Health Care Resource Centers Hudson
HCRC Hudson was the first methadone program to open in New Hampshire in 1999 and has expanded to offer buprenorphine services for medication-assisted treatment (MAT). Our Hudson treatment program includes services tailored to unique populations, including specialized treatment for young adults and pregnant and parenting women. Several of our therapy groups also focus on trauma-informed counseling. We offer 15 groups, including:
Medication-assisted treatment, counseling and support services create a comprehensive care strategy. We provide substance use counseling to adults ages 18+ through our individualized and integrated care services. Our team collaborates with patients and their families to promote recovery in the communities we serve.
Our clinic has a wide range of services that meet diverse addiction recovery needs. We will partner with you to create a treatment plan tailored to your symptoms, situations and experiences. Your team of doctors, nurses, therapists and social workers will coordinate your care to offer comprehensive support.
Addiction medicine considers methadone the gold standard for MAT when combined with counseling. This medication reduces your cravings and withdrawal symptoms while decreasing the effects of opioids. At the start of your treatment, you will visit us every day to get your medication and achieve stabilization. These appointments give you added structure as you get used to recovery. Methadone provides the foundation for you to focus on your commitment to recovery and a healthier lifestyle.
In addition to methadone, patients have the option to receive buprenorphine as part of their MAT program. Like methadone, buprenorphine is a medication administered daily to treat opioid use disorder by helping you manage your withdrawal symptoms and cravings. Buprenorphine has been proven to be an effective option for medication-assisted treatment, and our medical providers will work with you to determine if it should be a part of your individualized treatment and recovery plan.
Every patient’s treatment plan includes individual counseling sessions. You and your counselor will work together to understand opioid use disorder (OUD) and find ways to manage it. Your counselor will help you identify treatment goals and provide the resources needed to meet them. They can help create plans to rebuild relationships, rejoin your community and regain a fulfilling life. During these sessions, you will also learn coping skills to use in situations that can trigger the urge to use.
You may choose from 15 different counseling groups, where you can talk about your experiences with other patients. One of our trained counselors will guide a discussion about your treatment. Our group therapy sessions help you build a support network of peers who have the same goals as you. During group therapy, you can find solidarity with others and learn from others who are also facing the challenges of overcoming addiction.
Opioid use disorder impacts multiple parts of a patient’s life, so we provide services that address specific needs. In addition to MAT and counseling, we offer other support services in the form of:
· Coordinated Pregnancy Treatment: We can coordinate our treatment plans to suit the unique needs of pregnant women by collaborating with their obstetrician. Our team will offer services that promote you and your child’s health and well-being. They will address the emotional and physical aspects of pregnancy and opioid use disorder.
· Discharge Planning and Support: Patients who decide to discontinue our services will receive tapering guidance and discharge support from their care team. Our staff can help you create a recovery strategy to help you stay committed to your goals.
· Guest Medication Services: If you attend a clinic in a different area and need medication while in Hudson, we can help. Ask your home clinic to contact us about guest medication services, where we provide temporary guest dosing services during your time here. It is required that coordination between clinics occur prior to your visit.
We offer on-site parking for patients who drive to our clinic. If you need assistance with transportation, contact us to learn about your options. You may qualify for public transit through the New Hampshire Medicaid program.
