Frequently Asked Questions

There isn't a set period of time that applies to everyone when it comes to rehabilitation. Many rehab programs offer 30-day programs as a minimum treatment length. However, some individuals benefit from 60-, 90-day, or even longer stays at residential or inpatient treatment centers to further develop and maintain a steady recovery path. The optimal length of rehab can vary according to:

  • The addiction in question.
  • The individual's history with addiction.
  • The severity of the addiction.
  • The presence of co-existing medical, mental, or behavioral health conditions (dual diagnosis).
  • The individual's physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual needs.

Studies find that those who spend longer amounts of time in rehabilitation programs achieve better rates of long-term sobriety.

This is because more time spent at a treatment facility means more opportunity to focus on the root causes and behaviors behind the addiction. If these issues are effectively addressed, individuals are more likely to be able to resist temptations to relapse.

Relapse should not be viewed as a failure but should instead be seen as an obstacle to overcome on one's lifelong journey to sobriety. It provides an opportunity to reassess one's path and get back into a program that offers the support and help needed to maintain sobriety.

Many struggling with addiction complete more than one stay in rehab before they are able to find their footing in their recovery journey. All-in-all, the only thing that can “cure” addiction is you — but rehab will help you build strong skills and defenses to maintain your abstinence and will support you through your recovery struggles
