Connecticut Mental Health Center is a drug rehab that helps people with dual diagnosis and mental health issues. The rehab offers inpatient and outpatient care, depending on the person's needs.
Conditions and Issues Treated
A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.
Getting sober on your own is not only dangerous during the initial detox, it is also more likely to result in a relapse later on. Addiction treatment centers provide a monitored environment where you will get the medical attention you need, as well as the emotional support to overcome drug or alcohol abuse.
When addiction and psychiatric issues co-occur, the addict’s recovery is more successful when both conditions are treated. A dual diagnosis refers to a condition in which the patient is diagnosed with two health issues: addiction and bipolar disorder.
Usually, dual diagnosis sufferers are prescribed a combination of treatments for each condition. The most common therapies are psychotherapy, behavioral therapy, spiritual counseling, 12-step programs, and medication management.
Psychiatric conditions are an obstacle to recovery because they can create roadblocks to a healthy lifestyle. Drugs and alcohol may be used as a means of self-medication, which can have dangerous consequences. Over time, addicts build up a tolerance and suffer withdrawal symptoms when drug use is stopped.
With the proper treatment, dual diagnosis sufferers can overcome their conditions and achieve lasting sobriety.

Therapies & Programs
The methods used to care for each individual at Connecticut Mental Health Center.
Individual therapy is a critical component of addiction recovery. It allows the patients to go deep into their core issues and discover how to handle those problems better. Therapy can be conducted in individual sessions as well as group settings. In individual therapy for addiction, the patient meets with their therapist one-on-one to focus on the underlying issues. This allows patients to open up and discuss personal topics they may not feel comfortable discussing in a group setting. This type of therapy can help develop solutions specific to each patient, which helps speed up the recovery process.
Couples therapy is beneficial for couples in which at least one partner has a substance use disorder. This type of therapy can help partners improve communication skills, which is an important factor in a healthy relationship. It can also help partners better understand one another so they have a greater understanding of how the other partner may be feeling.
Benefits of couples therapy include:
- Improvement in communication skills
- Increased understanding of the dynamics within a relationship
- Increased sense of support and trust in the relationship
- Better teamwork between partners/increased willingness to listen and work together
- Enhanced tolerance of each other’s shortcomings
- Improved ability to have open, honest communication with each other
Family Counseling + Therapy
Family therapy is a crucial part of drug treatment and getting sober. It is one of the most effective ways to help addicts stay on the path to long-term sobriety. When a drug addict decides that they want to try and get sober, it takes the support of every person they love to succeed. It can be incredibly difficult for loved ones to watch an addict go through the pain and suffering of withdrawal, but by being there with them and supporting them, they can help to make sure that the addiction never returns.
One of the most important parts of family therapy is the relapse prevention plan. During treatment, therapists and doctors will often sit down with the addict and their family to develop a plan in case the addict ever feels like they want to use again. This plan should involve steps the addict and family can take together to prevent them from relapsing in the future. An addict’s family can play a vital part in helping them to avoid relapse because they can spot the warning signs and help them get back on track before it becomes too much of a problem.
Group therapy helps prevent addicts from feeling isolated or unique in their situation by offering a sense of comfort and fellowship. It also creates a forum for addicts to build their support systems and learn from each other. The group therapy sessions at Connecticut Mental Health Center occur in a group setting rather than one-on-one to create a safer, controlled environment where addicts feel comfortable.
Trauma therapy helps people dealing with addiction by allowing them to confront the traumas of their past and move past them. It is important to note that trauma therapy should not be confused with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) Rather, it is used to treat the effects of trauma, which are often at the root of addiction.
Rational Emotional Behavior Therapy aims to help you understand your emotions and how they affect your behaviors and addiction. It breaks down the addiction and behaviors behind it. Those who complete the program will identify their feelings and reactions and positively change their behaviors.
Drug addiction can be a difficult thing to overcome, but with the help of nutrition therapy, it can become a little bit easier. Nutrition therapy provides addicts with the nutrients they need to recover both physically and mentally. This type of therapy also helps addicts to have more energy and strength to fight cravings. Most importantly, good nutrition helps to keep addicts strong against the physical symptoms of withdrawal.
