Addiction Treatment In Barnstable, MA

Addiction treatment is a continuum of care, from initial detox to potential residential treatment. Outpatient treatment programs, 12-step programs and peer support, and aftercare and alumni programs all play a role in drug and alcohol recovery and treatment.

Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs

Detox programs provide medication and support for beginning your recovery from drug or alcohol dependency. Detox is designed to help you overcome physical symptoms of withdrawal.

Withdrawal symptoms can start within 6 hours of last using drugs or alcohol. They can range from mild to severe. Detox programs may last from a few days to two to three weeks. Medically supervised detox programs can be inpatient or residential, and are sometimes conducted in outpatient or community-based settings.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment

Inpatient or residential treatment may use a medical model that takes place in a hospital or residential campus that includes a therapeutic community (TC). Both peer support and evidence-based therapies are the backbone of residential care.

Residential rehab programs provide sober living and recovery support seven-days-a-week, 24-hours a day. Residential programs focus on specific needs, including gender-specific programs for men and women, programs that serve co-occurring mental health disorders, and specialized services for adolescents or older adults.

Outpatient Treatment

If you have a supportive home environment, you may choose an outpatient treatment program. Outpatient programs take place in the community and can be close to home. Some may be held in the evening so you can continue with other obligations as you attend rehab.

Outpatient programs may be intensive, taking place more than nine hours a week, and meeting more than three days a week. Less-intensive outpatient programs meet fewer than nine hours a week. Outpatient programs combine evidence-based therapy with education and support groups.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) uses FDA-approved medications to support recovery from opioid and alcohol use disorders. MAT allows you to recover from the physical impacts of opioid and alcohol use along with receiving evidence-based counseling and peer support.

Aftercare & Alumni Services

Substance use disorders are long-term, chronic illnesses. You could be in recovery for months, and even years, and then experience a relapse. Aftercare and alumni services provide a valuable step in the continuum of recovery and care. They offer ongoing reinforcement of healthy lifestyles, and provide support to prevent or help with relapse.

Length Of Addiction Treatment

Drug and alcohol treatment length should be tailored to your circumstances and needs. In general, residential treatment programs may be short-term, lasting up to 30 days and followed by outpatient treatment and aftercare/alumni support.

Long-term programs can last:

  • 60 days
  • 90 days
  • 120 days
  • six months to a year or longer

How To Pay For Treatment

Most substance use treatment programs in Massachusetts accept major private insurance programs. The majority of programs also offer options for self-pay or payment plans.

MassHealth provides reimbursement for nearly all types of substance use disorder treatment, including detox, residential rehab, and outpatient counseling. Other options for payment can include crowdfunding, family and friends, and a sliding-fee scale based on your income.
