No Access to Drugs – The only drugs that exist in our inpatient program are used purely for medical purposes and are safely stored in secure locations. They are only distributed by licensed staff members and only for treatment purposes.
24 Hour Support – Many patients will experience various withdrawal symptoms during day and night. Similarly, patients who are past withdrawal are likely to experience anxiety or depression, which may be higher at night. In our facility, we have licensed staff available to deal with these problems 24 hours a day.
Removal of Stress Triggers – Many times, addiction is the result of stress. Stress is a common cause for drug abuse relapses. Within the Inspire Malibu care facility, patients are removed from most of the stress triggers that plague their daily lives, which helps increase the success rate of the treatment.
Clear Metric for Success – In an outpatient program, there is no clear metric for success because treatment is intertwined with everyday life. A patient can relapse repeatedly yet still remain within the program. Residential patients understand that initial treatment ends when they leave the facility. The patient may still undergo therapy, engage in group activities, or use techniques learned during treatment even after leaving Inspire Malibu.
Additionally, while inpatient drug rehab care is designed to shield the patient from the outside world, that doesn’t mean our treatment can’t take advantage of the support network of our patients. Through monitored visits and patient-specific designed treatment, we can include family or friends in the healing process.
