    Conditions and Issues Treated

    A detailed list of the primary cases commonly treated here.

    Opiod Addiction, Substance Abuse

    Substance Abuse + Addiction

    Substance abuse refers to the intensive and inappropriate use of psychoactive substances. Psychoactive substances are those that affect brain function. These include illegal drugs, alcohol, and even the excessive use of prescription drugs. The overuse of psychoactive substances leads to severe physical or psychological dependence. It also affects the social life and relationships of the affected individual. Substance abuse is treatable.

    The duration of treatment at Berkshire CSS in Pittsfield can require weeks or even months depending on the severity of the condition as there is a risk of relapse. Treatment options include medications, counseling sessions, various types of behavioral therapy, and group therapy in different combinations.

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction

    Addiction to prescription opioid painkillers like oxycodone and hydrocodone, and illicit opioids such as heroin, leads to potentially life-threatening withdrawal symptoms when discontinued. Opioid addiction treatment typically involves an inpatient stay at facilities like Berkshire CSS to make sure they get through withdrawal safely. Treatment also includes comprehensive mental health counseling.

    Levels of Care Offered

    This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Aftercare Support, Drug Rehab, Residential, Short Term (<30 Days), with additional therapies available as listed below.

    Aftercare Support

    Treatment is just a first step in sustaining sobriety. After rehabilitation, counseling for aftercare helps the person adapt to a life without drugs. A sober living facility in Pittsfield, job therapy, or educational assistance may be included in this service, managed by Berkshire CSS. This is when a preventive strategy for relapse starts to take shape.

    Inpatient Care

    Inpatient programs are intensive regimes that require individuals suffering from serious addictions to admit themselves into a controlled environment. Inpatient programs in Massachusetts generally span over 28 days to six months. The first step in an inpatient program is medically assisted detox. Doctors and addiction specialists at Berkshire CSS monitor the individual’s vital signs as the drugs leave their system. Some inpatient rehab programs also provide counseling for family members to provide encouragement and emotional support. In inpatient programs, patients have access to 24-hour medical supervision.

    Residential

    Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient’s individual requirements.
