Many alcoholism rehab programs are limited to 28 days of treatment. Long-term rehab, usually takes place in a residential environment over a period of 6 to 12 months, known as sober living.
This residential environment is often referred to as a therapeutic community since clients live in a communal setting. A therapeutic community provides an increasing degree of accountability and personal freedom that allows clients to slowly transition back to life in the real world. In 28-day programs, clients are restricted until they are released, making the return to everyday living much more difficult.
Many people have tried short-term rehab several times, only to relapse and return to drinking. Instead of repeating a process that has failed in the past, they should consider entering a long-term sober living environment. Immersion in a therapeutic community will help the recovering person change unhealthy habits, create a positive self-image and learn how to avoid the triggers that can lead to relapse.
