Treatment Insights

The AdCare name represents innovation, quality and cost efficiency in alcohol and drug treatment. AdCare’s integrated system of care offers a nationally-recognized hospital facility in Worcester, Massachusetts; an inpatient treatment center in North Kingstown, Rhode Island; and a network of outpatient offices conveniently located throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island. AdCare, which is owned and operated by American Addiction Centers (AAC), embraces a philosophy of quality-driven, patient-centered programs that are also relevant to the challenges of today’s healthcare environment. AdCare’s continuum of treatment levels and modalities enables us to match the needs of the patient with the most appropriate level and cost of care. We believe that addiction is a disease that affects not only the individual, but his or her family as well. Successful treatment requires placement at the appropriate level of care and involvement of the family throughout the treatment continuum. This treatment philosophy has allowed us to advocate for the patient while remaining responsive to the interests of commercial healthcare companies, Medicare, and other insurers.

Nursing staff and facilities were largely acceptable. Councilors were responsive. However, the doctor was extremely unresponsive to my questions and other patients needs and concerns.

My experience at Adcare was extremely positive and live-changing. I finally confronted my defects snd addressed them, or should I say began to address them, in a serious, lifelong manner.

Went in for detox during pandemic what a mess!!! Was switched beds 4 times then someone stole my clothes. I left place made me pay for my own ride home! Terrible place


I was there recently and this place is ran like a joke staff are more worried about flirting with other staff or even sometimes clients i mean place needs more structure


Strengths:Clean, 2-3 person rooms, somewhat relaxed atmosphere Weakness:For profit agency! When attempting to ween off medication they are not competent. No physician on staff. Staff not willing to pu...


I worked there for more than 10 years. No licensed medical professionals work as independent contractors for the facility.


The clients are respected but there is no program, not much treatment I have worked in the mental health/detox field for 20 plus years. This is by far the worst place i have worked!!!!


Great staff. Needs more faith based programs. Great meals, plenty of snacks and plenty of much needed cigarette and vapor breaks.


Overall a very good program


SSTAR Detox is a great place to start your sober life. Unfortunately, I relapsed and I need hospitalization for my next detox. Hopefully, I will not need this again.


Good program but needs better accommodations


I had hit my "bottom!" I''ve been sober since.


counseling was good, food not so much. I really liked it and utilized there services


Friendly,understanding,knowledgeable staff but the place is understaffed. Excellent place to begin a recovery "journey" if you are truly determined to succeed in your recovery and apply yourself with...


there staff was good, there very strong. i really found it helpful it was a great place


Very accepting to all addictions and the counsellors are great- caring and respectful. Lack of funds is evident in the lack of true nutritional type meals and extra curricular - yoga, reiki etc- and i...
