Drug & Alcohol Detoxification Facilities in Connecticut

Connecticut is home to many high-quality drug and alcohol detox programs. If someone is trying to quit using drugs or alcohol, the journey to a new way of life often begins at a medical detox center. Further treatment and care are usually recommended, but entering a detox center is a very solid first step.

If someone is struggling with alcohol addiction then an alcohol rehab is often necessary. Suddenly quitting drinking without medical help can lead to dangerous side effects. There are certain prescription drugs that may also produce dangerous side effects when someone stops using them. Once detox is complete then entering an inpatient treatment center may be wise. Getting comprehensive drug or alcohol treatment provides the best chance of long-term recovery.

When looking at the different treatment options it is easy to get overwhelmed. There are 189 drug rehab centers in Connecticut so knowing where to start can narrow down your options. There are many drug-specific or alcohol-specific treatment programs. Depending on the substance someone used this can rule out many treatment providers. The level of care is also a consideration. Would someone benefit more from outpatient treatment or a residential treatment program? This can narrow down the options even further.

Consideration should also be made for mental health services. Mental health issues are commonly co-occurring alongside drug addiction. Finding dual diagnosis treatment can provide help for both issues at the same time. Connecticut has over 150 dual diagnosis healthcare providers across the state. These rehab facilities can provide behavioral therapy as well as addiction treatment services. If someone is struggling with mental health issues and a substance use disorder then this kind of integrated behavioral health treatment is crucial. This can help them build a firm foundation on which to continue their recovery.

The opioid epidemic has hit the state of Connecticut quite hard in recent years. There has been a significant increase in the number of opioid overdoses over the last decade. This number is continuing to rise. Between 2019 and 2020 there was nearly a 15% increase in the number of overdose deaths in Connecticut. Data has only been collected for January and February of 2021 so far, but the number is continuing to rise. Compared to 2020, January of 2021 had over 20% more overdose deaths. Fentanyl is also increasing its presence in the state of Connecticut. It is even appearing in non-opioid drugs.
