Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs

Dependency is different from addiction. Dependency comes from your body’s physical need for drugs and/or alcohol. When you stop using drugs and alcohol and are dependent, you’ll experience withdrawal symptoms.

Detox programs help you overcome physical and emotional withdrawal symptoms safely. Detox usually takes place in a residential setting, but can also take place as an outpatient program.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment

Residential or inpatient treatment provides a supportive, safe environment free of substances. Combining evidence-based therapy with experiences that can build sober-living skills, residential rehab programs can help you establish healthy habits for a lasting recovery.

Residential rehab programs can offer gender-specific treatment. They can also provide experiences that can build sober-living skills and confidence. This can include wilderness and adventure therapy, as well as art, music, and yoga therapies.

Outpatient Treatment

Based in the community, outpatient programs can be more or less intensive. They often combine evidence-based therapy with education and behavioral modification.

Programs that meet more frequently for longer periods are intensive outpatient programs (IOPs). The most frequent and intense programs are partial hospitalization programs (PHPs). You can continue treatment after residential care in an outpatient program.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

You may have heard about medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorders. MAT can also help people to recover from alcohol and tobacco addiction.

MAT doesn’t just offer FDA-approved medications like naltrexone and buprenorphine. It combines medication with evidence-based group and individual therapy. MAT can be used as part of a residential treatment program or it can take place as a stand-alone outpatient option.

Aftercare And Alumni Services

If you’ve completed rehab, you probably have a good idea of the support system you’ll need to maintain your sobriety. Alumni and aftercare programs are available to help you cope with triggers and continue to live a sober, healthy life.

They can include individual and group counseling, along with 12-step peer support groups.

Length Of Addiction Treatment

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) confirms that detox alone doesn’t contribute to recovery. Longer treatment programs produce more lasting sobriety.

Within this framework, some common program lengths are:

  • 30-day treatment
  • 60-day treatment
  • 90-day treatment
  • 120-day treatment

Longer treatment programs can be referred to as sober-living programs or transitional programs.

How To Pay For Treatment

Connecticut’s drug and alcohol rehab programs accept private health care insurance payments. They may also offer discounts and payment plans for private pay.

Connecticut’s Medicaid program covers the majority of drug and alcohol rehab services. Most rehab centers also accept military and government insurance (Tricare) and Medicare and supplemental Medicare plans.
