Harrington HealthCare is seeking an Adult Inpatient Psychiatrist to join our Harrington Recovery Services Team at Webster.
Webster's Co-Occurring Disorders unit is a 16-bed adult unit that treats mental health and substance use disorders simultaneously. We work in conjunction with our Partial Hospitalization Program and other step-down models of care to transition the patient back to day-to-day activities.
The C0-Occurring Disorders Unit (CDU) at Harrington is dedicated to the treatment of each individual's needs in a proactive, supportive and therapeutic environment.
The goal of our program is to improve our clients' emotional, behavioral, social and physical well-being.
About Our Program
The inpatient Harrington CDU provides treatment for those individuals with mental health issues that are compounded by substance use. Psychiatric and substance use disorders will be treated by a combination of both medication and therapy.
Substance abuse treatment includes both detox services and medication-assisted management of opioid addiction. Recovery services will be provided in a safe structured environment.
Our clients with opioid addictions may be either detoxed or started on Suboxone (buprenorphine) to help prevent relapse from opioids
obtained on the street.
The average stay for our clients is seven to ten days. After discharge, the client will be referred to Harrington outpatient services, including our Partial Hospitalization Program, for the continuation of treatment.
