What to Expect in a 60+ Day Rehab Program

The goal of a 2- to 3-month-long rehab program is to remove the distractions of daily life and provide patients with a safe, substance-free environment where they can focus on recovery. Patients learn to make behavioral changes and develop the skills needed to stay sober and avoid relapse.2

For many people, rehab starts with a short-term detox program, and is generally followed by comprehensive treatment. Long-term treatment programs may involve different levels of care, and look similar to the following example:

Depending on a person’s needs, addiction is often treated with a combination of medication and different therapies, such as:3, 4, 5, 6

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), which helps curb unhelpful thoughts and behaviors that contribute to addiction.
  • Contingency Management (CM), which provides tangible rewards for positive behaviors.
  • Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET), which helps someone become more motivated to make changes in their life.
  • Family therapy, which can help repair and rebuild relationships.
  • The Matrix Model, which is a multidisciplinary approach designed to treat stimulant abuse.

While treatment of any length can be beneficial, improved outcomes are associated with longer durations. The National Institute on Drug Abuse explains that the amount of time spent in rehab is important, and most people “need at least 90 days in treatment to significantly reduce or stop their drug use.”1

At River Oaks, we offer a wide range of evidence-based treatments that can lead to positive outcomes. Our individualized approach means we’ll find the therapies best suited to your needs. In addition, we also offer holistic and recreational therapies, wellness groups, and skills-building to provide a comprehensive, whole-person approach to treatment.

What Happens After a Long-Term Addiction Treatment Program?

Recovery doesn’t end once you’ve completed treatment. Adjusting to life after rehab can be challenging, which is why addiction specialists recommend continued care as a way of obtaining ongoing recovery support. This can look different for everyone but might mean participating in regular mutual support groups, attending alumni events, or engaging in individual counseling.

River Oaks has a robust rehab aftercare program with various offerings to assist you throughout your recovery journey. This includes enrollment in our Outcomes Recovery program and use of our Alumni App. Our on-staff case managers will ensure that an aftercare plan is in place before you leave the facility, so you’ll have the tools necessary to stay connected to our community and sustain your sobriety.

Does Insurance Cover 60+ Days of Drug & Alcohol Rehab?

Health insurance may cover addiction treatment in Tampa, Florida. Due to the passage of the Affordable Care Act, substance abuse treatment is now considered an essential health benefit and more accessible than ever before.7

River Oaks is an in-network provider for many insurance plans, such as Humana, Aetna, First Health Network, BlueCross BlueShield, and Tricare, among others. River Oaks and other facilities also offer other ways to pay for rehab to help cover additional costs.
