Addiction Treatment In Methuen, MA
In Methuen, limited drug and alcohol rehab options are available. In Lawrence or Lowell, you’ll find a variety of treatment options that include medically supervised detox programs and peer support groups. Specialized treatment, including care for co-occurring mental health disorders, can be found nearby in Essex County or in other regions of Massachusetts.
Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs
Depending on your history of substance use and health, you may need to complete detox before entering a residential or outpatient treatment program. Detox helps you to overcome the physical symptoms of withdrawal. These programs may use medications to help reduce withdrawal symptoms and can include medical supervision.
Inpatient Addiction Treatment
Residential or inpatient rehab programs provide 24-hour, 7-days-a-week care for addiction. Inpatient programs can address co-occurring mental health disorders. They can also serve gender-specific or age-specific groups, including adolescents and older individuals.

Inpatient/residential treatment programs provide evidence-based therapies, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical-behavioral therapy (DBT). They can also build a therapeutic community, which provides an atmosphere of healing and support.
Instead of providing treatment in a 24-hour a day substance-free facility like inpatient treatment, outpatient programs take place in the community. They enable you to live at home and continue with other responsibilities while attending treatment.
Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) and partial hospitalization programs (PHP) are more intense programs that meet frequently, and in some cases daily. Less-intensive or regular outpatient programs (OP) meet fewer than nine hours and three days a week.
In use for several decades to treat opioid and alcohol use disorders, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) doesn’t “replace one drug with another.” MAT is an evidence-based form of treatment that includes medications which assist in reducing cravings and healing the mind and body while you also receive counseling and peer support.
MAT medications for opioid use disorders include naltrexone, buprenorphine, and methadone.
Aftercare And Alumni Services
Sometimes called relapse prevention programs, aftercare and alumni services support lifelong recovery and sobriety. Some services include peer group support, including 12-step groups. Ongoing support is crucial for recovery because relapse is always a concern.
Length Of Addiction Treatment
The length of drug and alcohol treatment should be determined by your individual needs, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).
Some examples of rehab program lengths include:
- Up to 30 days or less
- 60- or 90-day programs
- 120-day programs
- Six months
- One year or more
How To Pay For Treatment
In Massachusetts, nearly all rehab programs accept private insurance and private pay. MassHealth provides payment for many different types of substance use disorder treatment and behavioral healthcare. Other programs set a sliding-fee scale based on your ability to pay.
