ABOUT HIGH POINT TREATMENT CENTER – BROCKTON MEADOWBROOK CAMPUS
The Brockton Meadowbrook Campus, owned and operated by High Point Treatment Center, is home to the Men’s Addiction Treatment Center (MATC), a “Section 35” treatment facility with detox and intervention programs for men who have been court-ordered into residential treatment.
Also on campus is the Brockton Addiction Treatment Center (BATC), offering outpatient services for the community, and the CASTLE (Clean and Sober Teens Living Empowered), a short-term stabilization program for teens affected by substance abuse.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The Men’s Addiction Treatment Center (MATC) has three parts to it: a detox unit, clinical stabilization services, and transitional support services. With programming based on the 12-Steps, the treatment curriculum sees daily in-house support meetings, individual and group therapy, family education and support, aftercare planning, and alumni support. Men who receive clinical stabilization services reside at Serenity Inn and take part in psychoeducational groups, lectures, and opioid overdose prevention workshops if appropriate.
MATC’s transitional support services program, also known as Beginnings, provides short-term residency, stabilization after detox, and case management. Designed to help men bridge the gap between detox and step-down care, the program provides education on nutrition, relapse prevention, domestic violence, HIV awareness, and more.
Services of the Brockton Addiction Treatment Center (BATC) are available for both men and women. Along with detoxification, BATC provides outpatient care, including psychiatry services, mental health and substance abuse therapy, driver alcohol education, family treatment, and early recovery groups.
The CASTLE program for teens consists of a short-term dual diagnosis program and outpatient services. Treatment follows the “IMAX” approach, which focuses on balancing out the four crucial “domains” in a teen’s life: home, social environment, biology, and self-esteem. The short-term program incorporates detox, psychiatry and pediatric medicine, medication management, psychoeducational groups, 12-step meetings, and private therapy.
According to its website, the Brockton Meadowbrook Campus is staffed with physicians, psychiatrists, registered nurses, registered practical nurses, licensed mental health and substance abuse clinicians, and licensed social workers.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Men enrolled in MATC reside at Serenity Inn, a nearby shelter with 24-hour supervision, while short-term residents of the CASTLE program are housed in a secured, 24-bed brick building.
