The company provides a comprehensive outpatient detoxification plan for anyone seeking treatment with a special focus on those who reach out for help with alcoholism, opioid dependency, and heroin addiction. The firm’s expert staff uses the most up-to-date evidence-based treatment methods to improve engagement, compliance, and relapse prevention.
CT Addiction Medicine, LLC. Inpatient vs. Outpatient Services
Many patients avoid beginning treatment for substance addiction. Mostly because they are fearful of, or unable to, step away from a job, young children, ill family members, or significant others for an extended period of time. No one becomes addicted overnight, and so no treatment will cure addiction overnight. At Connecticut Addiction Treatment we are familiar with these barriers to pursuing care and have maximized the addiction treatment services available on an outpatient basis. This allows for detoxification and treatment without a residential component, so that a patient can go home to their own bed every night during the detoxification period. Telemedicine options are available during COVID-19 to ensure the safety of all our patients and staff.
Sometimes the benefits of inpatient treatment services become so great that they outweigh the aversion factors. If it becomes necessary, Connecticut Addiction Treatment has close working relationships with treatment centers that provide higher levels of care for those that need it. Inpatient detox, partial hospitalization, and residential treatment for 28, 45, or 90 days are options that the treatment team can coordinate for each individual patient so that patient focus can stay fixed on recovery. The CT Addiction Medicine team works together to provide wellness support every step of the way.
What is Substance Abuse?
Until 1935, the year that two habitual problem drinkers referred to as “Bill W.” and “Dr. Bob” founded the Alcoholics Anonymous Fellowship, the vast majority of Americans believed that alcoholism and addiction were simply defects of character. Those who were able to maintain employment and family relationships while continuing to imbibe their substance of choice were often the target of derisive gossip. Those whose substance issues contributed to a harsher life – homelessness, jails, and institutions — were simply categorized as hopeless cases. Addiction was considered shameful, was not spoken of in polite company. As such, there was no safe place for any addict or alcoholic to seek effective solutions for problems stemming from, or related to, their substance abuse. We now know that these assumptions were wrong and that addiction is a DISEASE, not a choice or a bad habit.
