About AdCare Rhode Island, Kingstown
AdCare Rhode Island at Kingstown, which is owned and operated by American Addiction Centers (AAC), provides outpatient rehab and addiction treatment services that embody a “big-picture” approach to substance abuse treatment, addressing the client’s lifestyle and environmental factors contributing to the addiction. Partnerships are created with each client’s family, loved ones, and community resources during the course of treatment to lay the groundwork for aftercare. Using individualized treatment plans and research-based therapy, CSRI doesn’t just focus on the substance abuse, but uses the client’s strengths to concentrate on a sober future, and build a self-directed life.
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal. CSRI offers outpatient detoxification from opioids only.
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.
Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a treatment program. CSRI staff supports and facilitates building community connections including 12 step involvement, vocational counseling, and psychiatric services.

doThese people are snakes and did not do a good job helping me.
KarenThey care about the people they treat. They don't treat people like a number. They go above and beyond, they don't just go thru the motions. It's a small building they're in. Could use a larger space. Not open for IOP Friday's thru Sundays. They employ great therapists and councilors.
FrankVery knowledgeable staff. They really care about the patient and family members. Strongly believe my son is alive today, because of the treatment and counseling he received at Clinical Services of RI.
LauraCommunication CSRI is friendly, educated and offers support to the addict as well as the family.
PamelaStaff is highly educated and knowledgeable, Communication skills are excellent. Excellent understanding of patients' needs The best inpatient rehab I have experienced to date
Anonymousworse place ever said the right things to get you there and then sent my daughter home after 3 days to fall on her face from no care!!! this place should be shut down today do not know how there still open they only care about MONEY NOT PEOPLE.
SandraI am very disgusted with this program ! I feel...they did not treat my family member appropriately... during an initial intake process ! While the counselor should be trying to obtain and gain trust, he disclosed to his supervisor private information that was not harmful to himself or others ! So the supervisor decides that this family member needs more intense treatment without discussing this with the patient/ client. If the supervisor was given the correct information, I would hope that she would not make such an innapropriate decision! This was an initial intake and the client/ patient was given an ultimatum that if he did not come 4 days a week at 3 hours a session of group therapy than they will refuse the patient treatment ! Meanwhile this patient goes to school full time ! How is he supposed to go to school and go to this treatment facility 4 times a week and at 3 hours each session ! This is a recipe for failure!! Basically forcing him to quit school!! If you ask me, they are just trying to get more money for there programs !! This person made a few mistakes in college as we all did !! I am very angry and upset with how they run this facility and do not encourage this program to anyone !!
