How Long Does it Take to Complete A Drug Rehab In Sparks?

The duration of a drug rehab center depends on the type and seriousness of addiction and on the willingness of the addict to work with the program. A simple detox program takes around three days . However, detoxing the body of existing drugs is not the only motive of a rehab center.

The main goal of any rehab facility in Sparks is to ensure that the person is drug-free, and able to live a productive and healthy life with little or no chance of a relapse. There is no exact time limit to drug treatment, it depends on the individual. Some might find it helpful to participate in meetings and support groups long after their stint in the rehab. Others might choose to quit the program after successful detoxification and recovery from painful withdrawal symptoms.

Most rehab centers in Sparks offer either short term programs or long term residential treatment. In short term treatment, the addict resides in the rehabilitation facility for a period of one or two months. During this time, the patient goes through a complete detoxification and is educated about addiction and how it occurs. The patient learns about handling peer pressure, stress and is encouraged to open up about personal issues. A short term residential program is more effective than solely a three day detox, and greatly reduces the chance of a relapse.

A long term rehab facility stretches for three months to a year or more. Usually addicts prone to relapses are recommended for such a program. This facility promotes addicts to live independently by letting them take part in household responsibilities, learn vocational skills while also participating in group therapy. Living in a long term residential program acclimatizes addicts with the idea of adjusting in normal society after the rehab program. Such facilities are designed to lower the rate of relapses.

Conclusion

An ideally suited drug rehabilitation center should treat a patient's addiction, as well as take measures to prevent relapses. Along with therapy it is important that addicts be treated with respect and care to help see them through the program.
