Long Term Addiction Treatment
Long Term Treatment Programs
Drug rehabilitation is the process of treating drug addiction, usually by medical or psycho-therapeutic methods. The purpose of long term addiction treatment is generally to stop addicts from using drugs, allowing them to avoid the legal, psychological and physical consequences of drug addiction.
Scientific research clearly shows that an effective drug rehab program must address all of the patient’s needs rather than just the addiction. An addict’s motivation is also an important indicator or the program’s success. Blu By the Sea offers long-term drug rehab, which provides the best opportunities for a client’s recovery.
How to Succeed
The success of an addiction treatment program is measured by the ability of its clients to remain sober over the long term. Long term addiction treatment is more likely to succeed because effective rehabilitation requires addicts to modify their behavior, which requires time to accomplish.
These rehab programs consist of three phases of care, including primary treatment, sober living and outpatient support. Each of these phases must be effective in order for the program to succeed.
A traditional short-term drug rehab program lasts for a specific period, typically 30 days. Blu By the Sea offers a long-term program goal-based program, meaning that clients must meet the goal of each phase, before proceeding to the phase.
The average duration of this program varies depending on the clients. Some clients may complete the program in two months, while others may require a longer stay. A long-term program is especially helpful for clients addicted to hard street drugs such as cocaine, heroin or methamphetamine’s.
Blu By the Sea considers individuals to be clients, rather than patients. Each client enrolls in this long-term drug rehab program to learn about their addiction. This program emphasizes personal responsibility and does not allow clients to think of themselves as victims.
Clients who complete the Blu By the Sea program should be able to meet the following criteria:
- Live a drug-free life
