Frequently Asked Questions
Research shows that the amount of time an individual is engaged with treatment is the single best predictor of long-term success and sobriety. We highly recommend that clients commit to 60 to 90 days, however shorter stays of 30-45 days can also be appropriate depending on the circumstances. The actual length of stay will depend on many factors and can be as long as necessary to get our clients to a place in which they feel confident in their ability to live independently, including extended residence up to and beyond one year. Our client’s task, whether staying for 30 days, 45 days, 90 days or longer, is to fully engage in all aspects of their treatment as much as possible which is the other most important predictor of positive treatment outcome.
