CONNECTION ADDICTION TREATMENT PROGRAMS: OPTIONS AND LEVELS OF CARE
Although attending a weekly support group has its benefits, it may not be the right option for everyone.
People who have never been to rehab may need
before they can begin an outpatient 12-Step program. There are several ways for people in Connecticut to get help, and there are many levels of care available.
DRUG AND ALCOHOL DETOX
Alcohol and drug detox offers treatment for the withdrawal symptoms
that often accompany addiction recovery. Some drugs – such as, benzodiazepines, opioids, alcohol and stimulants – may require it
before rehab. This is for the individual’s own safety and because of the complications that can arise during recovery.
There are several types of detox programs that are available in Connecticut. They include:
Inpatient rehabilitation programs
involve staying in a facility for about 28 days. That timeframe may also include time spent in detox, and
many inpatient treatment centers in Connecticut offer these services in-house. This allows for a seamless
transition when it is time to move into rehab.
Inpatient treatment is where many people begin the recovery process. It offers a higher level of support,
which is just what many people need in recovery.
INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT TREATMENT PROGRAMS
Intensive outpatient programs, or IOPs,
provide rehab services to people while they live at home.
Many people in Connecticut enjoy the flexibility of IOPs because clients only come
to appointments during the evening hours. They typically run for about 12 weeks and clients may attend 3-5 times per week.
PARTIAL HOSPITALIZATION PROGRAMS
Partial hospitalization programs also provide a high level of care.
Clients who come to PHPs still live at home while they get the help they need. They may come to the program as much as five
times per week for the entire day.

OUTPATIENT THERAPY AND REHABILITATION
outpatient rehab programs only
involve individual therapy sessions. This level of care does not allow as much staff contact, which might make it inappropriate
for someone who has never been through any type of treatment. Clients may come to appointments as often as three times per week.
