Residential treatment is the highest level of care for substance use disorders. The need for residential treatment is determined after looking at an assessment of needs. Our staff works with potential patients to complete the intake process and insurance companies to complete the necessary steps for entering treatment. CHC Addiction Services has two types of residential treatment:
The Rocco Antenucci Memorial Adult Residential Center (RAMAR) is a 24-bed facility. This is a 90-120 day program for men who require intensive counseling and around the clock monitoring. Patients receive individual and group counseling, medical services, transportation and other therapeutic activities. RAMAR is different than many other substance use disorder treatment centers because all forms of MAT can be maintained, including methadone, buprenorphine and Vivitrol. In addition to medication-assisted treatment, patients develop self-management and recovery skills for the future.
From here, the goal is to graduate into less restrictive programming or aftercare. Patients are encouraged to continue attending 12-step meetings or self-help groups, as well as building a strong sober support community.
Though not traditional “residential treatment”, Touchstone offers 16-units of supportive housing with an integrated Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP). Touchstone serves women with a diagnosed substance use disorder and offers specialized programs for women with children or those who are pregnant/postpartum. While staying at Touchstone, patients take part in group and individual counseling and can be in medication-assisted treatment (MAT) programs. On-site food service, child care and laundry is available to all residents. Children under the age of five may be eligible to live on-site with their parent.
The average stay of a woman in this program is 90 days. From here, the goal is to graduate into less restrictive programming or aftercare. Patients are encouraged to continue attending 12-step meetings or self-help groups, as well as building a strong sober support community.
