Facility Information

  • Client & Family Support Groups

    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
  • Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

    These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
  • Residential Treatment

    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
  • Individualized Treatment

    Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
  • PRISE: For patients who have relapsed

    PRISE: a Program Designed for Patients Who Have Relapsed The path to recovery is unique to each person struggling with addiction. For some people it takes multiple attempts at recovery, and with each passing attempt they may feel less optimistic about their future. At Recovery Centers of America, we see each attempt at recovery as a sign of commitment and hope. This specialized program uses a therapeutic, evidence-based approach designed to help those for whom recovery has been elusive. PRISE (Promoting Recovery through Intensive Support and Education) focuses patients on their recovery, rather than addiction, and focuses on a bright future
  • General Outpatient Services

    Recovery Centers of America at Westminster offers evidenced-based treatment through medically-monitored outpatient treatment from our outstanding staff at our secure and comfortable facility in Massachusetts.
  • RESCU: For first responders & military

    Our private substance abuse rehabilitation program can help you get mentally and physically healthy again so you can get back to your calling to help others in their time of crisis. At Recovery Centers of America (RCA), we strive to be the preferred residential treatment facility for first responders struggling with addiction. Whether you’re an active or former law enforcement officer, firefighter, correctional officer, EMT/paramedic, or veteran––we can help you manage the ripple effects of substance abuse. We can help advocate on your behalf with your union, department, and employee assistance program if you choose to include them in your treatment.
  • Evolutions: treatment for older adults age 50+

    The Evolutions program at Recovery Centers of America is designed with adults 50+ in mind. Whether you are at a transition point in life involving retirement, your children leaving the home, or your health deteriorating, you are not alone. In Evolutions, you will be with peers 50 years of age and older who are understanding, supportive and focused on making a positive change.
  • Frontline: for medical and behavioral health professionals

    Whether you’re a physician, nurse, therapist, counselor, pharmacist, or any patient-facing medical or behavioral health professional struggling with drugs and alcohol, Recovery Centers of America knows how challenging this struggle can be and we are here to help. That’s why we created the Frontline program, a specialty inpatient addiction treatment program designed exclusively for your unique needs as a medical or behavioral health professional. Throughout every phase of your treatment, we understand the importance of your anonymity and are committed to protecting your privacy.
  • Balance: for co-occurring addiction and mental health disorders

    To treat your addiction and mental health concerns together, Balance employs Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), a therapeutic approach that has proven effective over time in treating dual diagnosis disorders. By treating your substance use disorder and co-occurring mental health disorders together, you can find relief from your mental suffering and embark on the path to recovery from addiction to drugs and alcohol.

I have not been to this facility yet. I am replying to a review by \"angry wife\". You claim you wish the facility made rehab more \"uncomfortable\" because you believe it will make people take it more serious. I can tell you firsthand about a different rehab I went to in Worcester that truly did NOT give a *hit about the patient. THAT is why people typically relapse. On the other hand, I have heard firsthand from a former patient of Westminster Recovery Center that there truly is a difference in the treatment of patients, and having therapy such as yoga and art therapy, a pool, a nice room, makes a person feel respected and cared for, and in my opinion, THAT is a key ingredient missing from many addicts lives, and the reason why Recovery can be so difficult. Being an addict is difficult enough, so it sounds to me like Recovery Centers of America may actually be onto something by offering a few extra amenities along with what sounds like great counselors. I switched my insurance just to be able to go to the facility because my life IS IMPORTANT to me and I DON\'T want want to waste my time, and DO NOT consider it a VACATION.

This facility is beautiful! It is separated with Detox (Co-ed) and Residential (Gender separate) Units. Each bedroom has 2 queen size beds and each side has a television. You only have one roommate. The food is excellent! The chef really takes pride in his work and puts out nutritious great tasting meals. You get "Fresh air breaks" where you can smoke about 8-9 times per day. They offer yoga & art therapy along with primary process groups. You are allowed to use your cell phone once a week, in front of your case manager, for a half hour to check bills, emails and such. I would recommend this facility above any other in Massachusetts.

Patients don’t get treatment they are just dollar signs that management tries to keep them happy so they don’t leaven. This place is just bad all around. All the good reviews are fake. Management demanded all the staff do online reviews because our rating was so low.

The staff was very patient and tolerant. They did everything in their power to get me to stay during my bi-polar episodes, while i was starting my new medication. The staff is very understanding of each individuals medical needs. The best part of RCA is the vast majority of the staff are also recovering addicts so they understand very well the troubles we encounter while becoming sober. We were well fed and the and well monitored by the staff so they could address changes in our behavior almost immediately. Staff the is very experienced in addiction and recovery as well as the medical staff. A comfortable living enviroment. Excelent food. Great activities for coping with addiction. And a very social environment that forces you to be engaged with a large group of people. A few more phones wouldnt hurt. Some people would use the phones without permission and you wouldnt be able to get your daily phone call. Also some of the patients who are court ordered to be in the facility have a toxic/negative attitude and try to ruin recovery for people who truly want to be there.
