I remember thinking
that I could handle it…that everything was okay. My life was controlled by drugs. One day, I hit rock bottom. I felt utterly hopeless and I knew I had to make a change."
  • Inpatient Detoxification Open or Close
    DETOXIFICATION

    154 Oak Street, Westborough, MA (males & females)
    861 Main Street, First Floor, Weymouth, MA (males only)

    Spectrum’s detoxification programs provide 24-hour medical supervision and compassionate nursing care to ensure safe withdrawal from alcohol, opioids and other substances. Medications are used to suppress withdrawal symptoms and make clients as comfortable as possible during detoxification. During this time, we work with each client to prepare them for the next step in the recovery process. Because addiction is a chronic disease, most individuals benefit from continued treatment to learn how to live drug-free and sustain their recovery over time.
