Willis W Hudson Center 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.

Rehab Services:

Medically Assisted Detox

Upon admission to Hudson Health Services, all patients meet with our physician and nursing staff to undergo a comprehensive medical evaluation to determine if withdrawal management services are necessary. Withdrawal Management, also known as detoxification, is the process of using medications to stabilize patients and address the physical withdrawal syndrome that is not only uncomfortable, but also potentially dangerous in some cases. Withdrawal Management is a necessary first step for many patients. Because we individualize the process to meet each person’s needs, patients will be closely monitored by medical staff during the period of withdrawal management.

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.


Naltrexone is often used along with psychiatric counseling and social support to treat individuals undergoing drug or alcohol rehabilitation treatment.

What does Willis W Hudson Center offer?

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

Hudson Health Services offers Residential Treatment at their campus in Salisbury, Maryland. Known as ASAM Level 3.7, or Medically Monitored Intensive Inpatient Services, this level of care is appropriate for patients with co-occurring medical, emotional, or behavioral disorders that are severe enough to require 24/7 monitoring, but not severe enough to warrant a hospital admission. Withdrawal Management services are often coupled with this level of care.

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.

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.


They believe that participation in a recovery support group is one of the determining factors in how succesful a person is in their recovery journey. They also believe that there is no one size fits all program to meet the individual needs of their patients. Therefore, Hudson Health Services provides a variety of recovery support groups on their treatment campus, including Narcotics Anonymous, Alcoholics Anonymous, SMART Recovery, and Celebrate Recovery.

Family Program

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.

Aftercare Support

Hudson Health Services wants to provide a way for their alumni to stay connected after discharge. The decision to enter treatment is important and a life changing experience. The Alumni Association can help continue the fellowship and bridge the gap for newly discharged patients who are returning home and looking forward to a productive and fulfilling life in recovery. The Alumni Association meets periodically to discuss issues that arise in their community, as well as to socialize and provide peer mentoring for clients still in treatment. This association is an active entity within the recovery community to provide volunteer projects and essential outreach efforts.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Willis W Hudson Center Highlights:

Partial Hospitalization (PHP), or ASAM Level 2.5, is an effective treatment option for individuals whose co-occurring medical or psychiatric disorders are of a mild to moderate severity but have the potential to distract from treatment at a lower intensity and interfere with recovery efforts. Hudson Health Services includes the overnight stay with our PHP, allowing us to stabilize a patient’s acute psychosocial symptoms associated with their drug or alcohol use while ensuring them a safe, structured environment each evening.
Hudson Health Services believes in the benefits of Peer Support Specialists – individuals in recovery from Substance-Use Disorders or Mental Illness. They recognize that utilizing a person’s lived experience with substance use disorders, as well as recovery, is one of the best tools we have to help our patients open up, communicate, and relate more deeply while in treatment. Our Peer Recovery Specialists receive extensive training and are certified or working towards certification by the Maryland Addiction and Behavioral Health Professional Certification Board. Peer Recovery Specialists relate with patients in many ways that clinical staff cannot and use their own experiences to coach and guide them in these early days into their recovery.
One of the most unique alternative therapies that Hudson Health Services has implemented is the Drumming Off Drugs Program from Root Drumming Systems. A therapeutic group activity lead by certified staff, drumming has been clinically proven to reduce anxiety and depression, boost self-esteem, improve ability to follow instruction and build group cohesiveness. Coupled with rhythmic exercises, group leaders use recovery analogies to relate what is learned during drumming sessions to everyday life.
Yoga is well known for its ability to reduce stress and promote relaxation. It also helps to alleviate anxiety and depression, as well as reduce the effects of trauma. Higher Power Yoga is a unique style of yoga developed specifically for Hudson Health Services by Certified Holy Yoga Instructor, Heidi McNeeley. Holy Yoga is a form of yoga that worships God. However, because of the diversity they see on their campus, they wanted to be able to offer something that not only provides a good physical workout but also helps to establish a solid spiritual connection for everyone who participates. Heidi uses a blend of traditional positive affirmations and spiritual affirmations to increase a person’s connectedness to themselves, the group conscious, their environment, and their Higher Power.
