Drug and alcohol rehab programs in Ohio last for an average of one month. How long your addiction treatment program lasts depends on the rehab center itself as well as your health and specific needs.

On average, drug and alcohol rehab programs in Ohio last for 28-30 days. Ohio alcohol and drug rehab centers can provide shorter or longer treatment services, depending on your healthcare needs.

Drug or alcohol addiction treatment, also known as substance use disorder treatment, involves multiple phases and a variety of treatment approaches. Every patient may have a different experience with addiction, so the treatment each patient needs may also be different.

The goal of Ohio addiction treatment programs is to help you function without drugs or alcohol, and to reduce your chances of relapsing back into drug or alcohol abuse in the future.

The Length Of Your Rehab Program

Factors that can affect the length of your substance abuse treatment plan may include:

  • the length of your drug or alcohol detoxification program
  • the level of care you need
  • adjusting your treatment plan while in rehab

If you need additional treatment services, the length of time your alcohol or drug addiction treatment program lasts may increase.

Your treatment provider may use assessments to determine how long your rehab program will last. You can also contact your preferred addiction treatment center to learn about average recovery times there.

How Long Are Drug & Alcohol Detox Programs?

A detox program can last for anywhere between several days to multiple weeks. 

Detox programs may not be complete until your body overcomes a physical dependence on drugs or alcohol, so the length of time medical detox lasts may vary from person to person.

Different substances can have different withdrawal periods and withdrawal symptoms. For example, opioid withdrawal can last longer than alcohol withdrawal on average, which can lead to longer opioid detox programs compared to alcohol detox programs.

How Long Does Outpatient Treatment Last?

Regular outpatient treatment programs in Ohio may last for more than one month on average. 

Outpatient programs may take longer to complete compared to inpatient programs, because you do not receive 24-hour or constant treatment in outpatient care. Outpatient rehab programs in Ohio may require you to attend treatment sessions between three to five times per week.

How Long Are Intensive Outpatient Programs?

Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) in Ohio can last for more than one month on average. IOPs involve attending treatment sessions three to five times per week.

How Long Are Partial Hospitalization Programs?

Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) last for longer than one month. 

With a PHP, you receive intensive medical care to manage your withdrawal symptoms, mental health problems, and other issues that can happen during rehab. Partial hospitalization services may last for a maximum of 20 hours per day in Ohio.

How Long Does Inpatient Treatment Last?

Inpatient rehab programs in Ohio can last for an average of one month. Ohio treatment centers can also offer 60-day and 90-day inpatient rehab programs for appropriate patients.

During inpatient rehab, you may live at an inpatient drug or alcohol rehab center and have 24-hour access to treatment services. Inpatient treatment is an intensive level of care for patients who need constant supervision and medical care.

You may also go through daily treatment options such as medication-assisted treatment, behavioral therapy sessions, activity and wellness therapy, dual diagnosis treatment, and other services.

How Long Is Aftercare Available?

Aftercare services for drug or alcohol addiction may continue for weeks, months, or even years after you finish rehab. Forms of aftercare offered by Ohio treatment centers may include:

  • attending self-help or support groups
  • getting long-term individual or group therapy
  • referrals to recovery and sober living housing near you

When you finish treatment, you may be exposed to triggers, stressors, and cravings in your daily life, which can cause you to relapse.

Addiction recovery is a constant, ongoing process, and relapse may happen at any time. Aftercare or continuing care services may be offered by Ohio treatment facilities, which can give you the coping skills and mental health care you need to avoid relapsing.
