Outpatient rehab facilities

I have heard about the 30 day inpatient treatment options available in my community but some individuals may need long-term rehab which can take as long as one to two years depending on what is involved. I had no idea it could take that long but it makes sense now that I know. We cannot delay in helping individuals seek treatment because any delay just adds to the cost to treat an individual.

About Long-Term Rehab

A substance abuse treatment plan is often divided into various stages, which typically consist of medically assisted detoxification (detox), rehabilitation therapy, and aftercare support. Different approaches to treatment are offered on either an outpatient or inpatient treatment facility. Though treatment lengths will vary, on average outpatient rehab facilities offer relatively short-term substance abuse treatment, while inpatient or residential treatment centers are able to accommodate individual needs for longer-term drug or alcohol rehab.

Long-term rehab or residential treatment centers typically involves several days of closely monitored detox, followed by 90 to 120 days of intensive substance abuse therapy and aftercare planning. This type of rehab works well for individuals with long-standing or severe addictions, as well as dually diagnosed patients, or those individuals who struggle with both a substance use disorder and co-occurring mental health disorder. Residential treatment centers can also provide assistance for adolescents addicted to drugs or alcohol.
