Addiction Recovery Services

The Samaritan Center offers a wide range of addiction services for adults. More details about the programs available are listed below.

Recovery Services

Our Addiction Recovery Services provide care to adults misusing substances through in-patient, outpatient and intensive programming.

Because every person and every experience with substance use disorder is different, we offer a variety of programs designed to meet individual needs. You will be assessed to determine the proper course of treatment.

While there are different levels of treatment, our comprehensive approach supports the mind, body and social of every individual we serve. We offer specialized treatment for men and women in all of our programs including MAT (Medication-Assisted Treatment), counseling and group therapy.

Intensive Outpatient Therapy

Intensive outpatient therapy (IOTs) are treatment programs used to address addictions, depression, eating disorders, or other dependencies that do not require detoxification or round-the-clock supervision. They enable patients to continue with their normal, day-to-day lives in a way that residential treatment programs do not. Whereas residential treatment requires that clients reside on site, clients in intensive outpatient programs live at home.

IOPs are sometimes used in conjunction with inpatient programs as a way of helping clients to more smoothly and seamlessly adapt back into their families and communities. They are designed to establish support mechanisms, help with relapse management, and provide coping strategies. IOPs are a great choice for those who live in a safe and supportive environment and have family and home commitments that prevent them from participating in an in-patient program.

IOPs are not recommended for those that are dealing with severe cases of addiction.

Partial Hospitalization Program

The Partial Hospitalization Program, PHP, is an outpatient treatment program designed to treat individuals that are misusing substances who require a higher level of care than the standard outpatient services, but do not meet the criteria for hospitalization.

Individuals in PHP will receive comprehensive treatment services and medical monitoring during programming hours and return to their place of residence at the end of each day.  PHP is a comprehensive recovery program in which individuals work closely with many different treatment professionals such as nurses, peer recovery specialists, therapists and psychiatrists.

The services that make up the PHP program include Outpatient Detox, Medication Management, Group Counseling, Individual Therapy, Holistic Treatments, Aftercare Planning, Primary Health Care and Community Resource and Peer Recovery Specialists.

PHP may provide medications to safely detox off substances, to decrease cravings, block the affects of alcohol or drugs, managing protracted withdrawal symptoms and psychotropic medication. Individual Therapy will be utilized to work on unhealthy behaviors and Group Counseling will focus on specific topics or skills.

Our Treatment Team will work with individuals to ensure their daily health needs, basic community resources such as housing, food and transportation are all addressed. The team will also formulate an after care plan to care for any potential pitfalls after discharge from the plan.

The PHP Program operates Monday through Friday, six (6) hours each day. Priority of admission given to pregnant women, women with dependent children and intravenous drug users.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders as well as sustaining recovery and preventing overdose. This is a clinically driven program and specialized for each patient’s needs.

MAT is primarily used for the treatment of addiction to opioids such as heroin and prescription pain relievers that contain opiates. The prescribed medication operates to normalize brain chemistry, block the euphoric effects of alcohol and opioids, relieve physiological cravings, and normalize body functions without the negative and euphoric effects of the substance used.

Samaritan Center uses Federal Drug Administration (FDA) approved medications and they are based on the individual’s substance misuse.

The MAT program has proven to be clinically effective and reduced the need for inpatient detoxification services. MAT is a more comprehensive, individually tailored program of medications and behavioral therapy that addresses the needs of the patient.  The ultimate goal is a full recovery and the ability to live a self-directed life.


Accudetox is a type of therapy said to be clinically effective and cost efficient in the treatment of substance misuse. This treatment is to control withdrawal symptoms and help patients become more clear-minded.

The Accudetox process is generally administered in a group environment. A provider will place small, sterilized needles into specific parts of the patients’ ears. The group will hold their session and when complete needles will be removed from the patients.

Accudetox is most commonly used for individuals who are detoxing, or newly recovering from addiction. Detoxing can be difficult, both physically and mentally, and this treatment is known to relieve its symptoms. This type of treatment is also helpful for those suffering from anxiety, depression, trauma, or the aftermath of a natural disaster
