Short Term drug and alcohol rehabilitation is a term used for substance abuse treatment that is brief, and lasts anywhere from 14 to thirty days in either an inpatient or residential treatment program. Because treatment is not long, it is an ideal option cost-wise in most cases and for clients who for some reason cannot commit to long-term rehabilitation.
Most short-term drug and alcohol rehab centers in Norlina have psychotherapy and individual/group counseling which in the context of addiction treatment is essentially relapse prevention. Because of the short time allowed for treatment services, most people will need to go through total detox before beginning treatment services. One of the disadvantages of rehabilitation at a short-term drug and alcohol rehab program is that many people may still be in the initial stages of withdrawal and may be more unfocused than someone who has detoxed and stabilized fully. This can make treatment within the timeframe much more challenging, as people may be moody and physically uncomfortable and experiencing intense physical and emotional cravings.
Relapse rates are higher with individuals who only receive short term treatment . People who participate in short term substance abuse rehab and then phase into an outpatient program or day rehab program have a better chance of maintaining their sobriety, because they will maintain a support system while they progress in their new sober lifestyle.
