Short Term substance abuse rehab is a phrase used to mean substance abuse treatment that does not last long and usually lasts anywhere from 14 to 30 days in either a residential or in-patient rehab center. Because rehabilitation is so short, it is an ideal option cost-wise and for people who can't commit to long-term treatment.
Most short-term substance abuse rehabilitation facilities in Atkinson offer intensive group and individual counseling and psychotherapy which in the context of addiction treatment is basically relapse prevention. Because of the short time allowed for treatment services, most clients will need to be fully detoxed before beginning treatment. One of the disadvantages of rehabilitation at a short-term drug rehab program is that clients may still be in the beginning stages of withdrawal and may not be able to focus as well as someone who has detoxed and stabilized completely. This can make treatment within the specific timeframe much harder as individuals may be physically uncomfortable and moody while experiencing intense cravings.
Recidivism rates are understandably higher among clients who only go through short term treatment . Clients who participate in short term substance abuse rehab and then transition into an intensive outpatient program or day treatment program at least have more of a chance of maintaining their sobriety, because they will maintain a support system while they transition to a sober lifestyle.
