Benefits of Short-Term Addiction Treatment
There are many proven benefits of short-term addiction treatment. Regardless which short-term level of care is chosen, treatment allows clients to focus on their recovery and mental health issues as their primary focus. Short-term treatment can be highly effective and enables participants to reduce their risk of relapse. For those seeking recovery from addiction, short-term addiction treatment may be the right option to assist them in achieving their goals and taking advantage of other valuable benefits, including:
- Gives clients a solid foundation for recovery in a relatively brief period of time, while allowing them to focus intensely on themselves and their addiction.
- Less time-consuming than long-term treatment which requires at minimum a 90-day stay. Although necessary for some individuals, a three to six month stay away from home can be less disruptive to family and livelihood.
- Enable clients to meet and bond with others who are also seeking recovery, resulting in the establishment of a sober, support network.
Short-term addiction treatment prepares an individual for lifelong success and sobriety. To learn more about how our client-centered services can benefit you or a loved one, reach out today by calling 866.772.8491.
What Is Addiction?
Addiction is defined as a compulsion to seek out and use drugs or alcohol despite negative consequences. Otherwise known as “substance use disorder,” addiction has been broken down by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) into the three categories “mild,” “moderate,” and “severe” depending upon various diagnostic criteria, including:
- The substance is taken more often or in higher doses than originally intended
- Persistent desire or lack of control to stop using
- Significant amounts of time are spent finding, using, and recovering from use
- Inability to manage responsibilities and obligations
- Avoidance of social activities or relationships because of use
- Use continues despite knowledge of risks of harm or injury
- Withdrawal symptoms
A person is considered to have a mild addiction if two or three diagnostic criteria are present; moderate if a person displays four or five symptoms, and severe if six or more behaviors are evident. While not every person who uses alcohol or drugs will display all of these characteristics, the scope and stage of addiction will determine the appropriate treatment. New Bridge Foundation®’s short-term treatment options are well equipped to assist individuals regardless of the severity of their substance use disorder.

How to Find Addiction Treatment in California
A short-term residential program can lay the foundation for those who suffer from addiction. Focusing on recovery in a residential setting can begin the process of recovery, success, and life-long sobriety. Short-term inpatient care provides momentum to the recovery process and is frequently used as a springboard by clients to solidify the gains made in residential treatment by continuing treatment on an outpatient basis once the residential program ends. Those who do not need or are not able to participate in residential treatment may opt to participate in our outpatient telehealth programs instead. Whichever program you choose, you will find yourself well-prepared for ongoing recovery after participating in one of our short-term addiction treatment programs.
