Short-Term Drug & Alcohol Rehab New Brunswick

Last updated: Monday, 16, May 2022

Short-term residential drug treatment centers will usually provide the best services for addicts who are struggling with dangerous addictions, and this could be with large quantities of opiates, extreme alcohol addictions, and prescription-drug addictions. The short-term inpatient treatment process will offer controlled environments where patients can remain while they work through a tailored and standardized program. Detoxing from drugs is the first step to helping someone struggling with a dangerous addiction, and this could be either a traditional detox or a medical detox provided through short-term inpatient rehab centers. Typically, short-term residential drug rehab will provide in-house detox, and each patient will take the necessary time required to ensure they are physically and mentally ready for therapy. Dangerous addictions affect many families throughout the province, and one of the most common problems is alcohol addiction, which can be one of the more difficult addictions to treat because of the physical and mental problems alcohol can cause. Short-term residential drug treatment is the best choice for alcoholics, and effective aftercare such as meetings will help maintain their sobriety.

There is not a significant amount of drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers and programs in New Brunswick. Some of the services that are offered within short-term centers in New Brunswick include Christian-based treatment, programs for First Nations, and men and women-only treatment. The short-term drug rehab centers that are provided are offered through inpatient and outpatient centers throughout the province of New Brunswick. A short-term rehabilitation center is normally the typical 28-day program, and will not last any longer than that, but will still provide much of the same services that are found in long-term rehabilitation centers. Many families will go through an initial assessment to determine what type of short-term drug treatment will work for them. This assessment process can be done in-person or online and will ensure addicts can narrow down what options will work best for them in New Brunswick. Despite there being limited resources within New Brunswick, there are still resources to help treat moderate or severe addictions.

Will all short-term centers provide detox?

Not every short-term drug and alcohol rehab program within New Brunswick will be capable of providing onsite detox. Detox is the first step within any rehabilitation process and will help an addict through moderate or severe withdrawals before they enter drug rehab. The detox process will help to stabilize a patient through their withdrawals, and this can be done naturally or with the use of other medications when required. Detox programs that utilize medications are considered medical detox programs, and may not always be connected to short-term rehabilitation centers. When a short-term program provides detox onsite, they are also normally long-term rehabilitation but can offer clients short-term options as well. Some patients may attempt to detox at home, and this is not normally the best choice as it can be quite difficult to successfully manage withdrawal symptoms without the help of others. Withdrawal management is especially important for opiate drug users and addicts who are dependent on prescription drugs. The withdrawals from these particular drugs can be quite dangerous if not treated properly, but medical detox programs are the best choices to help patients in these particular situations. Medical detox centers will also assist their patients in transitioning into a short-term drug and alcohol rehabilitation center upon successfully completing medical detox.
