Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs

When you detox from drugs and/or alcohol, you can experience withdrawal. Withdrawal symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, chills, and other flu-like symptoms.

They can also include severe cravings and feelings of anxiety and sudden depression. Detox programs help you to cope with these symptoms safely. Withdrawal can come with serious health risks, so it’s important to seek medically-supervised residential or outpatient detox services.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment

Residential rehab and inpatient drug and alcohol treatment programs can specialize in treating different types of substance use disorders. They offer drug and alcohol-free environments and safe, supportive treatment 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.

Look for residential rehabs that offer evidence-based therapy, including CBT and DBT. Find a residential rehab program that offers a holistic approach to help you build a strong recovery.

Outpatient Treatment

The majority of outpatient programs last between 10 and 16 weeks. Outpatient treatment will combine group and individual counseling and peer group support. Many outpatient programs include education and help to modify your behavior, focusing on coping and sober life skills.

Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) usually meet at least three days a week for at least three-hour sessions. Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) often meet daily.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Using FDA-approved medications including buprenorphine, naltrexone, and methadone, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) can help people recover from opioid use disorders.

MAT treatment can last for several months, up to a year or longer. MAT also uses evidence-based group and individual counseling along with sober living activities and behavioral education.

Aftercare And Alumni Services

Living and working drug and alcohol-free is a lifetime effort. You can support and strengthen your recovery with aftercare and alumni programs. Find a combination of counseling, peer group support, and sober-living activities that can help you to stay sober after you finish rehab.

Length Of Addiction Treatment

The longer you can attend treatment, the better your chances of achieving long-term recovery.

Some common program lengths include:

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

How To Pay For Treatment

Connecticut offers some funding for local programs to offer free or very low-cost drug and alcohol treatment. The majority of rehabs in Connecticut accept most private insurance plans.

In addition, many rehabs also accept Medicaid, Medicare, and Tricare (military and government insurance). Drug and alcohol programs may also offer payment plans for private direct payment.
