Dallas Texas Inpatient Rehab
What is Inpatient Rehab?
Once the medical detox process is complete and the person suffering from addiction becomes physically sober, it is recommended that they enter into a residential or inpatient program. A residential program is the highest level of care that an alcoholic or addict can receive. While every patient is different, each treatment plan shares specific methods.
At the outset of the admission process, the patient is thoroughly evaluated, and an individualized treatment plan is created. Residents are typically recommended treatment that is individually designed to meet their specific needs, therefore, may vary in length. The patient will step down to a lower level of care after the initial inpatient level of care (detox & inpatient residential). During the Inpatient period, our Riverwalk Ranch drug & alcohol treatment center will provide:
- 24 hour/day monitoring by addiction treatment specialist
- Medication management
- Education on addiction
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- A set of treatment goals
- Equine Therapy
Why Inpatient Rehabs Are Successful
Participants in inpatient rehab programs have the highest success rate of long-term recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. The highly structured residential setting allows patients to reassess their past behavioral patterns free from outside influences. Family members of residents can breathe freely, knowing that their loved ones have the structure and support of trained professionals to help them stay safe and sober. Inpatient rehab centers offer quality support and will lay down the foundation for relapse prevention.
Treatment options for substance use disorders vary for each person. This is because addiction affects people differently. An individualized treatment plan is created for clients while they are participating in inpatient rehab. This is important as the individualized treatment will target the unique needs of each patient. Individualized treatment is provided for patients whether or not they choose an inpatient program. However, coupled together, they offer more support for successful rehabilitation.
Along with individualized treatment, staying at an inpatient rehab will provide support groups through therapeutic communities. This community that consists of other residents and staff offers another aspect to inpatient treatment. According to an article published by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, "Addiction is viewed in the context of an individual's social and psychological deficits, and treatment focuses on developing personal accountability and responsibility as well as socially productive lives." By providing a support system and creating a healthy social environment through an inpatient program, patients can begin to rebuild their lives.
Inpatient Program Vs. Outpatient Program
Intensive outpatient programs do not require the client to stay on the property. They live at home while visiting the treatment facility during the day or evening. An outpatient program is an excellent option for those who are unable to leave or suspend their other commitments. It allows them the opportunity to stay in school or remain at their workplaces, as well as fulfill personal obligations. Although outpatient programs could be considered more convenient, that does not mean it is the best option for everyone.
Inpatient programs require the patient to remain on the facility fulltime and have minimal contact with the rest of the world. This is often the right choice for patients who are unable to resist the temptation of using drugs and alcohol. While less convenient than an outpatient program, inpatient treatment provides more security. It also gives those who struggle with substance abuse boundaries that they would not otherwise have. This is especially true for people who have gone through medical detox. Once the damaging substance has left the body, the mind must be re-taught how to reward the body for natural healthy behavior. It is for this reason that it is best to go through an inpatient rehab after detox.
Our Dallas, Texas Residential Treatment Center
Visitors at Riverwalk Ranch are greeted by a warm, welcoming staff in a large residential facility. Clients undergoing onsite treatment are required to live in our comfortable Dallas Texas inpatient rehab facility. Residential treatment is appropriate for clients who need the support of both medical and clinical services.

To provide the most effective and thorough inpatient treatment for long-term recovery, Riverwalk divides clients into smaller, comprehensive groups. It is allowing for focused attention and tailored treatment based on the individual needs of each client. Placement is based on age, substance abuse history, and other factors that may affect the recovery process, such as co-occurring mental health issues.
Our drug and alcohol residential treatment programs focus on individualized client care. Riverwalk Ranch clients will participate in various types of group, individual, and recreational therapies. Including participating in social events, activities, therapy, and different other treatments throughout the day. These therapies are designed to help clients overcome their addictions. Our medical professionals and staff develop individualized treatment plans for the specific needs of each client.
Additional Benefits of an Inpatient Rehab Program
Inpatient rehab programs allow patients a chance to take a step away from the people, places, and things that contribute to their addictive behavior. Within the residential environment, patients are provided three healthy meals a day, eight hours of sleep, and are free from everyday stresses. We create an environment that encourages clients not to give in to temptations. Relapse prevention is one of our main goals and is at the center of all our recovery programs. With the types of treatment Riverwalk provides, we can successfully create a healthy lifestyle for our clients.
Once our patients acclimate to this setting, they will not only enjoy the support of our staff but their fellow patients as well. There is a direct correlation between therapeutic communities and an addict's ability to stay sober. The kinship shared by patients living together in a residential facility gives them the accountability and community necessary to remain sober after they leave treatment.
