Inpatient Alcohol and Drug Rehab Programs
Gateway offers inpatient drug rehab and alcohol treatment programs to help guide those suffering from a substance use disorder through the recovery process in a supportive and safe environment. Our residential substance abuse treatment programs provide patients with the knowledge, therapy, counseling and tools needed to enjoy a life free from addiction.
What Is Inpatient Alcohol and Drug Rehab?
Most alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs have two approaches to treatment: inpatient and outpatient. While outpatient rehab involves regular treatment at an addiction treatment center, it's set up so that patients go home at the end of the day. Meanwhile, inpatient programs require patients to live at the rehab center for a set amount of time—usually between two and four weeks.
Gateway's inpatient alcohol and drug rehab program is specially designed to help patients navigate some of the more difficult moments of recovery as their minds and bodies go through many different, and sometimes painful, changes. With 24/7 availability of Gateway's staff, our inpatient drug rehab programs provide the safety and stability needed to maintain sobriety.
On-site medical staff can also provide medication-assisted treatment to aid in detox and withdrawal management.
Benefits of Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Treatment Centers
Choosing between inpatient and outpatient treatment is a highly personal decision based on an individual's needs and addiction severity. Patients can consider how long they have suffered, how often they use, and whether they have other co-occurring conditions. Choosing inpatient treatment has a few clear benefits:
- 24-hour care creates an immersive treatment experience away from potential distractions and triggers. This allows patients to focus fully on recovering.
- Supervised detox and medication administration are available, when needed.
- Most alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers offer a full inpatient schedule. This helps keep patients focused on recovery while offering access to additional therapeutic treatments such as exercise and meditation.
Care is personalized, taking into account the patient's history, lifestyle and health issues. Gateway also provides gender- and age- specific treatment, so men, women and adolescents have plans tailored to their needs. We also offer treatment for patients with dual diagnosis or co-occurring conditions—those who are suffering from both a mental health and substance use disorder.
The Residential Substance Abuse Treatment Experience
Living onsite at Gateway, individuals receive 24/7 support and the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the recovery process with few distractions. The duration of treatment is dependent on the extent of a person's substance use disorder and their dedication to recovery. With inpatient drug rehab, patients generally engage in treatment over two to four weeks.

Life After Inpatient Rehab
Once stabilized and fully engaged in treatment, patients become candidates for transition into a less-intense level of care than inpatient drug rehab, such as Day Treatment or Outpatient Treatment. After a program is completed, Gateway supports recovery success with weekly aftercare sessions, including counseling sessions and involvement in a 12-step program.
According to the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD), because addiction is typically a chronic disease, most patients need long-term or repeated episodes of care to achieve lasting recovery. Although relapse may be part of the process that patients should be prepared for, continued alcohol or drug counseling can help prevent relapse.
