Utah Short Term Programs For Drug And Alcohol Abuse

Searching for a treatment center does not have to be a horrible process to go through.  Given the circumstances and how hard things can be with an addiction or watching someone goes through it, help can be found right away.  

The state of Utah offers over twenty different locations that provide short term residential treatment for a drug or alcohol addiction.  All of these locations provide different types of services, but all will be able to provide help for you or your loved one. 

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.


When looking for a 28 day drug and alcohol rehab center it is always good to take a look at what there 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 then 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, and in fact, there are 31 programs listed on the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration site, which offer short-term treatment.

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.
