We focus on treating adults with substance use disorders, with or without co-occurring psychiatric conditions. The program is best suited to those who need a safe and supportive treatment atmosphere but do not require around the clock care.
Family involvement is strongly recommended. With permission of the patient, family members can be involved in assessment, treatment, and aftercare planning.
Except during treatment, smoking is allowed in designated outdoor areas. No smoking is allowed inside any of our buildings.
Except during groups, cell phones are permitted, with some guidelines to prevent disruption of the program and other patients and to protect privacy.
The treatment team works closely with the individual as well as with family, significant friends, and outside providers to develop a personalized aftercare plan. Recommendations by staff are made based upon clinical needs, progress made during treatment, and long-term treatment goals.
All requests for medical records should be directed to McLean's Health Information Management Department.
To complement our programs’ services and encourage individuals’ initiatives in their own treatment course, many self-help groups are hosted by McLean.
McLean is dedicated to maintaining high-quality and effective patient care. To ensure that those standards remain at the highest level, we utilize a number of feedback instruments and quality indicators. Among these tools are the Perceptions of Care survey which monitors patient satisfaction and BASIS-24™, a psychiatric outcomes measurement tool created at McLean and widely used in the US and around the world, which delivers feedback on the patient care experience.
