Break Free from the Ravages of Substance Abuse Today
By making the decision to enter an inpatient drug and alcohol rehab program at Beachway Therapy Center, clients are taking the first step towards a life of sobriety. Understandably, people who are considering entering a rehab program often want to know how long they’ll need to be enrolled. Generally, a client’s average length of stay will depend on several factors.
The substance of choice is an important consideration.
Furthermore, frequency can also make a difference. With the guidance of professionals, many clients can complete the detoxification phase of drug and alcohol rehab within about a week. Then, once the detoxification is complete, it’s time for clients to begin the rehabilitation period.
The majority of traditional 12 step rehabilitation programs enroll patients for 28 days. However, since clients have different dependency levels, that length of time is not always effective. Clients must be willing to undergo an evaluation by trained professionals who will use a patient’s history to map out a customized plan for rehabilitation. Furthermore, once the rehabilitation team has gained a full understanding of a client’s past habits, they’ll be more able to recognize if a client is experiencing a more difficult rehabilitation than normal.
A client’s outlook and attitude about their rehabilitation experience can also be a defining factor in overall timeframes. Although well-meaning loved ones can certainly encourage people to enroll in a rehab program, the best results often come once the client themselves becomes determined to break free from the holds of addiction and press onward towards a future of promise.
Time is not the most important part of recovery.
Instead, it’s more important to stay focused on the quality of the care received. Although professionals can help clients get through many of the physical symptoms that accompany a withdrawal from a substance, there is still a substantial amount of work to do in the months and years that follow. For example, successful rehabilitation programs teach strategies for overcoming urges to fall back into a pattern of substance abuse. They also emphasize the need to regularly attend meetings and become associated with a group of fellow recovering addicts. Contact us to find out what length of stay is best for you, or a loved one.
