AdCare Rhode Island - Portsmouth

11 King Charles Drive, A2, Portsmouth, Rhode Island, 02871
Clinical Services of Rhode Island (CSRI), which is owned and operated by American Addiction Centers (AAC), provides outpatient rehab and addiction treatment services that embody a “big-picture” approach to substance abuse treatment, addressing the client’s lifestyle and environmental factors contributing to the addiction. Partnerships are created with each client’s family, loved ones, and community resources during the course of treatment to lay the groundwork for aftercare. Using individualized treatment plans and research-based therapy, CSRI doesn’t just focus on the substance abuse, but uses the client’s strengths to concentrate on a sober future, and build a self-directed life.

  • Family Program

    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
  • Medical Detoxification

    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal. CSRI offers outpatient detoxification from opioids only.
  • Individualized Treatment

    Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
  • Aftercare Support

    Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a treatment program. CSRI staff supports and facilitates building community connections including 12 step involvement, vocational counseling, and psychiatric services.

Rehabs 360 Guide


Clinical Services of Rhode Island of Portsmouth, recently consolidated into AdCare Rhode Island, offers outpatient-based treatment services for adults struggling with addiction, and it is among the 30 (62.5 percent) facilities in the state to offer specialized programming to treat co-occurring mental health conditions.

Part of American Addiction Centers' nationwide network of treatment facilities, AdCare Rhode Island of Portsmouth is one of the state's 20 (41.7 percent) facilities to offer an intensive outpatient program (IOP) and one of 15 (31.3 percent) to provide outpatient-based detox services. The facility also offers general outpatient programming and group therapy.


Upon intake, clients participate in an initial assessment and urine screening to assist clinicians in developing an individualized treatment program. The facility does not conduct physical examinations, psychiatric assessments, or blood work services.

During outpatient programs, clients are introduced to the philosophies and practices of the 12-step model of recovery and are expected to perform accompanying “step-work.” Utilizing evidence-based treatment modalities, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), clinicians also facilitate counseling sessions in group, individual, and family settings.

In addition, clients participate in classroom discussions with others in recovery, helping clients to learn techniques for controlling impulses, avoiding triggers, and other relapse prevention strategies. Lasting three hours, IOP sessions are held in the morning and evening to accommodate client schedules.

Depending on the client’s needs, referrals for medication management and psychiatric care may be incorporated into care plans. AdCare Rhode Island also encourages family participation during the treatment process, and loved ones are invited to a monthly educational support group.

To support ongoing recovery, AdCare Rhode Island also hosts monthly “Meet and Greets” for alumni of any network facility and organizes quarterly alumni outings, such as sporting events, concerts, and dinners.

Strengths: Flexibility with appointments and very friendly. My experience has been very comfortable and easy. The only down fault in my opinion is the desks that the counselors have to work at are very small and do not look very professional.

I'm sorry the counselor desk space seemed inadequate to you. A large desk can sometimes be a barrier to a positive exchange between counselor and client.
