Asked: 2018-01-27 22:48:27
My beloved sister has struggled with an addiction to prescription pills for a long time. She talks about going to rehab but she never follows through because she’s concerned about how long it will take. What should I tell her?

My cousin went into a rehab near me for alco-hol.None of the family ever thought she would quit. She has been drunk since she was 17. She spent a year in rehab and finally was able to get sober. It only lasted 7 months then she started drinking again.

Rehab lasts as long as you need it to, it could be 28 days is could be a hundred and twenty days. It just depends on your needs. Also you could do outpatient rehab which is different, you stay in your own house.

You should tell her that, at the end of the day, it depends on her genetics, health, drug history, environment and more. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all answer, but some of the most common options are 30-day, 60-day and 90-day programs.

Make sure your sister knows how important it is for her to take the time to go through rehab and get better, no matter how long it takes. There are programs that last anywhere from 30 days to more than three months. I think the longer you’re in rehab, the better your chances of staying sober for good.

Alcohol rehab according to addiction blog> In patient rehab depends on the severity of an alcohol problem, a person may benifit from either traditional inpatient alcohol rehab or long-term alcohol rehab. So how long inpatient alcohol rehab lasts depends up on the individual diagnosis and situation. Traditional rehab program is at least 28-30 days. This is for moderate drink-ing. Others may be encouraged to stay 60 or even 90 days.

I think its important to first figure out what type of rehab you need. As each person is dif-ferent. So is each persons treatment.substance abuse treat-ment> explains the differences between inpatient and outpatient treatments. In patient therapy lasting anywhere from 28 days to a year sometimes more includes a structured day including prepared healthy meals, daily thera-py, evening activities, and staff supervision. Many find safety and comfort within the walls of the treatment facility as it is absent of old social contacts and trigger that could threaten ones efforts to overcome an addic-tion.
