Effective Inpatient Treatment
A well-handled Effective Inpatient Treatment stay saves everyone time and money, particularly if the medically necessary services are performed in the right setting at the lowest cost. It’s no surprise that inpatient care is the focus of many quality improvement initiatives by both MCOs and physicians, and has been a source of significant length-of-stay reductions.

Inpatient treatment can be used to treat a variety of conditions including substance use disorders, psychiatric disorders and chronic health problems. The goal is to help patients learn to change deeply rooted behaviors in order to achieve long-term recovery. Inpatient treatment offers a more immersive experience than outpatient treatment. While some inpatient facilities may be clinical and sterile, others offer home-like apartments or houses with amenities like pools, flat screen TVs and on-site laundry. Patients receive one-on-one therapy, group therapy and family therapy sessions along with educational, recovery/12 step activity and experiential sessions.
One study found that patients who received inpatient versus outpatient treatment had better outcomes. However, the small number of studies and their varied design make it difficult to determine whether the superiority is real or due to other factors. In general, studies of residential treatment are more robust than those that compare different types of interventions, but there is a need for more research in this area.
