How Long Does New York Drug Treatment Last?

The great thing about choosing Treatment Alternatives New York is the fact that each individual’s drug rehab program is tailored specifically for them.

That being said, New York drug treatment typically lasts from about three months to a year. For those who plan on getting help for a drug or alcohol addiction over a longer period of time, outpatient treatment is a great option. Not only does it allow you to live at home or in a sober living facility during your program, but it is also less expensive; outpatient treatment allows people to receive the help needed for their addiction while still keeping up with school or work.

Depending on the severity of the addiction, those with a more serious case will sometimes require over a year of New York drug treatment. Considering that more serious cases require even more help, long-term outpatient treatment calls for a residential program due to the increased likelihood for a relapse. In light of the sliding scale that every addict is measured against, it is important to make sure you find a drug treatment center that is flexible and designed around each individual person coming for help.

At Treatment Alternatives New York, there are multiple types of outpatient rehab programs that make it possible to switch to a less intensive program after completing a more in-depth program; it is not unusual for individuals to graduate from intensive outpatient to outpatient because the recovery support is still there.

Some of the treatment options offered at Treatment Alternatives New York include:

Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP). Those coming for New York drug treatment typically meet six hours a day up to seven days a week. The most therapeutically based out of all the programs, PHP caters to the client by allowing the therapist to determine the needed level of involvement. Naturally, any additional hospital-based care required during the transition to a sober living home is provided.

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP). Similar to PHP but less in-depth, IOP still provides the needed structure in order to create a solid foundation for recovery. Allowing for more freedom and a greater level of personal responsibility, this type of New York drug treatment allows the individual to still attend school and work during the day without sacrificing their therapy meetings.

Outpatient Treatment (OP). The least intensive and structured out of all of the addiction treatment options, OP is designed to continue the care that has already been provided. An effective way to manage long-term sobriety, Treatment Alternatives New York will help provide added support outside of friends and family. OP also allows the recovering addict to focus on career and education goals; our career center will help you complete the necessary steps in order to create a successful (and sober) life.
