Many people in Rhode Island struggle with addiction, and Warwick is no exception. Males between 35 and 54 years old seem to be especially susceptible to substance abuse in the Warwick area, according to current data on emergency room visits for drug related issues. 

Luckily, no matter your demographic, there are treatment options available for those with substance use disorder in Warwick, Providence, Cranston, and across New England.

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Center Options Near Warwick, Rhode Island

It’s important to find a rehab facility that offers a personalized program. There are many reasons why addiction can take hold in a person’s life, and an individualized treatment program can address underlying physical, emotional, and mental health issues. 

Your treatment team will work with you to help you decide which level of care makes the most sense as a starting point for you. Many people who struggle with addiction start with a medically supervised detox before starting an inpatient or outpatient program. 

After substance abuse treatment is complete, it’s important to move forward with an aftercare plan that continues to support your recovery. 

Medical Detox Programs

Going through the detoxification process can feel scary and uncomfortable, and it’s important to work closely with a medical team to ensure that your body is detoxing safely.

Our treatment team will work with you to ensure that you’re safe and as comfortable as possible during withdrawal. Detox programs may provide medical advice, healthcare for serious health complications, and other supportive measures. 

Inpatient Drug Rehab

An inpatient treatment program allows you to begin recovery free from the pressures and responsibilities of daily life. 

These rehab programs include a combination of treatment approaches, including:

  • group therapy
  • peer support groups
  • behavioral therapy
  • holistic care activities
  • mental health services for dual diagnosis 

Outpatient Addiction Treatment

If inpatient treatment isn’t an option, you’ll be glad to know that outpatient treatment can be just as effective. During outpatient treatment, you’ll receive more intensive therapy than if you were seeing a counselor, but you’ll also have plenty of time to attend other responsibilities. 

You may also hear outpatient treatment referred to as intensive outpatient treatment or a partial hospitalization program

Opioid & Alcohol Treatment Programs

Opioid and alcohol dependency can make it difficult to stop use without a specialized program. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is designed to treat opioid or alcohol addiction.

MAT programs use FDA-approved medications like methadone, buprenorphine, or disulfiram. These medications are combined with group therapy, support groups, and other treatment services.

Aftercare Services

When treatment ends, your journey to sobriety is just getting started. Aftercare services, such as counseling or 12-step meetings, are an important part of keeping your focus on your wellness. Your treatment team will work with you to develop an aftercare plan. 

Health Insurance Coverage For Addiction Treatment

If you have health insurance, it’s likely that part or all of your treatment for substance use disorder will be covered. However, all Medicare, Medicaid, and private health insurance plans are different. Contact your insurance company or treatment center to learn more.

If you don’t have insurance, it’s still possible (and necessary) to get treatment. Rhode Island supports treatment and recovery programs, and they may be able to help you get treatment if you do not have health insurance.
