The Definition of Long-Term Rehab
In many cases, long-term rehab is required for patients who have relapsed or suffer from severe addictions.
Short-term rehab typically lasts for up to a couple of months, while long-term rehabilitation may go on for six months to longer than a year.
The amount of time you spend in treatment will depend on a variety of individual factors, like the type of addiction, length, severity, genetic predisposition, social, and environmental factors.
However, longer treatments are generally better, and experts recommend a minimum of three months’ treatment for severely addicted individuals.
This is, on average, how long it takes to truly make a difference.
Long-Term Residential Treatment Program: What is the Typical Length?
Long-term rehab for drug and alcohol addiction recovery gives patients a residential treatment option that is safe, comfortable, and confidential. Without distractions and stigmas, patients are free to focus on recovery. Individuals who need intensive levels of treatment for their addictions and underlying mental health conditions can greatly benefit from long-term rehab stays.

Residential treatment programs are frequently broken down into the following lengths:
- 30-day rehab programs
- 60-day rehab programs
- 90-day rehab programs
These shorter and medium-length rehab program options give patients the structure, support, education, and tools they need to recover and stay sober.
Severely addicted individuals may require a longer stay before they feel confident enough to return home.
Daily responsibilities like work and family will play a part in your program choice, but your primary focus should be on your health and safety so that you can offer your best self to these obligations and loved ones once you are done.
Other Long-Term Rehab Program Options
Outside of a hospital-style setting, a residential rehab program will feel much more normal. You will also be surrounded by staff members and other patients who understand what you’re going through and are always there to support you.
Long-term rehab programs often do not feel long. In addition to the options listed above, there are a few others that are often available:
- Six-month programs
- Nine-month programs
- One-year drug rehab programs
- Extended stays
- 12-Step programs
- Alumni and support groups
- Outpatient care
- Aftercare planning and services
We will create a treatment plan based on your addiction.
Types of Rehab Programs
Drug and alcohol rehab programs are broken into two categories: inpatient and outpatient. Long-term rehab often occurs in an inpatient or residential rehab setting.
If one’s addiction is severe enough to require long-term care, it is typically severe enough to require a potentially medically-assisted detox and 24-hour care. Severe addictions, chronic relapses, multiple addictions, and dual diagnoses often benefit from a longer-term care model. The longer the treatment lasts, the greater your chances of success may be.
This is confirmed by addiction research and patterns seen in versatile drug and alcohol rehab facilities like the ones we offer at Resurgence Behavioral Health.
Free from distractions and temptations, inpatient long-term rehab gives you the chance to focus all of your attention on a healthy and long-lasting recovery.
Long-Term Recovery Plan Options
Long-term recovery occurs in stages that may look slightly different for each person. It’s important to be consistent, courageous, dedicated, and patient. Many addicted individuals feel anxious or discouraged after relapsing, which frequently occurs when addicts try to quit on their own. This is one reason of many that experts recommend inpatient or long term outpatient care. A thorough recovery plan and long-term recovery groups can also help.
Here are a few things to keep in mind as you begin to develop your own long-term recovery plan:
- Use therapy sessions to evaluate areas where you may be able to improve
- Reflect on damaging thoughts and behaviors
- Find a method that moves you out of these damaging thoughts and behaviors
- Identify and focus on your strengths
- Consider how those strengths can be used to improve some of your weaknesses
- Be realistic about the time it will take to get and stay sober
- Establish clear goals or milestones
- Celebrate each victory, no matter how small they may be
- Consider ways to avoid temptations, triggers, and individuals who are unsupportive
Some methods to move you away from damaging thoughts and behaviors include:
- Snapping a rubber band on your wrist
- Call a friend
- Call a support group member
- Call loved one
Remember that your process will not be the same as anyone else’s. Understanding and accepting your individuality can help keep you from constantly comparing your journey to another.
Your recovery plan should be built based on what you know will work best for you and if you do not know what that is yet, ask us, we can help.

Substance abuse often leads to many troubling physical and mental health conditions. Cardiovascular conditions, such as heart attacks and strokes are common in many categories of drug abuse.
The use of illicit drugs or abused prescription drugs can not only damage your health, but it can lead to accidents, comas, and death, as well.
Our job is not to scare you, but to make sure that you are well-informed so that you can make knowledgeable and healthy decisions for yourself.
Long-Term Addiction Recovery
Long-term addiction recovery begins with long-term addiction treatment. As we mentioned earlier, research has shown that three months in treatment can drastically reduce or end most addicted individuals’ drug use.
Do not be discouraged by a long-term treatment, especially when the end goal is long-term or lifetime recovery. As is the case with many other important things in life, you get out of this process what you put in.
