You may find residential rehab centers that specialize in treating specific substance use disorders, including opioid use or alcohol use. Some programs may also have experience treating co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders.

Outpatient Treatment

People who have a sober-living environment and support for a drug- and alcohol-free lifestyle at home may benefit from outpatient treatment.

Outpatient programs usually meet a few days a week for two to three hours at a time. Programs meeting more frequently are called intensive outpatient programs (IOPs). Many outpatient programs last between 10 and 16 weeks, offering therapy, education, and other supports.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Combining FDA-approved medications including naltrexone and buprenorphine with therapy and behavioral supports, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) can help you to recover from opioid or alcohol use disorders.

MAT programs can be part of inpatient or outpatient treatment. MAT offers people the opportunity to heal from substance use as they also participate in therapy and other services.

Aftercare And Alumni Services

Alumni and aftercare programs can help to strengthen recovery. They provide counseling, peer group support, and ongoing help to cope with stress and potential setbacks that you’ll likely experience as you continue your life.

Once you have finished drug and alcohol rehab programs, alumni or aftercare can continue your healing and recovery process.

Length Of Addiction Treatment

Your treatment program should be individualized and should respond to your substance use disorder and treatment history.

Within individualized treatment, you’ll find some common program lengths:

  • 30 days
  • 60 days
  • 90 days
  • 120 days

How To Pay For Treatment

You’ll find that many drug and alcohol rehab programs in Connecticut accept private insurance plan payments. Treatment programs may also accept government insurance (Tricare) and Medicare/Medicare supplement plans. Some state programs also provide treatment services.

If you need help to pay for treatment, your family or friends may be able to contribute. Some programs may also offer payment plans, scholarships, discounts, or sliding fee scales.
