What is Rehab?

Rehab or rehabilitation is a structured program or facility where those addicted to drugs or alcohol can get treatment to stop using substances.

What are the Types of Rehab?

There are a variety of levels of care associated with rehab treatment. The type of rehab needed will depend on the individual needs of the patient. Typically, patients enter detox where 24/7 medically supervised monitoring occurs to help individuals overcome the side effects associated with withdrawal. From there, patients may enter an inpatient or residential program where they will reside on site and receive continued monitoring, treatment, and therapy. The patient may then enter an outpatient program where the patient can go to treatment “part-time” and return home everyday after treatment is completed.

How Long Does Rehab Last?

Rehab length of stay typically lasts a few weeks, with about an overage of 30 days in treatment. Detox will typically last a couple days to weeks depending on the substance used, and then inpatient can last a couple of weeks as well to ensure long-term recovery. Outpatient treatment can be on-going depending on the needs of the patient.
