Drug & Alcohol Detoxification Facilities in Connecticut

While Connecticut may not come to mind when someone thinks about the states hit hardest by the opioid epidemic, it has seen drastic increases in drug overdoses in recent years; and these rates are still climbing. For example, between 2015 to 2016, there was a staggering 240% increase in the number of cocaine overdoses that also involved fentanyl and a 54% increase in the number of cocaine-only overdose deaths. According to the DEA, Connecticut remains a large hub for cocaine trafficking into the US from the Caribbean Corridor, mainly receiving cocaine shipments from Venezuela and Puerto Rico. Connecticut also remains in the national top 10 lists for both heroin and fentanyl overdoses as of 2018. As for heroin, there are 13.1 overdose deaths per 100,000 people, and for fentanyl, the overdose rate is 14.8 per 100,000 people in Connecticut. All of this being said, there is still hope for someone who may be struggling with drug or alcohol addiction. Connecticut is also home to many professional drug and alcohol detox centers. 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.

Connecticut Addiction & Detox Statistics

  • According to surveys, approximately eight percent of the Connecticut population has abused an illicit mind-altering substance at least once over the course of the past month.
  • Like most of the United States, Connecticut has been experiencing a major problem with underage drinking. Studies show that about 18 percent of adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17 have participated in at least one episode of alcohol abuse in the past month. However, while these figures are high, they’re slightly lower than the national average.
  • In the past year, there have been more than 500 deaths from heroin overdoses in Connecticut.
  • Approximately five percent of adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17 report having taken prescription drugs for nonmedical purposes. This is slightly higher than the national average of four percent.

STATE Detox Resources

  • The Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery, or CCAR, is a grassroots, volunteer-based group that aims to organize communities to form coalitions of individuals offering support and advocacy to addicts and their loved ones. As well, CCAR emphasizes addiction education as a means of prevention and to end the discrimination that people suffering from substance abuse problems experience.
  • Shatterproof is an organization based in Connecticut — although it does offer advocacy for anyone in need, no matter where they might be located — that aims to curb the damage that individuals, families, and communities are occurring due to the effects of substance abuse. The group’s main function is to provide information and educational resources, support, and advocacy to addicts and their loved ones.
  • The Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services — also known as DMHAS for short — is a government-sanctioned, state-run organization that serves as a resource to individuals of low income who are suffering from addiction.
  • Community Speaks Out is a Connecticut-based nonprofit organization created in response to the lack of support that has been available to addicts and their families. The group provides guidance through the steps of treatment, helps to find financing for treatment, and conducts educational seminars in schools and throughout communities.
