Addiction Treatment In Norwalk, CT

When you go through your options for rehab programs, note that certain ones offer more effective treatment than others. Rehab programs that are flexible in terms of making needed changes to your treatment plan tend to work more effectively.

These changes can involve reducing or increasing behavioral therapy sessions, adding specific services you might benefit from, or removing certain services that you don’t need anymore. Making adjustments to your treatment plan ensures that you get effective care throughout rehab.

Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs

Preparing to enter an inpatient or outpatient addiction treatment program involves going through detox from alcohol or drugs. This process puts strain on your body as it adjusts, which can cause mild or severe symptoms.

Professional inpatient and outpatient detox programs provide supervision and safety while you go through this process. You might also have access to medication for easing withdrawal.

Inpatient Addiction Treatment

When you can’t count on support at home during recovery and your addiction is severe, you should look for inpatient rehab programs. Being in an inpatient program means that you’ll stay in a treatment center with 24-hour supervision and regular support from peers and professionals.

Inpatient rehab generally involves different methods of treating addiction both therapeutically and clinically. Some of the services that might be part of your inpatient treatment plan include behavioral therapy, stress management techniques, and relapse prevention.

Outpatient Treatment

When you have a less severe addiction and you can rely on support at home, an outpatient rehab program might be right for you.

Rather than staying in a facility, you visit an outpatient treatment center during the week for individual and group behavioral therapy sessions. Standard outpatient care involves fewer sessions per week, while intensive outpatient care involves more sessions overall.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Giving up alcohol or opioids all at once can have strong and possibly dangerous effects on your body. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) programs help ease withdrawal from these substances with medication like methadone.

These medications can also help reduce cravings, which lowers your risk of a relapse. MAT programs include behavioral therapy as well for the recovery process.

Aftercare And Alumni Services

After you go through an inpatient or outpatient rehab program, you might benefit from receiving continuing care. Alumni and aftercare services provide this ongoing support in various ways.

You might have an option to join a 12-step program, participate in continuing group therapy with your peers, or get access to sober-living housing or assistance with finding employment.

Length Of Addiction Treatment

It’s important for you to be in a rehab program long enough to make a healthy recovery. These programs can range from 30 days to 90 days or more than a year. Keep in mind that longer treatment programs generally have more favorable results for a long-term recovery.

How To Pay For Treatment

Addiction treatment programs differ in cost at each facility. In order to pay for your rehab program, you can see if your private health insurance plan includes partial or full coverage for addiction treatment.

You have other options to explore as well if you’re uninsured, such as Access to Recovery vouchers, sliding-fee scales, and custom payment plans that you arrange with the treatment center. Some facilities also take plans from Medicaid or Medicare.
