Topsail Addiction Treatment

Melrose, MA Drug Rehab

If you’re looking for drug rehab near Melrose, Massachusetts, Topsail Addiction Treatment can be your safe haven for recovery. Located in nearby Andover, MA, we specialize in providing individualized care that works.

We use a step-down approach to addiction rehab that allows those in recovery to gradually transition through treatment on a schedule that works with their lives — this way, we can guarantee that everyone who needs it has access to treatment that opens the door to a successful recovery.

Why Is Access to Treatment So Important for Melrose Residents?

In 2018, nearly 2000 people in Massachusetts died as a result of an opioid-related overdose according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). This epidemic and the many people struggling with addiction to all drugs and alcohol in our region mean that access to quality, individualized treatment is more important than ever.

At Topsail Addiction Treatment, we understand the needs of Melrose residents looking for a safe, comfortable place to get clean and start recovery on stable ground. We’re proud to be a leader in providing evidence-based treatment to anyone who needs it.

Treatment Programs Near Melrose, MA

With multiple levels of care available — including PHP, IOP, and standard outpatient — more people can find treatment that works for them.

Step 1: Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

PHP is recommended for people struggling with severe substance abuse that needs more intensive attention. It is as close to inpatient treatment as a person can get without sleeping at a facility. It’s offered 5 days per week for 8 hours a day, making recovery a full-time job and offering the best chance to achieve sustainable sobriety.

For those struggling with active drug or alcohol abuse, PHP is a way to build a strong foundation before making the transition through progressively lower levels of care. Some of the services included in PHP are:

  • Individual counseling: One-on-one therapy involving a certified addiction counselor is the bedrock of successful addiction treatment. To battle a disease that affects people both physically and mentally, the approach to treatment has to involve psychotherapy.
  • Group therapy: In group therapy, people can share common experiences, share lessons in recovery, and get strength from a supportive network of their peers. Often, this network becomes a source of lifelong strength — people who go through addiction treatment together form powerful bonds.
  • Aftercare planning: PHP is by far the biggest investment in recovery offered at Topsail, and part of that includes preparing for the future. We help patients plan their transition through our levels of care as well as making sure they have access to support outside our facility, job preparedness, and other critical life skills.

Step 2: Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Whether IOP is a person’s first step in treatment or they’re scaling down from PHP, it allows an individual to add balance to their life. It’s not always possible to drop everything to get help, but that doesn’t to mean that treatment should only be available to those who can.

IOP at Topsail Addiction Treatment involves a commitment of around 3-4 hours a day, 3 times a week. It’s offered in the morning or after business hours to ensure that we can help anyone seeking drug and alcohol rehab, no matter their responsibilities in life — their work schedule, family demands, or other obligations.

Customized combinations of our core services — evidence-based counseling, group meetings, aftercare planning, and various life skills workshops — make up patients’ IOP schedule.

Step 3: Outpatient Treatment

Our outpatient programming is for individuals who are in an advanced stage of their recovery. It’s a source of consistent support for continued growth, as patients continue to learn how to live a healthy, sustainable lifestyle, free from drugs and alcohol.

Outpatient treatment is intended to be extremely flexible, because of our understanding that no two people struggling with addiction will have identical requirements. Offered on a needs-based schedule between 2 and 5 days per week, outpatient programming can include anything from our core services of individual and group therapy to medication-assisted treatment (MAT), continued life skills development, workshops and relapse prevention techniques.
