Why is 90 Days the Golden Ticket for Recovery?

Why is 90 Days the Golden Ticket for Recovery?

Going to treatment may not seem like winning the lottery, but it is the closest a person can come in recovery. Even traditional 30 day programs may not be suitable for most people who desire to make lasting change in their lives. The longer programs are designed to take a deeper dive into a person’s story and begin seeking out what their desire and needs are in recovery. Taking the time to go for three months can feel daunting, but it is actually one of the best decisions a person can make for their recovery. 

More is Better

The reason people are seeking longer programs varies, but perhaps they have tried shorter programs and have not found success. Relapse is always possible, but there is a higher probability with shorter stays. People need a few weeks at least to detox, then a few more weeks to get grounded. Thirty days is simply not long enough. Many people seek treatment after multiple episodes and learn the hard way about seeking intensive care for addiction. Traditional programs are not enough. The longer a person is engaged in a program, the better their chances of living a longer, healthier life in recovery. The brain and body require more time to heal, so it won’t happen overnight. 

Onion Peel

The layers of an onion are varied, which have different flavors and yield different things about the onion. The same is true for a person who has the issues addressed in recovery. People are starting addiction earlier and needing help for longer. The healing process takes more than 28 days or even 60 days to address. With underlying trauma and psychological issues, they need treatment and should focus on relapse prevention strategies to keep them on the path of healing. Longer periods of treatment are a necessity to live. Alcoholism and addiction are challenging. When people take responsibility for their actions, they can become educated and more aware of their surroundings. 

Going back through the layers of a person’s story can uncover trauma, neglect, grief, lost hope and dreams deferred. People often leave them in the past in their minds, not realizing all the baggage still comes with them on the journey of life. When they look at what is causing underlying issues with recovery, there is recognition of what is lost and how to address it so they can find hope again. In this way, 90 days is truly the golden ticket to finding hope and healing in recovery. This means addressing the issues, facing the past, and finally coming to terms with addiction recovery as a lifelong journey of discovery.
