Hospital Inpatient - Hilo, Hawaii

A person who is seriously addicted to drugs or alcohol will benefit tremendously by receiving treatment from a hospital inpatient program. These types of programs are focused towards physical health, mental health and medical stabilization. Recovering persons will have access to medication as well as medical staff around the clock. While not every drug addict needs this level of care, it is useful to those who have severe physical addiction problems to drugs or alcohol. Hospital inpatient programs often last several days to several weeks. Once the hospital inpatient part of their recovery is complete they may choose to enter a sober living program or transfer into an outpatient program.
