This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Dual-Diagnosis, Intensive Outpatient, Outpatient, Residential, with additional therapies available as listed below.
Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
An intensive outpatient treatment program, or IOP, is set up for those struggling with an addiction to begin the recovery process. However, the patient will not live at the facility during treatment.
IOP involves patients coming in and out of a medical office building regularly to receive therapy and other services while continuing their life outside of these visits.
IOP is a step up from drug detoxification or alcohol detox. However, it’s still considered a phase of recovery rather than the ultimate goal. There are many rehabs and treatment facilities available to patients in need of IOP.
Outpatient treatment can be considered the lowest intensity level of addiction treatment in Darien, CT. It is ideal for early phase addiction or lower intensity addictions. Child Guidance Center of Southern Connecticut - Darien peer group support, 12-step programs, and individual counseling are likely to be involved.
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 Darien, CT Facility.
Individual therapy is ideal for addicts who want to focus on themselves. It can also be helpful for those whose withdrawal symptoms are exacerbated by the presence of other people.
Benefits of individual therapy are:
- Access to a personalized treatment plan that focuses on the individual needs of the addict
- More privacy during treatment sessions
- Better personal development through introspection
- Increased self-awareness regarding addictive tendencies in order to avoid relapse
- Greater potential for a long-term recovery plan

Couples therapy is a treatment method used to help couples in which at least one member of the couple has a drug addiction. Couples therapy can be used whether the addicted partner is using drugs or in recovery. An additional benefit of couples therapy is that it can help make other types of treatment, such as 12-step programs, more effective.
Family therapy can help you and your family deal with old issues that may trigger substance abuse. The idea behind family therapy for drug addiction is that you are never fully healed from substance abuse until you’ve healed your relationship with your family, too. To get sober, you need to find a different way to cope with the pain in your life.
This is when a group of people in various stages of recovery meet up and discuss their experiences, triggers, successes, failures, and even alternative therapies! Unlike support groups where everyone already knows each other, group therapy is conducted along side outpatient or inpatient treatment at Child Guidance Center of Southern Connecticut - Darien.
Trauma therapy is a clinical process that helps individuals deal with mental stress often caused by traumatic events. The therapist helps the person identify, understand and work through the problem. This is done with the help of talking about it in group or one-on-one counseling sessions.
Therapists use relaxation, role-playing, art, and music to help the person open up about what is bothering them. Some examples include:
- Talking about the traumatic event and how it affected them.
- Helping those who have PTSD to deal with their nightmares and recurring memories.
- Working with individuals to resolve the issues triggering the stress, whether seeing someone who reminds them of what happened or feeling helpless.
The individual is also encouraged to help others that are struggling with similar problems. This often helps them feel empowered and gives them hope.
Trauma therapy is not for everyone; it is usually reserved for people who have recently experienced a traumatic event and struggle to get over it. It is generally done for children, teenage victims of sexual assault, and war veterans.
The results of Rational Emotional Behavior Therapy treatment are clear. It seeks to help you in the short term rather than being lifelong treatment. Rational Emotional Behavior Therapy addresses the root issue of an individual’s emotional distress. It is proven effective with substance use disorders, which can help break a spiral of negative thinking. A drug rehab center that uses REBT is more likely to be successful. It creates lasting changes in a patient’s behavior, and this can improve your quality of life.
