Long-Term Rehab in Nebraska

Although all types of treatment can be successful, it is our professional opinion at Addicted.Org that a long-term treatment program is the most effective approach – here are some reasons why:

  • A long-term program can last anywhere from 1 to 3 months and can even last longer depending on the needs of each person.
  • Since the person lives at the facility, they spend every waking moment focusing on overcoming their addiction, which offers a more intensive routine and removes any other distraction or trigger.
  • Most long-term programs offer individual counseling as well as family counseling, ensuring that all dynamics are addressed during the treatment program.
  • The length of the program is also beneficial in that it can help a person work on themselves and develop new ways to cope and to avoid relapsing once they leave.

Long-Term Rehab for Specific Demographics:

  • 15 long-term programs for both adult men & women.
  • 2 long-term facilities for adolescents.
  • 4 long-term treatment programs for seniors and older adults.
  • 4 long-term rehab services offer services to the LGBTQ+ community.
  • 6 long-term programs cater to the needs of pregnant & postpartum women.

Treatment Breakdown in Nebraska


Nebraska has 11 detox programs according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. In a person’s recovery, detox will most likely be the first step, which makes it an essential part of the process.

Short-Term Rehab

Throughout the state of Nebraska, there are 26 short-term programs, according to the SAMHSA directory. This form of treatment is ideal for those who do not have a long history of addiction, as it typically lasts 28 days or less.

Long-Term Program

Long-term treatment is more present in Nebraska than short-term programs, with 26 facilities in the state, based on the SAMHSA directory. It is an effective option for any type of addiction, and offers its services to various individuals, making it more accessible.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment can be the most accessible type of substance abuse rehab, because the person does not need to live at the facility. For those who cannot afford to leave for an extended period, an outpatient program is the ideal choice. It does require a strong support system to ensure that sobriety is maintained during and after treatment. In Nebraska, there are 97 outpatient treatment centers available, per the SAMHSA directory.

Nebraska Drug Facts and Statistics

Heroin is available in small quantities in the rural sections of the state. Club drugs are major problems in Nebraska where the users are under the impression that these drugs are safe. LSD and PCP are rarely found.

According to a Nebraska Treatment Episode Data Set, there were 12,182 drug treatment admissions in 2019 and the number of drug treatment admissions has been decling over the last several years. Amphetamines were responsible for the most treatment admissions totaling 30.8% of all admissions though alcohol was close behind with 27.8% of all admissions. Men are responsible for a larger portion of the drug treatment admissions reaching 66.4% compared to the women. 

Methamphetamine is a problem in Nebraska, crystal meth being the most popular form available. Although the local meth laboratories are not as big a threat as they once were, the importation of methamphetamine in Nebraska poses a serious problem to all of Nebraska's population.

When methamphetamine is taken in large doses, even the short-term effects can be undesirable. High-dosage users often get, among other things, a fever; they lose their coordination as it pertains to body motion. They can get tremors and headaches which sometimes lead to dizziness.
