Alpharetta, Georgia is home to more than 65,000 people and makes up the northern tip of Atlanta’s Heroin Triangle. The most pressing substance abuse addiction issues in Alpharetta include alcohol, heroin, prescription pills and methamphetamine. The deadly seriousness of Alpharetta’s heroin addiction crisis was thrust back into the spotlight after another overdose death in early 2019 that happened to coincide with President Trump’s visit to Atlanta to speak at the 8th annual RX Drug Abuse and Heroin Summit.

In many cases, ending one’s relationship with drugs or alcohol may entail more than just abstaining. Those who have struggled with addiction for a long time can benefit from seeking treatment in a long-term Alpharetta drug and alcohol rehab program for a variety of reasons. These programs tend to be very structured and geared toward helping patients not only break free of their addiction but also achieve sustained abstinence after completing their rehabilitation journey. Of course, there will always be naysayers who believe that long-term drug rehab does not improve an individual’s chances of successfully overcoming their addiction; however, studies have shown otherwise.

Short-Term Verus Long-Term Rehab

When it comes to short or long-term Alpharetta drug and alcohol rehab programs, both will follow a three-stage protocol that includes detox, rehabilitation, and aftercare. The differentiating factor, however, will be the length of time spent in each program. On average, inpatient rehab programs can last anywhere from 30 to 60 days while long-term rehab, which typically consists of outpatient drug and alcohol rehab in addition to inpatient treatment (and possibly sober living) can exceed 4-6 months  by comparison. In fact, according to the National Institute of Health, long-term rehab programs that are highly structured can last for as long as 12 months. Of course, this is not to suggest that one is better than the other as they both have a slightly different approach when it comes to meeting the needs of their patients and care should always be determined on an individual basis

Addiction Recovery and Long-Term Treatment

Having established a few of the core difference between short and long-term Alpharetta drug and alcohol rehab facilities, let’s focus our attention on how long-term treatment can improve one’s odds of successfully overcoming addiction. Also referred to as residential treatment centers, long-term rehab typically entails multiple days of monitored detox, which is then followed up with 90 to 120 days of substance abuse therapy before being rounded out with comprehensive aftercare planning. Long-term rehab is ideal for those with severe addictions or co-occurring disorders. It is also an excellent choice for anyone who has not found success with other forms of therapy or has experienced multiple relapses while trying to get clean.

The first step in being treated at a long-term rehab facility begins with detox, which entails ending one’s relationship with drugs or alcohol and allowing the body to rid itself of toxins and other contaminants. Depending on the individual’s substance of choice, he or she may receive additional supportive care and supervision, which typically includes drug replacement therapy, gradual drug reduction therapy, and medically-assisted detox. These tools are used to minimize the risk of acute withdrawals, which can quickly derail recovery efforts and cause patients to relapse. While undergoing supportive care, the patient’s body will acclimate to functioning without the aid of drugs or alcohol. The timeframe involved in this process can vary from patient to patient but will typically take at least a few days
