it depends on the person, the drug of choice, and the facility. But If the rehab is truly wanted, adn desired by the person, they will get out of it what they put into it.
Some rehabs are Stricter, some are more focused on therapeutic ways,But it is truly up to the individual to get all the help thy can, If they are ready for it, and go into it with an open mind, and are prepared to break down walls theyve built up, especially the ones that they may not be aware of. It takes a while to become an addict, and there is No 30 day cure. It will take a lieftime commitmen to health, growth, letting go, and healing... but 30 days is better than none.
Hope this helps. Rehab is hard, but not geting help will be much worse inthe long run.

a lot of times, I think, rehab acts as a place for the addict to have a safe place to get clean and receive the bare minimum information to get started on a sane and sober life. I don't think that it necessarily changes anything in the addicts life, except get him clean physically. Maybe it's like a safe place to go, away from the BS of their present life. If you go on paper, there is the added resentment of being forced to do something you don't want to.

It's a life long process and some folks go through many rehab programs before they even begin to get an idea of which way to go.

I believe that there is no cure, period, for addicts. It is a livelong struggle for all. Some addicts get it early and get it good and move on to really fulfilling lives. Others consinder themselves lucky to just not be drunk or drugged and may never have what "we" consider to be even partially successful lives, which is a greater success story than any self-made millioinaire.

But the sad truth is that most just don't make it. Ask any AA or NA or related program oldtimer. A lot just don't make it. You hear it time and agin.

I hope that last part didn't scare you off or upset you. I have no idea about your situation.

Sorry to be so long winded. I am usually that way in the morning when I haven't had two or three pots of coffee.

Anyway, short form answer - if it is a well thought out, principaled program, it is good. If it is a piss-poor money-grubbing corporate program and it helps save one person, it is good.
