    Branford, Connecticut Addiction Treatment Services

    If you or a loved one is struggling with a substance use disorder, researching local treatment options is a great first step.

    Substance Abuse Treatment In Branford, Connecticut

    In Branford, the Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS) works to promote and administer many of the recovery services in the state. They also help adults struggling with alcohol or drug abuse who can’t afford treatment on their own.

    Branford Alcohol & Drug Treatment Programs

    The drug and alcohol rehab programs in and around Branford offer a full spectrum of care. When you enter treatment, you’ll likely be evaluated by a treatment specialist so they can create a specific treatment plan for you. Some of the treatment options in your plan may include:

    • medical detox programs
    • inpatient/residential treatment
    • outpatient treatment
    • medication-assisted treatment
    • dual-diagnosis treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders
    • aftercare support for addiction recovery

    Medical Drug & Alcohol Detox

    Medical detoxification is a short-term process and one of the first treatment programs you’re likely to go through. If you still have drugs and/or alcohol in your system, medical professionals recommend a medical detox program to help you safely withdraw from those substances.

    Once the substances start to exit your body, withdrawal symptoms may occur. This is why you’re monitored and treated by healthcare providers to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible.

    Residential/Inpatient Drug Rehab

    Inpatient drug rehab involves staying at a treatment facility while participating in health services like behavioral therapy, group therapy, and addiction education. You’ll also likely learn coping skills to aid in relapse prevention.

    Inpatient treatment can take anywhere from a few weeks to a couple of months. It focuses on building a community for the foundation of ongoing peer support.

    Outpatient Treatment

    Outpatient treatment is similar to inpatient care; you simply don’t need to stay at the treatment facility. You’re able to go home after each session.

    The two major forms of outpatient treatment are intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) and partial hospitalization programs (PHPs)

    Opioid & Alcohol Treatment Programs

    Opioid and alcohol addiction sometimes uses medication as part of treatment. This is known as medication-assisted treatment (MAT).

    Medications like buprenorphine, naltrexone, or methadone are prescribed to ease cravings and block the euphoric feeling you get when taking opioids or alcohol. This can make the beginning days of recovery a little easier to deal with.

    Aftercare services ensure you have support even after you graduate from formal treatment. 

    Aftercare can include sober-living housing, peer support, alumni groups, and 12-step support group meetings.

    Using Health Insurance For Addiction Treatment In Branford, Connecticut

    Insurance covering the cost of treatment can often make a big difference when deciding whether you go or not. Luckily, most private insurance and Medicaid/Medicare plans cover addiction treatment. To discover if your insurance plan covers rehab programs, you can:

    • call the number on the back of your insurance card and discuss your benefits with a representative
    • contact specific rehab centers to check if they accept your insurance
    • read over your insurance policy documents to remind yourself of your benefits 

    If you’re uninsured, you can contact DMHAS to learn more about state-funded rehab facilities. You can also look for treatment centers that offer sliding fee scales for those who need financial assistance.
