We can help.

At Hudson, we offer a full continuum of residential care to meet your needs. You will receive an individualized treatment plan based on your situational and life circumstances, and we will work side by side with you as you work toward your goals. We focus on providing top quality care so that you can focus on healing.

We offer a variable length of stay program that uses a multi-disciplinary, evidence-informed approach to educate patients about the Disease of Addiction and the tools necessary to establish and maintain sobriety

Residential treatment

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.


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

Activities and resources

Peer Support Services

Our team believes in the benefits of Peer Support Specialists – individuals in recovery who mentor patients on our treatment campus and in halfway housing.  We recognize that utilizing a person’s lived experience with substance use disorders, as well as recovery, is one of the best tools we can offer to help our patients through their treatment journey.

Peer Recovery Specialists receive extensive training and are certified or working towards certification by the Maryland Addiction and Behavioral Health Professional Certification Board. Peer Recovery Specialists relate with patients in ways that clinical staff cannot and use their own experiences to coach and guide patients toward a sober life. 

Recovery Support Groups

We believe that participation in a recovery support group is one of the determining factors in how successful a person is in their recovery journey.  We also believe that there is no one size fits all program to meet the individual needs of our patients.  Therefore, Hudson Behavioral Health provides a variety of recovery support groups on our treatment campus, including Narcotics Anonymous, Alcoholics Anonymous, and Celebrate Recovery. 

Mental Health

We believe that you must treat substance-use and mental health disorders simultaneously. Throughout treatment, you will have access to our licensed mental health therapists who will assess your needs and identify if a referral to our mental health providers is necessary. As you move through our continuum into our 3.1 Residential Programs, your treatment will continue with dedicated therapists who will work with you throughout your journey.  Our in-house therapists offer ease of access with no need to schedule appointments or be placed on a waitlist to address your mental health concerns. 

Narcan Training

Narcan, the overdose reversal drug, is available to all patients admitted at Hudson Health Services. Upon admission, all patients are offered training to recognize the signs and symptoms of an opioid overdose and are offered the option to receive a Narcan kit upon discharge.

Drumming off Drugs

One of the most unique alternative therapies that Hudson Behavioral Health has implemented is the Drumming Off Drugs Program from Root Drumming Systems.  A therapeutic group activity led by certified staff, drumming has been clinically proven to reduce anxiety and depression, boost self-esteem, improve ability to follow instruction and build group cohesiveness.  Coupled with rhythmic exercises, group leaders use recovery analogies to relate what is learned during drumming sessions to everyday life.

Yoga for Recovery

Yoga is well known for its ability to reduce stress and promote relaxation.  It also helps to alleviate anxiety and depression, as well as reduce the effects of trauma. Hudson partners with Yoga for Recovery to bring a holistic trauma-informed yoga approach to the clients. Our yoga classes focus on releasing tension, breathing intentionally, and moving gently in order to promote the recovery process.
