The length of time an alcoholic should spend in rehab can vary depending on the severity of the addiction, the individual’s physical and mental health, and other factors. In general, however, it is recommended that individuals with alcohol addiction spend at least 30 days in a rehab program, although many programs last for 60 or 90 days. Some individuals may require longer treatment, particularly those with a long history of alcohol abuse or co-occurring mental health conditions. The exact length of stay in rehab should be determined by a medical professional or addiction specialist who can evaluate the individual’s needs and make a recommendation based on their unique situation.
