There are many Inpatient Drug Rehabilitation programs and facilities available. In-patient drug rehab is referring to a program in which the addict stays at the facility. The programs are typically either short-term or long-term programs. A short term in-patient program runs for approximately 28 days, a long-term in-patient program can run from 30 days up to one year.
Inpatient Drug Rehabilitation programs provide a safe environment for addicts to learn to take back control of their lives. The drug rehab centers have professional staff members that are qualified to deal with drug addiction treatment, many of these programs also have ex-addicts on staff. This allow the addict to be free from temptation and surrounded by people who truly do understand what the are experiencing, before they have acquired all the skills necessary to transition back into society.
