Short-term drug rehab programs are outpatient or residential facilities that only offer treatment services for 30 days or less. It is not a long-term program but is also effective in treating most forms of substance use and addiction.
Yes, they work just as well as any other drug rehab program, but it should be determined prior to treatment if it is the best option. An addiction assessment helps to determine if short-term drug rehab is the best choice.
The cost of short-term drug rehab depends on whether the program is private or publicly funded. Private short-term drug rehab costs between $10,000 to $15,000 or less. The cost is determined by the type of program, counseling methods, and amenities it offers. Publicly funded drug rehab programs are covered by provincial health care plans.
A short-term drug rehab is not for everyone. An addiction assessment is the best way to determine if this approach is the best option. Short-term drug rehab programs benefit individuals who do not have a long history of drug abuse or who have been through other forms of substance use treatment.
