As not everyone can afford to stay in a long-term facility for months, knowing what the options are for short-term treatment is wise. According to a study done by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), in 2005 those patients who were discharged from short-term residential treatment (fewer than 30 days) had a higher completion rate; 57 percent for short-term compared with 38 percent for long-term. Completion of the treatment can be associated with good patient outcomes. Those who had alcohol abuse were the highest percentage to complete their treatment after discharge from a short-term facility with 66 percent. The lowest completion rate for those in a short-term facility was for those who had stimulant abuse (such as meth) at 46 percent. However, because each person is an individual and each situation is different, whether or not a short-term treatment facility is the best option for you should be evaluated by a professional.
In Florida, you can choose a facility that offers either short or long-term residential treatment. For some people, using a combination of short-term residential treatment and outpatient care can be helpful. If you are enrolled in Medicare Part A, Medicare may be able to cover some of the cost.
