Drug and Alcohol Treatment

Right Turn provides a broad range of evidence-based treatment programs for individuals and families suffering from substance use disorders. Our guiding principles of creative expression and integration into the community help our clients and their families rebuild their lives.


Right Turn’s innovative approach, combining intensive, evidence-based treatment with community integration and creative expression has helped many clients man¬age and overcome their addictions.


Anyone with a desire for recovery from substance dependence, the exploration of artistic expression and the support of a creative and caring community will feel welcome here.


Located in Watertown, Massachusetts, Right Turn’s Intensive Outpatient, Partial Hospitalization and Extended Care programs, offer a unique and caring environment, that includes Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), Outpatient Assessment and Counseling and Intervention services. Our qualified and compassion¬ate staff of professionals meets individuals wherever they are in their recovery process. We provide personalized guidance, support and structure to assist individuals and their families in developing and utilizing tools that will allow them to create, manage, and sustain their recovery; and to grow and thrive.


What is Unique About Right Turn: Right Turn is a nonprofit treatment program, combining the arts, and art and music therapies, integrated into a full continuum of substance use and behavioral health treatment. Right Turn provides treatment and a true community – a creative community - for people struggling with substance use disorder. Right Turn’s approach is individual in that each person’s needs are assessed and an individual treatment plan is developed and continually re-evaluated and adjusted to recognize both emerging needs and progress. Right Turn is committed to long term treatment and recovery. Right Turn provides treatment and support for the whole family, as addiction is not limited in cause or impact to individuals. Families, friends, communities and society are all involved and impacted.


We Treat the Whole Family

We understand that substance use and other disorders can cause stress, confusion, and anxiety for family members. To address these issues, our family specialists offer an array of services designed to support family members. These include education about addiction and its impact on the mental and physical health of the family. Our programs impart family coping skills and strategies through bi-weekly family support groups, monthly family workshops, and family sessions with a licensed therapist.


We Promote Creativity

Right Turn’s approach is an exciting and innovative platform combining the arts, and art and music therapies, integrated into a full continuum of substance use and behavioral health treatment. The arts provide emotional as well as creative outlets for clients, and help fulfill Right Turn’s commitment to treating the whole person -  mind and body - heart and soul.


Members of our recovery community also have the opportunity to perform at our weekly Right Turn Live Sober Café – or to just enjoy the music.
