Located in Mentor, Massachusetts, the Fieldstone Center is one of several reputable addiction treatment centers located in the state. Established in 1978, the Fieldstone Center has received awards from the American Association for Therapeutic Drug Activities (ATDA), the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD), the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), and the National Association for Social Drug Therapy (NASDT). The Fieldstone Center offers both inpatient and outpatient substance abuse treatment programs. Substance abuse is the most common mental illness in the United States, with nearly 20 million individuals suffering from substance abuse at some point in time. The substance abuse treatment at the Fieldstone Center includes both inpatient and outpatient substance abuse treatment, including specialty clinics that treat patients suffering from co-occurring disorders such as alcoholism and depression; patients with bipolar disorder; schizophrenia; and other psychoses.
A majority of the substance abuse treatment patients in the program are diagnosed using a particular psychological criterion. Substance abuse treatment at the Fieldstone Center incorporates a multi-pronged approach to treating substance addiction. This comprehensive approach addresses the physical, mental, and social consequences of substance abuse, teaches the patient how to cope with symptoms, gives knowledge about the cause of substance addiction and how to avoid relapse, develops a comprehensive treatment plan, and helps the patient to commit to this course of treatment. The goal of the substance abuse treatment at Fieldstone is to make the patient an independent, productive member of society and return him or her to their families and their own lives.
In addition to inpatient substance abuse treatment, the Fieldstone Center offers outpatient substance abuse treatment programs for those patients who wish to recover but do not require inpatient services. This program includes crisis intervention and referral services, medication monitoring and refill services, and education and support for families of substance abusers. The majority of our residents do not require inpatient substance abuse treatment; however, we do recommend that they engage in individual counseling or get some outside counseling or support. We strongly urge all families and friends to help our residents by supplying them with information and encouragement. Our facility is committed to treating both physically and psychologically, regardless of your situation.
