Vermont Drug And Alcohol Short Term Treatments

The state of Vermont offers just a few locations that provide short term residential services.  Most of these centers will provide a program that will last for about thirty days or less, and at that time, a person can potentially overcome their addiction.  

Drugs and alcohol have been destroying people’s lives for so long, but the right help is available to a person in need.  The state offers a variety of different options, with at least one solution being the right 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.


Many addicts whom are not willing to attend long term treatment facilities will be willing to check into a 28 day drug and alcohol treatment center because of the length of time.  This can be good and bad; good in a way that he or she wants to do something about it, bad in a sense the loved ones may not be convinced they are 100% willing to make a change.  Most addicts are never 100% willing to change until they start seeing some positive changes that they are creating for themselves.  At this point an addict will start to conform to the program and continue to make progress along the way solving their addiction problems.

Vermont Drug and Alcohol Short-Term Treatment Facilities

Resources listed on the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration websites only indicate there are five different short-term drug rehabilitation programs within the state of Vermont. This may not be adequate to help treat all types of addictions, and some families may have to look out of state for the proper help.

What does a patient need to bring to a drug rehabilitation center?

Each short-term drug and alcohol rehabilitation center will inform their clients of what to bring, but if these are residential programs, the client will typically have to bring the essentials they require to live there for a short time. Each center has a unique process set up to help their patients settle in comfortably.
