Addiction Treatment In Westfield, MA
While there is no one form of addiction treatment that works for everyone, recovery is a continuous process. It starts with detox and then leads to inpatient or outpatient treatment.
Specialized treatment, like medication-assisted treatment or treatment for co-occurring disorders, may be woven into the rehab program. Following treatment, aftercare services are provided for lasting support in recovery.
Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs
Detox is the initial step in recovery from drugs and/or alcohol. Detox services can be ambulatory or outpatient, but they’re most often provided in a residential or clinical setting.
Detox programs usually last between three and four days and up to one or two weeks, depending on your health and substance use history. They include medical supervision and may use medications to alleviate potentially dangerous and painful withdrawal symptoms.
Inpatient Addiction Treatment
Residential or inpatient addiction treatment provides services 24-hours a day, seven days a week in a safe and structured environment. Residential treatment programs provide evidence-based group and individual substance use disorder counseling.

A good choice if you have co-occurring mental health disorders or require supervision and a highly structured schedule, residential treatment provides integrated care in a peaceful setting.
If you have support for sobriety at home, you may be a good candidate for outpatient treatment. Outpatient treatment is community-based, and may take place in the evening hours to accommodate busy schedules.
Outpatient programs are usually either intensive or less-intense, which determines how often you meet for treatment. Partial hospitalization programs are in-between inpatient treatment and outpatient treatment, providing a daily schedule of treatment and activities while you continue to live at home and commute.
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) combines FDA-approved medications with counseling and peer support groups. It has been used for a number of years to help with alcohol and opioid use disorders. MAT has been shown to reduce symptoms of opioid use, and can be a beneficial part of substance use treatment and recovery.
Aftercare And Alumni Services
Alumni and aftercare services are designed to support you in long-term recovery. Substance use disorders are chronic, long-term conditions and ongoing support is a part of recovery. Aftercare programs often include 12-step or non-12-step support groups, alumni networks, relapse prevention programs, and other recovery services.
Length Of Addiction Treatment
There is no set length for addiction treatment, and everyone experiences substance use disorders differently. Although 90 days is the optimal length of treatment, you may also find that 30-day, 60-day, or 120-day programs are sufficient for your situation.
Residential rehab programs can also be short-term, lasting three to four weeks, but these programs are usually combined with outpatient treatment.
How To Pay For Treatment
Nearly all treatment programs in Massachusetts accept private or self-pay and most forms of private insurance. MassHealth also provides payment for every phase of substance use treatment, from detox to aftercare services and support. Some programs also offer a sliding-fee scale based on your individual finances. Also, consider crowdfunding and support from family and friends.
