What is Inpatient Treatment for Addiction?

Inpatient treatment is the highest level of care that we offer for addiction treatment. Inpatient programs offer the most support and guidance that you can get when you’re looking for a comprehensive addiction treatment program. What this means is that guests will have 24/7 access to medical professionals and staff members, and will be under their direct supervision to ensure guests’ safety and comfort.

Inpatient Levels of Care

Addiction treatment programs can be at different levels of care, including inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment, and in-between levels— which are usually referred to as a partial hospitalization level of care. Higher levels of care include frequent interactions between guests and medical professionals, while lower levels of care have lesser of these interactions. Levels of care offer differing freedoms during addiction treatment, with inpatient treatment usually requiring guests to stay at the treatment facility while outpatient guests can come and go at their will.

Inpatient Treatment at Royal Life Centers at Spokane Heights

Royal Life Centers at Spokane Heights offers two inpatient programs, including medical detox and a residential inpatient program.


Our medical detox program lasts for either 4 or a full 8 days, for medical stabilization during the detoxification process. In our medical detox program, guests will be assessed for their symptoms of withdrawal and evaluated for any co-occuring disorders in order to establish the most effective course of treatment. Guests in our medical detox program will be under direct medical supervision 24/7 to ensure their safety and comfort. Our medical detox program is the first step in the recovery process. Medical detox is vital for the safe removal of alcohol or substances from the body. Symptoms of withdrawal vary, and can be life-threatening, which is why we provide 24/7 supervision of guests from medical professionals through out the detox process.

Residential Inpatient

Our residential inpatient program is designed to follow guests from medical detox, continuing the therapeutic work that was started. We offer group therapy for five hours per day, 7 days a week for residential inpatient guests. Our group therapy provides education, insight, and support from both staff and peers. In addition to group therapy, guests have individual therapy sessions with their primary therapist to uncover the root cause of their alcohol or substance use disorder, introspectively reflect, and work through things like trauma, grief and loss, etc. Our intensive therapies are key to helping guests heal and recover in the mind, body, and spirit.

Through out our medical detox and residential inpatient programs, we put each guest on a nutritional program. Our in-house, private chef prepares guests three balanced meals per day to ensure optimal health. Nutrition in recovery is extremely important for all guests, as nutrition was not a priority during their active addiction. Addiction recovery is all about learning a new way of life, which is why our nutritional program encourages guests to focus on their health in all aspects. Guests are able to see the difference that a balanced, healthy diet brings them.
