The standard 28 day rehab program often fails. It’s usually just not long enough to get someone stably sober. When you consider that someone did not become addicted in 28 days – it may have taken many months or years of scaling up to full on addiction – it a hard road to rehab in 28 days.
However, 28 days is what insurance will generally pay for. When parents and loved ones come to Narconon for help, they often ask if rehab works and if it can be done on a limited time frame. The answer is no. But their program ‘takes as long as it takes’ as their goal is a drug-free, stable and winning individual.
