How long detox lasts depends on the severity of your addiction, how long you’ve been addicted, the presence of underlying medical conditions and other factors. On average, detox lasts for 3-10 days. During this time, you will be kept as comfortable as possible.

Once you complete detox, you will move onto residential inpatient treatment. This can last anywhere from 2 weeks to several months. Longer stays in rehab lead to more positive outcomes, so our goal is to get you as much time as possible. However, this will be influenced by the care you need and your budget.
