Many people suffer from alcohol use disorders and are unsure of the help they need to get sober. Severe intervention with rehab is sometimes the only course if your alcohol addiction is serious enough and time is of the essence.

Though there are many approaches to alcohol and drug rehab treatment, inpatient rehab is often the best route to take to effectively recover from alcoholism.

What Is Inpatient Rehab?

With inpatient alcohol rehab you are required to move into the facility and stay there for the duration of your residential treatment. You will have access to 24/7 care, be surrounded by individuals suffering from similar addictions and experience a structured recovery schedule. Meals will be provided as well as accommodation and you will attend therapy and counselling sessions.

Are There Other Options?

There are certainly other addiction rehab treatments available, as alcohol and drug addictions can be treated on an outpatient basis where you would enter alcohol or drug rehab during the day, undergo treatment and then return to your own home at night or even on a hybrid residential basis where you attend a treatment centre during the day and reside at a sober living residence between programme times.

The part-time aspect allows you to keep up life commitments such as work, school, or childcare but comes with many other complications and temptations, which is why we do not recommend it as much as inpatient treatment.

Though outpatient may sound more palatable, it is less effective than inpatient rehab when it comes to treating severe alcoholism.

Why Should I Choose Inpatient Rehab?

If you have a severe alcohol addiction, then inpatient rehab is the best choice for treatment.

Ocean Recovery, with its comfortable and calming location and a wide array of treatment options, provides an environment that is catered towards relaxation and recovery.

Undergoing inpatient treatment at a rehabilitation centre allows you to have some time away from the environment that may have fostered your addiction. If you have been living a destructive lifestyle due to addiction, this type of break is what is needed to jump-start the next phase of your life.

What Happens During Inpatient Rehab?

Ocean Recovery provides a wide array of treatment options to help you on your recovery journey. Through a combination of detox, psychological and well-being therapies, and social activities you will get clean and learn how to function sober in the outside world.


Alcohol Detoxification

This is the first step in rehab programs. Detox is the process of flushing harmful toxins from your body and ridding you of your physical dependence on substances. Medication is administered to ease the worst of withdrawal symptoms and during this time you will be under watchful medical care. Being in a safe and secure environment will make this stressful period of recovery as comfortable as it can be.


Psychological Therapies

Evidence-based therapies, where you converse in session with a professional, will make up the bulk of your time in residential rehab. These therapies focus on the root causes behind your addiction and learning to overcome and understand the psychological difficulties that are stopping you from fulfilling your potential. During your time with us, you will be expected to take part in therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, stress management and 1-1 recovery planning.


Well-Being Therapies

This type of treatment is based on increasing your psychological well-being and decreasing the chance of mental health issues such as depression arising or getting worse. Taking part in therapies such as art therapy, music therapies and mindfulness is part of a comprehensive treatment plan that works alongside the more evidence-based therapies such as cognitive behavioural therapy.


Social Activities

Despite being away from the outside world, remaining social and connecting with people is a vital part of recovery. Taking part in activities such as quiz nights, group walks, group outings and family visits will help show you that you are not alone.

Having your peers around you and understanding you have support from those in similar situations will keep you going through the dark moments.

Inpatient Rehab Aftercare

The months immediately after completing inpatient treatment can be the hardest and most vulnerable, as well as the most vital if you are in recovery. Statistically, most relapses occur within the first year after leaving a rehab centre, undoing all the time and money spent on the experience.

Ocean Recovery understands the need for planning life after rehab, so we offer a 12-month aftercare package. This programme is free and focuses on relapse prevention – helping you navigate through life after alcohol rehab.

The aftercare package consists of attending weekly support meetings, like Alcoholics Anonymous, to continue your recovery. Through these meetings, you can connect with people who also have a substance abuse disorder and build a support network that can last for years to come.

Having people around you that understand your situation means that you will feel less alone and be more open about your struggles. This may stop you from turning back to alcohol when times are tough or are suffering from depression, anxiety or other mental health issues.

Being proactive and engaged about recovery after inpatient alcohol treatment is an essential component of the recovery journey. Hopefully, it will ensure that the money and time you spent with us at Ocean Recovery was worth it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Choosing the right rehab treatment provider can be a life-changing decision; here are some of the most common questions we are asked pre-admission.

Can I detox at home?

If your alcohol intake is at a mild level then it may be possible to detox at home. By going slowly – tapering off your drinking in small increments – you can safely cease your alcohol intake. Making sure people know you are doing this so they can offer support and check on you is key to keeping you safe. It might be wise to inform your local GP as they can check in with you also. If you begin to experience more severe withdrawal symptoms then you should stop detoxing and think about getting professional help.

How much does inpatient rehab cost?

The cost of rehab varies from facility to facility. Inpatient rehab is the most expensive option as you would be using the full breadth of a facility’s resources. For a 28-day inpatient programme, you’ll probably spend between £9,000 – £15,000. This will change depending on the team at the facility, amenities ad your tailored programme, as everyone’s recovery journey is different.

What happens after inpatient rehab?

When you complete an inpatient programme with Ocean Recovery you gain access to a free 12-month aftercare package. As you ease back into your life you can attend weekly support meetings to connect with other addicts and build a support network that hopefully lasts for many years. Ultimately, what happens after rehab is up to you. Taking part in aftercare and being active in your recovery will hopefully mean that your time with us doesn’t go to waste.
