|Naloxone (Narcan) Announcement: Death from a drug overdose can be prevented through the use of Naloxone, a drug administered to counteract the effects of opioids. For patients who have received a Naloxone kit at Butler Hospital and for anyone in the community who is, or knows someone who is, at risk for an overdose, please view the Naloxone education page for refresher information on administering Narcan and for information on how to receive a Narcan kit at your local Walgreen's Pharmacy in Rhode Island.
The Alcohol & Drug Partial Hospital program provides treatment tailored to your needs in a supportive, structured environment. Each morning, you will attend a series of groups designed to teach healthy recovery skills. On a typical day, you will participate in two groups in the morning and two groups in the afternoon. Breaks and individual appointments are scheduled between groups. There is a one-hour lunch break, which begins between 11:30 a.m. and 12 p.m., depending on your individual appointment schedule. You will also meet individually with your physician and your counselor before returning home in the afternoon. The program is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., and is closed on weekends and holidays. However, expert Butler staff are always available to patients 24-7 should the need arise.
The Alcohol & Drug Partial Hospital offers evidence-based treatment for people dealing with addictions. By working with you and your family members, program staff carefully evaluate your individual substance abuse issues while helping you to learn new skills that are most supportive to your recovery. Participating in the partial hospital treatment program for addictions enables you to develop new coping strategies over time. These strategies strengthen your ability and confidence when dealing with situations that trigger substance use. The partial hospital setting also provides the opportunity for you to return to your own surroundings in the evenings and discuss any challenges you may have encountered when you return to the hospital the next day.
The involvement of your family and others who play a significant role in your life is very important to the success of your treatment and recovery. However, no contact with your family or others will be made without your signed consent, except in the case of an emergency. Family education and support groups are part of the weekly schedule, and individual family sessions are available by appointment. Additional support groups offered outside of the partial hospital program are also available on the Butler campus.
