Louisiana Drug And Alcohol Short Term Programs

A person can be battling a drug or alcohol addiction and still be functioning to a certain degree, meaning they may still have a job, family support and able to stay clean for extended periods of time.  Unfortunately, this is not always the case, and for many drugs and alcohol will only cause pain and suffering.

In the state of Louisiana, there are over twenty different locations that offer short term residential drug and alcohol treatment, with all the services you may expect.

Did you know this about short term drug treatment programs?

Short term drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs are usually associated with 28 day programs. This is not always the case, some short term programs will only last a couple weeks, but do have aftercare programs set up to help maintain sobriety.


For many addicts, having to complete a long term residential drug and alcohol treatment program is not always possible for them for a variety of different reasons.  A 28 day residential treatment center is a viable option for short term treatment and care.  The addict will live at the facility for a 28 day period and participate in all of the treatment options available to him or her.  When the addict has completed the 28 day treatment program they could have options available to them to attend and stay at a sober living environment to help with the transition back into society, look for work, and be around other sober individuals.
