Treatment recommendations are based on severity of illness and prior history of substance abuse. For some, it is medically necessary to begin with detoxification/residential treatment. For others, beginning with day treatment or the intensive outpatient program may be best.
Inpatient length of stay averages 23-30 days and Intensive Outpatient is usually from 20 to 24 sessions over a 6 to 8 week period. Transfer from one service component to another takes place as the person progresses through treatment.
