What Is an Extended Residential Addiction Treatment Program?

extended residential program southern californiaAn extended residential addiction treatment program goes beyond the typical 30-, 60-, or 90-day stay. Standard inpatient or residential rehabilitation programs usually last between one month and 90 days since this is long enough to help most people through the worst of withdrawal symptoms and to assist with teaching them the coping skills they will need moving forward.

Extended rehabilitation occurs when a patient needs to remain in substance abuse treatment longer than the initial 90 days. Why would they need to stay? There are a few reasons:

  • Having complications with the detoxification process
  • Relapsing
  • Having a long-term addiction
  • Living with co-occurring disorders

The reason for someone staying longer is largely personal, but if they choose to, then they may remain in the program for up to a year, in most cases.

What Should You Expect During an Extended Treatment Program?

In an extended treatment program, clients should expect to continue building on their progress. If they are dealing with mental illness, the medical team will continue working with them to help them balance their brain chemistry and feel more like themselves.

Long-term clients should expect to work as hard during the latter months of their stay as at the beginning. Some would try new therapies if older treatment options did not work. Others may choose to work with a sponsor or begin more intensive sessions with a therapist to help relapse prevention.

What Are Some Therapies Used in an Extended Treatment Program?

At United Recovery California, we understand that each individual will have specific needs to address in treatment. Thus, we offer a range of addiction therapy programs so that each client’s needs are met. Our team also works with clients to adjust their treatment plan based on their progress. There are dozens of therapies that might be used in extended treatment programs. Some of them include:

  • Holistic treatments, such as massage or acupuncture
  • Creative therapies, such as art or music therapy
  • Animal-assisted therapy
  • Equine therapy
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy
  • Medication-assisted treatment
  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy

Many holistic and traditional treatments may be available. Everything from good nutrition and fitness to working on reentering normal daily life will be covered to feel comfortable as they get closer to graduating from the program.

What Happens After Graduating from an Extended Treatment Program?

Following graduation from an extended treatment program, those who wanted or needed longer-term care may opt to join 12-step programs or alumni programs offered through the clinic. They may also decide to become a sponsor or to live in a sober-living community or home, where they have less to worry about in terms of exposure to the substances they abused in the past.

Every patient is different, and what they do next is something they’ll talk about with the team at the facility before they leave.
