Our Inpatient Rehab Phoenix Programs

Get JCAHO-Accredited Residential Rehab Programs at Changes

When you’re ready to seek help for substance abuse, you may want to first consider inpatient rehab. Phoenix is home to many recovery centers like Changes Healing Center that can help you chart your course to sober living. But what can you gain from residential treatment?

An inpatient treatment program allows you to have an easier and safer detox from drugs and alcohol. You also get constant access to support staff and peers for encouragement to stick with a treatment plan. Structure and routine occupy your time and allow you to focus on yourself and your close family.

Changes Healing Center has a Joint Commission-accredited addiction treatment program that offers care at every level from inpatient to less structured outpatient programs. We’re in-network with many insurance providers including AHCCCS and AIHP.

Why Should You Consider Inpatient Treatment for Drug and Alcohol Addiction?

Taking the first steps to get help for a substance use issue can be a scary prospect. Inpatient rehab programs have an array of benefits that allow you to focus on getting sober.

Here are some of the many reasons why you should seek help from an accredited recovery center such as our offerings at Changes.

Supervision for Withdrawal Symptoms and Medical Detox

Oftentimes, the first step when you enroll in alcohol or drug rehab services is to allow the chemicals to get out of your system. A medical detox ensures that you remain safe throughout the process. Instead of going it alone, you have a team of medical professionals who can keep you comfortable and ensure that you don’t abuse substances while detoxing.

The withdrawal symptoms during detox can be extremely uncomfortable and potentially very severe. A doctor can use medication-assisted treatment to counteract those symptoms. Common symptoms are often greatly reduced, including nausea and vomiting, sleep disturbances, and more.

Medical Detox

Around-the-Clock Access to Support Staff

One of the biggest benefits of our inpatient rehab centers in Phoenix is that you gain access to support staff at any hour of the day or night. There are always counselors and medical professionals who can help you talk through a difficult situation or implement new coping skills. All you have to do is ask for the support.

Even if you never intend to use this service, it often provides comfort for clients to know that the staff is available and willing to work with them under these circumstances.

Structure and Routine to Keep You Occupied

When are you most susceptible to dwelling on the idea of substance abuse? For many clients, the urge to use again strikes when they have nothing else to occupy their time or their minds. Research proves that unused time is ripe for substance use.

When you leave a rehab facility, you’ll have to learn how to cope with boredom and downtime.

Right now, you can enjoy a packed schedule that keeps you busy from morning till night. You will attend individual therapy, support groups, and complementary therapies that equip you with new coping skills, life skills, and the language to ask for the help you need. For example, you may participate in art therapy, music therapy, and even yoga to occupy your time.

Combined with 24/7 access to care, you’ll have limited time on your hands to think about your past drug or alcohol abuse.

Ability to Focus on You and Healthier Relationships

Unlike an outpatient rehab, you have more time to focus on your own healing when you attend inpatient rehab programs. You don’t have to consider the thoughts or feelings of loved ones. Better yet, you have space from toxic relationships that might trigger future substance use.

Your ability to focus solely on why you entered treatment and why you want to maintain sobriety is key.

As part of a robust inpatient program, you will likely also work with your family and close friends so that they understand your addiction and how to best help you move forward. Family therapy opens the door to new communication where you can make amends and ask for long-term help and support so that you stay sober.

Access to Supportive Peers in Group Therapy

Supportive Peers in Group Therapy

When you enroll in our alcohol and drug rehab center, you’ll be surrounded by other people who have similar issues and can commiserate with your experience. Your peers are around at all times, even between the scheduled sessions of group therapy. This allows you to forge strong connections based on a shared desire to heal.

Some of these friendships may even extend past your stay in rehab centers, giving you the incentive to stay clean past discharge.

Additionally, you’ll also have access to 12-step groups that provide a proven methodology for helping you stay sober and awaken your spiritual life. You’ll admit that you’re powerless over your addiction, make amends to those you harmed, and evaluate what you need to move forward with sobriety. You don’t have to be religious to benefit from 12-step programs.

Receive a Mental Health Assessment for Dual Diagnosis

Did you know that one in four adults with a mental health concern also have a substance use issue? According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, this phenomenon of co-occurring conditions is more common than many people realize.

Dual diagnoses can include anxiety, trauma, mood disorders, schizophrenia, and more. The best way to diagnose an underlying condition that contributes to substance abuse is to submit to testing and even monitoring by medical staff. They can observe your struggles and get to the bottom of your concerns in a safe and therapeutic setting.

At this point, they may also offer medication-assisted treatment to minimize your symptoms and make you more comfortable. With mental health issues under control, you may have an easier time abstaining from drugs and alcohol.

Aftercare Planning Following Our Inpatient Rehab Phoenix Services

Inpatient rehab isn’t the end of the road for alcohol or drug addiction. Once you graduate from your residential treatment program, you’ll likely transition to outpatient treatment and aftercare services. Phoenix is home to many excellent services such as sober living homes, 12-step meetings for AA and NA, SMART Recovery meetings, and more.

Not to mention, many inpatient rehab programs also have an alumni program where they sponsor regular events for those who have graduated and committed to long-term sobriety. It can be a great way to get to know new people who already share something in common.

Benefits of Residential Addiction Treatment at Changes Healing Center

Residential Addiction Treatment

Drug and alcohol addiction are serious concerns, and you should entrust your care to professionals who have the experience needed to guide you toward recovery. You may enjoy the benefits of receiving our comprehensive care services at Changes Healing Center.

Here are a few reasons why you might consider us for your inpatient treatment program.

Joint Commission Accreditation for High-Quality Care

When you enroll in substance abuse treatment, make sure you are in good hands with a facility that is held to the highest standards. The Joint Commission is the gold standard for patient care in the rehab facility world, and Changes is proud to be a Joint Commission-accredited facility.

To achieve this high honor, treatment programs must adhere to all standards from OSHA and CMS at a minimum. They must also meet the Joint Commission’s own set of stringent guidelines for patient care and safety. It’s an objective evaluation that also clues us into ways that we can improve the experience of our clients.

The goal is consistently excellent care for all. To achieve this, care is reviewed and surveyed every two to three years to ensure that everything is up to date.

Many people delay seeking treatment for drug and alcohol addiction because they’re worried about the out-of-pocket costs. The good news is that Changes Healing Center is in-network with many private health insurance plans including:
