Short-term residential treatment is usually less than 30 days in a rehabilitation facility. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), people suffering from addiction are more likely to complete their short-term treatment program than a long-term program. In 2005, those suffering from alcohol abuse had the highest completion rate in the short-term programs (66%). Those suffering from stimulant abuse (such a meth) had the lowest rate (46%). According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse, there is no one size fits all approach to treating individuals for drugs addiction and therefore no optimum time length for treatment; however, people who stay in the program for the full-length of the treatment are more likely to reap the benefits of that program. Nevertheless, whether or not short-term residential treatment is appropriate for a person's condition should be assessed by a professional. There are some cases, which may require extended attention, such as dual-diagnosis cases or severe addiction cases.
In Colorado, there are a number of facilities that offer residential short-term programs. Some facilities may also be Medicaid or Medicare listed providers. If you are eligible for Medicaid or Medicare it is worth investigating those facilities. Finding someone who can help assess what course of treatment might be best is as easy as visiting our website.
