Conditions and Issues Treated
Opioid + Opiate Addiction Treatment in Waterbury, CT
Opioid abuse has become a national epidemic in the last decade. The US has one of the world’s highest rates of opioid use and abuse, as well as opioid-related deaths. Opioids are classified as Schedule II-IV controlled substances in the US due to their high potential for abuse.
Oxycodone, hydrocodone, methadone, and fentanyl are the most common Opioids and are commonly prescribed to treat pain. Tolerance to opioids develops over time, making life difficult, if not impossible, without them. Opioid users often obtain the drugs illegally. They can be drug dealers, friends, or family members who do not have valid prescriptions.
The desire for a more intense high than prescription opioids can quickly lead to heroin use. Heroin users are more prone to illness and death due to the high risk of overdose.
Many opioid addicts who seek treatment believe that the only way to overcome their addiction is through medical detox and long-term drug addiction rehab. To help patients wean off their addiction and reduce the risk of overdose, medication-assisted therapy (MAT) involves prescribing a replacement opioid. Doctors use MAT in conjunction with other anti-craving medications to help patients maintain recovery. Due to the high risk of relapse, MAT is often combined with individual and group counseling and social support programs.

Levels of Care Offered at Connecticut Renaissance - West Main Street
This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Aftercare Support, Detox, Drug Rehab, Inpatient, Outpatient, Residential, with additional therapies available as listed below.
The detoxification process typically includes some combination of the following: medical supervision, medication to help alleviate withdrawal symptoms, drug testing to monitor progress, and counseling.
Tackling the physical symptoms of withdrawal is essential to ensure that an individual can focus on the psychological aspects of the addiction without focusing on the physical pain that comes with withdrawal.
Withdrawal symptoms can be uncomfortable, even life-threatening, so carefully managing the detox process is extremely important. In many cases, more advanced pharmaceutical interventions are used to treat more severe withdrawal symptoms. Medication might help alleviate discomfort associated with detox, including nausea and headaches.
Inpatient Treatment Program
Inpatient treatment centers offer a safe, secure, and often medically supervised environment for drug or alcohol-addicted individuals. Many of these facilities are equipped to provide detoxification, treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders, and aftercare programs. The patient typically spends 28 to 30 days at the facility and will receive extensive drug counseling.
Waterbury, CT Outpatient Program
An outpatient treatment program is set up to help with alcohol or drug addiction or a co-occurring disorder. The patient must attend the facility for their therapy and other programs but can return home each night.
The frequency of mandatory attendance decreases after much of Connecticut Renaissance - West Main Street‘s program is complete.
Outpatient treatment is a recovery approach that allows recovering addicts to live at home while getting rehab for addiction
An outpatient can include day treatments which include attending group sessions one hour per week. A person living in an outpatient environment may be allowed the opportunity to work full time if they choose to and continue studies without interruption from drugs/alcohol.
Outpatient treatment is an option for people who want to maintain their careers and families. Outpatients live at home but attend treatment such as individual counseling, group counseling, or twelve-step meetings during the day.
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.
Aftercare support is vital to the success of someone in drug or alcohol treatment. It involves assisting with entering a sober living home, getting career counseling or educational assistance and even getting the individual lined up with programs like AA and NA. This support helps recovering addicts readjust to normal day-to-day activities and maintain sobriety.
When a person is in drug or alcohol treatment, they have to increase their focus on themselves. They need to learn how to recognize the triggers that cause them to relapse and learn the habits that would benefit them if they were to be sober. This is all part of the growth in recovery, and aftercare is essential to that process.
Therapies & Programs
At Connecticut Renaissance - West Main Street , to learn from past mistakes and improve one’s situation, the recovering person meets individually with a therapist. The counselor or therapist will address addiction causes, triggers, mental issues, dual diagnosis, and aftercare plans during this time. This is a very intense and challenging process. Some clients find it easier to open up to someone other than family or friends who understand their struggles with addiction.
Couples therapy sessions are typically used to help couples in recovery from drug addiction work through their issues. These types of sessions can be beneficial for many reasons, including the fact that they add a layer of accountability when both partners in a couple are recovering from addiction.
Therapy can also provide addicts with another effective way to cope with stress and avoid relapse during difficult situations. This type of therapy can help improve communication with their partners, which can strengthen the relationship and prevent future problems that might lead to relapse.
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. An addict’s family can play a vital part in helping them to avoid relapse. They can spot the warning signs and help them get back on track.
In group therapy, recovering addicts meet with a therapist and other people in recovery. Some groups are closed, meaning only people who share the same addiction or problem can attend. Others are open to anyone who wants to stop using drugs or drinking alcohol. Group therapy sessions typically focus on one topic each week or month so that recovering addicts can discuss issues they face daily.
Rational Emotional Behavior Therapy (REBT) offers benefits to addicts in a wide range of situations. This type of therapy helps individuals better understand their emotions and how to manage them in a healthy way.
Individuals who have used addiction treatment services have found this type of therapy beneficial in the following ways:
- Helps individuals identify, understand and manage their emotions in a healthier way
- Assists addicts in developing coping skills to help avoid relapse
- Encourages increased tolerance and less judgmental thinking
- REBT combines cognitive and emotive techniques to help individuals overcome harmful, self-defeating behaviors.
The 12-step program is designed for people who suffer from addiction. It helps addicts to recover and live a normal life. This program is used in almost all substance abuse treatments. The 12 steps include:
- Admitting the problem.
- Focusing on the recovery process.
- Making amends with others.
- Believing in a higher power.
In this program, peers help each other to achieve the goal of abstinence. The founders of Alcoholics anonymous initially developed the 12-step program. According to its successful results, it is used as a part of other substance abuse treatments. The program provides cognitive restructuring to an individual to change negative thoughts, which leads to long-term benefits.
Drug and alcohol addiction can lead to a breakdown in life skills. Learning certain life skills can help those who are struggling with addiction. Life skills training at Connecticut Renaissance - West Main Street in Waterbury, CT teaches patients skills such as time management, budgeting, and social abilities to improve their quality of life and prevent relapse.
An addict’s life skills are maladaptive, meaning they are counterproductive. An addict may have learned poor time management skills growing up, have a hard time budgeting money, or be socially awkward. An addict’s poor life skills can lead to relapse and the inability to achieve long-term sobriety. Life skills training teaches patients effective coping mechanisms, which can help them live a clean and sober life.
