Taunton, Massachusetts Alcohol And Drug Rehab Options

Alcohol and drug addictions are difficult to recover from when you don’t have support. Getting into a professional treatment program in or around the Taunton area can ensure you receive the care needed to overcome substance use disorder.

Addiction Treatment In Taunton, Massachusetts

Effective rehab programs provide you with personalized care instead of having you receive generalized treatment. These individualized treatment programs focus on your needs for a full recovery from addiction.

This ensures that specific issues or challenges are addressed, such as needing treatment for both a substance use disorder and a mental health disorder. Vertava Health of Massachusetts in the Berkshire Mountains offers these kinds of personalized services not too far from Taunton.

Drug And Alcohol Detox Programs

Withdrawal may occur after you stop drinking alcohol or using cocaine, heroin, or other drugs. During this time, you’re at risk of having potentially severe symptoms and strong cravings.

Detox programs with medical supervision play an important role in ensuring that you’re safe and comfortable during withdrawal. After detox, your body and mind should be better prepared to start a treatment program.

Inpatient Drug Rehab

Inpatient treatment centers are set up to provide a comprehensive level of support with 24-hour supervision and a team of therapists and other professionals. During your stay at a residential or inpatient facility, you’ll also have peers around for support.

At an inpatient program, your daily schedule might include group therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, stress management, and other services. These kinds of facilities also provide amenities as well, such as a pool or gym.

Outpatient Addiction Treatment

A moderate or mild addiction doesn’t require all of the supervision and support you get with inpatient care. Instead, you might do better with an outpatient program, which involves attending several therapy sessions.

You’ll travel to an outpatient treatment center for these sessions, so you can continue other daily responsibilities. Outpatient programs are offered at varying levels of support, such as partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient programs.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

An opioid or alcohol addiction creates certain challenges in terms of recovery, such as a higher risk of relapse or serious withdrawal symptoms that require medical care.

Being in a medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program offers specific services that are designed to minimize these risks. The components of a MAT program include a combination of medication, such as methadone or Vivitrol, with behavioral therapy and peer support.


Aftercare services are offered at some addiction treatment facilities. These services can help you get ongoing support when you’re done with an inpatient or outpatient rehab program.

In some cases, you can get help finding a safe home to live in. Other services you might have available include employment assistance, peer support services, and other community resources.

How To Pay For Addiction Treatment

You can use your health insurance to cover all or some of the cost of a rehab program depending on the kind of coverage you have. You’ll need to contact your health insurance provider and the rehab center to determine the amount of coverage you have and the services you’re eligible for.
