Inpatient Programs at AdCare RI

We provide a full continuum of care that spans from medical detoxification/withdrawal management all the way through to outpatient programming/telehealth. Your treatment will be individualized and assessed on an ongoing basis, and we’ll start your aftercare planning with you on Day 1.

AdCare Rhode Island offers a variety of inpatient treatment options, including:


Inpatient Detoxification

Detox is a crucial aspect of the inpatient program, as it addresses the body’s physical/chemical dependence on a substance. Going through detox allows individuals to safely and comfortably go through the process of  withdrawal under the care, support, and supervision of our medical staff and to focus on the emotional and psychological elements of healing. AdCare Rhode Island provides medically-monitored withdrawal management services for a range of addictive substances and provides both comfort medications and detox medications (e.g, methadone) to help you through the process.

We use evidence-based methods to help you make decisions about the type of care that is right for you. As you move through detox, you’ll receive 24/7 supervision from our caring and compassionate medical staff. You’ll also be introduced to the disease concept of addiction and the principles of a healthy recovery and may participate in both individual and group therapy.

ASAM level = III.7

Enhanced Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

In addition to standard opioid and alcohol detox protocols, AdCare Rhode Island has established a unique set of enhanced MAT protocols for patients suffering with opioid use disorder (OUD). During inpatient treatment, individuals are provided with information and can initiate on MAT protocols that include Suboxone maintenance therapy, naltrexone/Vivitrol treatment, and methadone maintenance treatment. Patients who are currently on methadone maintenance and doing well in recovery also have the opportunity to rapidly detox from high doses of methadone and transition to either Suboxone or Vivitrol over a four-week period.

Crisis Stabilization Unit

This program provides dual diagnosis services for individuals with co-occurring substance dependency and psychiatric symptoms. This can be an effective alternative to inpatient psychiatric care for individuals whose symptoms are/can be stabilized with psychiatric medications. An initial psychiatric evaluation will determine the best medication regime to stabilize symptoms. Individual counseling, intensive psycho-education group work, and expressive therapies are utilized to address issues related to substance use, as well as psychiatric disorders.

Once patients are stabilized, they often step down to residential treatment for continuing care and support.

Acute Residential Programs

“I am very satisfied with the help I received and I would not change a thing.”

Rehabilitation and the Acute Residential programs provide the structure and treatment needed to support a healthy and ongoing recovery. The program offers a full range of clinical services to stabilize health and engage individuals in treatment and aftercare, including:

  • Family integration into treatment

Veterans Programming

Veterans and first responders are welcome at AdCare.
