Are you safe in drug rehab? (inpatient treatment)

Drug Rehab

Inpatient treatment is a form of drug rehab in which patients stay in the confines of a rehab facility for a duration of time.


You are safe in rehab; you should have nothing to worry about except getting better. The vast majority of people in rehab are there to get serious help and will not condone harmful behavior from other patients. There is zero-tolerance for the use of drugs, violence, or any other kind of harassment: any of these things may compromise the progress of recovering addicts. Staff should be prepared for troubled patients and able to intervene when things get bad. Inpatient treatment programs have very serious environments, dedicated to getting you better and protecting you from the things that harm you most.
