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