How Long Is Inpatient Rehab?

What Is Inpatient Rehab?

Inpatient rehab is characterized by the fact that while undergoing rehabilitation for a substance use disorder or mental health concern, clients live at the facility. (The opposite of inpatient rehab is outpatient rehab.)  

In inpatient residential rehab, clients undergo structured treatment designed to help them challenge their distorted thinking and develop new and healthy coping strategies that can help them maintain sobriety after treatment. 

An inpatient rehab facility can range from small (6ish people) to large (approximately 30 or larger) individuals. Therapeutic treatments can vary based on location, as can the style of treatment (individual vs group therapy) and the availability of certified professionals. 

How Long Is Inpatient Rehab?

How long is inpatient rehab? This depends on the needs of the client. Typically ranging from 30-90 days, clients can even need longer if they are continuing to struggle or had relapses during that time frame. 

The amount of time spent in inpatient rehab can vary based on some positive and negative factors. While some choose to detox at a separate facility, undergoing detox in the same location that you will be undergoing rehabilitative treatment in can extend your time there. Additionally, clients may not be able to say for the duration of their treatment. Insurance coverage and cost often play a big factor in where clients can attend and for how long.

Who Should Go to Inpatient Rehab?

Clients who attend inpatient residential rehab may go for a number of different reasons. Those who are automatically recommended to inpatient rehab include individuals who are attempting rehab for the first time, those with multiple diagnoses, and individuals with severe addiction.

Individuals who are attempting to get clean for the first time are recommended to inpatient rehab because of the structure and support that can be provided by the staff. Getting clean for the first time, undergoing detox, and struggling through withdrawal symptoms are often so challenging that support is needed. At a residential inpatient rehab, there is always support available for clients who need it.

The second major group of people that are recommended to attend inpatient residential rehab is clients who have been diagnosed with a dual-diagnosis disorder. These clients suffer from a substance use disorder and an additional mental illness that is compounded and impacting the substance use disorder. These clients might suffer from various mood, personality, anxiety, and depressive disorders that require additional mental health support that cannot be as adequately provided in an outpatient setting.

Lastly, individuals with a severe addiction to alcohol or drugs will be recommended to attend residential inpatient rehab. Individuals with a severe addiction to substances often have developed a tolerance, experience significant withdrawal symptoms, and struggle with severe cravings for a longer time than other individuals. It is recommended that those who are evaluated and determined to have a severe addiction should attend residential rehab for safety, structure, and support.
