This is a longer term commitment for those heavily addicted to drug and/ or alcohol who may need more time to get sober from their years of long term abuse of alcohol and drugs. These addicts have developed habits that they need to learn how to break and re-learn new healthy ones to replace them with the assistances from the addiction professionals and counselors in the program to teach you how to stay clean and sober for the long term life recovery.
Most 90 day plans have an inpatient or out outpatient program but the inpatient programs have a higher chance of success. Most outpatients plans are designed for the addicted individual who cannot leave their current obligations for this extended amount of time. The longer plan is designed for the recovering drug addict or alcoholic to build a long term foundation for their life being sober. Many that have failed with sobriety and relapsed during the 30 and 60 day plans may choose this plan to continue learning other skills they did not get in the shorter plans like coping, refining social skills, developing meaningful relationships without the addiction.
This also helps to communicate with others in the same position or maybe further along the treatment program to validate that this is not just happening to the addict. In therapy, an addict will learn new skills to cope with their daily life issues using different types of therapies to help the addict physically and mentally and spiritually. These therapies could be yoga therapy, sometimes this includes learning to have meditation time, yoga therapy helps with the mind and body to a line together.
The 90 day plans will have you living on site while going through their treatment plans much like in the 60 day treatment plan. The addict will attend individual and group therapy sessions by trained substance abuse counselors who will teach you the skills of recognizing and dealing with the triggers or situations. Learn how to avoid them and recognize the ones that might lead you to a relapse. In group therapy sessions you will get support from others with addiction and who are going through the same daily challenges that you are dealing with. This can involve some family sessions where the addict and the family members will learn how to trust each other again. The addict and family members will learn how to express their feelings and thoughts on a healthy level by including them in the recovery process.
Most all plans have different approaches but will include many of these method IGT integrated group therapy deals with the addicts that might have two problems one physical like addiction and behavioral like bipolar disordering a group setting. Some will use the 12 step program methods and /or scientific methods.
The 90 day treatment plan is the usual plans most addicts choose who are addicted to cocaine, heroin, alcohol, etc. This inpatient plan helps addicts to have hands on time with the medical and therapeutic staff 24 hours a day for 90 days. These addictions did not occur overnight so learning new skills to not fall back into doing drugs or drink alcohol by learning more coping skills to add to their arsenal to live a sober and drug free life takes time, to become a normal skill or decision to choose on a daily basis. 90 days is a lifestyle change.
