Addiction Treatment In Stamford, CT
Treatments vary by individual because substance abuse is different for everyone. When you set out to get the treatment you need, look for a facility that provides flexibility for patients, addressing your individual needs.
You may also have other problems that contribute to your addiction. Anxiety, social problems, economic problems, and lack of support in the community all contribute to substance abuse. Look for a facility that will help you address these needs as you take back control of your life.
Alcohol And Drug Detox Programs
The process of withdrawing from drugs or alcohol can be dangerous if it’s done alone. The best way to detox is by seeking help from a professional.
Medical assistance can curb symptoms of detox and can also make the experience safer for your body. In a detox program, you’ll likely have access to medications and 24-hour support.
Inpatient Addiction Treatment
Inpatient treatment occurs all on-site. After being checked in, you’ll sleep and eat at the facility. You’ll also benefit from the support of others with similar experiences.

The best inpatient or residential facilities provide 24-hour supervision, counseling, medications and group therapy through peer interaction. This ensures that you’ll have the different types of treatments needed to successfully manage addiction.
Outpatient treatment occurs at a facility during the day, and at night you’ll return home. Outpatient treatment isn’t right for everyone, because not everyone can resist the temptation of taking drugs or alcohol when they return home at night.
You should only consider outpatient treatment if you have someone at home who can be a good support to you as you face the challenges that come with sober living. If you do not feel supported at home, this may not be the right choice for you.
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) programs combine medications and behavioral therapy. This combination is approved for treating severe alcohol and opioid use disorders.
You’ll receive a dose of naltrexone, methadone, buprenorphine, or another medication under close medical supervision. As you progress with therapy and your body restores balance and lessens dependence, your dose will be slowly tapered off.
Aftercare And Alumni Services
Once you’ve graduated from a program, whether that’s inpatient or outpatient, you’ll still need support from peers, medical professionals, and other people in the community.
The best facilities offer alumni services to people who have been through their programs. These services include 12-step participation, access to community resources, and sober living or recovery housing.
Length Of Addiction Treatment
Most people need the longest rehab program possible. Programs can be as short as 30 days or may last 90 days or up to a year or more. Remember that your success in the program will depend in part on a lengthy participation.
How To Pay For Treatment
Most people have insurance that will pay for a portion of their treatment, and they pay for the rest out of pocket. Some plans through Connecticare insurance will pay for rehab facilities; check with your plan for more information.
Sometimes grants are available to help people who do not have insurance or the money to cover costs of living in a rehab facility. In recent years, crowd-sourcing has also become a very common way for people to raise money to stay in a rehab facility.
