At AdCare, we have 3 co-ed detox units, two with 26 beds and one with 24 beds, for a total of 76 detox beds. Average stay is 5 to 7 days, depending on the severity of the withdrawal symptoms and the substances used. We provide 34 beds for our inpatient rehabilitation program. The average length of stay is 7 to 10 days.
AdCare hospital has a team of drivers who travel all over New England and New York to pick up and bring home patients. Prior to admission, patients complete an intake assessment over the phone. This helps the doctor and clinical team understand the patient’s substance abuse, medical conditions, psychiatric conditions, past treatment episodes and current medications. On the first full day they will meet with a counselor for an assessment.
Detox patients will have their meals brought to the unit. Rehab patients will go the cafeteria for their meals. Patients have meal options and the hospital can accommodate dietary restrictions. There is also a dietitian on staff.
Housing consists of 3 co-ed detox units. There are 2 people per room, and 2 rooms share a connected bathroom. Laundry machines are available on-site and daily housekeeping is provided.
Cellphones are not allowed and are locked up upon admission. Computers, iPads or tablets, iPods, MP3 players or radios are also prohibited.
Individual Family Sessions are arranged through the patient’s counselor. Sessions help family members gather additional information at the time of admission and assist the family in addressing individual concerns as the patient prepares for discharge.
Family and Friends Support Group AdCare Hospital hosts a Friends and Family Night every Thursday for anyone with a loved one in treatment at AdCare Hospital. Facilitated by an experienced professional, this group is also open to the community. Meetings offer ongoing, therapeutic support in a group-mentoring setting.
Individual family sessions may be arranged through the patient’s counselor. A Family Educational Program is also available for family members of patients in detox or rehab treatment, and is held every Saturday at 10 a.m. The family members participate in an hour-and-a-half educational session, followed by visiting and lunch from 11:30 a.m.–1:00 p.m. A family wrap-up is available for those with loved ones in rehab only.
