My invisalign packs say 1 of 31. How long is the treatment time for that?

Invisalign Treatment time is based on the number of aligners
Typical Invisalign treatment requires wearing each aligner for two weeks. So in your case, with 31 aligners, you are looking at 62 weeks or about fifteen months. Bear in mind, however, that if any mid-course corrections, refinements, or other tweaking is needed it may take an additional few months. And then supervised retention for at least a year.
31 aligners x two weeks each = 62 weeks.
Didn't your orthodontist instruct you?
Can get that nearly halved if you use Acceledent in addition.
If he knows what he's doing.
