Clinical Services of Rhode Island is located in Greenville, Rhode Island. At Clinical Services of Rhode Island, they treat addiction as a 3 fold disease; medical/physical, psychological/emotional, and spiritual.

Clinical Services of Rhode Island 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.


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

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person’s mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Rehab Services:

Buprenorphine Detox and Treatment

Similar to methadone, buprenorphine is a drug meant to help with long-term treatment for opioid addiction. Those recovering from heroin addiction or other opiate addiction may be prescribed buprenorphine (Suboxone and Subutex) to help wean the body off of opioids safely, over time. Buprenorphine helps lessen the discomfort and danger of detox and withdrawal.

Vivitrol used for Addiction Recovery

Vivitrol has proven to be extremely effective in the treatment of opiate and alcohol abuse, especially when complimented with an effective rehab program. Vivitrol is a non-narcotic, non-addictive medication approved by the FDA that is used to suppress a person's cravings for a substance.

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 Clinical Services of Rhode Island offer?

Medically Assisted Detox

After a detox evaluation, if you or your loved one requires detoxification from alcohol or other substances, CSRI ensures a safe, medically-monitored detox period. These services are available to those clients following medical clearance after a thorough medical, psychosocial, and behavioral assessment and determination by a physician that the client is medically and behaviorally stable.

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

An IOP treatment program is appropriate for the client who is medically and psychologically stable, does not experience acute medical issues, and does not require 24/7 supervision. Depending on individual clinical needs clients may participate in this program as stand-alone treatment programs or after the completion of a residential treatment program as a way to assist with reintegration into the community. The IOP client typically resides at home, with family members, or at a Sober Living facility. Their IOP client will be scheduled for therapy according to his or her clinical need and individualized treatment plan, clients are typically scheduled to attend three consecutive hours of onsite treatment four days per week.

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.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

Understanding the root of your addiction is an important part of recovery. At Clinical Services of Rhode Island (CSRI) locations, they customize your addiction treatment plan according to your specific addiction needs. By collaborating with you and your primary therapist, they can individualize therapy and help you set treatment goals. By using individualized treatment plans and research-based therapy, CSRI doesn’t just focus on the substance abuse, they celebrate your strengths and potential to prepare you for a sober, self-directed life following graduation.


12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). At CSRI they believe that 12 Step programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous offer not only sober socialization and support but provide a simple guide to recovery.

Family Program

CSRI hosts a Family and Friends Education and Support Group open to the public and free of charge. Held on a weekly basis at each CSRI location, the group offers support for loved ones of those struggling with addiction. These forums discuss the options available to help a loved one who may be having problems with alcohol or other drugs. Meetings also benefit those close to someone in treatment, positioning them to be a solid part of their loved one’s support team in recovery.

Aftercare Support

Following completion of the CSRI outpatient treatment program, they want clients to be equipped with effective aftercare skills for different aftercare scenarios that may occur in their newly sober lifestyle. As a part of the CSRI program, they developed a series of talks relating to recovery talks that deal with frequently encountered common topics relevant to addiction and life after treatment. CSRI partners with every client’s family, loved ones, and available community resources during treatment to help lay the groundwork for their aftercare.

Therapies Offered:

Holistic Therapy

Rather than focusing solely on addiction, holistic therapy facilities treat patients in terms of their whole being. Holistic therapy is about more than just addiction and sobriety – it addresses the person’s life in its entirety, including career, physical, familial, and spiritual aspects.

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.

Couples Treatment

Whether a marriage or other committed relationship, an intimate partnership is one of the most important aspects of a person’s life. Drug and alcohol addiction affects both members of a couple in deep and meaningful ways, as does rehab and recovery. Couples therapy and other couples-focused treatment programs are significant parts of exploring triggers of addiction, as well as learning how to build healthy patterns to support ongoing sobriety.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a clinical approach to helping people with substance abuse issues and other conditions shift behavior in positive ways. It is more goal-oriented than traditional psychotherapy, as MI counselors directly attempt to get clients to consider making behavioral change (rather than wait for them to come to conclusions themselves). Its primary purpose is to resolve ambivalence and help clients become able to make healthy choices freely.
