Eastway - Webster Street Academy and Family Center Focus:

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.

Mental Health and Substance Abuse

A combined mental health and substance abuse treatment center has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track.

Rehab Services:

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 Eastway - Webster Street Academy and Family Center offer?

Outpatient (OP)

Outpatient Services is based on the concept that often mental health supports are needed by children even if they are maintaining adequate school performance. In addition, support services may be need by those children who are to young to be enrolled in school. Outpatient Services allows families the ability to access mental health assistance in a community based program. Their trained staff utilized individual, group and play therapy to help children identify problems in their lives.

Treatment Types:

Holistic Treatment

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

Individualized Treatment

Individualized therapeutic supports such as individual and group therapy combine with coping and social skills classes to ensure that each child is focused on addressing and resolving those issues that have impeded their ability to live successful lives. Prior to student’s enrollment at Webster Street Academy, a licensed mental health clinician meets with the student and significant other(s) to gather information related to a variety of life areas and the youth’s history of coping with stressors in these areas. The clinician will assess mental health needs, make treatment recommendations and outline a plan that addresses these identified needs.

Aftercare Support

Completing a drug or alcohol rehab program shouldn't spell the end of substance abuse treatment. Aftercare involves making a sustainable plan for recovery, including ongoing support. This can include sober living arrangements like halfway houses, career counseling, and setting a patient up with community programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA).

Therapies Offered:

Family Therapy

Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.

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. Through individual therapy sessions, individuals participate in a self-discovery process. This process helps them realize that the challenges they face in their lives are not because better solutions do not exist but because they have not refined their ability to use available resources to reach better solutions.

Trauma Therapy

Trauma-Informed Care is a Best Practice treatment philosophy that incorporates an appreciation for the high prevalence of traumatic experiences in children who receive mental health services. The course in treatment requires a thorough understanding of the profound neurological, biological, psychological, and social effects of trauma on a child and all members of the treatment team must work closely together and be consistent in their interactions with the children.

Group Therapy

Group Therapy allows individuals to merge their interpretation of reality with other people’s interpretations in such a way that they are encouraged to develop a new understanding of themselves as well as the world around them. The foundation of Group Therapy is sharing in the experience of others. During Group, therapists strive not only to help students identify their common bonds, but also to have each student appreciate the diversity among their peers.

Experiential Therapy

Experiential therapy is a form of therapy in which clients are encouraged to surface and work through subconscious issues by engaging in real-time experiences. Experiential therapy departs from traditional talk therapy by involving the body, and having clients engage in activities, movements, and physical and emotional expression. This can involve role-play or using props (which can include other people). Experiential therapy can help people process trauma, memories, and emotion quickly, deeply, and in a lasting fashion, leading to substantial and impactful healing.

Life Skills

The Social Skills Training focuses on understanding one’s self by focusing on concepts such as: developing self-awareness (eg feelings, emotions), building self-confidence (eg intimacy, autonomy, success) and ensuring an adequate quality of life (eg balance between work, play and personal maintenance responsibilities). It also focuses on learning to get along with peers and adults by addressing issues such as: becoming socially responsible, building and maintaining friendships, interacting respectfully with authority figures and resolving conflicts.

Creative Arts Therapy

Creativity is inherently healing, and can help those in recovery express thoughts or feelings they might not otherwise be able to. Creative arts therapy can include music, poetry/writing, painting, sculpting, dance, theater, sandplay, and more. Unlike traditional art, the final product matters far less than the experience of creation and expression itself.
