Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs
Detox is important for your physical and mental health when you stop using drugs and alcohol. Physical dependency leads to withdrawal symptoms which are uncomfortable and unpleasant at best.
Withdrawal can be dangerous, which is why detox programs should include medical supervision. Most detox programs last three to five days, and are primarily residential, although you can also enroll in outpatient detox services.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment
Inpatient treatment can have a medical or a social and behavioral emphasis. While you’re in residential treatment, you can focus on your sobriety and improving your overall well-being. Residential treatment can start with 30-day programs and extend to six months or longer.
Residential treatment offers 24 hours of care and support. Rehab programs can also be gender specific or serve age groups or specific substances. Residential rehab can also provide evidence-based counseling in a therapeutic environment devoted to recovery and wellness.
Studies from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) show that regular and intensive outpatient treatment can benefit substance use disorders.
Outpatient treatment usually lasts between 10 and 16 weeks. It combines evidence-based counseling, education, and sober living skills development. Outpatient programs may be a good choice if you have a supportive home environment with no access to alcohol and/or drugs.
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) doesn’t just use medications to help you to heal from opioid or alcohol use disorders. MAT also includes counseling and peer group support.
You can receive medication-assisted treatment as part of residential treatment, or you can enroll in a community-based MAT program.
Aftercare And Alumni Services
Substance use disorders affect all aspects of your health and your life. An alumni or aftercare program can help you to continue to improve your physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being after you complete a formal treatment program.
Some people benefit from continued counseling and aftercare services. Others benefit from alumni programs which continue to support them in their recovery.
Length Of Addiction Treatment
Drug and alcohol treatment should also be individualized. Within an individual treatment plan, you can find some common program lengths, including:
- 30-day programs
- 60-day programs
- 90-day programs
- 120-day programs
Investigate treatment programs that offer a continuum of care. You can receive treatment with different intensity levels as your recovery progresses.
How To Pay For Treatment
Private insurance plans must pay for drug and alcohol rehab and other types of treatment according to federal regulations. In Connecticut, most rehabs accept major private insurance payments and government insurance (Tricare).
Many rehab programs also offer payment plans, scholarships, and discount programs. Some programs also accept state funding, Medicaid, and Medicare.
