how long drug rehabilitation take The length of stay at a drug rehab differs from person to person because it’s not clear-cut how much time is needed for each individual to fully recover and gain the skills needed to live a sober life. However, even if each client comes from a different background, with a different personal history, different addiction issues, and motivation for recovery, there must be a formatted treatment plan to be followed as far as duration of a rehab program.

Inpatient drug rehab programs are commonly found in 30, 60 and 90-day stay formats. A 30-day stay is usually the most sought-after and is considered to be the first step towards recovery. “Popularity” of a 30 day inpatient rehab is often linked to the fact that insurance companies normally just pay for the initial 30 days of treatment and recovering individuals often cannot stay away from work or other responsibilities longer than 30 days.

A 30 day inpatient drug rehab program is generally sufficient to start the recovery process by providing recovering individuals with the foundation to develop skills necessary to succeed.

Whether an individual attends a 30, 60 or 90 day rehab program, a discharge plan completes the treatment process. Outpatient treatment might be recommend after an inpatient program as well as participation in self-help groups, relapse prevention groups and family counseling. Also, plans for sober living arrangements might be recommended. So, while an inpatient drug rehab program has a limit of days in treatment stay, the recovery process does not, as each individual is unique, and recovery is a lifelong process.
