Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment can be a “next step” after residential rehab. It can also be an effective treatment method for people who have a sober living environment and support at home.

Some outpatient programs can serve people who continue to work while attending treatment. Outpatient programs meet two to three days a week (or more) and include counseling, peer group support, and sober-living activities.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) combines evidence-based counseling, behavioral supports, and education with FDA-approved medications.

Studies by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) show that MAT is able to help people with alcohol, opioid, and tobacco use to stop using substances and remain sober. MAT can be used in outpatient and residential settings.

Aftercare And Alumni Services

Substance use disorders are complex and involve your mind and body. You didn’t develop a substance use disorder overnight.

Recovery is lifelong and you can support your health over the long term by participating in aftercare programs and alumni services. Continued evidence-based group and individual counseling, peer groups, and sober-living activities may be available.

Length Of Addiction Treatment

The longer you’re able to attend treatment, the greater your chances of a lasting recovery. Your treatment should be individualized, and it should be designed to meet your needs based on your history of substance use and treatment.

Within this framework, you will find common program lengths:

  • 30-day programs
  • 60-day programs
  • 90-day programs
  • 120-day programs

Connecticut’s drug and alcohol treatment programs accept most private insurance plans. You can also pay for treatment on your own, and payment plans or scholarships may be available.
