Short Term alcohol and drug rehabilitation is a phrase used to mean substance abuse rehab that is brief, and usually lasts anywhere from 14 to 30 days in either an inpatient or residential rehab center. Because rehabilitation is not long, it is an ideal option cost-wise in most cases and for clients who cannot commit to long-term rehabilitation.
Most short-term alcohol and drug rehab programs in Atlantic have psychotherapy and individual/group counseling which in the context of addiction treatment is essentially relapse prevention. Because of the brief time clients are in treatment, most people will need to go through total detox before beginning treatment services. One of the disadvantages of treatment at a short-term drug rehabilitation facility is that many people may still be experiencing the beginning stages of withdrawal and may be more unfocused than someone who has detoxed and stabilized fully. This can make rehab within the timeframe much harder as clients may be physically uncomfortable and moody and experiencing intense cravings.
Recidivism rates are greater among people who only receive short term treatment . People who participate in short term substance abuse rehabilitation and then phase into an outpatient program or day treatment center at least have a better chance of staying sober because they will keep up a support system while they transition to a sober lifestyle.
