Inpatient rehabilitation treatment at Wilmington Treatment Center is often one of the most meaningful periods of care during a patient’s stay with us. During inpatient rehabilitation, patients live at Wilmington and benefit from a 24-hour supportive, structured atmosphere. This environment is ideal for those who require a structured, drug-free environment, as well as those in need of medical supervision.
During inpatient rehab, patients benefit from a number of interventions, which may include:
- Individual therapy
- Family therapy
- Group Therapy
- Medication management
- Our Recreational Therapy Program
Regular individual, family, and group therapy sessions all provide opportunities for our patients to be supported and support each other as well as begin building skills for lives free from the influence of substances and symptoms of co-occurring mental health disorders. Medication management services are designed to assist patients who require medications to manage the symptoms of mental and physical issues.
Patients’ time in inpatient rehabilitation follows a regular daily schedule. After breakfast, each patient attends a community meeting, morning lecture, and groups. After lunch, they attend more groups, including our Life Stages Groups and organized recreation. After dinner, patients engage in regular AA/NA meetings before bed.
Inpatient rehab at Wilmington comprises a number of specialized interventions, including:
Life Stages Groups: These groups are specially designed to take into account the needs of people in different stages of life. They address each person’s needs in a developmentally appropriate manner that incorporates empirically based interventions and modern teaching techniques. The Young Adult Group addresses the needs of patients aged 18 to 30 and incorporates technology, teamwork, and modern teaching techniques. Young Adult Groups are typically two hours in length and cover one topic per session; topics include communication, relapse prevention, and mental health issues such as anxiety or depression. The Middle Adult Group focuses on incorporating life experiences into the therapeutic process, with group members working in teams or subgroups to develop solutions for handling age-specific situations that could compromise their efforts to remain sober.
Recreational Therapy Program: Based on the idea that quality, substance-free recreation can be a powerful aid to a sober lifestyle, the Recreational Therapy Program at Wilmington is designed to build patients’ healthy leisure skills. The program begins with a leisure assessment and consists of multiple weekly recreation times designed to expose patients to the joy and pleasure of drug-free recreational activities.
Typically lasting up to 28 days, our treatment programming at Wilmington is open to men and women aged 18 and older who have primary substance use disorders, though we also welcome individuals who have primary substance use disorders and other co-occurring mental health disorders. Patients who complete inpatient residential care often move into our step-down partial hospitalization program and intensive outpatient program.
