Addiction affects the addict and the surrounding community. It is not unusual for friends and family members to look into treatment options for someone they know who is struggling with drugs or alcohol. Our counselors are available to help you find the information you need to help yourself or someone you know. Our knowledgeable addiction specialists can support you in researching Massachusetts rehabs, getting help with confronting a loved one about addiction, and everything in between.
Types of Treatment Available
There are several types of treatment available at Massachusetts rehabs today. Intake counselors work with clients to help decide which program structure may provide the best environment and curriculum.
People who are new to recovery and those who have very severe addictions and are especially prone to relapse are most often referred to residential treatment. Also known as inpatient rehab, residential treatment takes place at the treatment center around the clock. Clients eat, sleep, receive services, and have their meals onsite. The secure, controlled environment offers stability to people who may be triggered to relapse if they were in their home environments. Outpatient programs are mostly offered to clients upon graduating from residential treatment. Because outpatient clients are permitted to return home each day after receiving services, treatment centers generally require outpatient program participants to have a healthy, supportive home environment and to be able to commit to returning to the center each day as scheduled.
Clients who have a mental health condition that underlies their addiction require a dual diagnosis program. Common examples of conditions that can challenge a client’s sobriety include:
- Eating disorder
- Bipolar disorder
- Borderline personality disorder
- Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Anxiety disorder
Some dual-diagnosis clients enter treatment which a documented diagnosis while others learn about the underlying condition after receiving the attention and treatment they need in rehab. Our counselors are available to discuss your concerns about whether you or your loved one may need additional treatment and diagnosis for an underlying mental health condition.
Supporting to Support Family Members
Oftentimes, family members need support to better position themselves to help their loved one who is struggling with addiction. The decision to get clean and sober is ultimately the addict’s choice to make. However, those who are closest to the addict may find support through counseling and community groups. Clients who enroll in a treatment program may also participate in the family workshops and family counseling sessions many treatment centers offer. If you are looking for opportunities to heal your family, seek out rehab centers that offer services that bring program participants together with their family members in a therapeutic setting.
Most treatment programs introduce clients to recovery group settings. Recovery groups play a vital role in allowing people who are in recovery to continue to socialize and receive support from others who can relate to their experiences with substance abuse. Program participants are encouraged to continue to attend one or more recovery groups after they graduate from their initial treatment curriculum. There are standard recovery groups that welcome everyone based on the substance to which they are addicted. Some groups are specifically designed for people who have the same personal interests based on religion, culture, hobbies, gender, or profession. Family members may also participate in recovery groups that are designed to give those who are related to people who are in recovery a supportive community.
Treatment for Every Budget
Income level should never deter anyone from seeking treatment for alcohol or drug abuse. Massachusetts treatment centers are available to people of all income levels. Government agencies and nonprofit organizations operate centers for those who have low income or no income. Private treatment centers accept a variety of payment options, including health insurance and self-pay. Many rehab centers offer their own payment plans. If financing treatment is a concern, speak with a treatment specialist to learn about rehab center options that will meet your budget.
