Inpatient Alcohol Rehab Virginia

Article provided by: Safe Harbor Recovery Center

Addiction is not a condition you should feel ashamed of. Addiction is, in fact, a disease. But yet, you still feel embarrassed to reach out for help. Contact the staff at Safe Harbor Recovery Center to see how their inpatient alcohol rehab in Virginia can help you get on the path to lifelong sobriety.

What happens during inpatient alcohol treatment?

The first step for any individual entering an inpatient facility is an intake exam. During the intake exam, individuals answer questions about their drinking habits, the amount of alcohol consumed in one sitting, etc. The clinician conducting the exam needs to know everything so they can devise a treatment plan to meet that individual’s needs. The client answers a battery of other questions so the clinician can see what other conditions (mental health or physical) coexist with the cilent's alcoholism. The treatment plan the individual receives at the facility is all-encompassing.

After check-in, the client begins the detox process. Detoxing from alcohol can be a painful process. There is a broad range of conditions and symptoms that an individual may experience.  Those conditions include:

  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Hallucinations
  • Delirium tremors

For client safety, a detox happens under the watch of trained personnel.  Should medical complications arise, they are equipped to handle them.

Types of alcohol treatment

There are multiple strategies for treating alcoholism. The first step for any individual is therapy. Any person participating in treatment at a residential facility participates in group therapy. Group therapy is highly effective since individuals learn from and support each other on their respective roads to recovery. Individuals also participate in one-on-one therapy with a trained professional. Addiction does not exist in a vacuum. There is always an underlying issue, such as emotional trauma or mental illness. Individual therapy helps to uncover and treat those conditions.

At our inpatient alcohol rehab in Virginia, we also offer family therapy. Addiction doesn’t just harm the addicted individual. Their disease also hurts their families and loved ones. Therapy is a phenomenal arena for all parties to speak about how the addicted individual's behavior made them feel and what they need to move forward and trust that person again. An addicted person needs support once they leave rehab, so it is crucial to have the family on board and supportive once the individual leaves the facility.

What happens after you leave rehab?

When a client leaves rehab, they either go directly back into their daily life, or on to a transitional sober living facility. Some clients need additional help after completing rehab, and a transitional facility is often perfect for their needs. Others are ready to join their families and the workforce again, so they head straight home, and back into their daily lives. You, and the treatment staff, decide which is best for you based on your progress during your stay at the facility.

Don’t wait any longer to get onto the path to sobriety. The staff at Safe Harbor Recovery Center is waiting for your call. Our inpatient alcohol rehab in Virginia will create a treatment plan that will help you get and stay sober for good.
