How to Measure a Rehab Success Rate

People struggling with substance abuse frequently turn to rehab for help, which is an excellent idea as addiction and drug abuse can be extremely dangerous to health. Unfortunately, not everyone succeeds with their treatment programs - in fact studies indicate only a small fraction can overcome their addiction and remain sober for extended periods. A common way of measuring rehab success rate is counting how many patients complete their program successfully; however this only gives part of the picture and doesn't take into account how many addicts experience relapse once their program ends.

Rehab can only be successful if individuals commit themselves entirely to their recovery, something which may be difficult given that it requires opening up about personal issues and attending therapy sessions; but if this commitment can be fulfilled successfully then sobriety may well become possible.

Another key element in rehabilitation success is program length. Research shows that longer-term programs, those lasting 90 days or more, tend to have higher success rates than shorter programs due to providing individuals enough time and support to learn how to cope with addiction and other underlying issues. It is also crucial that facilities offer high staff-to-patient ratios so medical professionals are able to provide adequate care and assistance during treatment.
