The Suboxone Program within Harrington Recovery Services is an opioid addiction treatment program that offers a combination of opioid replacement medication combined with comprehensive addiction treatment.
Upon admission to the Suboxone Program, every client will have a comprehensive initial assessment to identify the individual needs of each client. Upon admission to the program, each client will participate in addiction group therapy. Along with group therapy, clients will have the option to be involved in individual, couples and family therapy.
Patient Navigator Program
Our Patient Navigator Program was put into place in 2015, following a multi-level transformative program to increase access and remove barriers for patients with mental health or substance use disorders.
Licensed behavioral health clinicians, nurses and patient navigators work within Harrington’s medical/surgical inpatient units in Southbridge, its Emergency Care Center in Southbridge, and several Harrington Physician Services family medicine offices, to provide comprehensive care for patients with complex healthcare needs.
The clinicians work directly with the doctors and other care staff to identify and assess at-risk patients with mental health and/or substance abuse disorders. The navigators work with the individual patients and their families to remove barriers that prevent or restrict their ability to receive behavioral health services. The navigators can help with transportation, translation, or insurance complications, in addition to other services.
Staff will also monitor hospitalized patients and provide follow-up evaluations and coordination of services after discharge.
