Short Term alcohol and drug rehabilitation is a phrase used to mean addiction rehab that is brief, and lasts from fourteen to thirty days in either a residential or in-patient rehab program. Because rehab is so brief, it is an ideal option cost-wise in most cases and for clients who can't endure long-term rehabilitation.
Most short-term drug and alcohol rehab centers in Western have group and individual counseling and psychotherapy 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 experience full detoxification before beginning services. One of the disadvantages of treatment at a short-term drug rehabilitation program is that individuals 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 rehabilitation within the specific timeframe much more challenging, as clients may be physically uncomfortable and moody while experiencing intense physical and emotional cravings.
Relapse rates are higher with people who only go through short term rehabilitation as opposed to long term. Individuals who participate in short term drug and alcohol rehabilitation and then transition into an intensive outpatient program or day rehabilitation center at least have a better chance of staying sober because they will maintain a support system while they transition to a sober lifestyle.
