Extended Drug Rehab Care Options

Extended drug rehab programs are available for those with serious drug or alcohol addictions. Extended addiction treatment programs may include alcohol rehabilitation aftercare or drug aftercare, or it may simply extend the time in the facility beyond the usual long-term program of 90 days. Our staff has knowledge on all the programs that are available, including those in your area and throughout the country. If you would like to learn about extended addiction treatment programs near you and how you can become a patient, contact our hotline at 1-888-716-9806.

Inpatient Rehab Programs

Inpatient programs let patients live on site with 24-hour medical care. Long-term care in an extended drug rehab program is designed to last from three months to a year. This depends on the needs of the individual. Long-term programs can even be extended beyond a year, and some patients stay for more than one extended program.

Inpatient Facilities vs. Outpatient Clinics

Inpatient facilities for extended care are recommended. Extended drug rehab programs are for those with serious addiction issues. These same people may be having trouble in society and problems functioning in the community. Onsite care is one of the available options for those in this situation; doctors and a medical staff are available at all times.

Outpatient clinics are normally used for those with mild-to-moderate addictions to drugs or alcohol. Outpatient clinics let patients come and go, so they may not be right for someone with a serious addiction. Outpatient clinics can help those who need to maintain a functioning home life, work life, or school schedule.

Paying for a Treatment Center

Many programs offer financing, loans, and take insurance policies from the patients who need treatment. Each program is priced according to the length of time a patient will be at the facility, the amenities and other factors. When you look at a program you want to go to, consider these factors:

  • The length of stay
  • Type of treatment
  • Amenities provided
  • Whether the program is an inpatient or outpatient program

Rehab-Travel-Close-Home

The environment that will help you heal may not be where you currently are. If your home life is stressful or your daily environment is worsening your addiction to drugs or alcohol, consider traveling for rehabilitation to get away and focus on healing. To learn more about the benefits of traveling or staying close to home, call us at our hotline at 1-888-716-9806.

After rehabilitation is over, patients may opt for an extended drug rehab program if they still do not feel ready to enter back into regular society. This can be discussed with the doctors and therapists at the program of your choice. They will have the information about your medical condition that can help decide if you are ready to leave the program.
