Long-Term Treatment Produces Long-Term Results: Our 90-Day Comprehensive Program

Because long-term treatment produces the most successful results, the Alta Mira experts have created the most comprehensive 90-Day addiction treatment program available. If you’ve fought a difficult battle against addiction, you may find permanent resolution with this program. Our best-in-class specialists personalize this comprehensive program based on our extensive assessments and diagnostics, making your treatment plan a perfect fit for you. Along with our highly advanced clinical treatments, we integrate a mind-body-spirit approach to ensure that all of your needs are addressed.

If you want or need truly comprehensive care for complex addiction issues and co-occurring disorders, we have created this program for you. Research clearly indicates that treatment lasting 90 days or more is significantly more effective than treatment lasting fewer than 90 days. For this reason, we designed a long-term program that allows for deeper work on key recovery skills and relapse prevention.

Why 90 Days is Helpful

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.

We offer both a 30-day program and a 90-day program. The 30-day program is designed for people who are in treatment for the first time, have a straightforward detox, and do not have significant mental health or medical issues. For other clients, who have had treatment before but were not able to maintain sobriety, our 90-day program can give them the time and support to get through a difficult detox, stabilize their mental and physical health issues, establish healthy recovery habits, learn to develop a peer support system, and participate in intensive workshops.

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.

  • Remaining in treatment for an adequate period of time is critical.
  • 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.

At Alta Mira, we make it our purpose to create positive treatment experiences that lead to lasting recovery. If you’re interested in our 90-Day Program, we will work with you to determine if it’s truly your best option. In general, this program is the right choice if any of the following apply:

  • You’ve struggled with relapse in the past
