10-Day, 14-Day, & 21-Day Drug Rehab and Detox in CaliforniaYou are here:
Design for Change Recovery offers customized detox and rehab programs for each client. We realize that each person has different needs and obligations to consider when planning a treatment approach. For individuals who can’t commit to an inpatient program, we provide short-term rehab options such as 10-day, 14-day, & 21-day rehab.
Our intensive, short-term rehab programs are conducted in a supportive, structured environment, overseen by skilled, compassionate staff and medical professionals. The length of the program is based on how severe your addiction is, among other factors.
What to Expect in 10-Day, 14-Day & 21-Day Short-Term Rehab
The first part of 10-day, 14-day & 21-day rehab consists of an intake process that includes a comprehensive assessment. Our treatment advisor will gather information that will help us plan the appropriate treatment approach for your needs. Some of the things we need to know are your medical history, substance use history, mental health issues, and so on.
The next step involves a medical evaluation to assess the status of your overall health. The exam will identify whether you need detoxification and have underlying health issues. The medical evaluation typically involves screenings, lab tests, and a physical examination.
The program itself consists of detox (if needed) and various therapies and counseling. Depending on the length of the program, you may participate in some or all of the following:
- Group and Individual Counseling
- Skill-Building Classes and Activities
- Experiential Therapies
- Holistic Therapies
- Aftercare Planning
Short-term rehab can be done on an outpatient basis if necessary. However, you should have a strong support system to help you stay on track. An outpatient program is best for people who have mild to moderate addictions and can’t commit to an inpatient program.
How Long Does Detox Last in Short-Term Rehab?
The length of time you remain in detox is based on the substance involved, the duration of the addiction, and any underlying physical or mental health issues. Because some drugs cause intense or dangerous withdrawal symptoms, detox may take longer. Generally, for people with mild to moderate addictions, detox will take about 7 days. But, keep in mind this timeline is not the same for everyone.
The detox period can be shortened with medically assisted detoxification. Medications are administered to help reduce the discomfort of withdrawals and minimize cravings. They are also vital to helping prevent seizures and delirium tremens. The most common drugs administered during detox are naltrexone, methadone, and buprenorphine.
Common Withdrawal Symptoms During Detox
Each person experiences different levels of discomfort during detox. Due to differences in physical health and the severity of addictions, it’s difficult to predict which symptoms will appear. Despite these factors, most people experience some common withdrawal symptoms such as:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Changes in appetite
- Sleep difficulties
- Aches and pains
- Anxiety, depression, irritability
Not everyone will have all of the above symptoms, and some people struggle with severe withdrawal symptoms such as:
- Panic attacks
- Irregular heart rate
- High blood pressure
- Delirium tremens
Because the severe symptoms can become life-threatening, no one should attempt detox on their own.
What Happens After 10-Day, 14-Day, & 21-Day Rehab?
Short-term rehab is not a cure for addiction, but it does help you build a foundation for continued abstinence. The best way to prevent relapse after short-term rehab is to engage in various aftercare programs such as:
- Support Groups
- Step-Down Programs
- Outpatient Therapy
- Continued Medical Care
- Lifestyle Changes
- Self-Care Techniques
- Relapse Prevention Strategies
Remember, if relapse happens, don’t give up. Many people relapse in the early stages of recovery. How you respond to a relapse is the key. For instance, reach out to your counselor or support team for advice and support. Relapse may be a sign that you need longer-term rehabilitation or more intensive treatment.
Does My Insurance Cover 10-Day, 14-Day, & 21-Day Rehab?
