Long Term Rehab Assessment Form
Note from the Website's Author:
I am semiretired after 30+ years of professional experience in the field of alcohol and drug rehabilitation and prevention. I have personal experience as well in dealing with addiction and finding a longterm drug rehab center because of a close family member’s long struggle with addiction. Successful recovery did not happen until my family member did a longterm drug treatment program.
Most of this site was written by his wife, the other leader in the long-term-drug-rehab. com company and website. When you call or write a professional counselor with 30+ years experience will respond.
It should also be mentioned that his wife was in the alcohol and drug rehab field as long as he has been. This is a woman that has never been ill of any consequence, but in February, 2014, she began having symptoms of gull bladder problems with abdominal swelling. On March 01, 2014, Mac, her husband drove through a snow storm to take her to an ER outside of the little town in which they were living. It was discovered that she had Stage III ovarian cancer and because she was so healthy in every other way, it took eight months before she lost her battle to this horrible disease.
Naturally, Mac is devastated but, as a past Medical Social Worker, he is dedicated to helping others identify the problems that can occur with our "modern" medical coverage. His wife would still be recovering if it weren't for major mistakes from the surgeon and others.
Mac appeals to you to contact him if you or a loved one is in any serious medical condition so that he can help raise your awareness of the pitfalls in taking medical advice without the proper knowledge and items to be aware of while making decisions that can end your life. Those who knew Mac and his wife over the 25 years that they were together, know how dedicated both of them were in finding the best programs for those addicted and, in her memory, Mac has refused to retire, but to continue to provide this valuable service which was one of the request of his wife before she passed on October 29, 2014.
Mac's experience includes governmental supervision and funding of rehabilitation centers, consulting for organizational and personal licensing and accreditation of rehab facilities and its staff, on-site surveys of over 150 drug rehab centers.
He and his deceased wife have seen what works and what does not and am here to help substance abusers and their families find the long term drug rehab center that has the best chance of success.
It is very aggravating to go to treatment and fail and there are things you can do to almost eliminate that possibility.
There are many very fine treatment programs all over the Unites States, but there are also drug and alcohol treatment centers that have very low success rate. It is important as a family member or a substance abuser to do your research.
We will help you based on our experience. We do not refer to programs that use substitute drugs beyond what is needed for withdrawal and detox. We also will not refer to long term drug drug rehab centers that are known for putting people on psychiatric drugs. We work to find long term drug and alcohol treatment centers where the substance abuser will come out able to have a successful life without the crutch of any kind of drugs.
It is my opinion that someone with a drug problem can recover without having to be on other drugs. It takes a lot of work which not all treatment centers are willing to do. When substitute drugs or psychatric drugs are given to a substance abuser, they do not have a chance to truly come back to their natural personality and their lives may not be as successful as ythey could be.
Why a Long term Drug Rehab Center?
It is well known that 30-day programs are NOT effective. I have reviewed over 100 30-day programs, on site, and none had a success rate over 20%. There are so many things in addict's life that need "fixing", that it would be impossible to accomplish this task in less than a 90 day treatment program. Therefore, it is better to look for a long term substance abuse treatment facility, even though it is the first time the person is seeking treatment.
If you are surfing the web to find information about appropriate long term alcohol and drug treatment programs, then you can save yourself a lot of time and confusion by calling and talking to someone who knows the types of treatment programs and what each does.
When you have finally decided on treatment for yourself or a loved one, finding the right treatment that will work is your next task.
Based on a short assessment, we will refer you to an effective long term drug rehab center that addresses ALL of the issues that have been proven to cause and continue one's alcohol or drug addiction. We don't believe that anyone should have to suffer from relapse and the disappointments that brings, when you can take the time to do a long term drug rehab program that will end your cravings and psychological disabilities that can only be addressed in a treatment porgram of 90 days or more.
In the pages of this web-site I will do what I can to provide useful information about types of treatment and helpful information about resources in the field.
Definition of terms:
"Long-term drug rehab"is a term that has historically been used for alcohol and drug rehab programs that are 90 days or more. This includes detox and treatment. However today, a treatment program that is longer than 30 days will call itself long-term.
Many centers are now calling themselves "Long Term Drug Rehab" when they are not doing any more clinical work than most short-term centers. If you are looking at a 12-step based program, it is very difficult to find a program that will take the patients through the 5th step. Most will stop at the 3rd because they believe that you can't ask a patient to examine their past until they have a year or more sobriety. This means that the person leaves treatment without confronting or dealing with their transgressions and everything they have done that they feel guilty about.
If you allow the patient to leave the treatment program before they have confronted their past, they are very unlikely to do so outside of the residential treatment setting, which is leaving them with many unhandled problems that will continue to re-stimulate them to crave drugs to handle the pain of their past transgressions.
So even programs that are long term based on time, may not address all the aspects of addiction and leave the person with unhandled issues.
"Short-term" alcohol and drug rehab are traditionally 28 to 30-day residential rehab programs. Again, this includes detox and treatment. There are very few people that have been addicted to alcohol and other drugs that report that short term treatment was sufficient to meet their needs.
Open Ended Programs are treatment programs that do not have a set time of treatment but based it in each person’s individual need
The time that is required for someone to make the life changes needed to give up an alcohol and/or drug addiction is different for everyone. Some people have been able to keep their lives together while they have been using and, therefore, they don't have as much remedial work to reclaim a successful life, but others have been doing drugs for most of their lives and the ONLY ways that they know how to survive is via alcohol and other drugs. These individuals my require six months or more treatment to learn the behaviors and skills necessary to be successful and not depend on alcohol and other drugs.
Don't find out which program you needed after the fact and after your budget is decimated by choosing the wrong treatment center!
It is difficult to navigate through the "treatment finding" or procurement process. It is BEST to call our counselors and let us help you with this process. 1-888-781-7060.
Types Of Long Term Drug and Alcohol Treatment Centers
Faith Based Drug and Alcohol Treatment Programs
Many of the long term drug rehab centers are faith based. They are often low cost and funded through churches and donations. These programs normally requires that the person has Christian faith and is willing to attend prayers and bible studies. Faith based long term drug ald alcohol treatment programs (when they are free or low cost) often require that the participant do some kind of work to contribute to the running of the center. This type of treatment can be very beneficial because it usually is long and the idea is that faith can help someone stay clean. Probabky the most well known faith based program is Teen Challenge. Teen Challenge has programs now for both adult women and men and they have one or more program in almost every state
Therapeutic Community Programs
There are other types of treatment that are long term but these are the main ones.
