Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs

Detox programs are an important component of addiction treatment. Detox programs help you successfully cope with withdrawal symptoms, which can be unpleasant and uncomfortable.

To minimize risk and increase your comfort, detox programs include medical supervision. Most detox programs last three or four days. They can take place in a residential or outpatient setting.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment

An inpatient or residential treatment program provides 24 hours of substance-free living and support for recovery. Residential programs offer evidence-based practices like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT).

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment programs form a part of the continuum of care for substance use disorders. NIDA studies report that outpatient treatment can be effective in helping people to continue to develop coping skills for recovery.

Outpatient programs meet in the community and include psychotherapy, education, and peer group support like 12-step meetings.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

An evidence-based practice, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) combines FDA-approved medications and therapy. It can be used as part of residential or inpatient treatment or as part of an outpatient program.

MAT can treat opioid and alcohol use disorders. Many MAT programs, especially for opioid use, last longer than six months. MAT medications may also help to ease withdrawal symptoms.

Aftercare And Alumni Services

Many people are able to reinforce their sobriety and continue to live happy and productive lives by participating in alumni and aftercare programs.

You may have formed close bonds with the people who went through rehab with you, and alumni programs help to reinforce those bonds. Aftercare services continue to support health and sobriety through therapy, education, and peer groups.

Length Of Addiction Treatment

There’s no such thing as “one size fits all” when you’re seeking to recover from drug and alcohol use.

However, many treatment programs have common lengths that include:

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

How To Pay For Treatment

The state of Connecticut provides funding for addiction treatment programs, including medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorders. Most drug and alcohol treatment programs in the state also accept major private insurance plans.

You can find rehabs which offer a sliding fee scale or discount for private payment.
