Addictions Therapy

Helping make our communities healthier

Those battling addictions can find answers, and pave a road to recovery through Meridian’s Addictions Therapy services. A variety of treatment options are available to meet the specific needs of each patient.

Meridian Health Services provides treatment and support for those experiencing addiction associated with substance use. Depending on the severity of the abuse or addiction, a number of treatment options are available including:

  • Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOT) This level of outpatient care typically provides three hours of structured programming per day, three days per week, for eight to twelve weeks. IOT is appropriate for individuals who do not require monitored withdrawal from an addictive substance or round-the-clock supervision. Individuals can live at home, continue with their normal day-to-day activities, and still receive the high-intensity treatment they need. IOT is structured to establish support mechanisms, help with relapse management, and provide coping strategies.
  • Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) Medication-Assisted Treatment uses medications, such as Suboxone and Vivitrol, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a “whole-person” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders.
  • The Addictions & Recovery Center [ARC] provides two levels of care: residential detoxification and residential treatment. Residential detoxification lasts approximately three to five days, followed by residential treatment that provides clients the required structured support for recovery. Clients are treated through whole-person health with behavioral therapy, intensive rehabilitation, wellness education and post-treatment support. Residential treatment is based on individual needs but typically lasts nearly 30 days.
  • Maternal Treatment Program is an outpatient treatment program that provides care and support to mothers struggling with substance use and their newborn babies born suffering from withdrawal.
  • Women’s Recovery Home provides a solid foundation for women struggling with substance use disorder and seeking recovery. The program consists of a structured, 2-Phase addiction and behavioral health treatment, with a holistic approach treating the mind and body in a residential group home setting.


40 million Americans — around one out of every 7 people — ages 12 and older have a substance problem.
