Chemical Dependency Recovery Center
Welcome to the Chemical Dependency Recovery Center (CDRC) at Huntington
Hospital. We offer both inpatient and outpatient programs to help end
the cycle of addiction. The inpatient recovery program is a medically
supervised detoxification and rehabilitation, twelve-step based program
to teach you and your family about the nature of addictive diseases. Our
outpatient program offers day services for adults with chemical dependencies
who are experiencing moderate to severe symptoms. We will assist you in
developing a personal program that will serve as a foundation for lifelong
recovery from the bondage of addiction.

Learn About Our Program
We provide the best in medical care, expert addictionologists and the latest
evidence-based practices known to specialists in this field.
As treatment begins, patients will meet with counselors, nurses and other
clinicians. The staff will ask questions about your medical history, prior
treatment, alcohol and drug history and your current life situation. Confidentiality
is maintained with utmost respect. We make every effort to keep our patients
safe and comfortable, recognizing the challenge often associated with
undertaking treatment of this nature. We applaud your effort and we are
here to help.
The Chemical Dependency Recovery Center at Huntington Hospital will address
the basic components of recovery which are tied to medical/physical, psychosocial
relationships and spirituality. There are a number of treatment modalities
included in the program to address each area.
As treatment begins, a safe withdrawal will be the primary concern of your
medical team. Physicians collaborate with the treatment team to ensure
patients receive the best medical care possible when progressing through
the detoxification phase of treatment. The nursing staff will closely
monitor vital signs, medication needs, sleep patterns and nutritional
intake, among other key aspects of your care. Most individuals will still
be able to attend groups and begin assignments during this phase of treatment.
Patients are assigned a counselor and are provided a workbook and other
assignments when therapeutically appropriate.
There are several different types of groups to attend throughout the treatment
process. These groups are designed to address the most frequently encountered
barriers patients face in the recovery process. We also provide a number
of educational groups for patients and family members to better understand
addiction. In addition to group therapy modalities, patient’s have
access to a full gym, Pet Assisted Therapy, massage therapy, music therapy,
yoga and many sessions of individual one-to-one therapy. There will be
in-house twelve-step meetings and resources to help bridge the transition
to twelve-step meetings in your community. Our goal is to assist with
reintegration and provide support for ongoing recovery once our patients
leave the hospital.
