Residential long-term treatment is tailored to those who have not responded to residential short term programs. These patients may require a longer period of time in a structured environment and treatment program. Your doctor will often suggest a stay in residential long-term treatment if he or she deems it more beneficial than residential short-term treatment. The length of treatment, according to SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration), is usually 30 days or longer.

It is also the preferred method of treatment if the patient is coming off a drug, which has an extended withdrawal period. Residential Long-term treatment, in that case, is more likely to help with rehabilitation.

Residential long-term treatment allows for a longer treatment period.
