care providers have a unique opportunity to identify individuals in their care with substance use disorders at an early stage. Health care providers should screen all patients routinely for problems with alcohol by asking questions to learn how much alcohol they drink and how often. They also should ask whether patients’ use of alcohol creates problems in their daily lives and relationships, such as frequent absences from work or arguments with family members about alcohol use. Various screening tests for alcohol use are available for use by the trained health care clinician, including Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) questionnaires and the CAGE instrument. Regardless of length or type, screening instruments have the same goal—to identify individuals who are or may become problem drinkers.
When health care providers ask specific questions about alcohol use, patients have an opportunity to share their concerns and reportedly are two to three times more likely to speak again about their alcohol use with a health care professional. In addition, when such discussions include other health topics such as exercise, diet, weight control, and medications, both providers and patients may feel more comfortable discussing problems with alcohol or other substance use (CSAT 1997). Once an alcohol problem is identified, finding appropriate treatment for the individual is the next step. The level of treatment required depends on the type and severity of alcohol use and any associated problems the person may have. For example, a person with mild alcohol problems usually can benefit from a brief intervention; someone with more severe alcohol problems may require specialized treatment services. To guide treatment planning further, a substance abuse treatment specialist or a physician trained in addiction medicine also can assess the person’s mental and behavioral status.
After a 90 Day Rehab Program, you’ll have several options for aftercare. Throughout the treatment stay during recovery, the staff works with patients to develop a personal plan for aftercare. This can include continuing treatment in an outpatient facility, where individual and group therapy sessions are held on a continual basis.
Attending private individual counseling can also be highly effective at preventing relapse. Attending 12-step or other types of self-help programs is another good aftercare choice. This allows for the development of a strong, sober support group, as well as rewarding positive behavior, and modeling of healthy, sober behaviors.
Self-help meetings are often hosted by inpatient facilities, to provide a transition into meetings. Attending meetings after completion of a 90-day addiction rehab program can make it easier to reintegrate into one’s daily life without having to drink or use drugs.
Be sure to inquire about your chosen recovery center for sober living and extended care for recovery. Sober living environments can be used as halfway houses to support your sobriety as you transition back into the “real” world outside the treatment center. This can be beneficial to some people after addiction rehab.
Aftercare and outpatient therapies that are continued after rehab can also be very helpful. Each addiction treatment facility may have different options.
