About Upham’s Corner Health Center Substance Use Services

Upham’s Corner Health Center, located on 415 Columbia Road, Dorchester, Massachusetts, is a comprehensive outpatient drug treatment facility that also offers a range of substance use and psychiatric services. People with substance use disorders (a term that covers the conditions formerly known as drug addiction, dependence, abuse, and others) can receive guidance, treatment, and counseling at their Dorchester location.

The main aim of the substance use treatment specialists at Upham’s Corner Health Center is to give the appropriate guidance and comfort to adult patients throughout their journey toward long-lasting sobriety. By providing effective, individualized programs, recovering individuals will have all of the resources required to overcome substance use disorders and other co-occurring psychiatric conditions.

Personalized addiction treatment and more

It’s important to remember that not all substance use disorder treatment approaches are ideal for everyone. At Upham’s Corner Health Center, patients will get a treatment plan that is designed specifically for them. The center’s team of experienced clinicians will work with each patient to determine what treatments are best suited for the situation.

Upham’s Corner is committed to accommodating the individual requirements of patients to best ensure a safe and sustainable recovery. Counselors at Upham’s Corner also make it an objective to give individuals the tool and techniques needed to help them after the end of their program.

Why seek treatment?

Attempting withdrawal or detox without professional help is extremely difficult for most patients. The majority of those who attempt to quit on their own end up failing or even putting their lives at risk. Like any mental disorder, most people with a substance use disorder require the help of professional medical personnel and therapists to overcome the disease.

The time to get help is now. Contact Upham’s Corner by visiting today and learn about the substance use treatment options available.
