Addiction is a complicated and highly individual disease. When it comes to treatment, there is no one size fits all solution. Each and every client comes to us with different circumstances, preferences, and histories. But, there are a few things that we know for sure – detox, followed by a residential stay at a credible inpatient treatment center – is a highly effective start.
The vast majority of people who enter drug or alcohol addiction treatment begin with inpatient detoxification. This is absolutely vital to ensure that they detox harmful substances safely, and with medical supervision and support. But inpatient detox is short, and those who transition to residential treatment are known to benefit greatly from the structure, counseling, peer support and programming it provides.
The word rehab can sometimes provoke negative reactions these days, but inpatient treatment is truly that: rehabilitation. Through motivational interviewing, individual and group therapy, life skills training, 12-step meetings, family engagement, relapse prevention, continuing care planning, fitness and mindfulness, a stay at the New England Recovery Center (NERC) helps clients address the past, mend the present and prepare for the future.
Residential treatment provides clients the opportunity to focus on learning essential recovery skills and preparing for the next phase of addiction treatment – perhaps at one of our 13 outpatient centers across Massachusetts.
