How Can Addiction Treatment Programs Help?
The ultimate goal of all addiction treatment programs is to provide the patient the "tools" necessary to achieve long-term abstinence. In order for someone to achieve this goal, addiction treatment programs:
- Address your medical and psychiatric needs
- Provide nutritional and medical management counseling
- Facilitate family healing through a family program
- Work on the development of interpersonal relationships
- Improve daily living skills
- Maintain attendance at 12 step support groups.
Please keep in mind that there are several types of addiction treatment programs and each addiction treatment program may vary in their treatment philosophy, services, and population they are able to treat. Our goal is to locate an addiction treatment program that will meet your individual needs.
Medical Addiction Detoxification (Detox)
Drug detox and alcohol detox is generally a short term addiction treatment program, usually lasting between three to ten days. The time you spend in drug or alcohol detox is contingent upon the amount of drugs/alcohol you have been using, how long you have been using them and any medical/psychiatric condition(s).
Detox, short for detoxification, is only the first step in the addiction treatment process. Most people, due to the length and severity of use, develop a physical and psychological dependency on their drug of choice (including alcohol). When you abruptly discontinue your use, you begin to experience the onset of drug or alcohol withdrawal symptoms. These initial drug or alcohol withdrawal symptoms may include sweats, cramping, constipation and anxiety or can be as medically complex as seizures, convulsions or delirium tremors. The risks associated with suddenly discontinuing use are just too great to be done without medical supervision in an inpatient detox program.
Drug or alcohol detox can be a challenging process within the addiction treatment program. Almost all quality addiction treatment programs will ensure that its medical detox program is designed to ensure your safety and prepare you for ongoing addiction treatment. A drug or alcohol detox program can be located within a drug rehab, alcohol rehab addiction treatment facility or hospital setting. Each of these addiction or alcohol treatment settings provides 24 hour nursing and medical support.
Which Addiction Treatment Program is Right for Me?
- Free-Standing Residential Addiction Treatment Centers:
A free-standing residential addiction treatment facility is basically a stand-alone building, that specializes in the treatment of drug addiction, alcoholism and dual diagnosis. Patients generally reside within the addiction treatment facility 24 hours a day, while under the care of a team of addiction professionals. While these addiction treatment programs may have other components of care such as day treatment, partial hospitalization or outpatient, their main focus lies in providing 24-hour residential care for their patients. Free-standing addiction treatment programs are also capable of providing drug and alcohol detox, but not all addiction treatment programs offer this service in-house.
The average length of stay for private insurance in these addiction treatment centers is approximately 20 days. A residential center that is federally funded may have a length of stay that is approximately three to six months.
Just call 954-271-5047 and we will be more than happy to assist you in locating quality addiction treatment programs or alcohol treatment centers that meet your needs.
- Hospital Based Rehabilitation Unit:
Hospital based addiction treatment programs are exactly like they sound. These type of addiction treatment programs are located on a unit in a general hospital. They are best suited for those persons who along with their drug addiction or alcoholism have developed chronic or acute medical or psychiatric problems. Lengths of stay in these types of addiction treatment programs are generally shorter than free-standing addiction treatment centers due to the focus on eliminating medical problems and providing drug or alcohol detox services.
In many cases, you are referred to a free-standing addiction treatment program from the hospital-based unit to complete the remainder of your drug addiction treatment. You will find that some insurance carriers may not cover drug addiction treatment in a hospital setting - please allow us to help you determine this and guide you to a quality drug addiction treatment program. The average length of stay in a hospital based drug or alcohol rehab unit is approximately 10 days.

- Long Term Residential Treatment or Extended Care:
These long-term addiction treatment programs were designed for people who had completed anywhere from fourteen to thirty days of residential addiction treatment and for a variety of reasons required additional residential treatment. A few of the criteria for long-term addiction treatment are if you are:
- Still displaying drug seeking behavior after completion of a thirty day addiction treatment program
- Experiencing relapse after a short term stay in an addiction treatment center
- Requiring additional time in a structured setting to resolve outstanding clinical issues
The average length of stay in a long-term addiction treatment center is approximately 90 days. Originally designed to treat impaired professionals, the additional time in long-term addiction treatment proved so positive, that many addiction treatment facilities began referring other patients. Today, it is not uncommon for anyone to access long-term addiction treatment.
We can assist you in determining if you require this type of addiction treatment and help you find a quality long-term addiction treatment center that meets your needs.
- Outpatient Addiction Treatment Programs:
Outpatient addiction treatment programs are more suitable for individuals who are employed, have extensive social support systems, can maintain abstinence for up 72 hours and are highly motivated individuals. Patients of outpatient addiction treatment programs generally reside at home and attend the program several evening or days during the week. While most people with substance abuse or alcohol problems would rather attend outpatient addiction treatment, not everyone is appropriate for this level of care. An extensive assessment must be completed to determine whether an outpatient addiction treatment program can meet your needs. The length of these programs is approximately six weeks; they generally meet three to five times a week for three hours each meeting.
- Partial Hospital or Day Treatment Programs:
Partial hospital or day addiction treatment programs are a step above outpatient addiction treatment in that they meet five days a week for approximately four hours every day. Initially designed as a "step down" program for those persons completing residential care, they became an option for some insurance carriers in an attempt to negate having to pay for extended residential addiction treatment. These types of addiction treatment programs became very popular in the late 90's, especially in providing mental health care for the Medicare population. Patients generally live at home or in another structured setting and attend these addiction treatment programs during the day.
- Therapeutic Communities:
Therapeutic Communities in the U.S. are primarily referred to in the field of addictive behavior as a Mental Health approach. This began in the U.S. in the early 1960's by an AA member named Charles E. Dederich. Mr. Dederich utilized many variants of 12 step work with different terms and placed a great emphasis on delivery of behavior change practices in residential settings. Today's Therapeutic Communities are quite varied in style, content, and preferred lengths of stay and operate throughout the world in both residential, school based and out-patient programs.
