AdCare Rhode Island - Portsmouth Reviews and Ratings Details
The following is based on a combination of Surveys of Alumni, Staff, Loved Ones, and Reviews and Ratings from around the web.
Reviews at a Glance
- Family Program
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
- Medical Detoxification
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal. CSRI offers outpatient detoxification from opioids only.
- Individualized Treatment
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
- Aftercare Support
Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a treatment program. CSRI staff supports and facilitates building community connections including 12 step involvement, vocational counseling, and psychiatric services.

Working with the professionals at CSRI has allowed me to begin enjoying life again. The team shows a genuine care and concern for not only my well-being but also for my family; which has endured difficult times prior to and during my recovery process. With the tools utilized and learned during sessions I have confidence that my future will be full of success.Peter, Massachusetts
So many people have misconceptions about drug and alcohol use, there is much trauma that affects the family when living with an active user or living with recovery. For years, I didn't know how much I needed to care for myself. CSRI has provided me and the rest of my family with intense levels of intervention and counseling, aided us in each understanding our past and new roles and identities. Specifically, my counselor is helping me get past the trauma, adjust more easily, and be a better me so I can be a better parent.Tracey, Rhode Island
