    Conditions and Issues Treated

    Substance abuse is the excessive use of any type of drug. This includes alcohol, medications and illegal drugs. Substance abuse is treated with a combination of physical and mental treatments. Right Turn patients detox and follow up with therapies that target the underlying cause of the addiction.

    Opioid addiction is one of Massachusetts‘s most prominent forms of addiction. Drugs, including heroin, oxycontin, and fentanyl, are the most common. To relieve pain, or ease other ailments, they are professionally prescribed, but they are often abused because they and the feelings they give are addictive.

    Addiction is treated by detoxifying the body, so the medications’ chemicals are no longer impacting the individual. Right Turn offers therapies to correct behavior and target the root of the problem are supplemented during and throughout treatment.

    Levels of Care Offered

    This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Aftercare Support, Detox, Drug Rehab, Intensive Outpatient, Intervention, Outpatient, Partial-Hospitalization, Residential, Sober-Living / Half-Way, with additional therapies available as listed below.

    Detox treatment begins when the patient leaves their surroundings of family and friends, which is usually when they are most vulnerable. Being in a safe environment surrounded by medical professionals provides them with the safety net many of them need to get over their addiction. With kind and caring staff members, patients can feel relaxed, and they will need to start by admitting that they have a problem in order to get better.

    If a person goes through detox treatment, they will understand their addiction better, and they won’t want to relapse and lose all the benefits of sobriety. They can see the effects of using drugs and how it makes them feel, which will make them want to quit their addiction.

    Drug detox is vital to the recovery process, and it ensures that a patient will be in a safe environment during their withdrawal.

    Intensive outpatient programs mostly conduct meetings on weekdays. Group therapy is the main element in most intensive outpatient programs. Most IOPs last for about 90 days and include drug use monitoring and testing. A Massachusetts IOP, like what’s offerd at Right Turn, take much more time than a standard outpatient program. Some programs offer other services as well, such as employment assistance and medication management.

    Outpatient rehabilitation is a treatment that exists if a patient is not checking into Right Turn long term. In addition to helping them recover, the patient attends regular therapy sessions and detox and participates in other therapies. However, this is all primarily done from home. As a follow-up to inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment is usually recommended.

    After rehabilitation, it helps people return to their everyday lives. It may also be an alternative to inpatient care in some situations. If they cannot leave their jobs, children, or don’t have the money for inpatient care, people can choose this method. Inpatient therapy, however, is the best method and most suggested level of treatment offered by Right Turn in recovering from addiction.

    The halfway point between inpatient and outpatient care is Right Turn‘s Partial Hospitalization Program. It is for individuals in Massachusetts who struggle with addiction but do not need treatment round the clock. Patients may reside in a recovery facility anywhere from 18 to 30 hours per week, but they can sleep at home. The program length could be anywhere from one to six months.

    A sober living home aims to reinforce sobriety and learnings from inpatient and outpatient programs. It’s a supervised environment in Watertown, MA managed by Right Turn, which is guaranteed safe and free from addictive substances. There are strict rules regarding curfew and responsibilities, such as shared chores.

    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.

    An intervention is a meeting organized by the addicted individuals’ family and friends. It lets the individual know that they are loved and cared for by their friends and family. It is designed to make the addicted party accept getting additional professional assistance.

    Interventions are hosted by a mental health and addiction specialist at Right Turn in Massachusetts, who knows how to work with people struggling with addiction. When it comes to having a loved one finally and happily consent to care, an intervention service can make all the difference.

Career coaching may also be offered to patients to help them get back into the Massachusetts workforce.

    Unresolved trauma is often a key reason why many patients resorted to substance abuse. Trauma could be physical abuse, sexual abuse, war, natural disasters, divorce, accident, loss of a loved one, etc. If trauma is the primary cause of substance abuse, then both issues must be addressed.
