Inpatient hospitalization programs in ND. are a kind of drug rehabilitation program which provides treatment in a hospital or similar setting where the rehabilitation process can be managed by medical staff as well as addiction professionals. As is frequently the case with benzodiazepine and alcohol withdrawal, it is sometimes necessary for the person to be in an inpatient hospitalization program while detoxing because some withdrawal symptoms can be life threatening. Inpatient hospitalization programs are also an option for those in North Dakota who wish to undergo medication assisted withdrawal, which is often used in the case of illicit opiate or prescription pain reliever addiction. Most people in ND. who receive this treatment route however and don't follow up with further drug rehab have extremely high rates of relapse. In either case, individuals should follow up detox with an intensive rehabilitation program either in inpatient hospitalization or in some other drug treatment center.
