AdCare Hospital Outpatient is an outpatient rehab center with various locations in Massachusetts. With a long history of treating people with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders in the New England region, and as a respected innovator in the field of substance abuse, AdCare incorporates modern, evidence-based treatment into its curriculum along with a variety of other effective therapeutic interventions. With its more recent acquisition by AAC, AdCare now has the ability to utilize Addiction Labs of America for rapid genetic tests and results in treating substance abuse issues.

Transportation Assistance

At AdCare, we understand that not all of our patients have working vehicles. As a result, transportation to AdCare facilities could be difficult. However, for patients participating in AdCare Rhode Island’s treatment program, transportation needs become simple challenges. AdCare provides complimentary transportation to and from our facilities. Whether an AdCare driver meets you at a location or if AdCare provides you with funds for public transportation, you’ll be able to rest easy about transportation concerns and make it to daily programming – no matter what.

Levels of Care

  • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).
  • General Outpatient (OP).

Medical Capabilities

We understand that some patients may not require an inpatient stay but still need assistance in withdrawing from pain medications, opioids, benzodiazepines, alcohol, and more. AdCare’s Outpatient Detoxification Program in Worcester, MA, combines medical supervision during withdrawal with alcohol and drug treatment to help clients continue their therapeutic abstinence.
