    Outpatient Program

    Outpatient treatment is often used for drug addicts in drug rehab. Outpatient treatment consists of counseling and therapy sessions. This form of treatment is also called ‘day-treatment’. The outpatient treatment process begins with the addict’s initial detox period, lasting about ten days.

    Outpatient treatment is used for those who are at moderate risk for ‘slipping back’ into the addiction, for those who:

    • Are not currently experiencing any side effects from withdrawal and can handle social pressure
    • Can handle stressors that might trigger relapse
    • Have a stable living environment or have moved out of their previous environment, which was not conducive to being sober
    • Have a support system that allows them to go to a facility a few times a week while still keeping their current responsibilities
    • Have no legal obligations, being either on parole or probation, that require them to seek treatment at a mandatory facility
    • Are not currently experiencing any side effects from withdrawal and can handle social pressure
    • Have a stable living environment or have moved out of their previous environment, which was not conducive to being sober

    Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient’s individual requirements.

    Therapies & Programs

    The methods used to care for each individual at this New London, CT Facility.

    Individual Therapy

    Because no single treatment is effective for all addicts, the goal of treatment and therapy should be to figure out what works best for each individual. Tolerance and withdrawal levels differ from person to person, affecting the treatment intensity required. Addiction treatment should aim to help addicts develop healthy coping mechanisms for dealing with their addiction and its underlying causes.

    Couples Therapy

    Couples therapy works with clients and significant others in a professional capacity to improve relationship dynamics. This can be helpful for addicts who are trying to marry the idea of recovery into their work, family, social lives – any aspect that has to do with relationships. Through counseling sessions, addicts will have an opportunity to talk about their addiction with professional partners.

    Family Counseling

    Family therapy is beneficial for people who are in addiction treatment services because it offers addicts the opportunity to work with their family members to better understand what led them to make choices that contributed to their addiction.

    This type of therapy helps family members reach a deeper understanding of how they can best support their loved one during recovery. It also helps the addict better understand their own motivations and triggers that led them to turn to substance abuse.

    Family therapy can help addicts in the following ways:

    • Assists family members in processing difficult feelings so they don’t blame or resent recovering addicts
    • Assists family members in understanding how addiction has impacted the addict and everyone who is involved with them
    • Allows the addict to take responsibility for their actions, while encouraging improved communication skills
    • Helps family members understand how to best support an individual in recovery so addicts don’t relapse again.

    Group therapy can help build a stronger support system and give addicts in New London, CT insight into their addiction that they gain through shared conversations. Group therapy occurs in a controlled group environment, exclusive of one on one meetings. This makes it safer for patients to feel comfortable sharing the struggles they’re going through and gaining perspective.

    Trauma therapy is beneficial for people who are recovering from drug addiction because it helps them heal from past traumas that may have caused them to turn to harmful substances or led them to experience negative emotions that contributed to their destructive behaviors.

    This type of treatment works by processing difficult experiences so individuals can learn how to process these events without having to turn to substances for coping.

    Trauma therapy can help addicts in the following ways:

    • Helps individuals understand their experiences and emotional responses to difficult events, including why they turned to drugs or alcohol
    • Provides them with comfort and support while working through difficult emotions related to these traumatic experiences
    • Offers an opportunity for addicts to have a voice and be heard, which can improve their self-esteem
    • Can help them develop coping skills so they can better respond to triggers instead of turning to substance abuse.
