The staff is carefree, the support groups seem unnecessary in the program because they are boring and repetitive. We never learn anything new, the counselors are cold and not very understanding of the situation of the patients, they do not encourage patients to make changes. flag
Totally recommend Recovery Champions, great place to start a treatment and get sober. They also count with activities that make their patients want to come back and feel comfortable. The family component is a very useful tool that personally helped me a lot. The staff tries to get involved with the patients situation so they can help them directly. flag

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. For clients who require medication to support their ongoing counseling and behavioral therapy, their clinical professionals can oversee the use of pharmacological medications to help treat substance abuse. Depending on their long-term needs, clients can also get help sustaining their recovery through ongoing medication usage. Clients benefiting from Medication Assisted Treatment have ongoing access to psychiatrists, MDs and RNs throughout the program. Licensed medical staff oversee all medication used during the Medication Assisted Treatment program, ensuring clients receive proper dosages.

Buprenorphine Detox:

Buprenorphine (brand name Subutex, among others) is an opioid medication used to treat opioid addiction. Buprenorphine can prevent or significantly reduce withdrawal symptoms, making it easier to get and stay off opioids. Sometimes used alongside naloxone, dosage depends on the severity of each case. Many people stay on buprenorphine long-term, although some gradually reduce the dosage to come off it.

Level of Care:



As clients move from the IOP and back into everyday life, the Outpatient Program allows continuity and stability during the transition period. With the same peers, counselors, case managers, and staff to guide and support them, clients are better able to cope with the challenges of reentry. A typical OP does not exceed eight hours per week, with flexible schedules to accommodate work and family commitments.

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.


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. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient's individual requirements.

Individualized Treatment:

Recovering Champions understands that no two people develop addictive behaviors the same way. That’s why they tailor their treatment plans to fit the unique physiological, psychological, and spiritual makeup of each client. Their proven approach to opiate/opioid addiction treatment takes into account each client’s background and specific needs. Clients enjoy a personalized treatment plan and schedule throughout their outpatient treatment so they can recover at their own pace. The same counselors and treatment staff that guided clients through earlier phases of recovery are still part of the client’s outpatient treatment.


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).

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. Clients are set up for success through assistance with job placement and volunteer opportunities, supported recovery, and a plan for next steps. Even as recovery continues, Recovering Champions staff are available for both individual and family therapy consultation.

Holistic Treatment:

At Recovering Champions, they believe a successful treatment plan must address the underlying spiritual, emotional, and psychological causes of addiction. To that end, they take a holistic, integrated approach to the disease of addiction by providing a supportive, welcoming environment to heal through customized treatments.

Medically Assisted Detox:

Detoxification programs help clients rid themselves of drugs and alcohol while managing the symptoms of withdrawal, usually over a period of three to five days in a medically supervised facility. The long-term post-detox healing process known as recovery is their focus at Recovering Champions. That’s why they’ve formed partnerships with several of the best detox facilities in New England and can help their clients find the detox program that is right for them. The majority of Recovering Champions clients benefit from a detoxification process before beginning their recovery in their treatment program.

Intensive Outpatient:

The Intensive Outpatient Program provides the next level of outpatient care for clients recovering from drug and alcohol addiction, including 3 1/2 hours of daily clinical programming, an ideal step-down from the rigorous PHP. The transition between programs is seamless, as each client’s peers, counselors, case managers, and direct care staff remain the same when transitioning from PHP to IOP.

Sober Living Homes:

Sober Living Houses (SLHs), aka sober homes or halfway houses, are safe, substance-free, supportive living facilities for those recovering from substance abuse. Ideal for those who've just been through inpatient or outpatient treatment, SLHs are supervised environments with rules that support sobriety, such as curfews, shared chores, and therapeutic meetings. Residents are also often trained on life skills and coping skills to make it easier to transition into society. SLHs also provide a strong sense of community that can lead to the kind of deep and lasting connections with other sober individuals that supports a new, healthy lifestyle.

Treatment Focus:



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.

Opioid Addiction:

Opioid rehabs 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.

Mental Health and Substance Abuse:

A combined mental health and substance abuse rehab 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:

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.

Therapy Programs:


Family Therapy:

During individual and family counseling sessions, their licensed addiction specialists work closely with clients and their families to discuss addictive behaviors, manage recovery, and work within the 12-step program. By tackling underlying emotional issues within their personal lives, both clients and their family members can develop healthier, deeper, and more satisfying relationships. Clients whose addiction may have harmed their relationships with family and friends can benefit from therapy as they recover. As part of an ongoing recovery, Recovering Champions provides licensed specialists to discuss vital aspects of emotional and psychological health.

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.

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.

Equine Therapy:

Equine therapy, aka equine-assisted therapy (EAT), is a form of experiential therapy that involves interactions and activities with horses. It does not necessarily involve riding horses, but all activities related to horses, such as feeding, grooming, haltering and leading them. A mental health professional frequently oversees the activities (often in conjunction with a horse professional), and helps patients process their thoughts, feelings, and behavior patterns during and/or after the interaction.

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:

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.

Nutrition Therapy:

Nutrition therapy, aka medical nutrition therapy (MNT), is a way of treating physical, emotional, and medical conditions through diet. Specific dietary plans are designed by professional nutritionists or registered dietitians, and patients follow them in order to positively affect their physical and mental health.

Couples Therapy:

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.

Trauma Therapy:

Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.
