Why Choose 30-Day Treatment
A key aspect of recovery is deciding to begin the process. However, there’s a lot of factors to consider before deciding the length of your rehab journey. Depending on each individual’s situation, the recommended treatment program lengths usually vary.
Even though a 30-day inpatient treatment program doesn’t seem like a lot of time, it can substantially impact a patient’s recovery and in a positive way.
Depending upon the substance, the idea is to detox and then develop the skills to keep themselves abstinent after treatment is done. A strong and strategic aftercare plan can help increase the chances of success in a treatment program.
A 30-day program would work best for you if you cannot spend prolonged amounts of time in treatment due to personal responsibilities such as work or family. This length of the program contains the same treatments and therapies as the more extended treatment stays, but they’re condensed.
Another key factor in deciding is whether you choose an inpatient or outpatient program. When you commit to inpatient, you’ll live in the facility and have access to round-the-clock care. This means you’ll be there seven days a week, and any outside responsibilities you have will temporarily be put on hold- or handled by family and friends you trust.
Outpatient care, on the other hand, means you’ll attend treatment multiple times per week (anywhere from three to seven days weekly), and you’ll go home at the end of the day. Outpatient is best for people with work or family responsibilities they cannot put into the hands of others.
A 30-day treatment plan may be the best for you in your current situation. For others who struggle with a prolonged and dangerous addiction, more extended options may best. You can also consider other treatment lengths available to you.
