Specialized Addiction Services

SERVICE

This is an outpatient substance abuse treatment service serving Middlesex County. Consisting of a number of specialized programs, we offer individual, group and family counseling for individuals and their families with substance abuse disorders. Special needs such as co-occurring disorders, HIV/AIDS, developmental and physical disability, are treated within an individualized treatment approach with case management support where needed. Additionally, there is a women’s program designed especially to address their unique needs in the recovery process. Working closely with an Addiction Psychiatrist, patients in need will be evaluated and followed up for medication monitoring where indicated. Each individual is evaluated at intake and assigned to the appropriate level of care including individual, group, IOP and aftercare. Those in need of a higher level of care are assisted with referrals to the proper treatment facility in the community. Patients from Middlesex and/or have Medicaid can be assisted with transportation.
