Residential long-term treatment lasts for thirty days, or longer, depending on the need of the patient. Residential long-term treatment is for patients who did not find residential short-term treatment programs to be beneficial. Often, a doctor will recommend residential long-term treatment if he or she thinks it will be more beneficial for the patient than residential short-term treatment. Often, the doctor will recommend this in cases of severe addiction. Residential long-term treatment is geared toward those who have relapsed into addiction after having been in residential short-term treatment. Residential long-term treatment is useful for patients who are rehabilitating from a drug which has a lengthy withdrawal period. Residential long term treatment will be more helpful in the rehabilitation process in this case, as the patient will remain in a structured, sheltered environment throughout their withdrawal. If a patient has a co-occurring mental health issue, residential long-term treatment is preferred due to the long treatment period required.
