Differences Between Long-Term and Short-Term Addiction Treatment Programs*
Extended addiction treatment programs — 90 days or longer — are becoming more popular due to evidence-based studies showing relapse to be less likely the longer the patient is in formal rehab.
Shorter programs are often less expensive, but long-term programs are better able to help people address the deep-seated roots of addiction in order to achieve long-term sobriety and avoidance of relapse. Therefore, a longer program could end up being more cost effective if it eliminates the patient’s need for return trips to rehab.
