What to Expect in Inpatient Addiction Treatment

is often the next level of rehab care after a medical detox program, or the first step for those who don’t need detox.

It’s also the most intensive level of rehab treatment, with patients living at our Mississippi inpatient rehab facility and receiving access to round-the-clock care from on-staff doctors, nurses, and counselors.

During residential rehab, participants reside in semi-private cabins and attend 4–6 hours of therapy per day.

Our Mississippi inpatient rehab program offers diverse programming, including a range of addiction recovery services and therapies, such as individual, group, and family therapy. Staff at our inpatient rehab facility in Mississippi uses clinically proven approaches like motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) to help build motivation for recovery and promote positive change.

Holistic therapies like art and music therapy, yoga, and meditation are also available during the inpatient rehab program, as well as Oxford’s popular equine program, which gives patients the chance to ride and connect with our facility’s 19 horses.

As needed, Oxford Treatment Center offers medication for addiction treatment (MAT). MAT involves the use of medications to manage cravings and help prevent relapse.1 While not appropriate for everyone, this treatment approach can help improve outcomes in some people recovering from addiction.

Please note: Cell phone and computer use will be restricted for the first 72 hours (cell phone use is allowed between 4-6 p.m.). After this short blackout period, patients may use their devices outside of program hours, per our cell phone and electronics policy.

How Long Does Inpatient Rehab Last?

The recommended length of stay for inpatient or residential rehab will vary based on a person’s particular needs and situation. It can range from several days to months. Generally, longer durations of treatment—whether inpatient, outpatient, or both—are associated with better outcomes, so patients have enough time to feel stable in their sobriety before returning home.2 It’s normal for a treatment plan to include multiple levels of care, and to fluctuate as a person evolves during the course of their care.

The following are some lengths of stay offered at Oxford:

  • Short-term detox & rehab: At Oxford, short-term treatment is considered anything less than 30 days. It could mean, for example, 3–5 days of detox, followed by a week of inpatient care. However, different patients will want and need different programs.
  • 30-day rehab programs: One month is a common length of stay. During this time, patients have an opportunity to learn new ways to cope with their addiction and prevent relapse.
  • 60- to 90-day addiction treatment programs: Longer rehab stays are helpful for people who do not yet feel ready to transition out of inpatient addiction treatment. A 2-3 month rehab program allows for more time to work on sobriety and hone the skills gained in rehab.

While several weeks or months can sound like a long time to spend at our inpatient rehab facility in MS, many people are still prone to strong cravings and urges in early recovery. Recovery from addiction is a long-term process, and experts often recommend continued care following inpatient treatment.

What Happens After the Inpatient Portion of Rehab?

Inpatient is just one step in a person’s journey to recovery. After residential rehab, patients are usually ready to transition to a less intensive level of care. For many, outpatient addiction treatment is the next step.

Our outpatient rehab program in Oxford, MS is located 16 miles away from its main campus in Etta. Treatment includes individual therapy, family education, case management, and daily group therapy. There are also opportunities to participate in music, art, and other alternative therapies, as well as recreational activities like sports, gardening, horseshoes, and yoga.

Outpatient rehab care is ideal for people who have completed detox and been sober for some time. Unlike inpatient treatment, outpatient participants do not stay on campus. They live at home or in a sober living residence, while continuing to attend treatment during the day.

Oxford Treatment Center offers different levels of outpatient treatment:

Resolutions Oxford, our sober living house in Mississippi, is adjacent to the outpatient center and provides many amenities to help support recovery, including apartment-style living, daily transportation to treatment, laundry facilities, and gym access.

The road to recovery is different for everyone, and there is no one-size-fits all approach to treatment.2 But an example of a traditional course of care would be to start at the inpatient level and gradually step down to PHP, IOP, and finally aftercare. Our staff works with patients to determine the appropriate level of care and timeline, and to customize a program that meets their needs.

To ensure all graduates have the support required to sustain sobriety, every person leaves Oxford with a detailed aftercare plan and is invited to join our rehab alumni community. Alumni host monthly events at Resolutions Oxford and quarterly events at the inpatient campus. Graduates also get access to our free alumni app, which tracks recovery milestones, connects participants to alumni and counselors, and provides other useful resources.
