Good Samaritan Medical Center, a member of the Steward Healthcare network, has offered inpatient treatment, medically supervised detox and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) since 1968. Its NORCAP Lodge facility currently houses both programs and is situated on quiet, wooded grounds in Foxboro, Massachusetts, 30 miles south of Boston.
The Norcap Lodge is an approved treatment center of the Massachusetts Bureau on Substance Abuse.
Treatment and Staff
Upon admission to the IOP, clients can expect to attend treatment for four to five weeks, depending on their ability to attend all required sessions consecutively. Treatment includes group therapy three evenings each week. Each client has a case-manager who tracks their progress through treatment and helps to arrange individual therapy and other medical and psychological services as-needed. Groups are primarily psycho-educational, helping clients learn the likely causes and effects of their addiction. Additionally, groups use evidence-based processing techniques such as Motivational Interviewing (MI).
The 12-step framework is used heavily throughout treatment at Norcap Lodge. In addition to exploring the steps in groups and individual counseling sessions, IOP clients are required to attend two outside AA/NA meetings each week.
The treatment team at Norcap Lodge includes LADCs, CADACs, LPNs and Master’s-level therapists including LCSWs. Since Norcap Lodge is a department of Good Samaritan Medical Center, clients with co-occurring disorders can access Good Samaritan’s behavioral health treatment team of psychiatrists and nurse practitioners for dual diagnosis support.
A unique feature of Norcap Lodge is its emphasis on family involvement in the recovery process. Clients are required to have a family member attend the initial assessment in order to be admitted to the program. Throughout treatment, families are required to attend group therapy once a week.
For aftercare, clients work with their case-manager to determine an appropriate one-on-one counseling schedule for their location, budget and continuing treatment needs. Norcap Lodge’s alumni can also attend a free weekly relapse prevention group.
Good Samaritan Medical Center’s Norcap Lodge provides a relatively short-term IOP that incorporates family involvement into treatment. Support for clients with dual diagnosis is available as well. Treatment focuses heavily on the 12-step framework and case-management services, ensuring that clients develop self-regulation techniques and have access to services and support following their time at Norcap Lodge.
