How Is Drug Addiction Treated?
At Tampa Bay Recovery Center, we used evidence-based and trauma-informed treatment modalities to help our clients find the space needed to heal. Addiction is complex, and recovery doesn’t happen overnight.

How Long Does Drug Rehab Last?
Drug rehab in Tampa can last anywhere from a few weeks to several months. An initial detox program usually lasts from five to ten days. From there, a person may attend residential treatment.

How long a drug rehab program lasts depends on a few factors. These include how long the addiction has gone on and how much of the drug the person typically consumed.
