90-Day Addiction Treatment

90-Day Residential Drug and Alcohol Treatment Program

Our 90-day drug and alcohol rehab program can help you find a long-term resolution.

Our Transformational 90-Day Program was designed to help you find a long-term resolution and achieve sustainable recovery. Our comprehensive program was developed for clients with complex needs and is particularly helpful with successfully treating significant co-occurring disorders and chronic relapse. Along with our highly advanced clinical care, we integrate a mind-body-spirit approach to ensure that all your needs are addressed.

What to Expect During Alta Mira's 90-Day Program


If you want or need truly comprehensive care for complex addiction issues and co-occurring disorders, our program will allow you to focus on the deeper work needed to address your individual issues and best develop your key recovery and relapse prevention skills.

Your treatment starts with our highly advanced medically-supervised detox and evaluations conducted by our medical team. You and your therapist will then engage in comprehensive treatment planning that looks at your goals, motivations, and needs across all areas of life.

As you proceed through treatment, our neuropsychological assessment team engages you in a series of diagnostic testing and assessment sessions tailored to your specific clinical profile. The results of these sessions illuminate diagnostic considerations, identify strengths and resources you possess, and shape continuing care recommendations.

Throughout the duration of treatment, you will participate in our full clinical program, which includes:

  • At least 3 individual sessions per week with a primary therapist
  • Daily group therapy (includes DBT Skills, Process Skills, Principles of Recovery, Somatic Awareness)
  • Neuropsychological and psychological assessments to better inform accurate diagnosis and advise medical recommendations
  • In-depth family work and the option for loved ones to attend multiple 4-Day Family Programs
  • Experiential therapy (activities may include equine therapy, ropes courses, art therapy, psychodrama, hikes, kayaking, ziplining, and excursions focused on recovery principles)
  • Rejuvenating holistic services (massage, yoga, acupuncture)
  • Four 3-day intensive workshops and two advanced 1-day workshops
  • Individual sessions with Somatic Experiencing Therapist and Experiential Program Manager
  • Support groups (12-Step, SMART Recovery , Refuge Recovery)
  • Access to local temporary sponsors for support through the early stages of treatment and recovery
  • Incorporation of supplemental evaluations/therapies through external providers as needed (EMDR, CBT, CBTi, couples intensives, spiritual counseling, medical specialists)
  • Individualized relapse prevention and continuing care planning

Why a 90-Day Treatment Program is Beneficial


Addiction is a disease with physical, psychological, spiritual, and relational components. Just stopping the use of a drug doesn’t teach us anything about how to maintain sobriety. It takes time to learn how use the skills taught in treatment. Longer-term treatment provides the opportunity to learn and practice these skills.

National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) research supports the idea that increased lengths of stay predict a greater likelihood that a person will stay sober. Other studies have found similar results in improved outcomes based on time in treatment.

  • The appropriate duration for an individual depends on the type and degree of the patient’s problems and needs.
  • Research indicates that most addicted individuals need at least 3 months in treatment to significantly reduce or stop their drug use and that the best outcomes occur with longer durations of treatment.
  • Recovery from drug addiction is a long-term process and frequently requires multiple episodes of treatment. As with other chronic illnesses, relapses to drug abuse can occur and should signal a need for treatment to be reinstated or adjusted.
  • 90 days provides the time to complete even a complex detox and move progressively through structured phases of treatment
  • The Transformational 90-Day Drug and Alcohol Treatment Program at Alta Mira allows for deeper work on individual issues, key recovery skills, and relapse prevention
