Heywood’s Quabbin Retreat Project in Petersham. The next phase of the project will be up and running in the fall.
The first phase of Heywood Healthcare’s new dual diagnosis unit in Petersham is now up and running, and outpatient services are now available for adults with both mental health and substance abuse disorders, the system announced Monday.
The outpatient program, called the Dana Day Treatment Center at the Quabbin Retreat Project, is run by master’s-level educated therapists and offers care coordination and family support in small group settings. Local transportation is available for patients who need it, and most insurance plans are accepted.
When it’s fully operational, the Quabbin Retreat will include an adult residential substance abuse center, a residential adolescent substance abuse treatment program, and an inpatient detox center. Services will include group-based supportive therapies, life skills training, family education and support, and vocational assistance.
The adult residential substance abuse treatment center is scheduled to be completed in the fall.
