Short Term substance abuse rehab is a phrase used to mean substance abuse treatment that does not last long and usually lasts from fourteen to 30 days in either a residential or in-patient rehabilitation program. Because rehab is so brief, it is an ideal option cost-wise and for people who can't endure long-term rehab.
Most short-term drug and alcohol rehab programs in Clay Center offer intensive psychotherapy and individual/group counseling which is essentially relapse prevention. Because of the brief time clients are in treatment, most people will need to experience full detoxification before beginning treatment. One of the disadvantages of rehab at a short-term alcohol and drug rehab facility is that many people may still be experiencing the initial phases of withdrawal and may not be able to focus as well as someone who has stabilized and detoxed fully. This can make rehab within the specific timeframe much harder as people may be moody and physically uncomfortable and experiencing intense physical and emotional cravings.
Relapse rates are understandably greater among people who only receive short term rehabilitation as opposed to long term. Clients who participate in short term substance abuse rehab and then transition into an outpatient program or day treatment program have a better chance of maintaining their sobriety, because they will keep up a support system while they transition to a sober lifestyle.
