Short Term alcohol and drug rehab is a phrase used for addiction treatment that does not last long and lasts from fourteen to thirty days in either a residential or in-patient treatment facility. Because rehabilitation is not long, it is a great financial option and for clients who can't endure long-term rehabilitation.
Most short-term drug rehabilitation centers in Western offer intensive psychotherapy and individual/group counseling which in the context of addiction treatment is basically relapse prevention. Because of the short time allowed for treatment services, most individuals will need to go through total detox before beginning treatment. One of the disadvantages of rehabilitation at a short-term alcohol and drug rehabilitation center is that many individuals may still be experiencing the beginning phases of withdrawal and may not be able to focus as well as 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 and experiencing intense physical and emotional cravings.
Recidivism rates are understandably greater with individuals who only get short term rehabilitation as opposed to long term. People who participate in short term drug rehabilitation and then phase into an intensive outpatient program or day rehab program have more of a chance of staying sober because they will keep up a support system while they transition to a sober lifestyle.
