Addiction Treatment Programs
in Medford, MA
Outpatient programs in Massachusetts for substance abuse offer valuable treatment options for individuals seeking help with addiction while allowing them to maintain some level of flexibility in their daily lives. Outpatient programs are designed for individuals who do not require round-the-clock supervision and can live at home. These programs typically include a combination of therapies such as individual counseling, group therapy, and family therapy. They also provide education on addiction, relapse prevention strategies, and support groups.
Outpatient programs are most suitable for individuals with mild to moderate substance use disorders, those transitioning from more intensive care, or those who require ongoing support and maintenance in their recovery journey. The flexibility of outpatient treatment makes it a viable option for individuals who need addiction treatment while continuing to fulfill their work, family, and other responsibilities.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) for substance abuse offer a higher level of care compared to standard outpatient programs while still allowing individuals to reside at home. IOPs are designed for individuals who require more intensive support but do not need 24/7 supervision.
These programs typically include a comprehensive range of therapies, such as individual counseling, group therapy, and family therapy. Participants attend therapy sessions several days a week, often for extended periods each day. IOPs also provide education on addiction, relapse prevention strategies, and access to support groups.
Our program and other IOPs are most suitable for individuals with moderate substance use disorders, those who require structured support and a more intensive focus on recovery, and those who need a step-down program after more intensive treatment.
Lastly, a lack of control over substance use, multiple unsuccessful attempts to quit, and continuing use despite negative consequences indicate a severe addiction that requires immediate intervention. Recognizing these signs is crucial in helping individuals seek the necessary support and treatment for addiction.
Day programming for addiction offers a structured and comprehensive level of care while allowing individuals to return home in the evenings. Our program is designed for individuals who require intensive treatment but do not need round-the-clock supervision. In day programs for addiction, clients can expect a daily schedule that involves a range of therapeutic services. These may include individual counseling, group therapy sessions, family therapy, and psychoeducation about addiction and related topics. Day programs also often provide medical evaluations, medication management (if necessary), and skill-building activities to help clients develop coping strategies and life skills for long-term recovery.
The program’s focus extends beyond addiction to address co-occurring mental health issues, making it suitable for individuals facing dual diagnosis challenges. With the support and structure offered in our day program, individuals receive comprehensive care and guidance on their journey toward sobriety and improved mental health.
Evening addiction treatment programs offer a valuable and flexible approach to helping individuals overcome substance abuse issues. These programs recognize the diverse schedules and responsibilities that individuals may have during the day, making it easier for them to access the support they need without disrupting their daily lives. The evening sessions typically provide a structured environment where participants engage in various therapeutic activities, counseling sessions, and group discussions aimed at addressing the root causes of addiction.
These programs often incorporate evidence-based treatment options tailored to the specific needs of participants. Cognitive-behavioral therapy, support groups, and holistic approaches are commonly integrated to address both the psychological and physical aspects of addiction. Additionally, the evening setting fosters a sense of community among participants, as they share their experiences and support one another in their journey to recovery. Overall, these programs play a crucial role in providing accessible and effective support for individuals seeking to overcome addiction while maintaining their daytime commitments.
