The length of a rehabilitation program for alcohol or drug abuse is as important as the treatment being given.
The length of a rehabilitation program for alcohol or drug abuse can sometimes be just as important as the type of treatment being given. Unfortunately the insurance industry has had a part in dictating the length of residential care often by limiting the number of days covered to just 30.
While there is no set amount of time for treatment that is recommended, it is widely recognized in clinical and governmental institutions that longer-term programs are viewed as being more effective for the clients. Generally, anything over a month is considered to be long-term residential treatment.
The standard 28-day treatment program has a very poor retention rate.
Steve is like many people who find themselves addicted to alcohol.
As he says: "I knew I had a problem but it never got in the way of my career, until I began working from home, then it got out of control."
After that, it got bad quick and I needed to do something different, and that was a year ago, and it has been the best year of my life.
People abusing drugs or alcohol have usually been doing so for years before they finally reach the point of receiving treatment, therefore it often takes much more than a couple weeks or a month to reverse what damage has been done.
Our program Gulf Breeze Recovery is tailored to the needs of each individual in a longer-term setting and has a specialized aftercare life plan component to help people along in their continued transition toward permanent recovery.
According to a report from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) shorter-term programs may typically have a higher retention rate, but we have found that when the program is more individualized and engages the participant then the retention rate increases significantly as well.
If you or someone you care about, has an ongoing history of substance use and relapse, we offer hope and we can help.
