What happens in rehab depends on the type of rehab you attend, but most rehabs follow a similar framework of therapies. In most cases detox is required and is followed by residential inpatient rehab. After detox and residential rehab the individual will be put into an outpatient program and live in a structured sober living environment, also known as a sober living.
Detox usually takes 7-14 days depending on the substance[s] the individual is detoxing from. Once out of detox the individual goes into residential inpatient treatment where they have 24/7 support and daily drug addiction therapy. Once residential inpatient treatment is completed the individual getting treatment will usually move into a sober living. While living in the sober living they will attend outpatient therapy until their drug counselor deems them fit to leave.

There are many types of outpatient treatment programs. Outpatient treatment programs vary in length and intensity. In most cases outpatient treatment follows residential treatment, but this is not always the case. Depending on the severity of the individual’s addiction they may opt for outpatient therapy so they can keep working, going to school, and keep up with responsibilities
