Farnum 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.

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.

Buprenorphine Detox and Treatment

The Farnum Center offers medically supervised outpatient services for opiate-addicted clients. Clinic participants are required to meet regularly with a medical doctor who specializes in addiction medicine and is specifically trained in the use of Suboxone. Participation in individual or group counseling is a required program component. They have groups in the morning and evenings, which the individual can participate in. They also have self-help meetings available and groups designated for suboxone clients to discuss the unique challenges of using opiate replacement therapy.

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 Farnum Center offer?

Medically Assisted Detox

The Farnum Center’s Medical Detoxification unit is open 24 hours a day. It is medically supervised by their Medical Director, nurses, counselors, licensed mental health clinicians, and master level alcohol and drug counselors. The Medical Detoxification unit will serve individuals 17 and older needing help to safely and medically stop using alcohol and other drugs. Once screened and accepted, a specific medical treatment plan will be developed according to the established protocols. Each protocol calls for a certain medication to help alleviate the symptoms of withdrawal. A very important piece of the detoxification is the frequency of monitoring withdrawal symptoms. The detoxification process consists of three essential components: evaluation, stabilization, and fostering patient readiness for entry into treatment.

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.

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) enables adult clients who do not require an inpatient level of care, and gives them the opportunity to receive intensive treatment services while fulfilling their daily responsibilities such as parenting, working, or pursuing educational goals. In the first phase of treatment, clients participate in programming for three hours a day, three days a week, over the course of one month. Continuing care requires weekly group and individual counseling for eight weeks. The program consists of group health realization education, group therapy, individual counseling, friend/family education, aftercare planning, and case management.

Outpatient (OP)

Outpatient Services are available to clients who are transitioning from a higher level of care, or those who need brief services for a specific purpose such as license restoration, court-ordered LADC evaluations, or the solution of personal issues. Outpatient Services consist of individual counseling and group therapy. All of their services are different from what you would typically find in other programs because they are looking for the innate health in each person to help them regain their own inner strength.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

The Farnum Center’s Inpatient Program is a 30-day, gender-specific treatment procedure with the capacity to serve 40 adults who have primary substance abuse issues, or mental health and substance use problems. This program is for clients who require the structure and intensive support of an inpatient setting. They have a very unique approach to treatment by using Health Realization (HR) in all of their programs and start with the premise that each client is healthy and has it within themselves to guide their own life with the help and support of their trained staff.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

Certain drug and alcohol rehab centers have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person's specific background and needs. For example, a rehab facility may adjust a treatment program to take into account the type of drug or addiction from which the person suffers, their age, medical condition(s), religious beliefs, or lifestyle.


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 and Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Family Program

Families are the most important people to an individual in treatment. They want families to feel like The Farnum Center is just as much their program as it is the clients. So what they have done is create programs on the weekends and invite family members to participate. They offer adult visits on Saturdays and Sundays from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm. The visiting day is determined by the unit your loved one is on. They also have children visits so the client can see their children with the support of staff. On visiting day we expect each family member to participate in family education prior to the visit.

Aftercare Support

Members of their alumni community stay strongly connected with Webster Place. Often, alumni return to share their experience, strength, and hope with their new residents. They stay connected through weekly alumni meetings and self-help meetings at Webster Place for those in treatment and in the community. Many reach out to each other for ongoing support and encouragement via phone, email, and social networking. The broader community also plays a major role in supporting our residents and alumni with self-help meetings, employment and friendship. They provide rides to meetings, volunteer, and make donations to help those in need.

Therapies Offered:

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.

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.
