Substance Abuse Treatment in Fitchburg, MassachusettsCommunity Health Connections’ approach to substance abuse treatment in Fitchburg, Massachusetts offers patient-focused care from compassionate, qualified professionals. Our behavioral health professionals have the experience and expertise to provide a more complete diagnosis for patients with co-occurring disorders stemming from substance abuse. This high level of care sets CHC apart from other treatment facilities because our level of substance abuse treatment focuses on the complete treatment of co-occurring disorders, resulting in a greater chance for continued recovery after the individual leaves treatment.

Alcohol and drug addiction can overwhelm an individual with negative self-images and destructive thoughts. Patients struggling with addiction tend to think it is impossible for substance abuse treatment in Fitchburg, Massachusetts to work and that they’ll be happy in recovery. Addicts believe they will be miserable for the rest of their lives and that the only way to deaden their pain is with alcohol or drugs. Having a co-occurring disorder only serves to reinforce these thoughts.

At CHC, we understand that seeking substance abuse treatment for a drug or alcohol problem can be a terrifying idea. We’re here to make that Fitchburg, Massachusetts substance abuse treatment as comfortable as possible. We treat addiction according to the disease model and work directly with the patient to develop a personalized substance abuse treatment plan that is based on their unique needs. We understand that addiction affects each individual in a different way, and there is not a one-size-fits-all substance abuse treatment for addiction. We’re committed to providing our patients with the substance abuse treatment and necessary coping skills to live a life of recovery.

Community Health Connections understands the difficulty individuals and their loved ones face when struggling with both a mental health disorder such as major depression, PTSD, or bipolar disorder, and a substance abuse disorder such as heroin or alcohol addiction. Any treatment that does not address both the mental health disorder and substance abuse addiction handicaps that individual’s long-term recovery.
