How Long Does Detox and Rehab Take?

Home » Blog » How Long Does Detox and Rehab Take?

 Addiction doesn’t stick to a schedule, and your recovery will be a lifelong process once you’ve made the decision to get help. But how long do detox and rehab take? There are generally some guidelines on what to expect, depending on the particulars of your situation.

At  Pacific Sands Recovery Center, the detoxification process can last as little as three days to as long as two weeks. During this time, our staff of professionals focuses on helping you get clean in a medically managed facility. We’ll help make the withdrawal process as comfortable as possible, potentially through the use of safe and effective medications. From there, we’ll help you stabilize and begin the first steps towards your new life.

Once detox is complete and your system is free and clear of all chemicals, the next step is to decide if you would like to continue recovery with inpatient residential treatment. Other aftercare options may include sober living, intensive outpatient treatment (IOP), or outpatient treatment (OP).

Pacific Sands Recovery Center’s boutique focus means that every step you take towards freedom from a substance use disorder will be customized to your own spiritual, emotional and psychological needs. How long you take to make each step is up to you, as well.

Starting your healing journey at Pacific Sands Recovery Center means you’ll participate in rewarding clinical group and one-on-one therapy sessions. Breath-work sessions, meditation, music therapy, self-care, and recreational outings, among other activities, are all techniques we use that can contribute to deeper healing and continued success once you leave our care.

To sum it up: Everyone’s path is different. At Pacific Sands Recovery Center, we will work with you to develop a detox, residential treatment, and after-care plan that fits your life and goals.

If you would like to learn more about detox, residential and outpatient treatment, or are ready to begin recovery now, contact one of Pacific Sands Recovery Center’s care coordinators to discuss your options.

I couldn’t possibly ask to be in such a “SAFE/COMFORTABLE” environment while receiving treatment for my addiction. I would just like to say Thank you sooo much to ALL the staff there from the Nurse’s to counselors and therapist all of you are a True Blessing in helping me through my journey of sobriety.

  • As a professional in the recovery field I have worked with many detox centers and none compare to The this one. Their staff is incredibly attentive and knowledgable regarding the needs of individuals seeking recovery from the very start. Their facility is welcoming and homey while remaining very luxe. I would recommend this facility to any loved one or friend looking to start down their journey of sobriety.
