Levels of Care at AdCare Drug and Alcohol Rehab Rhode Island

AdCare rehab offers the following services to its clients:

Medical Detox

Depending on the type of substance a client is coming off of, the duration of their addiction and their current mental and physical health, the detox experts at AdCare may recommend medications to manage the withdrawal symptoms. Each client gets 24/7 monitoring and supervision to check their vital signs and symptoms. Unlike other detox centers, the experts at AdCare encourage clients to start attending group and individual therapy from the very first day of their detox to support their recovery process and ensure early healing.

Inpatient Care

As one of the best rehabs in Rhode Island, AdCare provides comprehensive residential or inpatient programs, including individual, family, and group therapy, support groups, case management services, and psychoeducation. These services and their intensity may vary depending on the specific needs of each individual. However, a standard inpatient program at AdCare is likely to include

  • Up to seven hours of daily group therapy
  • Specialist-led educational groups
  • Process and focus support groups
  • Supervised health and wellness groups
  • Relapse prevention services
  • Evidence-based therapies like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and motivational interviewing
  • Regular family integration through family meetings
  • Individual therapy, at least once a week
  • Treatment of co-occurring mental health issues

Intensive Outpatient Programs

Intensive outpatient programs, or IOPs, form a crucial part of the AdCare continuum of care model. IOPs usually serve as a step-down level of care from a residential or inpatient program, but clients are welcome to join it as a standalone program. The main aim of an intensive outpatient program at the rehab is to enable every client to:

  • Maintain sobriety while educating themselves about addiction and the recovery process
  • Improve their emotional and physical stability in a sober lifestyle
  • Learn and build the skills necessary to maintain sobriety
  • Recognize life changes required for a sober life
  • Learn how to cope with the effects of addiction on relationships in a healthy way
  • Establish daily behavioral skills to manage daily life changes without resorting back to substance use

Standard Outpatient Program

Most people who complete an IOP at AdCare step down to a standard outpatient program that runs for one to two weeks. This program aims to allow clients to practice the skills they learned in previous treatment programs in real-life situations and scenarios. It is also when the team of experts collaborates with clients to start working on their discharge planning and aftercare.

Alumni Services

The alumni services at AdCare allow all new and old clients to keep in touch with their therapists and caretakers even after they finish treatment. These services allow them to:

  • Remain in contact with their fellow alumni

How long does AdCare Rhode Island detox last?

While the exact duration of the detox process may vary from one client to another, most require a few days to a few weeks to entirely withdraw from an abusive substance. To determine the estimated length and severity, experts may consider the type of substance a client is consuming and for how long. In a small number of cases, it may take months before the withdrawal symptoms completely resolve. Regardless of the duration one spends in detox, the staff members at AdCare Rhode Island continue to provide treatment and support to help clients go through this difficult time with success.

How is an IOP different from a residential treatment program?

AdCare North Kingstown allows its clients to seek help from both intensive outpatient and residential treatment programs. Both programs are markedly different from each other in terms of intensity and structure. IOPs provide clients with the freedom to live in their homes as they continue to seek treatment in rehab. They are ideal for people who do not have a support network and provide less-restrictive environments to seek recovery. IOPs also serve as a good step down for people who have finished treatment in a residential level of care and now wish to seek ongoing support through a less-intensive program. On the other hand, residential rehab requires all patients to move to the onsite accommodation of AdCare and live there under 24/7 expert supervision throughout the entire duration of treatment. This level of care is ideal for someone with a serious addiction or with other co-occurring disorders that may put their safety at risk if left unsupervised.

Will my insurance cover inpatient treatment at AdCare rehab?

Yes, AdCare North Kingstown Rhode Island works with most insurance companies to cover the cost of its inpatient program. The rehab provides this facility under the Affordable Care Act and other federal parity laws. However, it is essential to remember that each type of health insurance plan is different depending on which insurance coverage for inpatient treatment at AdCare may differ for every patient. It is best to check with your insurance provider and determine your treatment benefits in the New England region. AdCare is in-network with many major insurance companies in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, including Humana, Tufts, Aetna, Cigna, and Blue Cross Blue Shield. The rehab’s inpatient facility in Massachusetts also accepts Medicaid and Medicare.

What happens after I finish treatment at AdCare Rhode Island?

Once a patient is about to leave AdCare, the medical professionals begin working on their aftercare plan. The team involves the client on every level of planning and decides the best path forward, which can be more or less intensive according to the individual’s needs and treatment goals. For some, the aftercare plans may involve their loved ones and family members, while others may be encouraged to keep participating in support group meetings that take place in community settings.
