Who benefits most from Ambulatory Treatment Center at Naukeag?

Our residential and partial hospital program focuses on treating individuals with serious substance use conditions who are stable, post detox, have manageable mental health and physical symptoms, who want and agree to come to rehab, and are motivated for treatment.

Is family involved in treatment?

Family involvement is strongly recommended. With permission of the resident, family members can be involved in assessment and in treatment/aftercare planning.

During free time, smoking is allowed in designated outdoor areas only. No smoking is allowed inside any of our buildings.

When are visiting hours?

Visiting hours are 2-4 pm Monday through Saturday and 12-4 pm Sunday.

Are cell phones allowed?

Residents are allowed to hold and use their cell phones, except during therapy (individual and group), with some guidelines to prevent disruption of the program and other residents. Cell phones may be taken away if they interfere with treatment.

Is aftercare planning a part of the program?

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.

Can former residents access their medical records?

All requests for medical records should be directed to McLean's Health Information Management Department.

Are support groups offered during and after treatment?

To complement our programs’ services and encourage individuals’ initiatives in their own treatment course, many self-help groups are hosted by McLean.

Does McLean gather patient feedback?

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.
