The Importance of Long-Term Drug & Alcohol Rehabilitation
The longer you participate in rehab treatment and aftercare, the more likely you are to maintain your sobriety for life. Long-term drug rehabilitation programs help prevent relapse by providing the support, education and skills necessary to succeed. A life of addiction is not sustainable, but rehabilitation offers a new way of living by providing the following things:
- Self-understanding and discovery. Enrolling in a rehab program will allow you to peel away the outer layers and uncover the root causes of your addiction. Addressing these issues in a healthy way leads to a deeper understanding of yourself and the ability to truly experience full freedom from addiction.
- A safe place to be sober. Rehab serves as a distraction-free environment, far away from negative influences. This gives you time to focus on your recovery instead of spending all your efforts simply trying to stay afloat.
- Life skills. During rehabilitation, you’ll work your way through the 12-Step Program in conjunction with several other specialized treatments. This approach provides the education and skills necessary to identify harmful patterns, address triggers, and make the day-to-day decisions that will enable you to remain sober.
- Community support. By immersing yourself in a supportive community with others working toward the same goals, you are building a solid foundation for a sober life. This foundation is built on honesty, accountability and effective communication.
Long-Term Drug and Alcohol Rehab Options
After you complete your detox program, we will recommend a course of rehab treatment and aftercare that will be most effective and sustainable for you. This may include:
Clients admitted to a long-term residential treatment are housed in a comfortable facility that feels like home. On-site medical and therapeutic support is available 24/7. This type of rehab program consists of individual and group counseling, educational lectures, family support and other specialized therapies to address all aspects of addiction recovery. Long-term residential treatment programs last at least 90 days, but the timeframe will depend on each client’s needs. [Read more]
This program is designed for those who have successfully graduated from long-term residential treatment. Clients are allowed more personal freedom with IOP, as it helps bridge the transition between residential inpatient care and outpatient care. Individuals continue to expand their knowledge of addiction, life skills and coping techniques through regular group sessions at a convenient, safe facility. [Read more]
Sober living programs remove the temptations of harmful living environments to help people transition to independent living. Clients will live in a structured sober living home with other individuals in recovery. This provides a sense of community and accountability that aids in practicing healthy routines, encouraging others and refraining from substance abuse. All residents are also part of an addiction monitoring program for additional support and accountability. [Read more]
