Lewiston, Maine - Hospital Inpatient

Any person who is seriously addicted to drugs or alcohol will benefit greatly by attending 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 person attempting recovery requires this level of care, it is helpful to those who have serious physical addiction problems to drugs or alcohol. Hospital inpatient programs commonly last several days to several weeks. Once the hospital inpatient portion of their treatment plan is complete they may choose to participate at a sober living program or transfer into an outpatient program.
