Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs
The majority of detox programs take place in a residential or inpatient setting, but you may also find “ambulatory” detox programs that are community-based.
Detox support is essential to overcome the painful and uncomfortable physical symptoms that accompany drug/alcohol withdrawal. Withdrawal can risk your health, which is why medical supervision is an important part of detox programs.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment
Residential or inpatient drug and alcohol programs build a therapeutic community where the complete focus is on recovery and healing. You’ll live in a safe environment that includes 24-hour support and supervision.
Some residential programs offer experiences that can help you see your life differently, including music therapy, art therapy, and outdoor/wilderness therapy. You’ll also receive evidence-based group and individual counseling during the program.
Outpatient treatment takes place in the community and may be a good choice if you have support at home. It’s also a good option if you’ve completed a residential treatment program and “step down” in treatment intensity.
Outpatient programs meet several times a week in a community-based facility. They include counseling, peer group support, and education about substance use disorders.
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) can help people to recover from drug and/or alcohol use disorders. This form of treatment uses FDA-approved medications to provide an opportunity to heal from the effects of drug/alcohol use on the brain and central nervous system.
MAT medications may be a part of residential and outpatient treatment programs.
Aftercare And Alumni Services
Your lifelong health can benefit from alumni and aftercare programs. You can continue to take part in treatment after you complete rehab.
Evidence-based group and individual counseling can benefit your mental health. Sober living activities and peer support groups can help you continue to cope with the difficulties we all experience in life without drugs and/or alcohol.
Length Of Addiction Treatment
Your individual treatment needs should influence your treatment plan. Within a broad framework, however, you’ll find that programs fit into some common lengths, including:
- 30 days
- 60 days
- 90 days
- 120 days
How To Pay For Treatment
Federal regulations require private insurance plans to provide the same level of coverage for addiction treatment as they do for other disorders. Most rehab centers in Connecticut accept private insurance.
Connecticut Medicaid and other state programs will pay for many types of treatment. Medicare and Tricare will also pay for rehab services. Some rehab programs may also offer payment plans, discounts, or a sliding fee scale.
