Programs

SMG provides a continuum of services for the treatment of substance use and co-occurring disorders

Intensive Outpatient

Square Medical Group offers two IOP’s: a day program on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:00 AM-12:30 PM and an evening program from 5:30-8:30 PM on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. The IOP is also a group program that provides similar opportunities to those listed above in the PHP. IOP participation can also be combined with individual therapy and medication assisted therapy as described above in PHP.
The IOP option is a logical choice for someone who wants to strengthen their recovery, avoid a relapse or is discharging from an inpatient program and cannot make the time commitment of a PHP. The evening program is a useful alternative for people with day-time commitments such as a job, child care or school.

Partial Hospitalization (PHP)

Our most intensive level of service is the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP).  Woburn PHP offers a series of groups, Monday through Friday, five hours each day. When combined with individual therapy from a member of our clinical staff and medication assisted therapy from one of our psychiatrists or nurse practitioners, it provides the most comprehensive treatment program available outside a hospital setting. Groups include: relapse prevention, anxiety and depression symptom management, trauma recovery, healthy relationships and yoga and meditation. This option is often the next step for someone discharging from an inpatient stay or for someone who is struggling with their recovery and wants to intervene before they experience a full relapse.

Day Treatment

Our most intensive level of service is the Day Treatment Program (DTP).  Woburn Day Treatment program offers a series of groups, Monday through Friday, five hours each day. When combined with individual therapy from a member of our clinical staff and medication assisted therapy from one of our psychiatrists or nurse practitioners, it provides the most comprehensive treatment program available outside a hospital setting. Groups include: relapse prevention, anxiety and depression symptom management, trauma recovery, anger management, DBT basics, healthy relationships and yoga and meditation.
This option is often the next step for someone discharging from an inpatient stay, or for someone who wants to strengthen their recovery.

The “River House” program is an intensive 90-day program for individuals with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. The program is located in a restored Victorian home situated on the Charles River within walking distance of downtown Waltham.
