Inpatient Substance Use

Inpatient Substance Use

We know that substance use has a debilitating impact on the entire family system and making a decision to enter treatment is a big step for the person seeking help. Roxbury Treatment Center has been providing inpatient substance use services for over 30 years and has the experience of trained physicians, nurses, and clinicians to help guide you through this process.


During the detox phase of treatment a patient will be taken off all substances that are considered habit forming.  These can include pain medications, anti-anxiety medications, or other medications associated with a tendency for use. Our physician and nursing staff will ensure that you are comfortable during this time and will address any ailment or issue that arises. While we don’t use Suboxone or Methadone for opiate detox, we do use a variety of comfort medications and medical protocols to assist in this process.

Patient Stories


During the rehabilitation phase of treatment a patient will focus on the reasons for use, triggers, and coping skills as well as address any underlying mental health needs. While the majority of our treatment is group based, all patients have access to a variety of treatment options including:

  • Individual Counseling
  • Group Counseling
  • Family Counseling
  • Psycho-education
  • 12-Step Programming
  • Yoga, Meditation, and Relaxation Groups
  • Psychiatric Medication Management

Co-Occurring Disorders

Many of our patients come to Roxbury Treatment Center with co-occurring or secondary mental health issues that play a role in why they use substances.  Because of this, we provide every patient with a full psychiatric evaluation to ensure these needs are being addressed during the course of their treatment. By addressing mental health needs in conjunction with a patients substance use, we can help assist in understanding how these two disorders can impact each other. We are then able to provide a more comprehensive continuing care plan for after they complete treatment.

Substance Use Family Education Service

When family and loved ones are involved in the recovery process, their loved one in recovery has a much better chance of success. We also know that at times, a family member or loved one can feel lost as to how to help.  This is why we developed our family education service.  This service provides instruction about addiction and co-occurring mental illness and offers family and loved ones a much-needed support system. This is not visitation, nor will your loved be present. Topics that will be discussed may include:

  • Addiction basics.
  • Co-occurring mental health disorders and how they impact addiction.
  • What to expect during your loved ones treatment process.
  • How families can recover from the impacts of addiction.
  • What to expect after your loved one completes treatment.

Education sessions are held on select Saturdays. If you are interested in attending our next session, check out the Family Education Flyer for more information and dates. This is an excellent opportunity for you to learn more about addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders and how you can minimize the impact of your loved one’s addiction on you and your life.
