Connecticut Drug Detox / Drug Detoxification

Normally, those suffering from a drug addiction cannot safely detox on their own. In fact, in some cases, attempting to do so can be deadly. During the drug detoxification process, the body is denied the toxins usually accumulated by the drug, resulting in uncomfortable and in some cases dangerous drug withdrawal symptoms. Sometimes a drug with a similar action is taken instead, to reduce the side effects and risks of withdrawal. Detoxification is often the first step in a drug addiction treatment program and should be followed by addiction treatment therapies. Behavioral-based therapy and/or a medication (if necessary) are available during Drug Detoxification . Detox alone with no follow-up is not an addiction treatment.

There are a number of drug detox programs available. Studies have shown that inpatient drug detox programs are usually more successful than outpatient detox, due in large part to the fact that they are medically based programs located within a drug rehab facility or addiction treatment center.

Connecticut Drug Rehab/ Drug Rehabilitation

Short-term and long-term drug rehabilitation, intensive outpatient drug rehab programs, outpatient and residential addiction treatment programs along with 12-step programs, individual, family and group therapy are all drug addiction treatment programs available for residents .

Marijuana Addiction Treatment / Marijuana Rehab in Connecticut

Marijuana Addiction Treatment programs focus on counseling and group support systems, as there is no medication for treating marijuana addiction at this time.
There are many types of marijuana addiction treatment programs available for residents. Marijuana Addiction Treatment types are determined by the individual’s level of use and other mental health and medical issues.

Some types of addiction treatment such as detoxification may last one week whereas other such as long-term, residential addiction treatment can last 30 days or longer.

Alcohol Addiction Treatment / Alcohol Rehab

Alcohol Addiction programs are specifically designed to help patients assess their dependency and to abstain from alcohol use. Importantly, the alcohol rehab programs offered to clients are evidence-based alcohol rehab programs which might include medications that specifically suppress the driving force of alcohol dependence. Addiction treatment programs use a cognitive behavioral therapy approach – how we think (cognitive) and how we act (behavior). This recognizes the powerful relationship between thoughts, feelings and behavior and the impact it has on addiction and therefore, recovery. Our alcohol addiction treatment is designed to help people explore feelings and behaviors which trigger the need for alcohol.

Court Ordered Addiction Treatment /Court Ordered Rehab

In addition to Medical reasons, many people seek addiction treatment for Legal reasons. For example, DUI and other substance related charges. The Cover Center for Recovery – Addiction Treatment Centers has experience working with attorneys and courts. Drug and Alcohol treatment is frequently an alternative to jail terms and other penalties.

Residential Addiction Treatment / Residential Rehab

The “Real Life Program” is a combination of our clinical, residential and activities program. Daily life challenges encountered during activities and residential life are processed in our therapeutic setting, allowing each individual the opportunity to apply skills and experience growth in the journey of recovery.

Outpatient Addiction Treatment / Outpatient Rehab

Outpatient Addiction Treatment programs include a variety of approaches for clients who seek therapeutic interventions in a private therapy setting.

Connecticut Cocaine Rehab / Cocaine Addiction Treatment

Behavioral interventions—particularly, cognitive-behavioral therapy—have been shown to be effective for decreasing cocaine use and preventing relapse. Cove Center for Recovery’s Cocaine Addiction Treatment is tailored to the individual patient’s needs which often involves a combination of addiction treatment therapies, social supports, and other services.

Heroin Rehab / Heroin Addiction Treatment

A range of treatments exist for heroin addiction, including medications and behavioral therapies. Science has taught us that when medication treatment is combined with other supportive services, patients are often able to stop using heroin (or other opiates) and return to stable and productive lives.

Heroin addiction treatment usually begins with medically assisted detoxification to help patients withdraw from the drug safely. Medications such as clonidine and, now, buprenorphine can be used to help minimize symptoms of withdrawal. However, detoxification alone is not treatment and has not been shown to be effective in preventing relapse—it is merely the first step.

Methamphetamine/Meth Rehab / Meth Addiction Treatment

Currently, the most effective treatments for methamphetamine addiction are comprehensive cognitive-behavioral interventions. For example, the Matrix Model—a behavioral treatment approach that combines behavioral therapy, family education, individual counseling, 12-step support, drug testing, and encouragement for non drug-related activities—has been shown to be effective in reducing methamphetamine abuse. Contingency management interventions, which provide tangible incentives in exchange for engaging in treatment and maintaining abstinence, have also been shown to be effective. There are no medications at this time approved to treat methamphetamine addiction; however, this is an active area of research for NIDA.

Prescription Drug Rehab / Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment

Several options are available for effectively treating addiction to prescription drugs in Connecticut, depending on the medication being abused. Approaches to treating addiction to pain relievers are drawn from research on treating addiction to heroin, also an opioid, and include medications such as naltrexone, methadone, and buprenorphine, combined with behavioral counseling.

NIDA’s National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network is sponsoring the first large-scale, multi-site study to test the effectiveness of buprenorphine/naloxone – a medication used to treat heroin addiction – as a treatment for addiction to prescription pain medication.

Treatment of addiction to prescription stimulants, such as Ritalin, is often based on behavioral therapies that have proven effective in treating addiction to cocaine and methamphetamine. While no medications have yet proven effective for the treatment of stimulant addiction, NIDA is supporting a number of studies examining medications with this potential.

The rate of dual diagnosis between drug use disorders and other mental illnesses or disorders calls for a comprehensive approach that identifies and evaluates both.

Gambling Addiction Treatment / Gambling Rehab

The overwhelming majority of people who gamble don’t have a problem with it. But pathological gambling, often called compulsive gambling, is a mental health disorder.

Eating Disorders Treatment / Eating Disorders Rehab

Anorexia, Bulimia, and Overeating are eating disorders. An eating disorder is an addiction. Eating Disorders are a result of a behavior known as “self-medicating” behavior. Eating disorders are serious health conditions that can be both physically and emotionally destructive.

Cutting, Self-Harm Addiction Treatment/ Cutting Rehab

Because self-harm is often associated with other psychological problems, it tends to be treated under the umbrella of a co-occurring disorder like PTSD, substance abuse, or borderline personality disorder. There is evidence, however, suggesting more improvement when the self-harming behavior is the primary focus of treatment.

Relapse Prevention Therapy/ After Care Therapies

The entire addiction treatment team is responsible and committed to designing a plan that will assist in preventing relapse for each patient. It is the patient’s responsibility to follow it.
