Mercy’s Alcohol and Drug Dependency Program (ADDP) offers confidential assistance to adults suffering with alcohol or drug addiction. Our innovative program takes a comprehensive approach to recovery and looks for potential underlying issues, such as medical or psychiatric problems, that may impact the patient’s recovery. The hospital provides a coordinated and graduated approach to treatment. Depending on an individual’s circumstances and needs, a patient may be referred to inpatient care or outpatient treatment and
groups. All programs are offered in one convenient location and are provided under the care and supervision of trained specialists. At Mercy, our treatment goal goes beyond ending a patient’s drug or alcohol use. We help patients plan for long-term recovery by focusing on relapse prevention and outside support-system development. Here, patients work with a diverse treatment team that includes physicians, highly trained and certified counselors, licensed clinical social workers and registered nurses.
