AdCare Hospital

0 Reviews

AdCare Hospital is located in Worcester, Massachusetts. AdCare Hospital specializes in the treatment of Substance, Drug and Alcohol Abuse. Their services are designed to recognize and meet an individual’s personal needs, which is why they offer a range of inpatient treatment programs: Inpatient Detoxification and Inpatient Rehabilitation.

AdCare Hospital Focus:

Substance Abuse

Substance Abuse Treatment Centers focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.

Opiate Addiction

Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.

Alcoholism

The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

Rehabilitation Services are provided for individuals who have co-occurring medical or psychiatric conditions that require active treatment by a physician. These individuals are seen and treated daily by medical staff, in order to become more physically and emotionally stable. Those participating in rehabilitation are assigned a primary counselor and a case manager to assist in meeting their treatment goals.

Rehab Services:

Methadone Maintenance Treatment (MMT)

Methadone Maintenance Treatment or ORT (Opiate Replacement Therapy) is the use of methadone as a substitute for someone who is addicted to opioids (heroin, OxyContin, codeine, Dilaudid, Percocet and others), helping with the recovery process reducing the cravings for the opioids or used as part of the admittance process to a substance abuse treatment facility that requires complete abstinence.

Psychotropic Medication

Psychotropic medications (aka psychodynamic medication) are any medicines used specifically to affect and/or alter a patient’s mind, emotions, and behaviors. Such psychiatric medicines are often used to change chemical levels in the brain that impact a person’s mood and behavior. These medications include mood stabilizers, antidepressants, anti-ADHD drugs, and anti-anxiety medications.

What does AdCare Hospital offer?

Medically Assisted Detox

Detox is a crucial aspect of the inpatient program, as it addresses the body’s physical dependence on a substance. Going through detox allows individuals to rid their body of toxins and focus on the emotional and psychological elements of healing. During the detoxification program patients are medically managed 24-hours per day, and participate in a daily program designed to increase their understanding of their addiction and continuing care needs.

24 Hour Clinical Care

At certain points in the recovery process, it’s important to have support available 24/7. 24-hour clinical care offers a safe environment in which to recover from drug or alcohol addiction in peace, knowing medical detox and other treatment will happen with professionals on hand.

Outpatient (OP)

Outpatient programs are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the amount of hours the patient spends at the facility. Most of the time an outpatient program is designed for someone who has completed an inpatient stay and is looking to continue their growth in recovery. Outpatient is not meant to be the starting point, it is commonly referred to as aftercare.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. For some individuals, continued inpatient treatment is needed to address ongoing medical or psychiatric illnesses and/or issues that place them at immediate risk of relapse. Acute Residential Services are provided for individuals whose medical and psychiatric conditions are more stable. These individuals may be admitted directly to Residential Services or transferred from Rehabilitation Services. Individuals in Acute Residential are medically monitored and provided daily nursing care, as well as being assigned a primary counselor and a case manager to assist in meeting treatment goals.

Intervention Services

Referrals for intervention services for individuals having difficulty addressing alcohol and drug use on their own can be arranged through any AdCare location. Some of their Clinical and Community Service staff have special training in the ARISE® Model of Intervention to better assist you with challenging situations.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

The Case Management Department plays an integral role in treatment, following each individual’s progress from admission through discharge and assisting with aftercare planning. Their Case Managers work closely with managed care companies to ensure that each individual receives the services necessary for a solid recovery.

12-Step

12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A number of substance abuse programs (including some drug and alcohol rehab centers) use the 12 steps as a basis for treatment. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Middle steps including making direct amends to those who've been hurt by the addiction, and the final step is to assist others in addiction recovery in the same way. 12-Step offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA), Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Family Program

AdCare believes that the families and friends of their patients should have an opportunity to participate in their loved one’s treatment, to increase likelihood of their loved ones’ successful recovery, as well as to receive treatment and support for themselves. AdCare offers a range of structured family counseling and complimentary support services. Their Family Program is designed to educate loved ones about substance dependency, as well as provide support for family members in a therapeutic, group-mentoring setting. All family programs are facilitated by knowledgeable and experienced professionals, who also provide treatment to their patients.

Aftercare Support

AdCare’s Alumni Program offers a variety of ways for graduates to further personal recovery, find support, and connect with others seeking to live healthy and happy lives. Alumni benefits include access to: The Adcare Alliance, their newsletter featuring wellness tips, news, and events geared towards recovery; Alumni Special Events, which provide a range of recreational, community-focused social gatherings, such as: annual holiday celebrations, special speaker nights, and recovery initiatives; and Alumni Aftercare Groups, providing graduates a safe and healthy environment for recovery/sobriety support and sharing.

Therapies Offered:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient's own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.

Life Skills

Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. These include time management, career guidance, money management, and effective communication. Truly successful addiction recovery is based on the ability to not only live substance-free, but to thrive. Life skills teaches the practical necessities of functioning in society, which sets clients up for success in life, and therefore sobriety.
