When you choose to seek treatment for substance abuse, you are faced with an array of choices. You’ll have to decide on a rehab center, choose between inpatient or outpatient treatment, and navigate a variety of complicated questions. First among them is often how long your treatment program will be. Generally, a short-term drug rehabilitation program will last for 28-30 days, while long-term rehab programs can range from 90 days to 120 or longer. Some long-term treatment programs can even last for a year. Both long and short-term treatment offer their own advantages and drawbacks. While a long-term program may meet some clients’ needs, other residents have been turning to San Francisco Bay Area short-term rehab programs.

Benefits of Short-Term Drug Rehab
Each person will have a unique experience with addiction and will have their own recovery needs that must be met by their treatment provider. Oftentimes, individuals are referred to a long-term treatment program as the most effective rehab option, especially for those with serious, longstanding addictions. However, a long-term treatment program might not be achievable or necessary for everyone, and many clients can find success in short-term drug rehab programs. Some of the important benefits of a short term drug and alcohol rehab include:
- Less time away from responsibilities
- Affordable treatment options
- Comparable treatment quality to long-term treatment
Less Time Away from Responsibilities
The responsibilities of daily life sadly won’t always wait for treatment. Many clients find that taking more than 30 days for treatment isn’t feasible due to school, work, or family responsibilities. In these cases, a short-term drug rehab program may be the best possible option for care. Similarly, a shorter treatment period also incurs less disruption to the client’s personal life. They will have less time spent away from spouses, children, and friends, which can make maintaining their support structures and repairing potentially damaged relationships an easier prospect.
Affordable Treatment Options
Many insurance companies will cover some or all of your short-term treatment but most companies do not cover the cost of long-term treatment. Although long-term treatment options frequently cost less per diem than short-term treatment options, short-term treatment may end up being less expensive due to the shortened treatment duration. Thus, a short-term program may offer an effective treatment option at a lower cost. Short-term drug rehab can offer the opportunity for affordable and effective care.
Comparable Treatment Quality to Long-Term Rehab
Importantly, the shorter treatment time found in a short-term drug rehab program does not indicate a lesser quality of care. Though it is essential to receive treatment for as long as you need, our short-term rehab program offers the same quality of service as our long-term program and will help you develop a strong foundation for long-lasting sobriety. Additionally, treatment does not end when you leave the center. Rather, treatment at New Bridge Foundation® is just the first step in your treatment journey. Our short term program also offers many of the same benefits as our long term program, such as:
- Attentive 24-hour care
- Individual counseling
- Group counseling
- Family education and support
- Free aftercare for life
