AlcoholAnswers.org is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We strive to provide evidenced-based material for those seeking information on Alcohol Dependence (Alcoholism) and a sense of community through our Discussion Forums.
Treatment Options Overall treatment plans consist of three components: medical, psychosocial, and support from loved ones and people who have experienced alcohol dependence or abuse. Each patient will require a combination of resources to suit their individual treatment needs. These are not competing assets but complementary to one another. See Treatment Option Brochure.

Residential Treatment

Return to Treatment Options Home
Peer Support

Residential rehabilitation programs consist of the patient living in the facility for varying lengths of time. The 'standard' stay is 28 days, but can be more or less, depending on the needs of the patient. It is a highly structured environment, which includes group therapy, individual therapy and education. Some facilities have medical professionals available 24/7, which is helpful during the first phases of treatment, and especially if medical detoxification is performed at the rehabilitation facility.1
