Short-term Residential Treatment for Alcohol and Drug Addiction

Is Short-term Residential Treatment Effective for Alcohol and Drug Addiction?

Having the desire and commitment to overcome drug or alcohol addiction is the most critical factor in successfully achieving sobriety. Once you have that, the next step is determining which type of treatment program is the right one for you. Options for alcohol and drug treatment programs include inpatient rehab centers, short-term residential, outpatient, and intensive outpatient services.

Making the Decision for Short-Term Executive Residential Treatment

Domus Retreat Private Patio

First and foremost, we need to understand that addiction is not just one issue consisting of substance abuse, but a combination of long-lasting concerns, often with severe emotional consequences. A condition that needs to be addressed individually and collectively. Being able to successfully detox allows an individual to be emotionally transparent and present so a professional can make an accurate diagnosis of the root issues.

While deciding between short-term rehab options or long-term residential treatment, one needs to 

consider treatment risks and benefits and outside factors that may come into play.

For example, some of those are:

  • Is the social environment surrounding the individual tainted or dangerous?
  • Is staying away detrimental to someone’s professional and family life?
  • Are there other people in the home of the client using drugs or alcohol?
  • Is the intensity of addiction-related meetings in a rehab center a cause for cravings?

Other common determining factors include confidentiality, limited time off from work, financial issues, insurance coverage, family responsibilities, and other factors.

One thing to remember is that a short-term residential stay can provide detoxification and emotional diagnosis. Both essential steps towards achieving lasting recovery, which makes short-term residential treatment an attractive and effective option for many.

For the right person, short-term programs can offer comprehensive and life-changing opportunities.

Are you in need of opioid or alcohol detox but cannot afford to be away for 30 days?

Staying in treatment for an adequate period of time might be critical in achieving positive results, but that amount of time is not the same for everyone. The appropriate inpatient treatment duration depends on the type and degree of the patient’s emotional and physical issues and unique needs. Additionally, everyone’s progress through treatment is different, so predetermining addiction treatment length is not always wise.

The other problem with a 30, 60, or 90-day drug rehab is that the long commitment may cause people to delay seeking help. Not everyone can just drop their responsibilities for such an extended period of time. Actually, the damage of such a long absence from daily life can make those who achieve sobriety want to relapse upon their return. For this and many other reasons, it is imperative to have a short term treatment for alcohol and drug abuse.

At Domus Retreat Executive Treatment, there are not pre-set programs. Once you call us, we will carefully listen to what you have to say, answer any concerns you have, and try to create the best treatment to fit your unique needs. For instance, you might come in for a one to two-week inpatient program now and do another week in a month. Treatment options are ample, so our wish is to help you get where you want to be.



Is privacy and confidentiality at a drug or alcohol treatment program a priority for you?

In the early 70s, congress realized the issue of stigma surrounding those struggling with substance abuse. The Confidentiality of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Patient Records was enacted to protect the privacy and shield people from society’s harmful stigma. Later in 2001, congress added the “Privacy Rule” (“Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information”) to the law to protect patients even further.

Although the law protects your records, it does not limit what other patients will share outside the facility. For that reason, if confidentiality is essential for you, a small and intimate treatment center might be the right choice. Furthermore, a rehab center that provides you with a private, spacious suite can give you the privacy you’re looking for.
