Suburban Hospital Addiction Treatment Center

Service Provided: Outpatient and inpatient treatment


Inpatient Detoxification
Inpatient detoxification is conducted on the inpatient Behavioral Health Unit under the supervision of trained medical and nursing staff familiar with factors influencing withdrawal. Detoxification is the medical procedure by which a client is supervised through the actue withdrawal process.

Intensive Outpatient Dual Diagnosis Program (phase 1)
Dual Outpatient Treatment (DOT) Clients who enter this level of care attend treatment 5 days per week (Monday – Friday) for 30 sessions (approx. 6 weeks).  Clients attend educational sessions and group counseling.  Clients are assigned a primary counselor who provides continuing assessment of progress and facilitates the clients treatment planning. Clients are evaluated and followed by a board-certified-psychiatrist while in the program.

Intensive Outpatient Dual Diagnosis Program: Continuing Care (phase 2)
The dual diagnosis Continuing Care group is designed to provide additional support and focuses on helping clients identify and manage relapse warning signs and high risk relapse factors. In the Continuing Care group clients continue working on issues identified during intensive treatment and develop or improve coping skills to deal with issues that come up in early recovery. The group meets one time a week for 2-hours. Clients generally attend a minimum of 20 groups (approx. 20 weeks).

Evening Structured Outpatient (phase 1)
Evening Outpatient is conducted Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm and lasts 21 sessions (approx. 7 weeks).  It is organized so that each meeting includes a 45 minute educational session as well as a 1 hour group counseling session.  This level of care is particularly suited to persons with no prior treatment experience or those who maintain full time employment.

Evening Structured Outpatient: Recovery Skills Program (phase 2)
Treatment does not end at the conclusion of the structured treatment. Addiction is a chronic disease.  As a task of treatment, each client is directed to formulate an aftercare plan prior to completion of the initial phase of treatment.  Clients then continue in the Recovery Skills Program to improve their potential for lasting recovery.
The Recovery Skills Program meets twice per week for 1 hour focusing on the transition from intensive treatment to community based recovery and establishing a solid recovery program.

Comprehensive Opioid Outpatient Detox and Treatment
This program offers a comprehensive approach to the management of opioid addiction using buprenorphine, marketed as Suboxone.  Suboxone is effective in relieving withdrawal symptoms, reducing cravings and blocking the effects of other opioids. In addition to medication management clients are involved in substance abuse and mental health treatment. The combination of medically monitored detox and structured outpatient treatment provides a safe, supportive therapeutic foundation for the beginning of the recovery process.

All of Suburban Hospital’s Rehabilitation Programs stress abstinence as a cornerstone of recovery.  Clients will be breathalyzed randomly and will be required to submit random, observed urine samples in order to facilitate the recovery process and ensure a drug and alcohol free treatment environment. Introduction to self-help meetings such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and Smart Recovery is part of the treatment plan.
