Baystate Recovery Center to Open its Doors in August

Baystate Recovery Center was founded by two partners in drug and alcohol addiction recovery, John Checchi and Michael Wilson. Michael says, “we’ve been in the industry for a while, we know what we’re doing. We want to bring that experience to the center and give everyone who walks in the sense that they’re in the right hands to help them find their way to sobriety.”

Baystate Recovery Center will be located at 950 Cummings Center Suite 106-X Beverly, MA. The center will offer a variety of therapies, including:

  • Relapse Prevention
  • Mindfulness Training
  • Stress Management
  • Model of Addiction
  • Recovery Skills
  • Group Support
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Both John and Michael have been sober for a combined 21 years. The inspiration for the center came from their own experiences getting and staying sober. John explains,  “I went to a number of treatment centers and I saw what worked and what didn’t. From both of our personal experiences, we’ve learned how we can truly impact those entering recovery.”

The center will offer 3 treatment levels, for both men and women. The treatment levels are:

  • PHP, Day Treatment/ Partial Hospitalization
  • IOP, Intensive Outpatient
  • OP, Outpatient Treatment

Each treatment level provides individual therapy, support and evidence-based care, to arm clients with the skills to overcome substance dependency.

Baystate Recovery Center will practice The 12 Step philosophy integrated with clinical modalities. Both John and Michael found The 12 Steps integral to their recovery process. As a team, their overarching goal is to provide compassionate and customized care. Michael explains, “each person and each story is different. Everyone deserves personalized care. There is no one size fits all approach to recovery.”

When asked what makes Baystate Recovery Center different, John explains, “there is a need for treatment centers in this community. Michael and I both want to provide more access to patients and be more involved with their treatment.  We know what it’s like taking that first step…it’s scary. We want to make that process easier and we want to make it last.”
