CharterCARE Opens New Outpatient Integrated Behavioral Health Center

CharterCARE Health Partners has announced the opening of its new  Integrated Behavioral Health Center, an outpatient program designed specifically for people who need a structured support system to achieve early recovery from addiction. The Center is located on the campus of Roger Williams Medical Center in a building adjacent to the hospital at 877 Chalkstone Avenue in Providence.  

The Department of Outpatient Addiction Medicine, currently located on the first floor of the main building at Roger Williams Medical Center, has also moved into this space.  

The new Center is staffed by a multi-disciplinary treatment team including physicians, nurses, and therapists, and will be led by Alex Etienne, M.D., and Vincent Marcaccio, M.D., both of whom are certified Suboxone providers.  The program is directed by Liz Cantor, Ph.D., and will offer same day appointments for  outpatient evaluation/intake for co-occurring disorders and/or co-morbid behavioral health and medical conditions, short and long term counseling, individual counseling, Suboxone treatment from induction phase to maintenance, a Partial Hospital Program (PHP) and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).

“Opiate addiction is a national and local epidemic and, since CharterCARE is a leading provider of behavioral health services, it is a natural extension of our program to create an outpatient center that offers services to this complex population,” said Dr. Liz Cantor, Director. “Additional supports and treatment toward sustaining their recovery are important at this critical stage” She added that CharterCARE is working closely with the state of Rhode Island to become a center of excellence in Suboxone outpatient treatment.
