It’s only a matter of time before prolonged and untreated substance abuse leads to dependency.
Before it gets to this point, however, and users begin feeling the full brunt of physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms, they have a limited window of time during which it’s considerably easier to overcome drug or alcohol abuse.
Short-term rehabs are ideal for patients who have begun a casual flirtation with drug or alcohol abuse but have not yet begun feeling the effects of dependency.
These programs may be suitable for adolescents facing disciplinary action related to their drug or alcohol abuse, seniors who have begun unwittingly abusing their prescriptions, and other select vulnerable populations.
Short-term rehab is generally administered in an outpatient setting and lasts anywhere from two weeks to a month.
Patients undergo substance use counseling from a trained mental health professional while addressing the psychological origins and triggers of their substance abuse and developing behavioral coping techniques to avoid relapse.
Short-term rehabs generally offer more peripheral care and focus on the external lifestyle risks associated with prolonged and continued alcohol and drug use.
It is the ideal intervention for patients who have not yet crossed the bridge to dependency.
