    Conditions and Issues Treated

    A detailed list of the primary cases commonly treated here.

    Opiod Addiction, Substance Abuse


    Substance Abuse + Addiction

    Substance abuse typically leads to addiction, which requires specialized treatment programs at Psychological Center Pegasus to address. Many people benefit from inpatient drug rehabilitation, which includes inpatient acute care and residential rehabilitation. Other levels of care include intensive outpatient therapy, individual counseling, and support groups. Family therapy is also an essential part of treatment for substance abuse.

    Opioid + Opiate Addiction

    Opioid addiction treatment helps people addicted to opioids in Massachusetts curb their drug use. The selection of a treatment setting depends on the severity of the addiction. Mild cases are usually treated in outpatient facilities; severe cases need hospitalization or treatment in a residential facility. Doctors use medicines along with counseling and behavioral therapies to treat the addiction. The treatment includes medication, counseling and therapy. It can also include group counseling, individual counseling and family counseling.


    Levels of Care Offered

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

    Aftercare Support

    After treatment, addiction treatment can be frightening for newly sober people. Aftercare support provided by Psychological Center Pegasus is designed to give resources and help on a continued basis. It can involve finding housing in and around Massachusetts, setting up 12-step meeting groups, continued medical monitoring, and counseling.

    Inpatient Care

    Inpatient rehab means living at the Lawrence, MA facility while all aspects of an addiction or co-occurring disorder get addressed. This helps limit the distractions and increase the focus on recovery. Typical inpatient rehab stays are approximately one month long.

    Residential Treatment

    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.

    12-Step Program Facilitation

    Alcoholics Anonymous is responsible for the development of the popular “12 Step Program”. Most substance treatment centers have their own 12 step program designed to help users achieve sobriety. Because of this, most treatment plans follow a similar pattern when broken down.

    The first three steps depend on the patient, so they are more specific and situational. The succeeding four steps center on practical issues brought on by substance abuse. Steps 8 and 9 deal with the social and emotional repercussions of addiction, encouraging patients to make amends to people they have wronged. These are followed by two steps revolving around the further exploration and reinforcement of Steps 1 to 9.

    The last step requires an individual to extend a helping hand to people who are still in the early stages of their recovery.

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

    Negative feelings are common in substance abuse disorders. If not recognized, they can cause co-occurring disorders. CBT involves strategies that help to change the thinking and behavioral pattern. It can be administered as a monotherapy as well as a part of combination therapy.

    Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

    A type of cognitive-behavioral therapy is Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. It is intended for those who are vulnerable to self-harm and suicidal thoughts. Psychological Center Pegasus aims to help patients understand the connection between their feelings, emotions, and behaviors and provide them with the tools to make a difference in Lawrence, MA.
