Inpatient Rehab for Fentanyl

When a person is struggling with a substance use disorder, receiving the appropriate level of treatment is of utmost importance. Obtaining treatment that does not adequately meet their needs can quickly compromise their overall wellbeing, putting them at risk for relapse and possibly experiencing serious—and potentially life-threatening—physical and mental health problems.

If you are addicted to fentanyl, inpatient rehab may be the right level of care you need to get sober. If so, coming to this conclusion can serve as the first step in laying the foundation for a lifetime of recovery.

Inpatient Fentanyl Rehab Programs

An inpatient rehab program provides highly structured addiction treatment for patients on a 24/7 basis.1 Those who participate in inpatient rehab will live at the treatment facility for the duration of their care, which can span anywhere between a few weeks to a year based on their specific needs and goals.1

Patients will engage in evidence-based therapies and activities designed to help them do a wide variety of things geared towards self-improvement, such as challenge their destructive patterns of behavior and replace them with more constructive ways of functioning.1

Many people who have an addiction to fentanyl may find that an inpatient rehab program is the exact level of care they need to put an end to their active addiction. Others, however, may benefit more from participating in a different level of addiction treatment.

Inpatient treatment is usually best suited for those who have a need for medical care, a safe housing option, and/or 24-hour recovery services.2 Additionally, this level of care tends to be most appropriate for those who have:2,3

  • Minimal medical or withdrawal needs.
  • Psychiatric needs, such as treatment for a co-occurring mental health condition.
  • A history of overwhelming substance use problems, including relapse.
  • Little motivation or social support to get sober.

Those interested in participating in an inpatient treatment program for fentanyl addiction can benefit from weighing these considerations during their decision-making process to ensure that this type of program is right for them.

What to Expect in Inpatient Rehab for Fentanyl

There are several ways that inpatient rehab programs can operate, and usually no two programs are the exact same. Some variations that can be seen across different inpatient programs can include what therapies and activities are offered and when, when break times occur, how frequent individual therapy sessions are each week, and so on.

At AAC, for example, we strive to develop a schedule that meets the basic needs of our patients that includes meal, recreation, and rest times, as well as including various forms of therapy to encourage a full recovery.

Our inpatient programs throughout the United States tend to follow a schedule similar to the following:

  • 7:00 a.m. – Breakfast
  • 7:45 a.m. – Meditation
  • 8:30 a.m. – Physical Wellness Training
  • 10:00 a.m. – Relapse Prevention Group
  • 12:00 p.m. – Lunch
  • 1:00 p.m. – Nutrition and Wellness Group
  • 2:00 p.m. – One-on-One Therapy
  • 3:00 p.m. – Expressive Therapies
  • 4:00 p.m. – Therapeutic Community Group
  • 5:00 p.m. – Dinner
  • 6:30 p.m. – Recovery Meeting
  • 7:30 p.m. – Structured Activities/Recreation
  • 10:00 p.m. – Lights Out

When you are in inpatient fentanyl rehab, you can expect to engage with other patients on a regular basis, as well as with the staff, which is usually comprised of a mix of medical and mental health professionals and an administrative team.

You will also have your own personalized treatment plan set forth by yourself and staff members at the facility, which can be modified as needed to continue to propel you towards your treatment goals.
