    Westerly, Rhode Island Alcohol And Drug Rehab Centers

    Residents in the town of Westerly can access a number of different regional treatment programs that collectively offer a wide-range of services for substance use disorders.

    Substance Abuse Treatment In Westerly, Rhode Island 

    Westerly is home to a full service outpatient recovery center offering comprehensive substance abuse treatment services. 

    In addition, residents can access several rehab programs in the surrounding communities, as well as the greater New England region.

    To locate information on available treatment centers, you can:

    • consult the Department of Behavioral Healthcare, Developmental Disabilities, and Hospitals (BHDDH), a division of the Rhode Island Department of Health which oversees and licenses all Rhode Island addiction treatment programs
    • use the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Behavioral Health treatment locator
    • contact your primary healthcare provider and request a referral

    Westerly Alcohol & Drug Treatment Programs

    Substance use disorder is a complex condition and there is no single, cookie-cutter approach that works for everyone.

    Instead, you should work with treatment specialists willing to custom-tailor your treatment to best meet your individual needs and goals. 

    Common treatment services that may be recommended to you include:

    Medical Drug & Alcohol Detox

    A medical detox program is a short-term solution that places you in a safe, secure, and medically-supervised environment as your body processes away all remaining drugs and alcohol in your system. 

    Detoxification can be a difficult and challenging process, triggering a variety of uncomfortable or even hazardous withdrawal symptoms. However, it is a necessary process that helps prepare your body and mind for the next stage of your rehabilitation journey.

    Residential/Inpatient Drug Rehab

    When you enroll in inpatient treatment, you’re committing to an extended stay inside an inpatient rehab facility.

    At the rehab center, you’ll receive close attention from clinicians while undergoing intensive treatment sessions designed to give you the tools and motivation to continue to put drug abuse and addiction behind you.

    Group therapy in an inpatient treatment center can also help you build bonds with others going through the same process, while dual diagnosis treatment addresses any co-occurring mental health disorders contributing to your substance use.

    Outpatient Treatment

    Outpatient programs can vary greatly in intensity, from intensive outpatient or partial hospitalization to non-intensive outpatient therapy. 

    In each case, you’ll travel from home to a treatment facility, participating in sessions and then commuting back at the end of the day. 

    This flexibility is ideal for those with work or family responsibilities, though outpatient programs may not be extensive or structured enough for some with severe alcohol or drug addiction.

    Opioid & Alcohol Treatment Programs

    Opioid and alcohol addiction can be intense and difficult to treat effectively. However, a variety of medications have been developed and approved to treat one or both disorders, including methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone. 

    These medications are likely combined with proven behavioral therapies in a treatment approach known as medication-assisted treatment (MAT). MAT is widely offered in both inpatient and outpatient settings.


    Recovery is a lifelong process. Because of this, many recovery programs offer long-term supportive programs known collectively as aftercare

    Aftercare includes services like sober-living housing, employment assistance, counseling services, family services, and other vital resources for those who have recently (or not so recently) completed their time in a recovery center.

    Using Health Insurance For Addiction Treatment In Westerly, Rhode Island

    Whether you have private/employer provided health insurance or a government insurance policy (including Medicare and Medicaid), you can use your insurance to pay for services provided at licensed rehabilitation centers. 

    Call the number on the back of your insurance card for more details, or contact drug rehab centers directly with your insurance plan info accessible. 

    Payment assistance and low- or no-cost treatment is also available to those without insurance or with financial needs. Consult BHDDH to learn if you qualify.
