Important Considerations For Finding Treatment
When it comes to short or long-term addiction treatment programs, both will follow a three-stage protocol that includes detox, rehabilitation, and aftercare. The difference 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. This doesn’t mean that one is better than the other, as they have slightly different approaches when it comes to meeting the specific needs of their patients.
Depending on someone’s unique needs, some things to consider may include:
- The variety of services offered at a rehab program. The more tools someone has to aid their recovery, the better.
- Are they a dual-diagnosis rehab program? Some people require the comprehensive care provided by dual-diagnosis treatment centers.
- Do they have aftercare programs?
- Do they hold any accreditations or certifications?
