COVID-19 Safety Precautions
Your safety is our top priority
We know that you want to feel confident that you are entering a safe environment when you come to our offices for care. That’s why we have made some changes in response to COVID-19.
We are asking our patients not to postpone their medical care. In addition to in-person visits, we offer telephone and video telemedicine visits. These visits are private and secure.
A Comprehensive Substance Use Recovery Program
Ending dependence on alcohol, opioids, or other drugs is a difficult challenge, but you don’t have to take it on alone.
The Lifespan Recovery Center helps people who struggle with substance use, sometimes in combination with a mental health condition. Our program offers rapid access to treatment and support throughout the recovery process for you or a loved one who is trying to overcome a substance use disorder.
Our center offers a recovery-oriented program to address the medical and psychosocial needs of individuals who have substance use disorders, sometimes accompanied by conditions such as depression or anxiety.
Our team works collaboratively to evaluate patients and provide the comprehensive, evidence-based treatment they need.
If you think you or a family member have a dependence on opioids, cocaine, stimulants, or drugs such as alcohol and marijuana, our experts can provide an evaluation.
Patients entering our program might be new to treatment, may have recently completed inpatient detoxification, or want to transition from a methadone program.
We prescribe medications such as Suboxone (buprenorphine and naloxone) in combination with psychotherapies and the supports needed to succeed in recovery.
The center is a program of Rhode Island Hospital, part of the Lifespan health system, so our patients have seamless, timely access to specialized medical, behavioral, and mental health services.
The Recovery Process
Recovery from a substance use disorder involves multiple stages and requires a patient to commit fully to the process.
Successful recovery means not only ending substance use, but achieving physical, psychological, and social well-being. The support of family and friends contributes greatly to your recovery effort.
Once your treatment is finished, you shouldn’t expect life to “go back to normal.” Successful recovery takes commitment every day, while you are in treatment and into your sober future.
We offer a range of treatments and supports that assist our patients in achieving a full recovery.
Please support the David C. Lewis, MD Fellowship in Addiction Medicine that trains physicians in the treatment of substance use disorders, helping to address the great need for physicians trained in addiction medicine.
