At New Bridge Foundation, our long-term residential rehab (START) is designed to help residents overcome their addictions. The severity of an addiction varies dramatically from person to person. For those who require intensive treatment, have struggled with chronic substance abuse, or have relapsed in the past, START is an ideal choice.

The Duration of Long-Term Residential Rehab (START)

Typically, a short-term recovery program lasts around 30 days. In contrast, our long-term residential rehab program (START) typically lasts from three to six months. The longer duration allows residents to build and strengthen their recovery. It also helps build healthy habits and routines that become an integral part of daily coping mechanisms.

The Benefits of START

START is an excellent option – not only because of its 24/7 support – but because it teaches residents how to abstain from drugs and alcohol while leading happy, productive lives as described in our client provided testimonials. Residents have the benefit of time as they learn which behaviors have gotten in the way of success and how to change them to ensure a lasting recovery and successful future.

The program is especially effective for individuals who have tried short-term treatment in the past. If short-term or outpatient care didn’t work, long-term residential treatment is the best option for lasting recovery.
