Long-term residential treatment for alcohol or drug abuse is usually 30 days or longer, according to SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration). Long-term residential treatment may be necessary for patients who have not responded to short-term residential treatment, and so require more time within a structured treatment program. Often, long-term residential treatment is for those who doctors feel would benefit more from it than from a short-term treatment program. Long-term residential programs are required for the following conditions: if a patient suffers a relapse after undergoing short-term residential treatment, long-term residential treatment is sometimes necessary. If a patient is rehabilitating from a drug that has a long withdrawal period, long-term residential treatment may be the best method to complete rehabilitation; if a patient has co-occurring conditions, such as depression, long-term residential treatment would often be the preferred method of treatment.
If you meet any of the above conditions, or if you are dealing with substance abuse and require structured and long-term treatment, long-term residential treatment could be the best method of treatment for your needs.
