Inpatient Treatment for Alcoholism

Given the fact that over 85% of Americans self-report drinking alcohol to some degree, the use of alcohol seems here to stay. It is readily available, legal, and served at celebrations, ceremonies, and at the dinner table. Some people become addicted to alcohol. In fact, nearly 15 million people over age 12 suffer from an alcohol use disorder (AUD), and over 400,000 of those are adolescents. How can you help yourself or someone you know who is struggling with an AUD? Inpatient treatment for alcoholism has a proven track record for positive long-term outcomes.

Do You Need Inpatient Treatment for Alcoholism?

Inpatient alcoholism treatment is considered best practice in a number of specific situations. For example, you probably qualify for residential rehab if you:

  • Have experienced a prior relapse
  • Have the flexibility to commit to a residential program – including work, school, and other commitments
  • Have a dual diagnosis, which means you have a co-occurring mental health disorder
  • Are addicted to another substance in addition to alcohol
  • Live in a place that is difficult to make into a safe, trigger-free, alcohol-free zone
  • Lack a reliable support network

What Is Alcohol Addiction Inpatient Treatment?

In most inpatient alcoholism treatment centers, you will enroll in a program that is either 30 days, 60 days, or 90 days. While in residence, you receive wrap-around care in a full spectrum of services and activities geared toward your burgeoning sobriety and the first leg of your recovery journey.

Coordinated, individualized, evidence-based therapies might include everything from one-on-one counseling to support groups. At Mile High Recovery Center, we offer the following treatment and support options:

  • Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) – focuses on aligning your behaviors with your values and using mindfulness and acceptance to manage responses to chaotic, traumatic, overwhelming experiences
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) – leverages the links among thoughts, beliefs, and actions to create shifts in thinking to change behavioral outcomes
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) – joins seemingly opposite goals – to live in the moment with acceptance and also create gradual change – to develop healthy habits, improve relationships, and modulate emotions
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) – uses bilateral stimulation of the brain to process trauma and other painful memories, relocating them so they are less likely to re-traumatize and create psychological pain
  • Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) – uses pharmaceuticals to mute cravings for and block the brain’s receptors to certain substances (approved for alcohol and opioids)
  • Motivational enhancement therapy (MET) – aims to inspire internally motivated change by shifting ambivalence about drug treatment to motivation

In addition, you will have the opportunity to engage in group and family therapy, equine and adventure therapy, addiction and mental health psychiatry, and medication management.
