Addiction Treatment In Derby, CT
Establishing recovery can be a long process with many milestones along the way.
A treatment plan might include:
- checking into a detox center
- checking into inpatient treatment
- outpatient treatment
- alumni services
Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs
Detoxifying means purging the substances from your symptoms. However, advanced substance use disorder may make the detox process dangerous.
Conditions like delirium tremens and opioid withdrawal can be uncomfortable or even life-threatening. Check into a detox center and have the process monitored and made more comfortable by professionals. Your body is powerful, capable of cleansing most toxins.
Inpatient Addiction Treatment
Residential or inpatient treatment involves checking into a facility where addiction-care professionals can monitor and offer 24/7 support, alongside other persons suffering from addiction on the same journey to recovery.

Intensive individual and group therapy modalities equip you with the tools you need to stay sober once you transition out of inpatient treatment and back to your daily life.
Outpatient programs afford you the opportunity to learn recovery strategies and undergo behavioral therapy while living at home or at in “sober living” arrangements alongside other people in recovery from addiction.
Outpatient treatment is only an option if a living environment can be established that is conducive to recovery. Patients commute to the treatment facility to undergo therapeutic programs, often every bit as intensive as inpatient treatment.
Certain opioid-blocker medications like buprenorphine, methadone, and naltrexone can be enormously effective in helping persons suffering from addiction curb cravings for opioids like heroin, fentanyl, and oxycodone.
Certain medications can also curb cravings for alcohol. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) also includes counseling, behavioral therapy, and peer support groups.
Aftercare And Alumni Services
In some ways, the real work of recovery begins after the treatment program, not during it. Out in the world, temptations, triggers, and toxic environments or relationships can threaten your recovery.
Effective treatment programs usually include a robust aftercare program, including sober living arrangements, group meetings, therapy sessions, and 12-step programs.
Length Of Addiction Treatment
It’s hard to know exactly how long each treatment program can take. Every recovery is different, and the program may be subject to adjustments along the way.
As a general rule, expect inpatient treatment to last between a few weeks to a few months, but programs can extend to a year or longer. Outpatient treatment programs similarly range from a few months to a few years. Aftercare and alumni services are usually lifelong.
How To Pay For Treatment
The costs of lengthy addiction treatment programs can add up, but health insurance or Medicaid may pick up all or some of it. Make sure to contact your provider or state plan administrator.
Foundations, charities, and governmental programs also exist to fight addiction and may have grants available. Finally, crowdfunding platforms like GoFundMe have made a big difference in alleviating bills related to addiction recovery.
