Getting help for drug or alcohol addiction shouldn’t be complicated — but it can sometimes be a more confusing process than we would like. There are different levels of treatment and different approaches to recovery care, and you might initially feel like you are unsure which one is right for you. At Pinnacle Recovery in Utah, we want to make the choice to get treatment easy. We can help you navigate your options and guide you to the best type of care for your needs.

Our Inpatient Program is designed to be adaptable for a wide range of clients. We treat many different types of addictions, offer flexible program length and provide a variety of therapeutic modalities that can be customized to the individual. Inpatient treatment is the cornerstone of our recovery programming, providing the most intensive and thorough treatment in a supportive, sober environment focused on recovery.

What Is An Inpatient Drug And Alcohol Rehab Center?

Inpatient drug and alcohol treatment, sometimes called residential treatment, refers to any long-term treatment program where the client lives onsite for the duration of their stay. These programs provide the 24-hour care that clients need in order to ensure they have the best possible chance at recovery. Inpatient drug and alcohol rehab centers like the one at Pinnacle Recovery also make sure that clients are safe in a substance-free and supportive environment while they adjust to sobriety and work on their independent living skills. If you are actively struggling with addiction and want to get clean and sober, an inpatient drug and alcohol treatment program is likely your best option.

How Long Does Inpatient Addiction Treatment Take?

The typical length of stay in this type of program can vary depending on the severity of the addiction, but the majority of inpatient programs last between 30 and 90 days. Studies have shown that it takes about 30 days to break the habit of addiction and regain firm footing in sobriety, so we typically recommend planning for at least one month in residential treatment.

In addition, the more time you can commit to this first stage of recovery, the better, particularly if you have been dealing with an intense addiction or have been addicted for some time. At Pinnacle Recovery, we do not set hard limits on how long our clients can stay in our programs — we simply want you to take the time you need to make a full recovery. You will have a better chance at sustaining your sobriety in independent life if you dedicate the right amount of time to your inpatient treatment.

Do I Need Inpatient Addiction Treatment?

Outpatient drug and alcohol recovery — treatment that does not require you to live at a treatment center — may be many people’s first choice when it comes to addiction treatment. It seems easier; it can fit into your schedule, it takes up less time than residential treatment and it does not interrupt your daily life. But for many people who struggle with addiction, an interruption is exactly what they need — and inpatient treatment can be the best way to break the cycle of addiction.

Addiction seeps into your life and becomes part of your routine. For many people, the comfortable habit of using drugs or alcohol — to unwind after a long day, to help them feel more confident in social settings or otherwise — leads to substance abuse and addiction over time. So, while outpatient treatment is often a valuable transitional or aftercare option, choosing it at the outset of recovery may not be enough. Seeking part-time treatment and living at home means you will still have access to drugs and alcohol; you may still be living in a place that is not supportive of your journey to recovery or you may be trying to balance your recovery with work or family responsibilities. You may still have too many opportunities to fall back into bad patterns.
Some people who suffer from addiction will find that they are unable to get sober by simply attending an outpatient program. They will find that this type of program is not intensive enough for them and does not have the structure and support they need to prevent relapse. Drug addiction and alcoholism are strong foes — but residential treatment can help. Our inpatient drug and alcohol rehab center offers a place for everyone to finally overcome their addiction free from outside stressors, pressures and temptations.

Benefits of Residential Treatment

By living onsite for the duration their stay, a client who attends an inpatient rehab will have 24-hour access to support and care. If in the middle of the night, they wake up and find that they have an insatiable craving to use, they will not only be in a safe and drug-free environment where they can pause before acting on their urges, but they will also have peers and professional clinicians available to talk to about how they are feeling.
Clients will also have the ability to create a supportive recovery community for themselves because they are surrounded by other individuals who are also on the road to changing their lives. This is often crucial to a person’s recovery because being able to relate to others fosters communal growth and helps to remove the isolating effect of addiction.

This type of program is also conducive to the recovery process because you will have a structured schedule, experiential treatments and individual and group therapies, all while taking a much-needed break from living in the environment in which you used drugs or alcohol. This latter part is essential in the recovery process because many people suffering from addiction are exposed to it at home. They have spent a majority of their addiction using at home, and their friends or loved ones may be using substances as well. By being away from this environment and in a recovery-centric one, a person has a much higher chance of achieving recovery and thereby changing their life for the better.

What To Expect At Our Inpatient Drug And Alcohol Rehab Center

Inpatient treatment in Salt Lake City, Utah is one of our specialties at Pinnacle Recovery. We offer comprehensive, customizable care for adults who are struggling with addiction to drugs or alcohol at our beautiful facilities in Utah. Upon admission to our programs, we assign you a case manager who will get to know you, work directly with you to monitor your progress and create your treatment plan. Since each individual who suffers from addiction is different, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to addiction treatment. Some of our clients may need a treatment program that focuses on childhood trauma, while others may require a dual diagnosis approach to treatment. Each person who comes into recovery does so with their own experience and characteristics; understanding this, we offer a personalized approach, with carefully selected staff who make sure every client is treated like family, with love and understanding.

Our new facility is custom-built for inpatient rehab, with lodging that focuses on comfort, privacy and expansive outdoor grounds. Our patients have plenty of room to heal and our location could not be better. We find that being surrounded by nature gives a peaceful atmosphere, and offers a beautiful place to heal and explore. Many times when a person comes into treatment they are at a low spot in their life. They are more than likely experiencing a tremendous amount of guilt, shame and anxiety about their current situation, but by having access to the wonders of nature, these feelings can be curbed and can be replaced with peace and serenity. Whether you’re a local or coming from out of state, our Utah center offers a breathtaking mountain landscape, fresh air and the best location possible for a secluded, peaceful stay.
