    Alcohol & Drug Rehab Center Options Near Salem, Massachusetts

    Rehab centers can provide medical detoxification, inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment, medication-assisted treatment, and aftercare. 

    Rehab programs vary depending on:

    • the type of drug being used 
    • past substance abuse treatment
    • physical and mental health problems 
    • care specialties of the facility
    • your overall health

    At centers like Ark Behavioral Health, those with an addiction can physically, emotionally, and spiritually regain their sobriety.

    Medical Drug & Alcohol Detox

    Medical drug and alcohol detox programs decrease withdrawal pain by using medications, offering medical advice, and providing emotional support. 

    Detoxification programs may provide:

    • medications to manage pain 
    • IV drips to provide nutritional care
    • constant medical attention 

    Inpatient Drug Rehab

    Inpatient treatment places you in a controlled residential environment where you can receive 24-hour support from licensed experts. 

    Inpatient rehab programs may include:

    • counseling 
    • group therapy 
    • faith-based support
    • outdoor-based therapy 
    • mental health treatment for dual diagnosis
    • clinical and nutritional help 

    Most therapists suggest a stay of at least 90 days for maximum effectiveness. However, 30-60 day visits are also available with residential treatment. 

    Outpatient Addiction Treatment

    Outpatient treatment provides daily or weekly recovery services that allows you to go home and take care of your family and job. 

    Program types available in an outpatient setting include:

    PHP is appropriate for those who need medical care and behavioral adjustments. IOP and OP provide counseling and education with some medical support.

    Opioid & Alcohol Treatment Programs

    Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) provides medication, like methadone or disulfiram, and behavioral therapy for opioid and alcohol addictions. 

    MAT rehab programs may also:

    • provide education plans that focus on relapse prevention 
    • improve a person’s physical health with medication assistance 
    • encourage job training and placement for those who need it
    • integrate counseling methodologies to manage deep issues 

    MAT can be integrated alongside many other standard treatment options or may be used as a treatment for short-term or long-term care.

    Aftercare Services

    Aftercare programs support lifelong recovery by preventing relapses and teaching individuals how to live a life of sobriety. 

    Aftercare can provide a myriad of benefits, such as:

    • 12-step help in group-therapy settings
    • sober living environments
    • community placement in job programs 
    • ongoing support as a person recovers 

    Many aftercare programs include a case manager who can track your success, gauge your relapse triggers, and coordinate services after you leave a rehab facility. 

    Health Insurance Coverage For Addiction Treatment

    Massachusetts provides state-funded rehab options for those without insurance—look for the BSAS logo to find those who provide this care. 

    However, many insurance providers in the state may cover some or all of the cost of an addiction treatment program, such as: 

    • Beacon Health
    • Harvard Pilgrim Health Care
    • Health New England
    • Humana
    • MassHealth/Medicaid

    Contact your insurance provider, or a treatment facility directly, to learn more about coverage.
