About the Facility

Chronic Medical Conditions & Physical Challenges

AdCare Rhode Island is equipped to care for medically compromised patients, although patients with chronic or acute medical conditions are accepted on a case-by case basis. Patients with conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, seizures, or other managed conditions are typically accepted. Every unit has ADA-compliant, handicap rooms available and everything is wheelchair-accessible. If the patient is not ambulatory they need to have their own device to get around, although the facility does have wheelchairs available for emergencies.

Facility Staff

Our highly trained and knowledgeable multidisciplinary team includes medical doctors, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, psychologists, therapists, treatment assistants, and a doctor of acupuncture. Patients meet with a clinician within the first 24 hours of admission. Therapists are all either working towards licensure or already licensed by the state, including licensed chemical dependency professionals (LCDPs), licensed mental health counselors (LMHCs), and masters-level licensed clinical social workers. All of our staff are trained and able to deliver addiction treatment. Some of their specialties include trauma-informed therapy, motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, and AcuDetox.

We are in the process of training and growing a competent LGBTQI program. We are also working toward increasing the diversity of staff as we expand and develop.
