Throughout the UK, many different rehab centres offer many different types of programmes and lengths of stay. However, whilst short-term rehab stays are commonplace, they are not always recommended.
Short-Term Rehabs: 3-Week Residential Treatments
- Whilst 7 day programmes seem to be a growing trend, we know that they are not the best solution available for long-term users or people seeking treatment help for the first time.
We understand why patients want shorter rehab stays. They want it over as quickly as possible and often have commitments they are not willing or prepared to step away from.
A 3-week residential stay is available at our rehab facility, however, it is combined with intensive therapy that you can take advantage of from the comfort of your home because no addiction treatment is fully complete without a diagnosis and therapy to follow.
Let’s find out more…
The most common rehab durations are:
- 7 days: Detox only
- 28 days/30 days: Detox, group sessions
- 35 days: Detox, diagnosis, 1-1 & group therapy
- 60 days: Extended days for long-term users
- 90 days: Max stay for individuals suffering from severe mental health distress
Finding out what will be best for your addiction will need to be assessed by an addiction specialist and a psychiatrist.
Whilst we will be able to work with you in what will work best for you too, we find it is always best to start with the advice of medical professionals, who will know how to handle your recovery successfully and safely.
Castle Craig is made up of 32 medical professionals including consultant psychiatrists, nurses, doctors and therapists. It is in our medical opinion that the longer you spend in rehab, the better your chance of success of sustained recovery.
Addiction is a disease and it’s not cured overnight.
Bearing in mind that some patients are unable to commit to long stays at a rehab centre, we have created a low-cost, effective addiction programme that works around them.
Our PRO Pathway programme combines therapy and residential rehab to give you an all-around, successful experience if you are fully committed to change.
The programme is 3 weeks of inpatient detox and residential rehab, here we will get you clean and sober with safe detoxification that’s medically managed and supervised. Then, we will be ready to diagnose any underlying mental health disorders that may be fuelling your addiction.
Next, you’ll get to experience a short introduction to our therapies, where you will meet our therapists and begin to learn the essential routine that you will be expected to continue through the coming weeks.
Once three weeks at our facility in Scotland has ended, you will then get to go home and prepare for three weeks of intensive online therapy.
This makes the programme a total of six weeks but can be more manageable for individuals who cannot commit to longer stays as well as those who have relapsed after a long period of sustained sobriety.
