      Though Connecticut is a relatively small state in size, it has over 200 different rehab facilities. One of the greatest assets of Connecticut rehabs is their growing recognition of the link between substance abuse and mental disorders. The state’s data shows that anywhere from 12% to 45% of people in the state deal with co-occurring disorders. For this reason, there’s been a strong push for integrated mental health and substance abuse treatment.

      Facilities that offer this kind of care are called dual diagnosis rehabs. These facilities help people with underlying conditions ranging from low to high severity. The ultimate goal is to treat each person individually, gain an understanding of what factors contribute to substance abuse, and use that knowledge to prepare people for a life in recovery.

      The majority of Connecticut rehabs are outpatient facilities, many of which offer medication-assisted treatment for opioid dependence. But, the state has a larger portion of inpatient facilities than most. Inpatient or residential, treatment can often lead to greater success in recovery because of the reduced risk of relapse early on and the 24/7 access to intensive treatment. In general, though, the best treatment outcomes are correlated with more hours spent in treatment and recovery activities.

      At the height of this opioid crisis, Connecticut and its citizens have struggled significantly. The state has some of the highest opioid prescribing rates, which has led to serious consequences. In 2014 there were 568 drug-related deaths in Connecticut, but that number jumped quickly to 729 deaths in 2015—of which 188 involved the extremely potent opioid, fentanyl. This year, there are a projected 888 drug-related deaths in the state.

      Connecticut—Managing a Crisis with Progressive Prevention

      Connecticut was recently awarded a large federal grant to fund prevention programs and behavioral healthcare services to fight back against this problem. The state is responding with drug take-back days to collect unwanted prescription drugs, policymakers have passed a law limiting the length of some opioid prescription, and a prescription monitoring system has been established. Intravenous drug users can access clean syringes, and naloxone distribution programs are working to save more lives from overdoses.

      As its substance abuse problems deepen, Connecticut is strengthening its prevention and treatment efforts. There are quality treatment facilities in Connecticut that can help you or your loved one. Call us and we can help you in your search: 1-866-207-7436.

      • The DMHAS has a Community Services Division (CSD), working to integrate mental health and addiction services to better help those with co-occurring disorders. The Division is also involved in ensuring the quality of treatment facilities, overseeing new programs, connecting people to services, and managing the Community Call Line.

      • The Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery is a centralized recovery resource in the state, connecting people with Recovery Community Centers (RCC), recovery housing, employment services, and even telephone recovery support. The group unites people in recovery, family members and friends to advocate for recovery and educate the community.
      • The Greater Hartford Harm Reduction Coalition (GHHRC) is an advocate for people in recovery and those struggling with substance abuse, seeking to reduce the harms associated with drug abuse in Connecticut. The group promotes harm reduction policies as well as offers harm reduction services like access to clean syringes and naloxone training and distribution.
