Do not hesitate to make a call.

My experience at Adcare was immaculate. I came in detoxing off of Fentanyl, with no desire to change my ways. The detox staff were very supportive, they did everything they could to make me feel comfortable with the withdrawals. When I got to residential, my brain did a 180, and I decided i wanted to make the change. There were a plethora of groups to go to, you could speak to a counselor anytime, the community was very supportive, and it was overall just a positive rehab facility. I recommend Adcare over ANY rehabilitation place in rhode island. Do not hesitate to make a call.

I am over 2 years clean from a 7 year IV heroin addiction

“River oaks saved my life! Thanks to them the outstanding work they did with me I am over 2 years clean from a 7 year IV heroin addiction. I now work at a rehab and help others! The techs were amazing I try to be similar to them with my own work. Empathetic kind and compassionate. The nurses were great. They helped me get through such an tough time and always went the extra mile. The therapist really helped me work through my issues. As a child I was sent to two rehab facilities each were shut down due to abuse so I was very hesitant to go to treatment. This place really opened my eyes! I’d rather my family member go here than anywhere else.”
