Introduction and Basic Services

Located in Providence, Rhode Island and an affiliate of CharterCARE Health Partners, Roger Williams Medical Center is a comprehensive health care facility, and the only general hospital in Rhode Island with a level IV medically supervised alcohol and drug detox program. The primary offerings are inpatient detox usually followed by a regimented Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP). Because the program is located within a hospital, dual diagnosis support and other medical and psychiatric resources are readily available. In addition, Roger Williams offers a four-week series of family support meetings.

Facility and Meals

The detox unit at Roger Williams is equipped with 15 beds, and another 12 beds for individuals in treatment for co-occurring disorders. There are both private and semi-private rooms, with never more than two to a room. The program is structured to protect the safety of the client and ensure their complete attention on their recovery. To this end, clients are not permitted cell phones or personal laptops during the detox phase of treatment.

Meals are made-to-order and delivered to the room at specific times. Clients choose from a menu of healthy foods following a balanced diet. Meals may include sugar but never caffeine.

Treatment Protocol and Team

Based on an intake assessment by an interdisciplinary team of physicians and counselors, clients are provided a personalized treatment plan designed specifically to meet the mental, emotional and physical components of their detox. The facility offers both medically-assisted and non-assisted detox options, and the typical length of stay is between three and seven days. Suboxone is available for those individuals experiencing opioid withdrawal. During this phase, clients can expect individual and group therapy guided by mental health professionals. In addition, the unit offers 12-step groups on-site that clients are encouraged to participate in.

PHP is offered for clients that have completed the detox phase. Running 45 days long at five days a week and five hours a day, PHP is an intensive process. The program provides clients with the medical support they need while they continue therapy like individual and group therapy, disease and recovery classes as well as 12-step.

Family therapy is also offered at Roger Williams, with a focus on listening to the family members of clients while offering education about the disease of addiction. Family meetings are held on Tuesday evenings in the Behavioral Health treatment room

Roger Williams provides constant medical supervision with an around-the-clock nursing staff, physicians and addiction recovery counselors. The team is also comprised of psychiatrists, physicians, LCSWs and MHPs.

Bonus Amenities

As previously mentioned, Roger Williams offers a four-week series of family support meetings catered to loved ones of those in treatment. These are held weekly and designed to ease the transition back home for clients.

Summary

Designed to treat both the physiological effects of substance abuse and any co-existing medical conditions, the alcohol and drug detox program at Roger Williams Medical Center offers clients constant medical supervision and innovative substance abuse therapies via a full continuum of care. In terms of treatment options in a very small state, this facility is certainly an invaluable resource.
