New Hampshire Locations

Many inhabitants in New Hampshire and the nearby states suffer from addiction, but they can cure substance use disorders (SUD) with the proper care. There is a wide variety of treatment settings and programs for people in need.

Just find the right one and get treated for dependence to many various substances in different severity degrees. Lucky for you, State Rehabs allows you to look through available drug and alcohol rehab programs by care level, facility type and allowed insurance.

How effective is drug addiction treatment?

Every addicted person is different and requires an individualized approach. Consequently, one program is not necessarily better or more effective than another. 

However, we can help you characterize effective substance abuse cures with the help of the 13 principles that the National Institute on Drug Abuse outlines. Here they are:

  • It is crucial to remain in treatment for an adequate period of time.
  • Dependence is a complicated but curable disease that affects behavior and brain functioning.
  • An effective treatment should definitely include behavioral therapies like individual, family, and group counseling.
  • A single treatment plan can not be appropriate for everyone.
  • Most drug/alcohol-addicted people may as well have other mental health disorders.
  • The remedy must be readily available to all.
  • For the cure to be effective, it doesn’t have to be voluntary.
  • If the remedy is effective, it manages not only an individual’s drug/alcohol abuse but also other various needs.
  • To make changes in long-term drug abuse medically assisted detox is not enough by itself and it is only the initial stage of addiction cure.
  • Medications, as a vital element of remedies for many seekers, should be undergone together with counseling and other behavioral therapies.
  • Patients must definitely be tested for HIV/AIDS, hepatitis B and C, tuberculosis, and other infectious illnesses during the remedy process.
  • To meet the patient's changing needs, cure and service plans must be constantly assessed and modified as necessary.
  • As relapses are possible to occur during the cure, substance usage must be monitored constantly during the recovery process.

How long does drug addiction treatment usually last?

Commonly, usual lengths of addiction recovery include programs of:

  • 30 days
  • 60 days
  • 90 days

The length of your stay also depends on how much you want to remain in detox and individual/group therapies and aftercare services.

Detoxification Length

As we already know, detox is the initial step in remedy and its duration depends on various factors like:

  • Substance use disorder type
  • Patient’s age, weight, and physical and mental health
  • Whether it’s the first time passing detox or not
  • The duration of drug and alcohol abuse and withdrawal symptoms

As withdrawal symptoms may vary, detox will last between 3 to 10 days. Once a person is done with detox, he/she can start addiction recovery at either an inpatient or outpatient rehab facility.

Inpatient Treatment Length

During the inpatient/residential program people are to live at a rehab under monitoring and supervision. The stay may last between 28 to 90 days on average (sometimes even up to 6 months is possible).

Individual/group therapies, 12-step support groups, and other activities are included in inpatient rehabilitation. The duration of short-term plans is 28 to 30 days and they are suitable for people with a mild addiction. If patients choose outpatient remedies after inpatient ones the length changes.

Outpatient Treatment Length

The duration of this rehab can be much longer than the inpatient one as the therapy courses are set around the patient’s life.

The length of the programs depends on the person’s needs and progress in addiction recovery. On average, they last up to 6 months and include therapies that focus on relapse prevention, reinforcement of learned coping techniques, life skills, and support groups.

Long-Term Drug Rehabilitation

These services last from 30 to 90 days. People with more severe dependencies or a dual diagnosis/co-occurring disorder are appropriate for this option. In fact, long programs include the same things as the short ones but in this case, specialists and doctors go more in-depth with an addicted person.

Such rehabs also include residential remedy facilities, outpatient counseling, recovery meetings, and sober-living arrangements.

How do I Find the Best Rehab?

Knowing all details about available cure plans and options is not yet enough. You must also find the best rehab that corresponds to your individual needs. For that, the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse has provided a special quality care checklist.

Some rehabilitation facilities offer features that are not effective to treat dependence. Just look through the checklist and with your qualified addiction professional determine if the rehab you have found meets the following points or not:

  • The cure plan must be licensed and accredited.
  • There should be a range of effective treatments available (instead of only one).
  • The addiction medicine doctor and psychiatrist must be on staff all the time.
  • Your care plan should be overseen by one or more doctors with qualified training and experience in treating substance abuse issues.
  • In case of relapses, the center mustn’t automatically kick them out of the remedy process.
  • After the cure is over, there must be provided continuing care and support.
  • There should be available at least three hours of effective therapy sessions weekly.
  • For other medical disorders of the patients, there should also be available therapies.

These qualifications show that the rehab meets the state’s standards.
