You know you need addiction treatment. You\u2019re worried about what it may mean for the rest of your life. At The Right Step, we offer comprehensive treatment options, including programs that can help you right away. We often receive questions about this. \u201cWhen will I need extended rehab care?\u201d \u201cHow much time will it take for me to get care?\u201d Every person is different, but the treatment that\u2019s right for you is available.\r\nWhat Is the Right First Step for You?\r\nBefore determining how long you need to spend in care, your doctors and therapists need to understand more about your condition and the severity of your addiction. Most people with moderate to severe addiction will need to begin care in a medical drug detox program. This type of program may range from just 3 days up to 21 days (on average). The amount of care you need in detox is determined based on your health, the type of drug you used, and how fast your body metabolizes it.\r\nWill I Need Extended Rehab Care After This?\r\nOnce you complete detox if needed, most of the time, patients benefit the most from inpatient drug addiction treatment. This is a time when you\u2019ll spend your time at The Right Step. We offer specific women\u2019s and men\u2019s addiction treatment programs. Inpatient care provides 24-hour care in a drug-free community where you\u2019ll receive comprehensive care.\r\n\r\nMany times, our clients spend up to 90 days receiving residential treatment like this. The length of this treatment plan depends on many factors, including how well you adjust to living without drugs and the complications you may have to deal with, such as mental health treatment.\r\n\r\nDuring your time in residential care, you\u2019ll work through many programs, each designed to give you the tools you need to do well after you leave. This may include:\r\n\r\n \tPrograms such as The Daring Way, designed to give you confidence\r\n \tCognitive-behavioral therapy\r\n \tDialectical behavior therapy\r\n \tGroup and individual therapy\r\n \tFamily therapy\r\n \tOpportunities for holistic care such as with fitness therapy programs\r\n\r\nYou\u2019ll also have your mental health, physical needs, and emotional health needs met during your stay with us. When you ask, \u201cWill I need extended rehab care?\u201d be sure to consider just how complex your care needs may be.\r\nGoing Home with Care\r\nSome people do not require inpatient care. You may have a very stable at-home environment and a wide range of support to rely on. You may be able to stop using drugs or alcohol without significant withdrawal symptoms. In these cases, you may not need inpatient care but outpatient support.\r\n\r\nMost of the time, clients who do complete inpatient care will continue on with more outpatient care. We do provide an aftercare program that is designed to prepare you for the challenges you\u2019ll face back in your home. Yet, ongoing care through group therapy as well as individual care may also be good for you.\r\n\r\nThe length of time you\u2019ll spend receiving outpatient care like this ranges widely based on your needs. Many people spend as much as six months getting ongoing support to ensure they have the tools they need to recover. This supportive design for services helps ensure you do not relapse.\r\nDon\u2019t Wait to Find Care \u2013 Turn to The Right Step First\r\nWhen will I need extended rehab care?
