Andrew Gill, MD, Medical Director
William Krauss, LMHC, Program Director

The McLean Ambulatory Treatment Center at Naukeag, a satellite site of McLean Hospital, provides residential and partial hospital care to post-detoxified, chemically dependent adults ages 18 and older. The program and its highly skilled staff offer added expertise in treating individuals whose substance abuse is complicated by psychiatric illness.

Residential Care

Residential treatment is for individuals who require the structure of a 24-hour setting, but not the intensity and security of medical, psychiatric and nursing services offered in an inpatient program. Residential patients may be admitted from the community or following a brief inpatient stay. Patients participate in a structured program of five groups daily and a self-help meeting, seven days per week. Group focus is on stabilization, affect regulation, psychoeducation and relapse prevention.

Partial Hospital Care

Patients within the partial hospital program attend structured group therapy, while spending their evenings at home practicing the skills they have learned during the day. The program operates from 8:30 am to 2 pm seven days a week.

  • Dual diagnosis
  • In-depth individual assessment
