The Drug Abuse Treatment Outcome Study (DATOS) showed that there was a reduction in drug use amongst those who successfully completed their treatment in a residential treatment center. The study also showed reductions in unemployment, and criminal behavior. The DATOS study shows that people experience fewer relapses if they have been exposed to longer treatment. However, even short-term treatment has demonstrable results, for example, those who were admitted for short-term treatment for cocaine use, only 38% returned to weekly cocaine use. There are a number of external factors which may contribute to success or relapse rates including environment, family, and friends.
Due to work, school or other commitments, not everyone is able to spend months in rehabilitation. Short-term treatment is designed to help those who want inpatient treatment, but who cannot go through a full long-term treatment program (usually 90 days or more). Often, after discharge a short-term treatment facility will provide options for outpatient care including counseling. This type of care may help improve the success rate of these programs. There are short-term care facilities in Kansas. Choosing one which provides both good inpatient care, but also has post-treatment (sometimes called “after care”) programs, is important.
