Addiction Treatment In Mashantucket, CT
Addiction treatment is not the same for everyone. You can choose from different programs, and people often transition from one type to another as their needs change.
The best program will have a tailored treatment plan just for you and will address the full picture of your addiction, including mental health and personal triggers.
Effective programs include a full range of treatment with:
- individual therapy
- group counseling
- family therapy
- medication-assisted treatment
- other features
Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs
Many people try to stop using an addictive substance on their own, but the withdrawal symptoms can be difficult and sometimes dangerous.
The process is safer and often more effective when you have professionals to provide medical supervision, a sober environment, and medications when needed. You could choose from inpatient and outpatient medically assisted detox programs.
Inpatient Addiction Treatment
After detox, a rehab program can help you work on your cravings and addictive behaviors. An inpatient program is the most comprehensive to treat all of your needs as a full person.

These programs offer a range of therapeutic approaches and amenities under one roof, along with around-the-clock medical supervision and continuous professional and peer support.
Inpatient care is for severe addictions and people who thrive in a supportive environment. Short-term and long-term options are available, although long-term inpatient treatment tends to be more effective. It can take time to undo and change ingrained thoughts and behaviors.
Outpatient treatment is another rehab option that can act as an alternative or next step to inpatient treatment. This type is ideal for people needing flexible treatment, those who have strong support at home, or those who thrive on their own.
You would stay at home and visit the treatment facility for sessions. Intensive outpatient programs provide a similar level of support to inpatient ones, while other outpatient programs simply offer drug education or group counseling.
A medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program is beneficial for many people, especially those with an addiction to opioids or alcohol.
These programs use medication to help with cravings, substance effects, and other symptoms in addition to offering counseling and other behavioral treatments. They combine treatments to provide a comprehensive method of addressing addiction.
Aftercare And Alumni Services
It can be difficult to change ingrained thought patterns and behaviors like those that come with addiction. The process often takes time, and a treatment program might not be long enough.
It can also be difficult to transition to regular life from a supportive program. An aftercare program can help by providing peer support, 12-step groups, and other continued support.
Length Of Addiction Treatment
Longer treatment programs tend to work better than short ones because they help you gradually change your life to a new way of living.
Continued support helps you stick with recovery instead of having relapses. Shorter programs last 30, 60, or 90 days, while longer ones can be 120 days or a year or more.
How To Pay For Treatment
The cost of treatment doesn’t need to be a roadblock to getting care. A health insurance plan will usually cover at least some of the cost of treatment, and it’s important to check the types of programs it covers before you choose a program.
Some people pay out-of-pocket for the full cost of care or for the part insurance does not cover. Or you may find support through grant programs, crowdsourcing, payment plans, or other programs. Also, compare programs and facilities for pricing without losing sight of quality.
