Inpatient Addiction Treatment

Inpatient or residential treatment programs provide 24-hour support in a secure drug- and alcohol-free environment. Look for an inpatient treatment center that provides evidence-based counseling.

Residential treatment may offer holistic treatment that includes experience-based therapy like music therapy, yoga therapy, horse therapy, and wilderness therapy. Experiences like these can help you discover your strengths as you develop healthy habits for recovery.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment programs are recommended if you have a sober home environment and support from friends and family. Outpatient treatment usually lasts between 10 and 16 weeks.

Outpatient programs take place in the community and can vary in intensity and duration. They include group and individual therapy, education, and other recovery support services.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Connecticut supports medication-assisted treatment (MAT) programs with grants and direct aid. The medication-assisted treatment uses FDA-approved prescription medications including naltrexone and buprenorphine along with therapy and peer group support.

MAT can be incorporated into a residential rehab program or take place independently in the community. Some MAT programs can last up to a year and longer.

Aftercare And Alumni Services

After you complete a rehab program, you can continue to build your sober living skills and maintain your recovery through alumni and aftercare services. You may want to continue group or individual counseling or participate in 12-step meetings or other peer support groups.

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

How To Pay For Treatment
