Addiction Treatment In Belmont

If you struggle with addiction, you have access to medication-assisted treatment and detox, inpatient and partial hospitalization programs (PHP), and outpatient counseling in Belmont or other areas of Middlesex County.

Substance use disorders are complex and involve your body, mind, and social functioning. Treatment plans should be tailored to your needs and should begin as early as possible for the best chance of recovery.

Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs In Belmont

When you stop using alcohol or drugs, you can experience physical withdrawal symptoms. Detox is the first step in substance use disorder treatment. It addresses the discomfort and potential risk of removing drugs and/or alcohol from the body.

Detox programs can last three or four days or longer, and take place in an inpatient/residential setting or through a community clinic. Detox should be supervised by a medical professional and can use medication to ease withdrawal symptoms.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment In Belmont

Inpatient treatment is also called residential rehab. This type of treatment provides a sober-living environment 24-hours a day, seven days a week. Residential treatment programs try to build a therapeutic community so you can learn from others and build support.

Inpatient treatment combines evidence-based therapies with behavioral modification programs, and are well-suited for co-occurring disorders. Residential rehab programs can also include yoga and music therapy, equine therapy, and wilderness experiences to enhance recovery.

Outpatient Treatment In Belmont

Outpatient treatment is offered in the community. Unlike residential rehab, you can continue to live at home and sometimes continue to work while attending outpatient treatment. Outpatient treatment can also be part of a treatment plan that offers a continuum of care.

Regular outpatient programs meet for fewer than nine hours a week. Programs meeting for more than nine hours a week are intensive outpatient programs (IOP). The most intensive outpatient programs are partial hospitalization programs (PHP) which meet every day for several hours.

Medication-Assisted Treatment In Belmont

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) has developed in recent years to use FDA-approved medications and counseling to treat tobacco, alcohol, and opioid use disorders.

MAT medications include buprenorphine, naltrexone, and methadone. The medications are used along with counseling, peer group support, and sober-living environments to support short- and long-term recovery.

Aftercare & Alumni Services In Belmont

Substance use disorders last a lifetime and recovery is a continuous process. After completing treatment, alumni services and aftercare support you in recovery.

Aftercare programs help you to maintain and develop coping skills. They can also help to prevent relapse or assist in case a relapse does occur.

  • 120 days
