At Lake Ave Recovery, we aim to make the entire continuum of care as seamless as possible. From detoxification, to rehab, to Day Treatment, to Sober Living, to Individual Counseling, we can help formulate an individual treatment plan that is right for YOU. Drug addiction and its treatment are complex and multi factorial. Fortunately, there are general principles and methods applicable to virtually all drug addictions.

There are also unique features specific to each drug. Treatment becomes even more complex when an individual is using more than one drug – a common problem. Treatment of drug addiction, to be successful, means that all the substances which an individual is using must be addressed specifically, it should be kept in mind that other substances that a person misuses must be considered to optimize the chance for long-term freedom from all illicit drug use. We can HELP with creating a lasting plan for success. We specialize in outpatient day and evening addiction treatment, and have great relationships with a number of Greater Boston and Central Massachusetts detox programs. We will conduct a risk assessment in order to place you in the appropriate setting, and create a perfect match to your treatment needs. Determining the extent of alcohol and/or drug use and a possible combination with other harmful substances is included in the overall risk assessment. Suspected other substance use may initially be only one substance in addition to alcohol, but further investigation may reveal that the individual is using more than just one other substance, such as prescription drugs. Knowing the list of prescribers for a patient in treatment is helpful, especially for patients who are elderly or disabled enough to be unable to provide a clear history. When an older person is suspected of prescription drug use, the addiction treatment team will need to completely review those and list the different types of prescriptions used, including names, dosages, and times of use. It is important to note that the process of treatment may be slower for disabled or older individuals in an alcohol recovery program. The changes that are associated with aging, such as slowing of body processes and decreased sensory perception may make the process of overcoming addiction more complicated and extend thetime of recovery.

It is also important to be aware of the cognitive changes that can occur with prolonged alcohol use when making decisions for the treatment plan. The following discussion highlights both the inpatient and outpatient venue for substance use disorder treatment and progress. Whether it be an inpatient detox or rehab center in Massachusetts, we will remain in contact with you and your medical personnel in order to ensure you are receiving comfortable and effective care. We will continue to serve as your liaison until you are ready to leave detox and/or rehab to continue treatment in Lake Avenue Recovery’s discreet and dignified outpatient setting.
