    According to SAMHSA, there are no substance abuse recovery centers operating in Watertown at this time. However, both inpatient and outpatient treatment is available in nearby communities including Waterbury, Hartford, New Haven, Bristol, and others. 

    Following an in-depth assessment, your personalized treatment plan may include services like medical detoxification, inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment, specialized treatment programs for opioid and alcohol addiction, and aftercare support.

    Medical Drug & Alcohol Detox

    Short-term medical detoxification programs prepare you for drug or alcohol rehab by keeping you medically supervised as you experience withdrawal symptoms.

    After you finish your detox program, you or your loved one can choose between a variety of different rehab programs to continue your recovery progress.

    Inpatient/Residential Treatment

    Inpatient treatment facilities are designed for individuals who need focused, intensive treatment for substance use disorders or dual diagnoses involving co-occurring mental health disorders.

    If you enroll in an inpatient drug rehab program, you should expect to live inside a rehabilitation center for an extended period of time, with close access to medical professionals and a variety of treatment programs and interventions. 

    Outpatient Treatment

    If you enroll in outpatient treatment, you will be expected to attend regular treatment sessions while continuing to live at home. Outpatient services may be offered after, in place of, or as an alternative to inpatient treatment, and may be formatted as:

    • behavioral therapy and group or individual counseling
    • educational courses

    MAT is available in both inpatient and outpatient treatment programs.


    Aftercare describes a variety of supportive services offered by rehab facilities to support you after your clinical treatment is complete.

    If you don’t have insurance, state-funded low- or no-cost treatment is available to Connecticut residents depending on your needs. Many treatment centers also offer payment options like sliding-scale fees in order to expand treatment access.
