Addiction Treatment In Middletown, Connecticut

Middletown has resources for veteran’s addiction treatment, detox services, and inpatient drug and alcohol rehab. Additional outpatient and medication-assisted treatment (MAT) programs are available elsewhere in Middlesex County.

You may access other specialized treatment and rehab programs elsewhere in Connecticut or other neighboring states like Massachusetts.

Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs

The majority of drug and alcohol detox programs take place in a residential setting and include medical supervision. They can last between three days up to a week and sometimes longer.

Withdrawal symptoms are uncomfortable and unpleasant. They can also be potentially risky. Detox programs help people to overcome physical withdrawal symptoms and prepare for rehab programs and services.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment

Residential or inpatient drug and alcohol treatment takes place in facilities which are free of drugs and alcohol and offer 24-hour support.

Evidence-based counseling including DBT and CBT is included in many residential treatment programs. You can locate residential rehabs that specialize in specific substance use treatment, like opioid use disorders, or that serve specific populations including men, women, adolescents, veterans, and older adults.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment lasts between 10 and 16 weeks, but it can be shorter or longer when it’s incorporated as part of a comprehensive individual treatment plan. Outpatient treatment can be more or less intensive, depending on meeting frequency and session length.

Programs meeting more than three days a week are often called intensive outpatient programs (IOPs). Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) offer the most intense outpatient treatment.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Using a combination of evidence-based counseling and education along with FDA-approved medications, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) can help people to recover from alcohol, opioid, and tobacco use disorders.

MAT programs can be included as part of residential rehab programs or offered in the community on an outpatient basis. You can find MAT programs that last six months or longer.

Aftercare And Alumni Services

Your healing process from drug and alcohol use disorders is lifelong. An aftercare or alumni program can help you to continue to heal.

You can choose a program offering counseling and peer group support. You can also participate in ongoing education and sober living activities as part of your continued recovery and sobriety.

Length Of Addiction Treatment

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) confirms that residential drug and alcohol treatment can help you to establish a strong and lasting recovery.

You will find common treatment program lengths including:

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

How To Pay For Treatment

Nearly all drug and alcohol rehab programs in Connecticut accept private insurance plans. Connecticut rehab programs also accept government insurance (Tricare), and many programs will also accept Medicare and Medicare supplements.

The state of Connecticut and Connecticut Medicaid will pay for the majority of drug and alcohol treatment. You may be able to receive help from friends and family to pay for treatment.
