Inpatient Rehabilitation for Drug & Alcohol Abuse in Pennsylvania

Will inpatient programs force a patient to stay in treatment?

No inpatient drug and alcohol treatment center can force a client to remain in treatment. If a patient is really fighting to leave rehabilitation, the individuals working at the center, and the counselor will do whatever it takes to talk with them, and leave them no choice but to stay. When it comes right down to it, they cannot be forced to stay, but the family can make it quite clear that if they leave they will be cut off from everything until they receive help.
