Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs
Detox helps you to overcome the symptoms of withdrawal that occur when you stop using alcohol and/or drugs. Withdrawal symptoms are uncomfortable and can come with health risks.
Detox can take place in a residential setting or as “ambulatory” detox in the community. Medical supervision helps to make detox safer and more effective.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment
Residential or inpatient treatment provides a secure, drug- and alcohol-free environment to begin recovery. Inpatient programs offer you the opportunity to focus completely on sobriety while you receive evidence-based treatment.
Inpatient programs also provide a therapeutic community that helps to support your recovery and ongoing healing from substance use. You can participate in sober living activities, including wilderness and adventure therapy, music, art therapy, and more.
Outpatient treatment programs often last between ten and 16 weeks. They are community-based and usually meet two to three times a week, for two or more hours. Outpatient treatment combines evidence-based therapy like CBT with sober living education and peer group support.
You may have heard of MAT (medication-assisted treatment) for opioid use disorders. It can also benefit people with alcohol and tobacco use disorders. MAT medications include buprenorphine, methadone, and naltrexone.
MAT combines the medications with therapy and peer group support. Both residential treatment and outpatient programs can offer MAT, and programs can last between six months and a year and sometimes longer.
Aftercare And Alumni Services
You may benefit from ongoing group or individual therapy after you complete a formal drug and alcohol rehab program. Others continue their recovery with peer group support.
Alumni and aftercare programs continue recovery and healing through a combination of therapy, sober living activities, and peer group support.
Length Of Addiction Treatment
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reports that detox-only programs that last a few days don’t contribute to long-term recovery. Drug and alcohol treatment should be individualized. Within this framework, you’ll find some common program lengths that include:
- 30 days
- 60 days
- 90 days
- 120 days
How To Pay For Treatment
Rhode Island offers Centers of Excellence for Opioid Use Disorders (COE) which can serve as points of entry for opioid treatment. Other public funding for treatment includes Medicaid. Medicare and Tricare (military insurance) may also pay for treatment.
Most Rhode Island rehabs accept major private health insurance plans. You may also find programs that offer services based on the ability to pay, or discounts and payment plans for private pay.
