Conditions and Issues Treated
A detailed list of the primary issues commonly treated.

Levels of Care Offered
The Step Up Inn offers a variety of treatment.
This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Aftercare Support, Drug Rehab, Residential, Sober-Living / Half-Way, with additional therapies available as listed below.
Sober living homes (abbreviated SLHs or sometimes sober houses ) are temporary housing for recovering addicts, most often those in early or mid stage recovery, who typically live in the home for 3 to 6 months.
The typical SLH functions as a halfway house, providing a stable living environment for addicts in recovery.
While at an SLH, residents typically meet with various therapists on site and attend regular 12-step meetings as well as other recovery group meetings.
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.
Without aftercare support, addicts can easily relapse back into addiction. It is crucial to integrate the addict back into society. Aftercare support should take place after outpatient treatment has ended.
There are a few different types of aftercare support that patients can seek after completing an inpatient treatment program:
- 12 Step Self-help groups (AA, NA)
- Therapeutic communities,
- Long-term, structured sober living arrangements
- Halfway houses (residential treatment centers)
Many different support groups exist for addicts to seek help after treatment. Some are more effective than others, depending on the person’s addiction, background, and other factors.
Therapies & Programs
The methods used to care for each individual at this West Haven, CT Facility.
Individual therapy is a form of counseling where you meet with a trained professional one-on-one. Meeting with a therapist in this setting allows for a personal and trusting relationship to be built. This allows the patient to open up about sensitive or private issues they may not feel comfortable discussing in a group. Individual therapy helps identify the root causes of your addiction, which can help prevent relapse.
Group therapy sessions are another common addiction recovery service. These group sessions typically involve six to 12 addicts who meet regularly with a trained professional for support and guidance.
During these sessions, the group shares their experiences with one another and provides feedback that can help each member avoid relapse or overcome specific obstacles they are facing in their recovery process. With this type of support and guidance, addicts can feel like they are part of a community that understands their struggles and will help them get through the hard times.
It’s not as simple as quitting drinking or using drugs and expecting the hard part to be over. Many addicts in recovery have discovered that they need to improve skills such as time management, organization, communication, socialization, and self-esteem. Learning certain life skills can help those who are struggling with addiction.

Experiential Therapy at The Step Up Inn
Drug addiction causes the formation of abnormal connections between neurons in the brain to form due to repeated exposure to drugs. These connections are responsible for addictive behaviors to drugs. Experiential therapy is done with patients individually and is different from traditional talk therapy. This therapy can help people revisit past traumas, heal, and move on in life in a more authentic way.
Experiential therapy uses activities to recreate experiences that may have caused trauma or negative emotions. These activities include role-playing, arts and crafts, animal care, music, or rock climbing. The individual will gradually experience calmness and love and change their perception positively through this therapy. Other than drug addiction, experiential therapy can be helpful for behavioral or eating disorders.
