Gosnold treatment center - expense excludes administrative overhead. Gosnold treatment center provides acute alcohol detoxification services. Gosnold treats addiction as a chronic disease that requires life-long management, and is often complicated by other medical, emotional and situational conditions. We believe that complications are improved by abstinence from other substances; yet, emphasize a harm reduction model of treatment when appropriate to patient condition and preference. The primary care offered is medical detoxification and stabilization. The Gosnold treatment center, located adjacent to falmouth hospital is a 50 bed facility which includes semi-private bedrooms, lounges, a dining area, group therapy rooms and counseling offices. The detoxification program is staffed by physicians, nurses, counselors and recovery aides who provide medical and counseling care to patients undergoing withdrawal of treatment. Treatment begins with a medical assessment and evaluation. A variety of medications are used to reduce the discomfort of withdrawal. We administer buprenorphine (suboxone) for opiate withdrawal treatment. While not presently using methadone as medication assisted treatment, Gosnold is in the process of doing so. The detoxification period stay varies, depending on patient needs. Medical and counseling staff meets regularly to review progress. Patients attend educational sessions, individual and group counseling and 12 step groups. Counselors help patients to understand their disease, its symptoms and progression and treatment options available in continuing care.

Gosnold was the chosen vendor for barnstable, dukes and nantucket county in 2022. Referrals to bh-ji are predominantly received from our local houses of correction, the department of corrections across the state (for individuals releasing to cape cod), probation and parole departments, and our inpatient facilities. The goal of this program is to pair a trained navigator with people who are leaving or have recently left jail or prison, people on parole or probation, or those that are awaiting trial that suffer from substance use disorder and/or mental health diagnoses. The bh-ji navigators help the enrollees find behavioral health services and social support in the community, including setting up inpatient or outpatient services, housing searches and applications, department of transitional assistance applications, coordinating registry of motor vehicle appointments and hearings, transportation, employment, insurance, ids., food insecurity support, communication devices and attending court appearances. When this population is connected to the right health care and community services it can improve health, reduce overdoses, and hopefully prevent re-incarceration, hospital stays and admission to inpatient detoxification facilities.
