When you’re struggling with an addiction, it’s easy to forget another kind of life is possible. But a life without addiction is out there! At Washburn House, we help people break the addiction cycle and rebuild their lives. We offer several programs to help clients recover, including an inpatient alcohol and drug rehab program.
What Is an Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Program?
An inpatient program is a treatment program where you live at the treatment facility. You receive 24-hour care in a highly structured, residential setting. Inpatient care can help a range of issues, but at Washburn House, we specialize in getting you well from substance abuse and addiction.
If you participate in intensive outpatient rehab programming, you go to daily programs at a facility, but still live at home and manage other responsibilities like school or work. In an inpatient drug rehab program, Washburn House becomes your home for a period of time. Here, your sole focus is recovery. Without the distractions of work and home life, you can get the most out of substance abuse treatment.
This is vital when you’re struggling with addiction because it’s easy to relapse early in recovery. Spending the first weeks after detox in a residential treatment center helps you avoid the temptations that led you to addiction. As you stay engaged in treatment, you’ll learn skills that help you stay focused on your recovery once you return home.
What Is Inpatient Drug & Alcohol Rehab Like at Washburn House?
Washburn House’s program is managed by clinicians, including doctors, nurses, and mental health professionals. They provide care, tools, and resources to help you move forward in addiction recovery.
Group and Individual Therapy Take Center Stage
We believe strongly in the power of community, so group therapy plays a core role in drug addiction treatment. Addiction science has proved that community makes a significant difference in how people manage their recovery. Members of a community help each other through recovery, learn from each other, and motivate one another to succeed. The more engaged you are in the community, the more engaged you are in your longterm recovery.
That’s why we provide at least 10 hours of group therapy every week. You’ll also take part in 15 hours of psycho-education groups.
Individual attention is also important, so you’ll have at least three individual therapy sessions every week.
Choose Your Own Treatment Path
Another core part of addiction treatment is having choices for how to do it best. Since every client is different, we offer a variety of elective classes and activities, including active and creative options.
Some examples include:
- Poetry or journaling
- Music therapy
- Book club
We believe in mental health innovation. Your life isn’t stagnant; your recovery shouldn’t be either! We’re always working to introduce new methods, classes, and activities to help you succeed.
We combine this with our focus on community by offering groups that focus on life skills, like managing finances and developing healthy relationships. You’ll also work on relapse-prevention skills, such as identifying and managing triggers that can cause a relapse.
Does Insurance Cover Inpatient Care?
We know recovery is hard. We don’t want financial worries to distract you from your focus, so we make paying for our inpatient drug rehab program simple.
Washburn House accepts most private insurance plans.
Don’t have private insurance? We also accept direct payments. If you have questions, call us!
What Happens When I Arrive at Washburn House?
You’ll be assessed by our medical and mental health professional team. They’ll determine your treatment options and what your recovery needs are.
Then you’ll be assigned a clinician and a case manager to work with you while you’re at Washburn House. Your treatment team will support you as you work toward recovery, ensuring you have the resources you need to succeed.
Live On-Site at Washburn House
Washburn House is a comfortable home away from home, where you’ll spend every day working on your recovery. You’ll be in the company of other people just like you, who are dealing with the same sorts of problems. We’re located in Worcester MA, less than an hour from downtown Boston. Our treatment facility is also less than 30 minutes from Rhode Island.
Our residential addiction treatment center houses 32 men and women in separate wings. The rooms come as singles, doubles, or triples, with their own private bathrooms.
Along with therapy and activity rooms, Washburn house has a 3D theater and a common area game room for relaxing.
Do I Have to Do Anything Before Getting Inpatient Care?
Before starting an inpatient drug and alcohol rehab program, it’s important that you are medically stable. For some people, this means they’ll have completed a drug and alcohol detox program. You can detox at a hospital or other facility, at home, or through our own drug detox program. In this program, a medical and clinical team supports you as you withdraw.
We recommend detoxing at Washburn House because your transition to further inpatient rehab will be smooth. You’ll already be familiar with your living arrangements and the Washburn House family. Making things simple and comfortable helps you focus on your recovery and getting better.
Support for Your Family
As you struggled with your addiction, your loved ones have been going through a tough time too. When they feel supported, they’re better able to support you! When appropriate, your case worker or therapist may recommend sessions that help you and your family members support one another and heal together.
What Happens After I Complete the Inpatient Drug Rehab Program?
Most people are in our inpatient treatment program for 17 to 21 days, but some take more time to work on their recovery. Everyone is different, and there’s no right length of time to take. When you and your care team feel confident in the skills you’ve built and the recovery you’ve started, you’ll know you’re ready to move on to the next level of care
Once you’ve completed inpatient drug and alcohol rehab, you have several options to continue your recovery:
Both focus on continuing recovery, attending group and individual therapy, and learning relapse-prevention strategies and life skills. You can live in Washburn House’s sober living community or return home and commute to Washburn House to access these services.
We believe it’s important that everyone who completes our inpatient substance abuse treatment program leaves with a plan in place, so we’ll work with you to figure out the right next steps for your recovery. Together with your case manager, you’ll decide on the best option to help you along your new path.
Challenge Yourself to Start Your Recovery
When you’re struggling with an addiction, it’s hard to see that any other kind of life is possible. Living with addiction makes your world feel small because the addiction itself becomes more important than anything else.
Washburn House can help you expand your world again. You’ll learn how to manage the problems that lead you to addiction and make sure addiction stays in the past.
