Health Care Resource Centers Peabody
HCRC Peabody provides outpatient medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorder. Our clinic off of Route 1 offers early medication hours starting at 5:30 AM. We are an established program with a warm, patient-centered staff. Each patient has a unique treatment plan along with individual and group counseling. You can count on our decades of experience of helping people recover from their opioid use disorders.
Evidence shows that combining medication and therapy in a MAT program decreases the possibility of relapse. Our methadone-based MAT programs use a comprehensive approach that treats withdrawal symptoms and promotes a change in behavior. Your care team will support you through every part of treatment and coordinate your services. Learn more about our treatment options and values below.
At HCRC, we dedicate ourselves to providing patient-focused care that considers the person in addition to the diagnosis. Your care team will consist of doctors, nurses, counselors and social workers who want to support you during your recovery. During your first appointment, you will have a medical and clinical intake, where we examine every aspect of your health. Then, we will create a personalized treatment plan that considers your unique needs.
The Peabody clinic is one out of 10 total HCRC locations in Massachusetts. When you need care for your opioid use disorder in another part of the state, you can find additional HCRC clinics in select regions. We have a strong presence in the Boston metropolitan area and cities along the Connecticut River. You can also visit HCRC clinics in Connecticut, Maine and New Hampshire.
At HCRC Peabody, we specialize in MAT programs that use methadone to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms. The substance use treatment industry considers methadone the gold standard of care because of its effectiveness. When you take methadone as directed by your doctor, you can stop taking opioids with a lower chance of relapse. You will visit our clinic every day during the beginning of your treatment. When you meet the state and federal guidelines, you can take your medication at home.
Your individual therapy sessions will help you address the thoughts and behaviors behind your opioid use disorder. The counselor will teach you how to manage urges to use opioids and cope with everyday stress. They will also examine your past situations and traumas to see if you have an underlying cause behind your addiction. We aim to provide one-on-one counseling that helps you get back to living a fulfilling life.
Group therapy lets you connect with other patients and share your recovery progress. The counselor will lead a discussion about your treatment goals and strategies among patients going through the same situation. You get the opportunity to give and receive support in a group that wants every member to succeed. Talking about recovery with other patients also helps you stay committed to treatment and learn new coping skills.
For patients eligible through their insurance, our front desk staff can coordinate transportation through PT-1 ride. Patients who drive to our clinic may use our on-site parking lot.
Change can happen, and we can help you make that change. Let us help you work toward an opioid-free life in a safe and confidential setting. We have more than 6500 patients in recovery, and you could be the next. To learn more about our programs or schedule an intake, contact our team online or call 978-535-9190 today.
