Inpatient Rehab

What makes inpatient rehab so special? Why is it the most important step you could take toward recovering from an alcohol or drug addiction? This article is intended to answer those questions, and a few other concerns, as well. To begin with, inpatient rehab allows you to take part in treatment at all times. You will not be in the presence of drugs or alcohol, so there will be no temptation to use these substances. If you need to go through detoxification, an inpatient treatment center will be there to help you. Do not bother with inpatient rehab that encourages outpatient detox – these measures do not usually work, and can actually be dangerous.

 At Cliffside Malibu, we can give you this help and so much more. Do not delay getting help! Our inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is the best you could find, and it offers you a great chance for getting back to a sober, healthy lifestyle. Your future is worth every minute spent in recovery. Alcoholism and drug addiction can be defeated.

Addiction: Two Sides To The Story

You are not simply addicted with your body. Drugs and alcohol do make the physical side of the addicted person crave their effects. Withdrawal symptoms prove this without a doubt. However, there are also powerful psychological and emotional sides to addiction. In this article, we will use the term “mental” to refer to any aspect of addiction that is not physical – this covers the mind, emotions, and spiritual aspects of addiction. You should always look for a program of inpatient rehab that takes both the mental and the physical sides of addiction into account. At Cliffside Malibu, we understand that you cannot beat drug abuse without focusing equal amounts of work on both halves of the addiction.

The Most Important Step

Inpatient rehab certainly belongs on the list of “most important steps” toward winning the battle against addiction. This is partly because of the strength a person with substance use disorderion can wield over an individual. You are very unlikely to succeed in your quest to be drug-free unless you seek professional help. Cliffside Malibu is the premier treatment center for providing excellent care, both during and after the time in which you are a resident.

You will also need inpatient rehab because of the accountability it requires. A drug or alcohol addiction can sneak up on you even after you think you have the problem under control. If there is nobody to whom you are accountable, it is extremely easy to slip right back to where you had been: in the grip of a person with substance use disorderion. We provide excellent aftercare programs to keep this from happening to you. Entering inpatient rehab requires that you admit to yourself and to others that you have a problem, and that it is one you can’t handle on your own. That can be tough, but it is absolutely necessary. Many people underestimate the power of this one simple aspect of inpatient rehab.

The Program Matters

Every center that offers inpatient rehab has its own philosophy of what works and what does not. You should do your research to find the treatment center that will give you the best possible chance of success. At Cliffside Malibu, we never give our patients a one-size-fits-all drug treatment plan. Time and again, we have seen this approach fail at other facilities. You are a unique person, with a new set of problems, concerns, and character strengths – we have never before treated a person exactly like you! Because of this, our inpatient rehab is highly individualized. You will be allowed to have input on how your treatment proceeds. We offer a wide assortment of treatment options, from acupuncture to journaling and family therapy.

Every New Day

As you go through inpatient rehab, it is important to note that addictions can be very persistent. You will have some days when you feel great, and others when you feel worse than ever. This is completely normal, and it should not be seen as a lack of progress. Drug and alcohol addictions are very hard to leave behind; for some people, the cravings will turn up now and then even years down the road. Other deep-seated issues will probably accompany substance abuse, and that is where inpatient rehab really shines as a great benefit.

We at Cliffside Malibu offer you the very best in therapy to help you fight addiction and all its attendant problems. Our family therapy option is one you will probably want to use, because you will certainly need your family’s support as you continue this journey. Our goal is not to “cure” you right off the bat, but to help you learn how to handle your addiction and defeat it one day at a time. There will be setbacks, but they do not have to be permanent.
