What to expect after detox?

I have posted here a couple of times, about my husbands 20 year use of oxy.  At this point he has agreed to go to detox on Thursday.  After the detox, what can I expect he will be like and will he need further treatment.

I would guess that he will still need some kind of medical support as well as counseling

What is the usual treatment after detox?

Thanks so much..

How long is the detox schedule?  That's going to help pinpoint what issues he may be dealing with.  A person coming out of a fast detox (a week or two) is going to have significantly different issues than a person coming out of a longer term rehab environment (90 days to 6 months).  Also, what's included as far as treatment from the facility?
