Addiction Program for Adults

A Full Range of Services That Only A Hospital Can Offer 

Because Silver Hill is a complete psychiatric hospital it can offer a wide range of treatment options for addiction or substance use disorders depending on the patient’s needs. Whether treatment includes detoxification in our Inpatient Program, longer term, on-campus Transitional Living in our Addiction Program, or the structured experience afforded in our Intensive Outpatient Program, Silver Hill’s continuum of care helps assure the best possible treatment is available when and where needed.

 

We also recognize that the entire family can be affected when one member becomes addicted to drugs or alcohol. For this reason we have created a comprehensive four-day Family Program.

 

Silver Hill patients also receive the most comprehensive post-discharge follow-up offered by any psychiatric hospital in the form of our Recovery Support and Follow-up Service (RSFS). Adult patients discharging from Silver Hill Hospital’s residential Transitional Living Program for Chemical Dependency and Co-Occurring Disorders are automatically enrolled, without any added charge, in the Recovery Support and Follow-up Service for an additional 12 months. The RSFS therefore provides a 13-month relationship with Silver Hill for patients treated in these two comprehensive treatment programs.

 

The Addiction Program provides a highly structured, intensive program of education, behavioral skill development and increasing psychological awareness. The focus of this abstinence-based program is to help patients identify triggers and learn relapse prevention strategies that will help them remain substance-free.

 

For patients with a diagnosis of a co-occurring disorder that includes a psychiatric disorder and addiction the treatment approach is a combination of medical and psychotherapeutic interventions. The objective is for the patient to develop and understanding of the dual nature of their illness and to develop the strategies necessary to manage both. In addition, the programs for patients with addictive and co-occurrence disorders include 12-Step meetings to increase the likelihood of continued abstinence.


The First Step - Inpatient Treatment

Our adult inpatient program for addiction is a short-stay treatment program in which patients withdraw from alcohol, cocaine, heroin, prescription opioids, tranquilizers and other substances of potential abuse. The primary goal is a medically safe, physically eased and emotionally supported detoxification.

After Inpatient Treatment – Transitional Living On Campus

Inpatient treatment serves to stabilize and detoxify the patient. But it is often too brief to help them deal further with the underlying problems that may be causing their addiction. That’s why at Silver Hill we offer continuing treatment programs to serve the patient’s needs beyond the inpatient phase. Our Transitional Living Program for Addiction (TLP) is one of them. It is designed to help patients continue their recovery process, while living at the Silver Hill campus, until they are ready to return home for further community-based treatment. .

Continuing Silver Hill Treatment While Living At Home

Inpatient treatment serves to stabilize and detoxify the patient. But it is often too brief to help them deal further with the underlying problems that may be causing their addiction. That’s why at Silver Hill we offer continuing treatment programs to serve the patient’s needs beyond the inpatient phase. Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is one of them. In this program the patient lives at home and comes to the Silver Hill campus for scheduled IOP sessions.
