Long-Term Inpatient Rehab Programs

Extended Treatment Options Offered at Icarus in Nevada

Icarus Behavioral Health is a leading rehab center in Nevada. We offer multiple treatment options to address mental health conditions, addiction, and dual-diagnosis disorders, some of which are more or less intensive than others. Icarus Behavioral Health offers long-term inpatient treatment in addition to standard inpatient, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, and outpatient treatment programs.

Not all treatment centers have a long-term treatment program available to clients, which is just one of the many things that sets us apart as a leader in substance abuse and mental health treatment. So, what are long-term inpatient rehab programs, and who are they for?

This article will discuss the role of long-term treatment programs and how long-term inpatient rehab programs can make a difference for those with addiction. First, we’ll discuss the role of long-term rehab and what to expect. Then, we’ll talk about the benefits of long-term rehab and covering the costs.

The Role of Long-Term Treatment Programs for Addiction and Mental Health Disorders

Role of Long-Term Treatment Program

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), 2,972 treatment centers offered long-term rehab in 2020. Despite the availability of these services, not everyone with a substance use disorder knows that they’re available.

Unfortunately, when left untreated, addiction can worsen. Especially when it comes to long-term or severe addiction, challenges such as permanent brain, liver, or kidney damage, heart disease, high blood pressure, coma, stroke, infections, legal or financial problems, and other concerns may arise. You often won’t know when these consequences are coming until they’ve already taken effect.

Many people with prolonged addictions experience frequent relapse, which is linked to an increased risk of the consequences associated with addiction. Substance use disorders can take over your life, making it hard to see a way out. This is where long-term rehab comes into play.

What are the Benefits of Long-Term Inpatient Treatment?

Diverse treatment models exist so that people can find what works for their recovery journey. Long-term rehab programs may be the right fit for you for a number of reasons.

For example, if you are someone who encounters relapse soon after traditional residential treatment or has a chronic relapse history, doesn’t feel that a shorter stay is enough, is in the criminal justice system, or has a severe addiction, long-term drug, and alcohol rehab could be a game-changer and optimal choice for you.

Change takes time. Long-term rehab programs provide around-the-clock care for extended time periods. These longer periods of supervision mean you get to rebuild your life in a safe, substance-free treatment setting with mental health and medical professionals present and ready to support you.

Effective Dual Diagnosis Programs Over Longer Periods of Time

Icarus Behavioral Health in Nevada treats substance use disorders and mental health conditions. Suppose you have a mental health disorder such as depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, an eating disorder, or another condition that co-occurs with drug and alcohol addiction. In that case, our long-term treatment programs can address both.

If you have co-occurring disorders, one of the benefits of long-term rehab is that you’ll get to work through these underlying factors and dual diagnosis concerns more thoroughly than you would in a more limited rehab program.

Since you’ll be at your rehab center for longer, you have more time to fully heal. Ultimately, this is the greatest benefit of long-term rehab. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) website states that longer treatment stays are associated with better outcomes in recovery. This has been shown repetitively in research.

All in all, it is clear that committing to long-term addiction treatment is worth it.

Knowing what to expect in long-term substance abuse treatment can make it less daunting for you or your family.

During the intake assessment, you can discuss long-term rehab and whether it’s the right fit for you.

The Role of Medical Detoxification

Most people who attend treatment for substance abuse go to medical detoxification or “detox” first. Detox can be imperative to your health and safety in some cases. When you first stop using drugs and alcohol, you may face uncomfortable and potentially dangerous symptoms.

The risk of severe or dangerous withdrawals increases for those who use substances in high amounts. If you’re looking for treatment centers with long-term rehab programs, you will likely need to attend detox first.

The role of medical detoxification programs is to help you discontinue the use of drugs and alcohol safely and with the help of medical professionals. Before you enter long-term rehab, you will likely attend medical detox for a couple of weeks or less.

Icarus Behavioral Health Nevada offers medical detox. Attending detox with us prior to your treatment program for drug or alcohol abuse means that you will be able to transition from our medical detox program to long-term rehab smoothly.

Daily Treatment Schedule and Activities

Cognitive behavioral therapy

In a long-term inpatient or residential treatment program, you will eat, sleep, and live on-site for the duration of the program. During the day, you’ll have a consistent schedule of treatments and activities. We offer extensive recreational activities and amenities for you to enjoy during your free time while in long-term substance abuse treatment at Icarus in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The extended supervision of a long-term inpatient rehab program helps you create and solidify sustainable patterns, coping skills, and everything else you need. Before you enter our long-term inpatient treatment program, we will help you prepare for treatment and go over what to bring to treatment, prohibited items, and everything else you or your family should know.

Your daily or weekly schedule for long-term treatment at Icarus Behavioral Health Nevada will include individual therapy sessions, group therapy, family therapy, and other activities.

Therapeutic modalities and treatments used may include but aren’t limited to the following:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT)
  • Skill-building and education groups
  • Multidimensional family therapy
  • Contingency management
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Medication management
  • Mindfulness groups
  • Alternative therapies

Your specific treatment schedule will depend on your personal needs. For example, if you’re in long-term rehab treatment for both substance abuse and a co-occurring disorder (e.g., an eating disorder), your treatment program will factor in therapies and interventions that address co-occurring mental health issues as well as drug abuse.

What is the Length of Long-Term Treatment Programs?

Standard addiction treatment programs tend to last for around 30-90 days. Long-term addiction treatment programs are usually defined by a treatment stay that lasts 120 days or more.

However, most long-term rehab clients need a longer treatment stay. You may stay in long-term residential treatment for anywhere from around six months to two years for optimal efficacy.

Our long-term rehab program is one of many things that sets Icarus Behavioral Health in Nevada apart as a leader in addiction treatment programs. The specific amount of time you will spend in our long-term rehab program will be determined based on factors such as symptom severity.

Aftercare and the Step-Down Approach

Aftercare planning is a critical part of any addiction treatment program. Since long-term rehab treatment is often used for severe addiction, an aftercare plan designed to help prevent relapse is extremely important.

Alongside preventing relapse, aftercare planning helps you transition back into daily life. This can be necessary when you have been in long-term treatment for any condition.

Before leaving the long-term substance abuse treatment program at Icarus Behavioral Health Nevada, you’ll work closely with staff members to make an aftercare plan with your needs in mind.

Your aftercare plan may include outpatient treatment, support groups, medication management, and work, education, or housing resources.

Paying for Long-Term Rehab Programs

Health Insurance Plan

When attending any type of addiction treatment program, cost is usually one of the first concerns that comes to mind. Regarding long-term residential treatment, you may be particularly concerned with how to cover the cost of care due to program length.

Icarus Behavioral Health Nevada accepts most health insurance plans, which can help you pay for long-term rehab. Private insurance plans we accept include but aren’t limited to Cigna, Tricare, Molina, Aetna, Evernote, BlueCross BlueShield (BCBS), Anthem Blue Cross, GEHA, and Optum are just some of the insurance providers we work with.

If you don’t have health insurance, our staff members will go over your options and may be able to help you find a solution. Financial assistance may be available.
