The Connection - The Bettor Choice offers a variety of treatment.
This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Aftercare Support, Drug Rehab, Dual-Diagnosis, Outpatient, Residential, Sober-Living / Half-Way, with additional therapies available as listed below.
Outpatient treatment can be considered the lowest intensity level of addiction treatment in New Haven, CT. It is ideal for early phase addiction or lower intensity addictions. The Connection - The Bettor Choice peer group support, 12-step programs, and individual counseling are likely to be involved.
Sober living homes are transitional houses for recovering addicts who need more structure than they would receive in an aftercare program. Specific rules and regulations are enforced in these homes, which are beneficial for people who need a greater degree of structure than other types of treatment.
Sober living home options include:
- Live-in managers – might be beneficial to people who do not have a support system in place at home, or who experience high levels of stress between work and home life.
- House managers – House managers are beneficial for people who do not have a strong social network to rely on, or who are concerned about relapse in their daily lives.
- House parents – House parents are beneficial to people who reside in areas without a strong aftercare program for support.
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 those who have completed a drug or alcohol treatment program. This support comes in individual and family counseling, treatment of psychiatric and other medical conditions, and medications to reduce cravings. It helps recovering addicts adjust to normal day-to-day activities and can last for a year or longer.
The majority of drug and alcohol addicts who receive aftercare treatment do not relapse. It is estimated that without aftercare, the relapse rate will be between 70 to 90 percent for most people. Aftercare is the final stage in addiction recovery, but it will also help maintain sobriety if relapse does occur.
Therapies & Programs
The methods used to care for each individual at this New Haven, 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
- Receiving professional advice and detox assistance from medical staff
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 The Connection - The Bettor Choice.
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.
