Residential treatment is the highest level of care for substance use disorders. The need for residential treatment is determined after looking at an assessment of needs. Our staff works with potential patients to complete the intake process and insurance companies to complete the necessary steps to joining treatment. CHC Addiction Services has two types of residential treatment:
The Rocco Antenucci Memorial Adult Residential Center (RAMAR) is a 28-bed facility. This is a 90-120 day program for men and women who need intensive counseling and around the clock monitoring. Patients receive individual, family and group counseling, medical services, transportation and other therapeutic activities. RAMAR is different than many other substance use disorder treatment centers because all forms of MAT can be maintained, including methadone, buprenorphine and Vivitrol. In addition to medication-assisted treatment, patients develop self-management and recovery skills for the future.
Touchstone is a supportive housing program for women in treatment at CHC Addiction Services. The program offers independent housing for single women, women with disabilities or those who are pregnant and/or with children who are Medicaid-eligible. Children 5 and under may stay on-site with their mother, while older children may arrange for weekend stays. Patients are provided with group therapy, child care, laundry and dining services. While staying at Touchstone, patients take part in group and individual counseling and Expressive Therapy, and can be in medication-assisted treatment (MAT) programs. Touchstone provides a Partial Hospitalization level of care.
The average stay of a woman in this program is 90 days. From here, the goal is to graduate into less restrictive programming or aftercare. Patients are encouraged to continue attending 12-step meetings or self-help groups, as well as building a strong sober support community.
