Inpatient Treatment Program
Inpatient treatment is an intensive program that takes place when a patient checks into a rehabilitation facility. The treatment includes detoxification and counseling sessions, which are round the clock. Outpatient treatments are also available, but inpatient care is advised as the first step of rehabilitation.
Intensive rehab ensures the patient stays in a substance-free atmosphere, improving treatment success rates. The patient participates in group therapy for motivation from other patients who have overcome addiction. Family members are also involved in providing emotional support throughout the program.
Sober Living Homes are an option for those who have completed a treatment program within the past several months. However, it isn’t advisable to use this as a permanent living arrangement because it can lead to a relapse .
The goal of a sober living home is to provide a supportive environment for recovering addicts so they don’t need to return to their previous lifestyles. The homes will not accept residents who are still using drugs or alcohol, and those living in the house must follow a set of rules dictating how they should behave to avoid relapsing.
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.
Intervention services can be beneficial for people who have not been able to overcome drug and alcohol addiction on their own. It is recommended for individuals whose addiction has led to dangerous or life-threatening circumstances.
Intervention services are beneficial for:
- People who have relapsed after completing other forms of addiction treatment.
- People with drug addictions that have led to dangerous health conditions, such as HIV.
- People who are at risk of losing their family, home, or job due to addiction.
- People who are having difficulty overcoming drug and alcohol addiction on their own.
- An intervention can be conducted by professionals, or by loved ones of an addict. If the person being intervened on agrees to enter addiction treatment after the intervention, the next step would be to choose a treatment program.
If they do not agree to enter addiction treatment after the intervention, loved ones may choose to go back to the drawing board and try another form of treatment. They may also choose to not receive any further treatment, but there are usually other factors in play that may make it difficult for people to stop using drugs or alcohol.
Aftercare is a term that’s used to refer to any sort of continuing care offered for a drug addict who has voluntarily entered a rehabilitation program. This type of care can be provided in several settings, including outpatient therapy sessions after the addict has completed an inpatient program. There are also 12-step support groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, which can provide additional help for addicts trying to stay sober.
Therapies & Programs
The methods used to care for each individual at this New Canaan, CT Facility.
Individual Therapy is a critical component of addiction recovery. Therapists work with patients to identify the root of their addiction and figure out how to better handle the issues that led to them using drugs. Individual Therapy is the one-on-one session where people meet with their therapist. Individual therapy provides a safe space for people to open up and discuss personal and sensitive topics which they may not feel comfortable discussing in a group setting.
Group Therapy is utilized by drug treatment centers like The Lighthouse - Elm St to provide the recovering drug addict with a platform to talk about their feelings and experiences. It also provides for an opportunity to learn from other addicts who have successfully overcome their addiction.
Group Therapy is employed in lectures, seminars, or discussion groups (the latter two are typically conducted as “therapy groups”). It is recommended that all group members be recovering addicts for this type of therapy to work (though it does not exclude others with lived experience).
Nutrition therapy has been used to help drug addicts for decades. Many early reports on addiction treatment indicate that some patients recovered from the “satisfying power of food”. For years, this phenomenon has been utilized as a treatment modality in eating disorders for adults, adolescents, and children. Specific nutrients have been identified that influence neurotransmitters associated with reward pathways of the brain.
Studies have shown that carbohydrate loading with complex carbohydrates to elevate serotonin levels was effective in treating bulimia nervosa. This approach prompted researchers to explore the use of this type of nutritional intervention in other disorders.

Fitness therapy is an alternative treatment for drug addiction. Fitness therapists work with addiction counselors to help drug addicts recover from their addictions by incorporating physical fitness into their treatment. Fitness therapy uses both group exercise and individual physical activity to help addicts stay fit while getting sober.
Exercise releases endorphins in the brain, which are “feel-good” chemicals that reduce pain and increase feelings of happiness. Fitness therapy aims to help addicts stay sober by associating exercise with those good feelings. By helping addicts become active, fitness therapy also helps them gain self-esteem and lose weight.
