Opioid Rehab in Massachusetts

The opioid addiction crisis has swept the country and shows no signs of slowing down. When someone becomes addicted to this type of drug, they cannot recover on their own. They need to find a quality opioid addiction treatment center that provides the structured care necessary for them to leave their addiction behind. Lake Avenue Recovery offers outpatient programs in a homelike facility in a scenic part of Massachusetts. Our skilled staff uses their years of experience to help people understand what led to their addiction and stop abusing opioids for good.

About Our Opioid Addiction Treatment Centers in Massachusetts

Our opioid addiction treatment centers offer three levels of outpatient care. Outpatient treatment takes place during therapy sessions at a facility and does not require the person to live there. Our levels of care include:

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP): This program runs from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day and includes a delicious catered lunch. 

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): Daytime IOP runs from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for two to four weeks. We also offer an Evening IOP that runs from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. up to four times per week.

Outpatient Rehab (OP): Our least intensive program includes just a few sessions per week and often comes after completing one of the higher levels of care. 

Before we admit someone to our program, we provide a thorough assessment so we understand their exact needs. This allows us to decide which level of care will best meet their needs.

You are not alone. You deserve to get help.

Benefits of Opioid Addiction Treatment in Massachusetts

Attending our opioid addiction treatment centers in Massaschusetts affords people several benefits. First, we employ leaders in their field of addiction treatment who understand what it takes to overcome opioid abuse. Our staff teaches people to come to terms with what contributed to developing their substance use disorder. From there, they learn skills that allow them to embrace recovery fully and enjoy lifelong sobriety. 

Our programs provide structure and a schedule that is normally lacking in the life of someone addicted to opioids. Attending scheduled therapy sessions provides a healthy use of a person’s time and keeps them focused on staying sober.
