The mission of The Counseling Center at Middlesex is to help people with addiction, both through recovery support and with education.

About the Naloxone Seminars at The Counseling Center
This free seminar will provide detailed information about Naloxone, including how and when it can properly be used to reverse an overdose. The seminar will also address the rights and responsibilities of those seeking to utilize Naloxone kits in emergencies. Free Naloxone kits will be available to participants, in accordance with regulations, and guidelines from the sponsors supplying the free kits.
The drug Naloxone (more commonly known as a product called Narcan) can reverse the effects of opiates and opioids (including heroin and many prescription painkillers) almost immediately when administered intravenously (with a needle) or intranasal (with a nasal spray). Emergency responders have carried Naloxone for many years, administering it under physician supervision when called to a scene of an overdose. Poison Control or emergency medical staff would rely on the availability of Naloxone as an emergency measure to counter an overdose, where death from an overdose was likely.

The Counseling Center at Middlesex is an outpatient addiction treatment center for adults and adolescents seeking treatment for addiction, alcoholism, and co-occurring disorders associated with addiction and substance use. The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) combines evidence-based, state of the art treatment with 12 Step principles. The IOP is an intense, focused experience designed to enable sober and productive living.
IOP may be recommended for individuals who do not require medically supervised detoxification, and who live within driving distance of the center, and for individuals who have recently completed residential treatment (rehab) and are in the early stages of recovery.
Eligibility for the IOP is based on a clinical assessment. Treatment is individualized, and full information on program options, costs, and schedules will be available after assessment.
