Behavioral Health Network is a community-based nonprofit that offers detox, inpatient, outpatient and sober living services throughout western Massachusetts. A collection of several mental health and substance abuse clinics dating back to the 1930s merged and became known as Behavioral Health Network. With a mission to keep treatment community-based, the organization helps clients of all ages with the most complex of addiction issues.
Accommodations and Food
Behavioral Health Network’s residential treatment facilities are all located in converted homes. This lends an air of comfort to the facilities, which are old, but well-maintained. Clients stay in shared rooms, men and women are housed in different halls or on separate floors, and bathrooms are shared with clients of the same gender. Meals are prepared by staff on site at each facility. In addition to breakfast, lunch and dinner, snacks are provided. Some dietary restrictions can be accommodated. Transportation is also provided by Behavioral Health Network for clients to attend appointments and off-site meetings daily.
Treatment and Staff
Behavioral Health Network’s addiction services cater to adults within the community. Beginning with a thorough assessment, counselors tailor a treatment plan to meet each client’s needs. A plan may include detox, post-detox residential, long-term residential, day treatment or outpatient services.

Carlson Recovery Center offers medically-monitored detox services for withdrawal from drugs and alcohol. The treatment model emphasizes developing a post-discharge plan.
