After completing the medical detox component of addiction treatment, some addicts will have underlying mental health issues surface in the absence of drugs or alcohol. Others may have physical ailments which need to be stabilized. Lakeview Health’ inpatient drug rehab allows the addict to remain in a higher level of care, under the supervision of medical staff, while mood or health concerns are addressed.
Physical and mental ailments can make it extremely difficult to focus while going through residential treatment. When an addict is suffering from a dual diagnosis, mental health and/or physical condition in addition to an addiction, an integrated approach is essential to successful treatment. The addict should have some relief from both physical and mental health symptoms before moving forward in a rehab program.
One goal in our inpatient drug rehab facility is to create an environment where the addict or alcoholic is comfortable while being carefully monitored. Doctors, nurses and therapists are able to immediately respond to disturbances in a patient’s emotional or physical state, such as sleep deprivation or increased anxiety. This quick response can prevent a downward spiral and stop the addict from destructive behavior, such as leaving before stabilization and completion of addiction treatment.
The patient’s ability to remain clean, identify triggers for addiction, and learn how to manage those triggers is imperative and a product of a successful therapeutic environment. Lakeview Health’ inpatient drug rehabilitation offers timely interventions and daily monitoring, assisting the addict in feeling comfortable, safe and secure during the medical and mental health stabilization process.
