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 btained 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.
