Long Term Rehab

Long Term Rehab 2017-07-28T08:49:05+00:00

Anyone who has experienced substance abuse, or seen a loved one suffer from it knows all too well that a short stint in rehab of 28-30 days often is not enough. The path to a successful recovery from substance abuse can be a rocky one that requires time, perseverance and support.

According to the US National Institute on Drug Abuse, a rehabilitation period of 90 days or longer is typically needed to allow enough time for a patient to fully recover. While many patients may resist going into a long term addiction treatment center, the longer the stay at a rehab center, the higher the chances of successful recovery.

The length of treatment varies greatly depending on your individual needs. It can take anywhere from 90 days up to two years, however most treatments last between 6 to 12 months. Not everyone is suited for a stay at a long term rehab center. If the following points describe your situation, a long term rehabilitation center may help you get your life back on track:

  • You have already attended one or more detox and/or short term rehab sessions with little success.

Benefits of Long Term Rehab Centers

Substance abuse is a complicated issue that involves a number of factors including emotional issues and triggers, social situations, personal relationships and daily habits. The main benefit of long-term rehab centers is the gift of time. With short-term treatments between 28 to 30 days, your first several days or weeks may be used up in the detoxification stage leaving little time to break old harmful habits and form new ones.

A 2009 study performed by researchers at University College London, UK, showed that it takes most people an average of 66 days to form a new habit and stick with it. However, individual times varied anywhere from 18 days to a one year drug rehab program. If you are someone who has wrestled with drug or alcohol problems for years, you’ll likely need more time to shed old, detrimental habits and form new, productive ones.

When you enter a long term rehab center, you gain a support network of trained therapists, counselors and medical doctors, as well as the support from other patients. Together, the people at your facility create a healthy, positive environment to heal and grow as an individual. Being away from home can help create distance from old, emotional triggers that contributed to your substance abuse, as well as from the people that may have encouraged your past behavior.

Long term centers provide you with the time to examine your life, mend broken relationships, and re-integrate successfully into society by offering employment assistance to help you find meaningful work.
