    Overdose deaths have steadily increased in Connecticut since 2012, with a total of 948 fatalities in 2018. In 2019, Litchfield County experienced the fourth highest rate of overdose deaths in Connecticut.

    If you or a loved one is struggling with alcohol or drug addiction, you may want to learn about finding treatment centers in your community. 

    Substance Abuse Treatment In New Milford, Connecticut

    The Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS) oversees addiction treatment and recovery support services throughout the state. To find a local treatment provider, you can:

    New Milford Alcohol & Drug Treatment Programs

    Once you reach out for help, a provider will likely perform an assessment to determine the appropriate level of care for you. Depending on your individual needs, you may receive the following treatment services:

    • medical detoxification
    • residential treatment
    • intensive outpatient program (IOP)
    • partial hospitalization program (PHP)
    • medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program
    • dual diagnosis treatment for co-occurring disorders
    • aftercare services

    Medical Drug & Alcohol Detox

    Withdrawal can be dangerous and is often an uncomfortable process. A detox program is a short-term process that offers 24/7 monitoring with support from trained specialists. In addition to counseling and other services, you may also receive medication to ease severe symptoms.

    Inpatient/Residential Drug Rehab

    Inpatient drug and alcohol rehab centers require you to live at the rehab facility, which gives you a chance to focus on recovery without outside distractions. While surrounded by supportive staff and peers, you will likely be involved in daily groups and activities. 

    With an inpatient treatment program, behavioral therapy, group therapy, individual counseling, and holistic activities can help you gain healthy coping skills and prepare you for long-term recovery.

    Outpatient Treatment

    Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) and intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) vary in intensity but require multiple treatment sessions per week. Each day of treatment will entail three or more hours of therapy sessions, including group and individual counseling. 

    Outpatient recovery programs are not as restrictive as inpatient rehab and may be more effective following an inpatient stay.

    Opioid & Alcohol Treatment Programs

    A medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program may be an effective treatment option if you experience opioid or alcohol addiction. 

    MAT programs utilize the use of FDA-approved medications, including Suboxone, methadone, and naltrexone, to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms. 

    When combined with behavioral therapy, MAT programs may encourage you to remain in treatment and lower the risk of alcohol or drug abuse.

    Following an inpatient or outpatient rehab program, you will be connected with aftercare services. High-quality aftercare services promote long-term recovery, reduce the risk of further substance use, and coordinate services for a healthy well-being. 

    12-step groups (like Alcoholics Anonymous), relapse prevention, sober living, and educational/vocational services are some of the resources that may become available to you.
