Substance Abuse Treatment Options in the Providence, RI Area

If you are at the point in your life where you are seeking substance abuse treatment for yourself or a loved one, the emotional stress of the addiction itself can be compounded by the confusion of not knowing where to turn for help. While drugs and alcohol can be found everywhere, rehab options are not. And while we hear all the time about the addiction pandemic, the news doesn’t provide much information on specific rehab locales. A family doctor, counselor, or local AA/NA chapter may be good starting points for advice about places offering substance abuse help. Here are some places in the Providence, RI area which can help in the rehab/recovery.

The Providence Center/Talbot Treatment provides, according to its website, a “wide range of substance abuse treatment centers for adults.” It offers both impatient and outpatient treatment programs.

These programs include “intensive outpatient services” and are available to both men and women who would like to recover from addiction while still living at home. Inpatient programs are also available. These programs allow people to live in a “supportive, substance-free environment.” The program runs from initial assessment through to aftercare. Long and short term programs are available, include the 10-14 day “fast track” program which offers intensive help beyond what a person would get as an outpatient.
