A family support group meets on Thursdays in BRMC’s auditorium from 6 – 7:30pm to help family members understand substance use disorders and to learn effective ways to deal and cope with their loved one’s addiction and recovery.
Inpatient Treatment is often necessary for a safe and successful medical withdrawal from alcohol, heroin, benzodiazepines and prescription pain medication. Patients requiring detoxification can do so in a safe environment staffed with trained, competent, and caring professionals. The time period for detoxification ranges from 4–8 days.
Patients who require more intensive treatment will find the structure and programming in our 24 hour a day inpatient programs to be “...just what the doctor ordered...” BRMC residential inpatient programs have a history of providing effective treatment.
Out Patient Programs
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Not every chemically-dependent patient requires inpatient or residential treatment. Many have been successfully launched into recovery through an effective outpatient treatment program. The IOP offers 3 hours of treatment in either a day or an evening program. The treatment team, which includes you, your counselors, and a psychiatrist when needed, will determine how many days a week and how long you will attend the program.
Partial Hospital Program (PHP)
Patients who require more intensive outpatient treatment, which includes daily medical/psychiatric and nursing attention, are best treated in the PHP which meets daily Monday - Friday, five hours a day.
The goal of outpatient treatment is to provide support, structure and therapy that will allow patients to remain on their journey toward self-mastery while living at home and in their community.
Research has verified three essential elements that support recovery for a loved one and his or her commitment to abstinence:
- Aggressive intervention
- Family participation
- Sustained community support -
involvement with a 12 Step Recovery Program.
