Short Term Substance Abuse Treatment in Utah

Short-term drug rehab centers can help addicts establish healthy routines and learn how to live healthy lives again. Despite the length of time you spend at a short-term rehab center in Utah is shorter than long-term programs, you can still accomplish quite a bit. Drug and alcohol abuse is damaging to the physical and psychological health of the addict. Even casual drug abuse can create long-lasting health problems, which cannot correct themselves unless you have the proper treatment. When you can establish a healthy new routine that is fixated on balanced meals, exercise, and positive well-being, your sobriety will be much easier to maintain. What many former addicts will do, once they have completed a short-term program, is to continue with therapy or counseling. This can be done at an aftercare program, or with more group and individual counseling sessions. Even when you have built a support network of other sober people, it will still be important to continue with routine and structure and maintain healthy living. It is not easy to overcome addiction, and short-term rehab centers in Utah can be an excellent option to help addicts with any type of addiction they are struggling with.

What is problematic about drug and alcohol abuse is it does tend to impact people from all walks of life. Across the state of Utah, some counties are more impacted by drug addiction than others. Carbon County has a population of just under 21,000 people, and between 2012 and 2016, there were 46 drug-related deaths within the county. During this time frame, the annual drug deaths per 100,000 residents were around 43, which was much higher than the state average. Regardless if you are abusing illicit street drugs or prescription drugs, a short-term drug treatment center can help you. When you make the choice to attend a short-term program, you are deciding that you want to beat your addiction for good. The short-term drug rehab centers in Utah do regularly treat addicts with all types of addiction. Statistically, more people do complete short-term drug treatment than those who attend a long-term program. However, this does not speak to the effectiveness of the program, nor the willingness of the addict. Despite the length of time is shorter at one of these programs, they can still help with the detox, therapy, and counseling, and even aftercare treatment if needed.


When looking for a 28-day drug and alcohol rehab center it is always good to take a look at what their statistical success rate is. It is also important to look at what kind of aftercare treatment is available and what kind of follow up is available for the addict when he or she leaves the facility. A 28-day program is considered a short term treatment facility, with each facility being different in how it operates. These are residential centers that will house and treat an addict for a period no longer than 28 days unless determined otherwise. Many of these centers are private, but a large number of them are government-funded or covered by insurance within the state.

Utah Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Centers offering Short-Term Care

Most former addicts will continue with their recovery long after they have completed drug rehabilitation, and this is one of the things a person in recovery can do to remain sober. Short-term drug rehab programs are available throughout the state.

Are medically supervised detox facilities available within rehabilitation centers?

Medical detox centers are available within many drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs throughout the state. The medical detox process is very important for drug users who are physically dependent upon some very dangerous drugs. This particular detox process will help a patient become physically ready for short-term drug rehabilitation.

Here is a list of the different short-term inpatient programs in Utah. The list can be incomplete so please do not hesitate to contact one of our treatment specialists at 1-800-304-2219.
