Treatment and Staff
For those seeking treatment for opioid addiction, DHC offers Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) using either Suboxone or methadone. Prior to beginning detox, an initial assessment is used to determine which medication would best benefit the client. The assessment is also used to develop a unique treatment plan that helps counselors focus their sessions on what each client needs the most.
Individual therapy is scheduled once a week, while group therapy is held three times a week for three hours using CBT methodology. Group sessions cover topics ranging from addiction education and the nature of chemical dependency to relapse prevention, aftercare planning and independent living skills. Family sessions can also be scheduled if desired by the client and their loved ones.
Holistic therapies are also integrated into the program including mindfulness training, meditation groups as well as nutrition counseling and planning. The 12 steps are not integrated into the program, but attendance of AA/NA meetings is encouraged.
In addition to an outpatient treatment program, DHC also offers a variety of other services including HIV counseling, medical examinations, nutritional counseling and referral services.
DHC’s commitment to the recovery community and network of resources makes them an excellent program for individuals in Rhode Island, Utah, Maine and Pennsylvania. The individualized outpatient program offered is ideal for those who are seeking less structured treatment with flexible programming. The focus on holistic therapies and the unique needs of each client prepares individuals to maintain sobriety outside of the program.
