Inpatient Drug Rehab

Patients in our residential drug treatment program live full-time at The Recovery Village at Ridgefield as they begin the road back to health. This helps remove them from the chaos of everyday life, allowing for a clearer focus on recovery.

Our inpatient rehab program allows you to recover in a safe environment alongside those who know your struggle — peers and staff alike. We maintain a low patient-to-staff ratio, so you receive more independent therapies than you would at many other drug rehab centers.

What is Residential Treatment Like?

Man speaking with his rehab therapist.When you arrive, you will immediately start safely detoxing under close medical supervision. Alcohol detox usually lasts from 7–10 days; drug detox duration varies widely — from several days to several weeks — based upon the substance at hand. This period is often rather uncomfortable, but the real work can begin after your drug or alcohol detox.

How long you stay with us is ultimately determined by your treatment team and your insurance company, but residential treatment programs typically last for at least one month. Whatever the duration of your stay with us, here are some important elements of life at our Ridgefield campus.


Drug rehabilitation isn’t a vacation, and we’re not trying to paint it as one. However, recovery is much easier when you’re comfortable. Expect to have a cozy bed, warm and personal touches throughout your room, a private bathroom and plenty of natural light. Since we treat both men and women, living areas are separated by gender.

During detox, each patient’s clothing and linens are laundered for them and housekeepers take care of daily cleaning. Thereafter, patients tidy up their own living spaces, and can use the onsite laundry facilities. Retaining these real world responsibilities during treatment helps to ease the transition out of rehab.

Our patients are exposed to a variety of therapeutic methods, both traditional and evidence-based. On a given week, you will get a medical checkup, have several one-on-one meetings with your primary therapist, and participate in group therapy sessions. Patients also engage in recreational therapies such as art, music or sports therapy.

This balanced approach allows us to treat addiction holistically, and help you towards sustained recovery.

Recreation & Wellness

Recovery is about restoring balance to your life, and that includes the activities you love. We have an onsite gym, basketball court and yoga classes so you can stay fit while you’re in addiction treatment. You can grab a board game to play with some other patients and staff. (Sobriety bingo is a big hit around here.)

With your treatment team’s permission, you may be able to occasionally venture off campus for the likes of laser tag and bowling nights, or an afternoon hike in the beautiful Oregon or Washington mountains.

Inpatient vs. Outpatient Rehab

Adults sitting in a group therapy session.There is no one-size-fits-all treatment plan for people suffering from addiction. Some patients require residential treatment while others are better served in an outpatient setting. Only a medical professional can prescribe the best course of treatment.

Though residential rehab provides round-the-clock care, those in outpatient also receive a high level of accountability and structure. As a patient in our partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient program, you still have full access to our doctors, nurses, counselors and therapists — with the flexibility of living at home.

After our thorough and thoughtful assessment, we’ll determine the right level of care for you. Whether you do inpatient or outpatient, our staff is fully invested in your recovery — from admission to aftercare.

Residential Treatment: Inpatient Rehab

Patients who are enrolled in our residential or inpatient addiction rehab program will live at The Recovery Village at Ridgefield 24 hours a day. In the facility, they will be able to dedicate time specifically to healing.

In our inpatient drug rehab, you will be able to begin your recovery journey in a safe and stable environment along with others who understand what you are going through. With our low patient-to-staff ratio, you will be given more independent treatment than you may receive at other treatment centers.

Inpatient Drug Treatment: What Can I Expect?

After arrival, patients will immediately begin medically assisted detox if necessary. The substance you are currently addicted to will determine the length of the detox process. Alcohol detox, for example, typically lasts 7-10 days whereas detox for other substances can be anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. While this is typically an uncomfortable process, having supervision from medical professionals makes it much easier. After detox is complete, the real work of recovery can begin.

Everyone has an individualized treatment plan so each person may stay for a different amount of time. This can also depend upon your insurance company. Typically, inpatient drug treatment programs can last at least one month.


When you are going for inpatient alcohol rehab or drug rehab, it’s not a vacation. We don’t try to portray it as such, but we do know that starting your recovery journey is going to be a much easier process when you are in a comfortable environment. Patients can expect a comfortable bed, a private bathroom and many personal and warm touches throughout each patient’s room. Living areas are separated by gender as we do treat both women and men.

Throughout detox, each patient’s linens and clothing are laundered for them. Also, housekeepers will take care of the day-to-day cleaning. After detox, patients will clean up their own living spaces and have the option to use laundry facilities on site.


Three delicious, properly balanced meals are prepared by our private chef each day. We also will accommodate food restrictions and intolerances. For patients who also have eating disorders, specialized treatment will be given in this area.


We take a balanced, multidisciplinary approach to treatment, and each patient in inpatient rehab will have a variety of therapeutic methods. These are both traditional in nature and evidence-based methods. Patients will receive medical checkups, individual therapy and group therapy sessions throughout the week. Recreational therapies like music, art and sports therapy are also available and encouraged.

Wellness & Recreation

Living a balanced life involves activities that help you to stay physically and mentally fit. We have an onsite gym, yoga classes and a basketball court so that patients can stay fit throughout inpatient addiction rehab. Recreational activities like board games are also popular during treatment.

Is Inpatient Rehab for You?

Each patient that suffers from drug and/or alcohol addiction may require a different plan of treatment. While residential treatment is the best course of action for many patients, outpatient rehab is a better option for some patients. The only way you will be able to determine the best treatment option for you is to discuss your situation with an addiction specialist.

Inpatient drug or alcohol addiction treatment means care around the clock from addiction specialists and healthcare professionals. However, outpatient treatment also has a high level of structure. Patients who participate in our intensive outpatient programs or our partial hospitalization programs still have access to the same activities and highly trained staff as our residential patients.

Inpatient Rehab or Outpatient Rehab?

If you or someone you love is struggling with substance use disorder, there is no better time to receive treatment than right now. Residential treatment is not for everyone.
