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.

“I thought it was a good facility, but it needed greater family involvement,” an anonymous loved one wrote.

  • Strengths: 50/50 ex addict employee to book recovery teacher. pretty good placemnt caring councelors. Weaknesses: dirty to many patients not enough effort. I have been to several rehabs in the last 10-15 yrs. i have been clean and sober for 6 yrs now. This facility had a councelor who i really related to and thats why i chose this place to list. I think what it really comes down to in recovery is wanting to be clean and getting into a place where you can relate to the couneling staff. i think those jobs should be only for ex-addicts because people who are book educated on addiction do not understand. just witnessing it and reading stats is not enough. Dont get me wrong some are very compassionate which is awesome but unless you know our suffering 1st hand i dont think you could ever actually understand what we are going through.

  • This place was terrible. The food was disgusting and they do not treat you well here at all. I got sectioned to this dump and was struggling to sleep evernight. They make you get up at 6am every day and it doesn't matter if youve slept or not they make you. Truly the WORST rehab center I have EVER experienced. The staff are all ex addicts who treat you like crud and a criminal. They also push religion on you while your in there and make you read the bible. Not everyone believes in that bull so I was pretty pissed. Short and sweet, if you want to be miserable and get treated like a criminal and crud go here. If not, go ANY WHERE ELSE !
    Watch out when your insur runs out. You will be told to pay in cash and they will shut u off if you don't pay. Becareful because they don't care if your sick, having problems ect...

  • They do more to help you if you have been there before. They need a longer length of stay. Their under 18yr old program is excellent. They also have a facility for Section 35.

  • They offer a family info night once your loved one has entered and allow you to leave messages for them. A program longer than a week or two is truly needed to get in the correct mind set to begin recovery. This is a 30 program with an option of transitional aftercare support.

  • Was a good experience. Very knowledgable staff. And down to earth. They all know how it is being an addict and understand the trials and tribulations.. Along with the problems and how hard it is to get clean and most/more importantly stay clean.

    Our son was sectioned to this facility and was let out after 2 weeks. It was a locked facility and was under the impression that if a person was sectioned they had to at least get treatment for 30 days
