Arbour Hospital’s adult substance abuse programs provide safe, therapeutic environments in which adults can recover from drug or alcohol addiction. We offer programs at various levels of care to accommodate the severity of every patient’s condition: inpatient, intensive outpatient (IOP), electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), and outpatient counseling.
Program services include evaluation and assessment, treatment and recovery planning, individual and group counseling, aftercare and discharge planning, and family therapy when necessary. Staff includes a physician specializing in addictions.
All substance abuse programs also treat patients who have a dual diagnosis. This describes when a person has both a psychiatric disorder and drug or alcohol addiction. Treatment may be medication-assisted if deemed necessary during assessment.
Inpatient care is for people with severe addiction disorders that require detoxification and 24-hour care. Our substance abuse units are licensed by both the Department of Mental Health and the Department of Public Health Bureau of Substance Abuse Services.
Inpatient treatment protocols include the use of Subutex, a medication that reduces the effects and withdrawal symptoms of opioid dependence.
IOP gives patients a heightened level of self-awareness about their addiction and provides solid relapse prevention tools, including coping skills. Patients in this program can live at home and go to work while working towards recovery.

This outpatient service features individual counseling, family therapy, medication management, and group programs. It can be used as a stepdown or means of maintaining long-term sobriety after graduating from a more intensive program.
