For Referrers

We will treat your patient with the care and respect they deserve. When you refer to Hudson, have confidence in our team, our process and our services.

Withdrawal management

Upon admission to Hudson Behavioral Health, all patients meet with our physician and nursing staff to undergo a comprehensive medical evaluation to determine if withdrawal management services are necessary. Also known as detoxification, withdrawal management is the process of using medications to stabilize patients and address the physical withdrawal syndrome that is not only uncomfortable, but also potentially dangerous.

Withdrawal Management is a necessary first step for many patients. Because we individualize the treatment process to meet each person’s needs, patients will be closely monitored by medical staff during the period of withdrawal management. Current withdrawal management protocols are so effective at relieving physical withdrawal that most patients are able to engage in counseling and participate in the community during these first crucial days.

Residential Treatment

Levels 3.5 & 3.7

We offer medium and high-intensity residential treatment for drug and alcohol addiction at our peaceful and secluded campus in Salisbury, Maryland. This setting is appropriate for patients with co-occurring disorders that are stable and manageable outside of an acute care facility. Withdrawal Management services are often coupled with your residential treatment.

All patients that stay on our campus receive a comprehensive psycho-social and physical assessment, as well as psychiatric services when necessary. Patients participate in scheduled group therapy sessions daily, peer support and alternative therapy groups, and individual counseling sessions at least once a week.  Family sessions are also encouraged when appropriate.

Residential Treatment

Level 3.1

Our low-intensity residential programs offer a structured environment to promote recovery and prepare patients for an independent and sober lifestyle. Each house is staffed with a live-in House Manager to provide additional oversight and support. The emphasis of community within these programs facilitates social bonding and cohesion, reinforces recovery concepts and norms, and introduces patients to the larger local recovery community.

Your clinical treatment will continue during your stay in our Residential 3.1 programs with the treatment intensity determined by your needs. Typically, there are 10+ hours of clinical interaction provided in-house per week. Treatment is focused on improving a person's readiness to change, level of functioning, and coping skills. The treatment program includes individual and group therapy with a licensed counselor, as well as job readiness assistance and other introductory life skills work with a dedicated Case Manager and Peer Recovery Specialist.

RECOVERY HOUSING

We offer recovery housing in Delaware for individuals who require a more structured environment in the early stages of recovery.  Residents are required to obtain employment, attend 12-step meetings and enroll in and complete an outpatient treatment program. During your stay in one of our recovery houses, you are expected to contribute to the daily operations of the house and participate in all house activities.

Residents in our Delaware Recovery Houses receive case management services and are offered life skills groups weekly. Our Recovery Housing options are available to patients who discharge from our Residential Programs, but individuals can also self-refer or be referred in by other community organizations.

*Our recovery houses are partially funded by Delaware's Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health
