With so many options available in the treatment world, it is difficult to determine what is the best path for your son or daughter.
Experts Agree: Effective Treatment Must Be More Than 30 Days
While short-term options may seem attractive for numerous reasons, experts recommend long-term rehab.
- According to research, more people complete residential treatment than other forms of alcohol or drug rehab. These programs tend to last anywhere between 3 months to a year.
- The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) states that treatment programs that last less than 3 months lack efficacy.
- The NIDA also states that the longer a person stays in treatment, the more likely they are to stay sober.
“Our drug rehab program is progressive, successfully preparing our clients for long-term sobriety & independent living.”
More than Just Being Sober: Why Sober Collge’s Long-Term Rehab Works
Since 2005, Sober College has helped thousands of young adults achieve sobriety through long-term treatment options that are designed to address their unique needs. As they progress through the program, clients are able to earn privileges and develop independence. It is a highly individualized journey that allows clients to take advantage of long-term treatment and utilize the many tools available to them.
1. Designed Exclusively for Young Adults
As an age-specific program, we are equipped to help young adults ages 18-26 address the unique challenges they face. Young adults are simultaneously establishing their identities and working to find their place in the world, which may make them more susceptible to outside influences. By focusing specifically on the young adult demographic, Sober College is able to delve deeply into the experiences of young adults while removing the influence of outside enablers. This makes treatment more meaningful and helps clients envision a life without substance abuse.

Our program also focuses on passion development through our music, film, and visual arts studios, competitive athletics, and academic program to help our clients engage with life in new ways, free from substances. Being around other young adults who are overcoming similar challenges, and with the support of our expert staff, your son or daughter will build a life, worth staying sober for.
4. Personalized Treatment and Individualized Care
Long-term treatment provides clients with the time and resources needed to figure out what practices will work best for them. Sober College works with clients to develop an individualized treatment plan that is malleable and can adapt to the changing needs of your child. This allows us to explore numerous methods of addressing addiction in a safe environment. Your child is afforded the time to explore, experience trial and error, and develop systems or habits that support their needs most effectively.
5.Your Child Won’t Fall Behind on Their Education or Career Goals
One challenge many families face in selecting a treatment program for their child is determining how it may affect their future or their educational or career goals. Because we work with the young adult demographic exclusively, we are able to provide additional resources that are important to young adults in recovery.
Sober College has partnerships in place to help your child obtain their GED or complete courses through an accredited college. Your child will lose no time in recovery and will find themselves on track with their peers while achieving sobriety. In addition to college courses, we also offer opportunities in vocational training to help your child stay focused and goal-oriented.
