Experts estimate that 11.3% of residents in the Boston metropolitan area are currently struggling with substance use disorder. Alcohol and heroin are the major substances of concern in our city – research shows that 25% of residents report binge drinking, and the rate of heroin overdoses increased by 76% in a two-year span. With our new location on Beacon Street, Providence Treatment is bringing accredited, proven programs of care to the Boston area. Our highly regarded, award-winning methods incorporate assessments, laboratory monitoring, and best practice therapies with positive outcomes.
Who We Treat
Our services are specifically tailored to the needs of professionals. We’ve seen the impact that high-pressure careers can have on individuals’ mental states.
Physicians have access to a wide variety of medications and are more likely to misuse prescription drugs than those in other fields. These rates rise for those who work in emergency medicine and highly specialized areas like anesthesiology.
Legal professionals are diagnosed with depression, anxiety, and alcoholism at higher rates than the general population. 21% of licensed, employed attorneys meet the clinical criteria for problem drinking. Deadlines, long hours, and mountains of paperwork all contribute to the prevalence of substance use disorder among lawyers.
Pilots deal with back-to-back flights and are responsible for hundreds of lives each and every day. The stress associated with this profession can push many pilots to attempt “self-medication” with marijuana, stimulants, or alcohol. This habit can have deadly consequences; 11% of pilots involved in aviation accidents tested positive for drug use.
No matter which field you work in, Providence can help. Our Boston addiction treatment services can be personalized to the needs of executives, licensed professionals, and everyone in between. If you have lost your credentials due to substance use and need rehabilitation, our center is your destination. We offer qualified outpatient care that can meet the standards of governing bodies throughout Massachusetts.
What We Treat
The Providence Treatment team utilizes the latest clinical practices and evidence-based methods to treat substance use disorders of all types, including addictions to:
- Opioids (prescription painkillers)
- Prescription stimulants
- Sedatives and hypnotics
We are also equipped to treat those with co-occurring mental illnesses. These instances of “dual diagnosis” require swift, simultaneous treatment. When a patient presents with addiction and a mental health condition, we take immediate steps to resolve both disorders. We offer therapeutic intervention and medication management services for:
- Bipolar disorder
- Sleep disorders
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Programs Designed for Boston Professionals
We know what it takes for professionals to recover. Our Boston office offers three tiers of treatment. The Foundation Group provides the structure and accountability associated with partial day treatment programs. Our intensive outpatient programming falls under the purview of the Providence Treatment Discovery Group. And finally, those seeking general outpatient care should inquire about our Integration Group.
Our evidence-based programming covers everything from initial assessments to neurofeedback. Providence Treatment’s Boston addiction treatment services are administered by masters- and doctoral-level clinicians and include:
- Comprehensive evaluations
- Professional monitoring services (random testing of urine, blood, hair, or nails)
- Specialized groups (LGBTQ+, women, legal professionals, nurses, survivors)
- Dual diagnosis (Mosaic Program)
- Family education
- Medication-assisted treatment (available with referral)
- Psychiatric support
- Medication management
- Biofeedback and neurofeedback
- Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)
We also provide a group for professionals in training. In this setting, young adults who are new to their fields can find the support they need for navigating early sobriety. The Professionals in Training Group can accommodate medical students, law students, nursing students, pharmacy students, physician assistant students, veterinary students, and others.
