How Long Will Treatment Take?

Depending on your needs, the severity of your addiction and various other factors it may take up to 120-days or more for you to fully recover from addiction. However, most people find that 90-days of treatment is the ideal starting point for recovery. In fact, NIDA recommends 90-days of treatment in order to reverse addiction and replace the old, negative habit with a new, positive habit such as exercise or healthy eating.

Some factors can prolong your recovery efforts. For instance, you will likely require substantially more time in an inpatient rehab center if you are struggling with dual diagnosis or if you are addicted to more than one drug. Likewise, if you’re addicted to benzodiazepines or to alcohol you may require a longer time in rehab because your detox will generally take 30 days or more.

Treatment lengths vary based on the following:

  • Your age and how long you have been abusing drugs or alcohol. Older people tend to require longer time to heal.
  • Your health and whether there are underlying health conditions or dual diagnosis. Mental illness affects 50% of all addicts so there’s a good chance that you will require dual diagnosis treatment.
  • Your commitment to recovery. While commitment isn’t everything, if you are committed there will be less resistance to the treatment being offered and you are more likely to excel in the healing process versus someone who is not committed.
