Seven to 30 days.: This varies primarily based on insurance and one's ability to pay for rehab. Some say, that once an individual starts the path to sobriety they will be in recovery or rehabilitation for the rest of their lives. It is important to consider getting a sponsor and attending regular aa meetings which are held all over modesto and the world several times a day.
