Inpatient rehab programs establish a therapeutic community which can help you build a long-lasting recovery with peers. Some rehab programs also offer experiences for confidence and sober living skills, including wilderness experiences and art, music, and equine (horse) therapy.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment usually takes place in a community setting. Outpatient programs can last between 10 and 12 weeks, usually meeting three days a week.

Some outpatient programs can accommodate working adults. More intensive outpatient programs meet more often. Outpatient programs that meet every day are also called partial hospitalization programs (PHPs).

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) has been used for a number of years to help people recover from alcohol, opioid, and tobacco use disorders.

MAT programs combine FDA-approved medications including buprenorphine and naltrexone with evidence-based therapy. MAT programs can last six months to a year or longer.

Aftercare And Alumni Services

Substance use disorders are chronic and lifelong. Aftercare and alumni programs can play an important role in helping you to continue your sobriety. They can also help you to cope with life’s ups and downs without returning to substance use.

Combining counseling with peer group support and 12-step facilitation, alumni and aftercare programs are a key part of maintaining a strong recovery.

Length Of Addiction Treatment

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) recommends that substance use disorder treatment programs should be individualized and holistic.

Within this framework, you’ll find that some common treatment lengths are:

  • 30-day programs
  • 60-day programs
  • 90-day programs
  • 120-day programs
