3 to 14 days
The addiction recovery treatment known as detox, refers to a medical process of titrating the addict off their drug of choice, with the aid of medications, and round the clock monitoring of their vital signs. This medication managed process can take anywhere from 3 to 14 days.
30 days total (which total includes the 3 to 14 days of Detox)
The addiction recovery treatment know as residential treatment, refers to the next phase of addiction recovery treatment. Residential addiction recovery treatment can take up to 27 days.
Partial Hospitalization (PHP)
The next phase of recovery is called PHP which refers to a partial hospitalization program. This phase of addiction recovery treatment can be as short as 7 - 10 days, or last as long as 21 - 30 days. Now the resident is introduced to a more structured program of 5 days a week, 7 hours a day. The focus here is discussions about 12-step programs, anger management, regular attendance at AA or NA meetings, and regularly scheduled therapy sessions to address the underlying emotional issues which created the need to self-sooth with their drug of choice in the first place.
Sometimes Clients in an IOP, (intensive outpatient addiction recovery treatment program) become overwhelmed by emotions which they had been use to medicating away with their drug of choice. This can lead to overwhelming anxiety, aggressive behavior, withdrawal from friends/family/meetings and eventually to a drug relapse. Before the Client actually relapses with their drug of choice, they can chose to do a behavioral detox. This is only for 3 days, during which they receive round the clock care from care coordinators and their case manager. It's like hitting a re-set button by being taken care of for 3 days so the Client can "catch their breath" and return fresh to their IOP program.
