For over forty years, AdCare Hospital has helped individuals and families struggling with alcohol and drug use… one life at a time. The AdCare name represents innovation, quality and cost efficiency in alcohol and drug treatment. AdCare’s integrated system of care offers a nationally recognized hospital facility in Worcester, MA an inpatient treatment center in North Kingstown, RI and a network of outpatient offices conveniently located throughout Massachusetts and RI.
