Who Is a Candidate for Short-Term Treatment?
Short-term inpatient drug rehab, which includes medically supervised detox, usually lasts fewer than 60 days, with an average of about 30. This treatment option is not ideal for those with severe addictions to meth, heroin, or prescription opiates. However, it works well for other moderate addictions, especially when followed up by an outpatient program.
If the factors below pertain to you, you are likely an ideal candidate for an inpatient short-term clinical program:
- You medically qualify for inpatient treatment.
- Your outside commitments make a long-term program challenging.
- You live close enough to the rehab center that you will be able to continue treatment once you step down into an outpatient program.
- You have insurance or financial means for short-term residential treatment.
Three Benefits of Short-Term Inpatient Rehab
There are so many addiction treatment programs and protocols available to you that it can be challenging to decide which is best. Consider the three benefits below if a short-term inpatient drug rehab program is on your list of possibilities:
- More intensive care-In residential rehab, you are more able to focus intensely on the beginning of recovery. With short-term inpatient addiction treatment, you have the benefit of returning to your responsibilities sooner. However, this treatment option still allows you to jump-start your recovery with immersive treatments. When you step down to an outpatient program, you will find that you are more equipped to manage your sobriety.
- Less disruptive-Finding a middle ground between a long-term residential program and an entirely outpatient program helps many people balance their need for an immersive experience with their job, school, family, and other commitments. If you can make 30 days of inpatient rehab work for you, you still get the benefits of the residential program. You can then return to life a few months earlier than you would in a long-term program.
- Better treatment outcomes-Any time that you spend in residential addiction treatment results in improved long-term recovery outcomes. However, that does not mean that outpatient rehab is not worthwhile. This treatment option works well for many thousands in recovery every year. If you are considering your options and have some flexibility regarding residential rehab, improve your odds by saying yes to short-term inpatient treatment.
