    Gardner Alcohol & Drug Treatment Programs

    Alcohol and drug addiction treatment is most effective when customized or individualized to your specific needs and goals. 

    To this end, your treatment provider may evaluate you before recommending various levels of care such as:

    • medical detoxification
    • inpatient treatment
    • outpatient treatment
    • medication-assisted treatment
    • aftercare support

    Medical Drug & Alcohol Detox Programs

    Medical detoxification is a short-term process in which you allow your body to purge itself from drugs or alcohol. 

    This can be an uncomfortable process, which is why medical professionals stay on-hand to provide medical advice, encouragement, and medications (if needed) to ensure that you stay safe and as comfortable as possible as your body adjusts to this new normal.

    Residential/Inpatient Drug Rehab

    Inpatient treatment facilities are designed to be residential, meaning that you will live inside the center for a set period of time as your treatment continues. 

    Residential treatment is focused and structured. It’s likely a good fit for those with severe substance use disorders or dual diagnoses relating to other co-occurring mental health disorders.

    Outpatient Treatment

    Outpatient services may be recommended as the next step for treatment after you complete inpatient treatment, or it may be offered in place of inpatient treatment. 

    In either case, you will continue living at home while traveling to regularly scheduled treatment sessions, often featuring the same interventions offered in inpatient treatment.

    Outpatient treatment may also be offered as partial-hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs.

    Opioid & Alcohol Treatment Programs

    A number of medications have been approved by the FDA for the treatment of opioid addiction and alcohol addiction. 

    These medications may be used alone or in combination, but are most effective when paired with behavioral therapies and counseling in a treatment approach known as medication-assisted treatment (MAT).

    Aftercare Services

    Addiction, unfortunately, is frequently a recurring condition.

    For this reason, your treatment provider may host 12-step programs or other peer support groups, sober living housing, counseling services, or helplines in order to support you in recovery after your time in rehabilitation ends.
