Connecticut Long Term Drug Rehab Centers

Drug Rehab Centers Helpline
There is nothing more devastating for a substance abuser and his family than going to treatment and then relapsing. One of the main reasons that someone relapses is that he did not go to a long term drug rehab center. What is long term drug treatment? If you search for long term drug treatment centers in the Facility Locator of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, treatment program more than 30 days is considered a long term drug treatment center. Yet, research done by the National Insitute on Drug Abuse shows that less than 90 days treatment for someone severely afflicted with substance abuse is not successful. On this web-site, we consider long term drug and alcohol treatment to be 90 days or more.

Finding Longterm drug Treatment in Connecticut

You will see from our list of centers that offer long term drug and alcohol treatment that there are quite a few centers in Connecicut that do offer more than 30 days of treatment. When searching, be sure to ask what they mean by longterm treatment as for some that just means that it is more than 30 days. We strongly recommend that you chose a treatment centers that offers 90 days or more of residential treatment.

Per information published by the National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services, there were less treatment centers in Connecticut in 2006 than there werein 2002. It shows a decline over those years from 247 treatment centersin 2002 to only 209 in 2006. A majority of the centers are private non-oprofit centers with only 12 being private for profit. The decline in treatment centers is by far mostly in the private for profit drug and alcohol trearment centers with a loss of 32 centers in this category. Only 66 of the 209 centers offer any kind of residential care. The survey does not include how many centers offer longterm drug and alcohol treatment.

When talking to people we quite often end up referring to longterm drug rehab centers outside the state of Connecticut. There are a couple of reasons for that. First of all, it is a small state and it is almost always better for the addict to be away from their home environment. Also, there are limited modalities of trearment in Connecticut. There are, for emaply, no biophysical treatment program in the state and that is the most effective type of treatment wiht the highest success rate.

For the various types of drug rehab centers see our page Longterm Drug Rehab Programs.

Finding Long-term State Funded Services in Connecticut

Connecticut is divided into five service regions. The Block Grant money that funds state funded rehab is divided into these regions and programs are contracted through the state to provide low cost of free rehab, both inpatient and outpatient. If you go to this link, you can find the region assigned to your community and, from there, you can find state-funded programs that could meet your needs. You can comfer with us about the referral to see if it is a good choice.

State funded porgrams most often are not long term. The most important when someone needs treatment is to find some kind of help. The private long terms residential progtrams tend to have a better success rate.

Drug Addiction Information for Connecticut

According to informaiton published by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration per surveys in both 2004-2005 and from 2005-2006, Connecticut is one of the states with the highest amount of abuse of both alcohol and illicit drugs in the agegroup 18 - 25 years old.

Much of Connecticut's population are influenced by the drugs that are being pushed or sold in New York, with much of Connecticut being a residential setting for those that work in Manhattan. With this being the case, you will find that the usual suspects are to be found in abundance, such as heroin, cocaine, crack, methamphetamines and club drugs, such as ecstasy or some other designer drugs.

Adolescents in Connecticut are being swayed by the accessibility of Spice and Bath Salts, both of which are sold at truck stops and head-shops under many different names, but be sure that your teenagers know how to get these products. The shocking outcomes of these drugs are not benign, as they are purported to be. Both of these "designer" drugs are causing young people to have psychotic breaks and many emergency room visits are dedicated to young and inexperienced youth experimenting with what their friends tell them is harmless.

Naturally, it depends on the psychological makeup of the individual, but no adult can look back at their youth and feel that they were not nearly as emotionally sound as their grandiose attitudes would make them believe they are.

If you are looking for treatment in Connecticut, you have to keep in mind the same principals that were explained on the home page about the differences in longterm vs. short-term treatment. Don't be fooled by short-term programs that tell you that they can change your loved one's behaviors in 30 days or less. If you look at the gradient of high-risk behaviors and the cascade of negative influences that condition a person over years to get to where they are when someone begins to KNOW that they need treatment, then you can logically figure out that you can't change personal habits and attitudes by giving a person "lesson" on positive attitudes.

One mistake that we always see from these youth that lose control in violent ways, is that there is almost always the mention of psychiatric medications being taken. Prozac and other Serotonin uptake inhibitors have been proven to cause a feeling of rage and lack of connection to humanity when taken by adolescents, yet they are still be given to youth today.

If you have a young family member that is having difficulties emotionally, please listen to our pleas that are backed with years of wisdom and experience... DO NOT ALLOW THEM TO BE PUT ON PSYCHIATRIC MEDICATIONS in an attempt to handle their drug problem. It doesn't work and they run the risk of having that tragic disassociation with others that leads to suicide and homicide.

Our philosophy is to refer you to the best possible drug rehab center because we want the person to achieve a drug free life without substitute. Drug rehab centers in Connecticut will refer you to drug rehab centers that don't use drugs in any way.
