Long Term Addiction Treatment
Long Term Treatment Programs
Drug rehabilitation is the process of treating drug addiction, usually by medical or psycho-therapeutic methods. The purpose of long term addiction treatment is generally to stop addicts from using drugs, allowing them to avoid the legal, psychological and physical consequences of drug addiction. Scientific research clearly shows that an effective drug rehab program must address all of the patient’s needs rather than just the addiction. An addict’s motivation is also an important indicator or the program’s success. Gulf Coast Drug Rehab offers long-term drug rehab, which provides the best opportunities for an addict’s recovery.
How to Succeed
The success of a drug rehab program is measured by the ability of its graduates to remain sober over the long term. Long term addiction treatment is more likely to succeed because effective rehabilitation requires addicts to modify their behavior, which requires time to accomplish. These rehab programs consist of three phases of care, including primary treatment, sober living and outpatient support. Each of these phases must be effective in order for the program to succeed.
A traditional short-term drug rehab program lasts for a specific period, typically 30 days. Gulf Coast Drug Rehab offers a long-term program goal-based program, meaning that students must meet the goal of each phase, before proceeding to the phase. The average duration of this program is three months, depending on the student. Some students may complete the program in two months, while others may require four months. A long-term program is especially helpful for students addicted to hard street drugs such as cocaine, heroin or methamphetamine’s.
Gulf Coast Drug Rehab considers its clients to be students, rather than patients.

This program emphasizes personal responsibility and does not allow students to think of themselves as victims.
