Benefits of Long Term Inpatient Drug Rehab
There are a number of benefits that come with the decision to seek help in a long term inpatient drug rehabilitation program. Put simply, statistics have proven that long term inpatient drug rehab is more effective at preventing relapse a promoting extended recovery from addiction. Because of the proven effectiveness of long-term inpatient rehab, the additional benefits of this method of treatment simply cannot be ignored.
For most people, long term drug rehab is not the first choice of treatment nor is it always a necessary choice.
Many people can benefit from less invasive, less lengthy forms of rehabilitation and can find ways to stay sober but for some, long term inpatient drug rehab is a MUST. Those who have repeatedly failed at other methods of treatment have a greater chance at recovering and at staying sober when they enter long-term rehab.
When outpatient drug rehab doesn’t work, most choose the next step which is a residential treatment program. These programs typically last for a period of about 90 days but in some cases may only last 30 days.
Regardless, if this method of treatment does not prove effective or if the patient attempts this method of recovery more than a couple of times and fails, long-term rehabilitation may be more suitable. It is when other methods of rehabilitation are proven not to be effective that the true benefits of long term rehab come into the picture.
How Long Term Inpatient Drug Rehab Works
Detox can take weeks or even months to complete for some people and this leaves very little time for recovery if a program is only a month or two long. Long-term rehab works by providing patients with adequate care that offers them plenty of time to detox and still leaves plenty of time for psychiatric care to help them recover.
Heavy users often need more than just 30 days of sobriety in order to truly break the cycle which is why long-term inpatient rehab provides a more lengthy option.
For some patients, it may take 6 months but for others, a program may need to last 12 months or more in order to be truly effective.
Regardless of how long it takes, long term rehab can help. It is during this time that patients learn to enjoy life without drugs, develop honest and happy relationships and heal from the pains caused by their addiction—no matter how much time the healing takes.
