User Reviews: My daughter faced a lot of difficulties during her withdrawal. She had relapsed when she had received the treatment a year back. I had no idea that withdrawal could be so difficult for her. Connecticut Valley Hospital has an expert staff and made us realize that this happened because of physical and psychological weaknesses. They focused equally on medical and psychological treatment. And today my daughter is living an addiction-free life.

Treatment Info

CT Substance Abuse Facts

Connecticut is affected by the opioid epidemic sweeping across the country. In 2016, 917 people died from drug overdoses, a 25% increase from the year before

Deaths from fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid often found in the street supply of heroin, rose from only 14 in 2012 to 466 in 2016. The percent increase of fentanyl-involved deaths in one year alone (2015-2016) was 155%.

The increase in opioid abuse is also reflected in past-year heroin use data for Connecticut among people aged 12 and older, which went from 0.56% in 2013-2014 to 0.87% in 2014-2015 (by comparison, the national average was 0.3% and 0.33%, respectively).

Even though rates of drug overdose and heroin use have gone up, the number of people receiving medication-assisted treatment for opioid addiction appears to have gone down. In 2013, 15,509 people were receiving methadone in opioid treatment programs, according to single-day counts. While this was an increase from 11,849 in 2011, it decreased in 2014 to 14,072. The number of people receiving buprenorphine for opioid addiction decreased from 980 people to 544 people from 2013 to 2015.

Getting Addiction Treatment Help

Types of substance abuse treatment can vary from 24/7, live-in programs to once-a-week therapy sessions. Programs can also differ in terms of what features they offer, what kind of treatment philosophy they follow, and the experience and qualifications of their staff.

Other factors to take into consideration when researching programs include:

  • Whether they take your insurance.
  • What their visitation policies are.
  • How previous patients rated them online.

If you are seeking treatment for opioid addiction, you may also want to see if the program offers medication-assisted treatment.

Call us to get more information about rehab centers in Connecticut and how to enroll in a program.

Where Else Can I Find Help?

Paying for rehab without insurance is possible. You can see if the program uses a fee schedule based on your ability to pay or ask about other payment plans offered.

Other options you might employ to finance your treatment include health care credit cards, personal loans, crowdfunding, and borrowing from savings or friends and family.

State-funded rehab programs are also available. However, they may have waiting lists and fewer amenities than private programs. The Salvation Army and Catholic Charities also offer low-cost programs.
