Our staff is almost all recovered addicts, so we know and understand what you’re going through.
Each day holds different activities for you while you’re in long-term rehab at 12 Keys, but all days include therapy and 12-step meetings. We’ll help you build a plan of recovery that addresses your individual physical, psychological and spiritual needs.
Should You Choose Long-Term Rehab?
One of the biggest drawbacks people think about with most 90-day rehab centers is being shut off from the outside world. This is not the case when you opt for the 12 Keys long-term drug rehab program. We allow you to have some access to your devices such as laptops and cell phones. We believe in real recovery and preparing you for life outside of rehab, so we want to help you learn how to balance your real world with your recovery.
At 12 Keys, you’ll be able to maintain some communication with your family, friends and business associates. This way, you’ll be building positive patterns in our program while still feeling connected to the outside world. In the end, you’ll learn to balance and better demonstrate your recovery in real-life situations both professional and social.
If you are unsure whether or not long-term rehab is for you, consider the following information about what stay in rehab longer than 30 days could mean for your future:
What to Expect in Long-Term Rehab
The 12 Keys model includes individual therapy, group therapy, 12-step recovery work, sponsorship, family support and more. You’ll make friends in recovery and put together a program that will serve you well once you leave 12 Keys. Through our holistic approach, you’ll have the opportunity to engage your mind, body and spirit with a number of activities you’ll find energizing and fulfilling.
At first, you need constant monitoring and treatment as you detox from addictive substances. After completing detox, you enter into an orientation and observation phase at rehab. It’s only after the staff has had a chance to get to know you better that they can suggest the best treatment plan to help you engage in your recovery.
Meet Friends and Counselors
You’ll meet people who truly care about your success. Although it can be scary to call a rehab center, when you walk in and meet the staff for the first time, you’ll feel like you’re coming home. These are people who have walked in your shoes. They’re recovered addicts themselves, and they know how it feels to admit you can’t control your addiction any longer.
Experience Individual and Group Therapy Sessions
While in a long-term rehab program, you’ll get the benefits of both individual and group therapy. Individual therapy is often based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT focuses on recognizing and altering thought patterns that lead to undesirable behaviors. During CBT, you’ll learn how to recognize thinking that leads to cravings and drug use. You’ll also develop communication, coping and relationship skills that will help you successfully navigate typical life situations drug-free.
Group therapy gives you a chance to share your feelings and explore your own patterns of behavior in a safe, supportive and structured environment. During group therapy, each person shares on a topic, and the acceptance and safety of being among your peers offers a healing environment.
Group therapy is a big part of our process. It’s designed to give you room to express the emotions and thoughts you encounter throughout the recovery process in a non-judgmental environment of peers who understand your struggles and support your success.
Coupled with individual therapy, this builds a secure bond of trust that is critical to your long-term recovery. Conversations you have in these settings are strictly confidential.
Get 12 Step Program Support
The program also includes 12-step meetings and support. The 12-step program offers a time-tested method of spiritual recovery for addicts that has helped thousands recover since its inception in the 1930s. You’ll attend 12-step meetings, find a sponsor to mentor your recovery work and work your program using the tools of recovery: attending meetings, sponsoring, making phone calls, serving, reading program literature and writing.
Rest & Relax in Nature
It’s not all hard work in a rehab program, however. There is still plenty of time to have rest and recreation into your recovery schedule. Recovery is hard work, and your body, mind and spirit all need time to recover and reset. Healthy, nutritious meals rebuild your body while providing time for you to get to know others in recovery. Exercise programs help you learn better self-care. Time for walks through the grounds, walks along the waterfront or other areas of natural beauty, a swim in the pool or simply a relaxing chat with others attending rehab are all refreshing parts of your recovery program.
Located in Jensen Beach, Florida, 12 Keys puts you in the heart of some of the best weather the world has to offer. You’ll be able to engage in plenty of outdoor recreation to refresh your mind, body and spirit as you recover.
Fishing, horseback riding, kayaking and swimming are just a few of the activities you’ll enjoy. We also take clients to a professional fitness facility where they can enjoy a great workout with a personal trainer.
These activities are essential to your recovery. You’ll be rejuvenating yourself while building new cognitive and emotional patterns. With this renewed version of yourself, you’ll find greater fulfillment and victory over addiction while treating yourself the way you deserve to be treated.
Enjoy Fun Activities
Many people wonder what they’ll do once they stop taking drugs. If drugs have dominated your life and lifestyle for a long time, you may need help learning how to fill your time without hanging out with your old drug crowd or taking drugs. When you need some down time, there are plenty of places to take a walk outside where you can enjoy Florida’s sunshine and the natural beauty that surrounds our center. Water sports, including kayaking, paddle boarding and swimming, are all available. If you’re new to these adventures, don’t worry. Your time with us is time to explore new possibilities, including hobbies and activities that you may not have thought you could do before.
In a good long-term rehab program, you’ll learn how to be productive, engaging in your own personal program of recovery and taking better care of yourself. The more time you have to learn these skills, the better.
Our goal at 12 Keys Rehab is to make your journey toward recovery as seamless as possible by removing obstacles which otherwise might stand in your way.
We will arrange and pay for your flights to and from rehab as well as any prescription medications during and related to your treatment at 12 Keys. All meals, activities, and most incidentals, including the gym, are also covered.
Why do Long-term Rehab Programs Work?
Studies support that long-term rehab is more effective than short-term rehab. A 1999 study indicated that people recovering from cocaine addiction were more likely to relapse if they were in a short-stay program and less likely to relapse if they were in a 90-day or longer treatment program. In fact, studies indicate that those who undergo more than 90 days of treatment tend to be 2 times less likely to relapse after their program.
Another study sponsored by the National Institute of Drug Addiction followed over 500 people in recovery. This study found that relapse rates were similar for people who stayed in treatment only a day or two and for people who attended treatment for less than 90 days. Relapse rates were significantly lower, however, if people remained in a treatment program for longer than 90 days. And, A 2001 UCLA study on 1,167 adolescents between the ages of 11 and 18 showed that adolescents who remained in longer treatment programs fared better than those in short-duration treatment.
If you are able to stay 30 days or longer in rehab, all signs point to more positive outcomes and a stronger, more successful recovery from drug and alcohol addiction.
Why Should You Choose Long-Term Rehab?
Almost everyone benefits from long-term rehab programs. Certain characteristics, however, alert recovery professionals to recommend longer stays in treatment for specific populations. These include:
- Relapse survivors. Relapse is deadly. Many people who relapse end up dying of an overdose. It’s essential that anyone struggling with a potential relapse commit to long-term drug rehab. If you’ve already relapsed, call us today. It’s time to return to rehab and immerse yourself in recovery again.
- Anyone with family history of addiction. For those with a family history of addiction or mental illness, a longer stay in rehab is usually recommended. A family history of addiction is a red flag that returning home after your stay in rehab may make maintaining recovery difficult. It’s hard to change your habits when your family continues with your old lifestyle.
- Those with a dual-diagnosis. Dual-diagnosis refers to being diagnosed with both a mental illness and drug addiction. It takes time for mental illness symptoms to manifest after detox. With our long-term rehab program, we provide plenty of time for an appropriate diagnosis and development of a treatment plan for both the mental illness and addiction.
- Cross-addicted people. If you’re dealing with cross addiction, which is having two or more addictions, may also benefit from longer stays in recovery. Many drug addicts are also addicted to alcohol, for example.. If you tend to replace one addiction with another or have multiple addictions, give us a call. You may benefit from long-term rehab.
The extra time afforded by long-term rehab is invaluable. Time makes room for the natural processes of healing your mind, body and soul. It also ensures you get the time needed to form new habits, which studies show is 66 days, and work through your individualized program.
Our program is custom-tailored to you and includes plenty of time for individual therapy, 12-step work, prayer, meditation, exercise and relaxation.
Long-Term Rehab versus a 30-Day Program
The average 30-day drug rehab program begins with detox. Depending on your personal situation, detox may take a few days or a week or more. After that, you need time to get used to being in treatment.
After spending several days in detox and several more days acquainting yourself with the detox facility, getting to know your therapist, sponsors and fellow residents and generally growing used to the entire rehab experience, you’re left with just about 14 days of treatment, not 30.
While you certainly can make a great start on your recovery in 30 days, for many people, 30 days isn’t enough time to truly embrace a new lifestyle. There’s a lot to discover and learn in your first few weeks of recovery. In order to have adequate time to work on your own personal plan of recovery, 60- or 90-day programs, or even longer residential-style treatment facilities, may be necessary.
If you’re seeking lasting recovery from addiction, 90-day treatment centers like 12 Keys are recommended over shorter programs. Think of the rehab process like you’re training for a marathon, not a sprint race. Short bursts of energy may work to get you out of tough situations that require quick action. However, endurance is critical if you want to make it to the finish line of a lifelong race.
The real work begins once you leave our facility. Our long-term rehab program can give you the tools you need to successfully navigate the road to recovery. Let 12 Keys help you develop the right patterns and a build stronger foundation leading to lifelong freedom from addiction.
