The admissions begins after you meet or contact with the admissions desk, generally via phone. After the admissions paperwork is complete, you’ll meet one-on-one with a counselor and other healthcare professionals to determine your proper treatment track. Our admission process is quick and easy, and usually takes an hour or less to complete. AdCare is usually able to offer next-day intake appointments.

      At AdCare, we understand that not all of our patients have working vehicles. As a result, transportation to AdCare facilities could be difficult. However, for patients participating in AdCare Rhode Island’s treatment program, transportation needs become simple challenges. AdCare provides complimentary transportation to and from our facilities. Whether an AdCare driver meets you at a location or if AdCare provides you with funds for public transportation, you’ll be able to rest easy about transportation concerns and make it to daily programming – no matter what.

      Levels of Care

      • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).
      • General Outpatient (OP).

      Medical Capabilities
