Medical, cognitive, physiological, and other factors associated with aging cause detox and treatment to proceed more slowly for older people.
Research shows that for older people, personalized 90-day residential treatment is more successful than shorter treatment. A holistic facility that tends to the spiritual, medical, and emotional aspects is best.
Seniors commonly have pressing health issues and require a staff specialized in dealing with these issues.
Because mental health disorders frequently occur along with addiction in this group, the facility you choose must be prepared to handle all of these issues.
Older adults have different issues and needs than their younger counterparts so they are more comfortable sharing and accepting support and treatment from their peers.
