Saugus, Massachusetts Addiction Treatment Services

According to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Massachusetts Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, as of May 2021, opioid overdose deaths went down in Essex County from 2019 to 2020.

This may be in part due to the number of rehab facilities in and around Saugus. There are almost 75 different drug rehab centers in this area. 

With Boston only 20 minutes away, you’ll find even more if you’re willing to travel a bit, including Bedrock Recovery Center in Canton and Northeast Addictions Treatment Center in Quincy. 

Local recovery centers provide a variety of treatment services for those with any kind of substance use disorder.

Medical Drug & Alcohol Detox

Medical detox or detoxification is one of the first programs you’re likely to go through when starting addiction treatment. It’s a relatively short-term process where healthcare professionals watch over you while you withdraw from drugs and /or alcohol.

When you withdraw, withdrawal symptoms can show up and be unpleasant if not life-threatening. The doctors in the detox program offer varying methods of support to relieve some of the more uncomfortable symptoms.

Residential/Inpatient Drug Rehab

Inpatient drug and alcohol rehab includes services like behavioral therapy, group therapy, and other mental health services. You’ll learn more about addiction and coping skills to help with cravings.

During inpatient treatment, you stay at the facility for the length of your rehab program. A stay can range from a couple of weeks to a few months.

Outpatient Treatment

Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) and partial hospital programs (PHPs) are two common outpatient rehab programs. They offer similar services as inpatient treatment.

The biggest difference between inpatient treatment and outpatient treatment is that you commute to the rehab center for daily or weekly sessions as opposed to living there on site.

Opioid & Alcohol Treatment Programs

Medicated-assisted treatment (MAT) can be a big part of recovery programs for opioid drug addiction and alcohol addiction. 

In this type of treatment, medical professionals prescribe medication like buprenorphine and naltrexone to help ease cravings or stop the euphoric feeling that comes when taking opioids or alcohol.

Just because you graduate from treatment doesn’t mean the support you receive at the facility needs to end. 

Many recovery centers have aftercare support programs that offer sober-living housing, 12-step support groups, and counseling. This type of support can make the chances of long-term recovery more likely.
